Snake Jaguar Hummingbird Eagle... Problems aren't solved at the level they were created. From which level of awareness are you processing your challenges, your life? A problem at one level is an opportunity at the next level. You don't have to engage a deadly disease fated by family genes when viewed from hummingbird. Learn the lesson that it (the disease) came to teach you without going there physically. These teachings come from High Shamans of the Andes. They are hoping we are ready to shift. ...more

In The Four Insights Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D. teaches the ancient wisdom of "The Earthkeepers" as he was taught it by his Laika mentor, don Antonio. don Antonio was "one of the last of the living Laika" who took the author "under his wing and trained me for nearly 25 years. . . [don Antonio:] was a descendent of the Inka, whose culture was masculine and militaristic. The Laika's teachings were from an earlier time, when the feminine aspect of the divine was recognized."

The author makes general re

It's not just a read. There are exercises. Usually, with a book of this kind I'll read it all the way through first, and then if it seems worthwhile I'll do the exercises. The Four Insights takes shamanism deeper than most shamanic books, and it was clear from the gitgo that I was going to take it slow, do the exercises as I went, when I had time to clear my mind and do them right. So far I've done the first three with excellent results.
The narrative is also quite good. Villoldo is a PhD and has

I enjoyed this insightful book. Haha
The author was easy to follow and thorough yet simple with his explanations and examples. It's wonderful at any level that you're absorbing it, so I'm going to pass it to another that needs it.

I will need to read this again (and probably again) to digest everything. Definitely a reference book.

This book is either full of insights or utter drivel and I haven't made up my mind which yet.
I loved this book, it gave me so much insight and helped me open myself to healing.

This book is kind of a mishmash. It's like The Four Agreements meets Zen Buddhism meets self-help, with some chakra balancing exercises, too. As is typical in this sort of work, pop "quantum physics" makes the rounds as well. I know it's supposed to be inspired by ancient Latin American shamanism that the author learned from a wise man in Peru, but I'm a bit skeptical of claims of ancient wisdom.

I actually put this book aside a couple of times, because of the statement that we can create realit

This book is excellent! For anyone wanting to explore the mystics of the Laika who live high in the Andes in Peru, this book is for you. Alberto Villoldo is an inspiration and shares the Earthkeepers four insights om such a way that the reader is taken on a journey of spirit.

An ancient wisdom is bound to surface to allow Humanity to better itself - an it did, yet again, through this book. It is written beautifuly and prolifically.
Worth reading every word of it.
my shaman said i should pick this up, so i have...i always return to it at the right time...i look forward to applying the principles I have learned in this book

Enjoyable and easy read, with info and meditational tools to help people step beyond their ego, and into love and healing for themselves and fellow humans and animals.
This will be my bible for the next few years. Perfect for a good read-through once . . . and then reference later. Modern age shaman practices . . . very insightful.
I am taking classes with Alberto and this is a great read. It is not the 4 agreements! It is a different book. It is about energy and how it effects your life.
Russell Four
This a very powerful ans insightful book,I've had it a long time but just finished it.I like it very much as it brings different perspectives to light!
The kind of book everyone should read and reread over and over. I think I might just buy all my friends & family a copy.
Shannon Ritchie
Loved this book. A must read for anyone who wants to learn inner peace and how to let go of the Ego.
