Memoir, Andean adventure, and quest for wisdom, the book is an even deeper, wiser, more moving tour of the extraordinary, with Villoldo a refreshing guide, frank amd engaging. --San Francisco Chronicle A narrative rich in myth, history, and metaphor. --Booklist Island of the Sun recounts the American psychologist Alberto Villoldo's return to Peru in search of the Quechua Indian shaman Don Jicaram. The authors' earlier book, Dance of the Four Winds, described Villoldo's first initiation, under Don Jicaram, into the secrets of the Inca Medicine Wheel and the spiritual journey of the Four Winds. Villoldo had begun that journey in the South, "where one goes to confront and shed the past." With use of the powerful mind-altering plant ayahuasca, he had continued to the West, a direction also inhabited by fear and death. Now in Island of the Sun he prepares himself for the journey to the North, where lies the wisdom of the ancient Inca shamans. Traveling from Machu Picchu to the "Island of the Sun," a sacred site in Bolivia, Villoldo uncovers a profound secret about the journey to the East--the journey home. ALBERTO VILLOLDO, Ph.D., is also the author of Dance of the Four Winds, Millenium, Healing States, and Realms of Healing. ERIK JENDRESEN is a playwright and screenwriter.
"Dance of the Four Winds" recounts the adventures of the American psychologist Alberto Villoldo as he journeys to Peru to explore the visionary ceremonies of the native shamans. Here Quecha masters use the jungle plant "ayahuasca" to further their spiritual progress along the four paths of the Medicine Wheel. Entering a magical realm of enigmatic sorcerers and powerful animal totems, Villoldo confronts the hidden powers of his own mind as he unlocks the secrets of the human psyche.
Legends tell of Vilcabamba, a lost City of Gold somewhere in the mountains of Peru, that was built by the Incas and mysteriously abandoned. One day an explorer sets out in search of this fabled city. He claims the Mountains of the Moon, descends into the Valley of the Shadows, and explores the River of the Rainbow, but the ancient city and its gold are nowhere to be found. One night, while the explorer dreams by his campfire, a voice emerges from the flames - the voice of Grandmother Fire.
