The Four Insights

  Wisdom, Power, and Grace of the Earthkeepers, Los Angeles: Hay House, 2007.

Healing the Luminous Body

  The Way of the Shaman, Sacred Mysteries: 2004, featuring paintings by Alex Grey. Healing the Luminous Body was my first access to Dr. Villoldo’s unique healing methods that he presents and explains in more detail in his books.

Shaman, Healer, Sage

  How to Heal Yourself and Others with the Energy Medicine of the Americas, New York: Harmony Books, 2000. Shaman, Healer, Sage is perhaps Alberto Villoldo’s best book.

  Physical Dynamics and Character Structure: How the Body Reveals Personality, Alachua, Fl: Bioenergetic Press 1958/2003 It is noteworthy to see that Alexander Lowen wrote The Language of the Body before Pleasure: A Creative Approach to Life, the book I discussed earlier. This present book is way more theoretical. I admit it is also much more difficult… Continue reading The Language of the Body

Pleasure

  A Creative Approach to Life, Alachua, Fl: Bioenergetic Press, 1970/2004.

We are living in another era than Dr. Lowen did. The control… Continue reading Pleasure

Tantra of Sound

  How to Enhance Intimacy, With Andi Goldman, Charlottesville, VA: Hampton Roads Publishing, 2005. Tantra of Sound was really a discovery for me! On first sight, and compared to Jonathan Goldman’s earlier book Healing Sounds, this present book appears to be edited in a more professional way, and in fact, it’s from a different publisher. The choice… Continue reading Tantra of Sound
