I read the book 'Shaman, Healer, Sage' a few years ago and it changed the way I think about healing and medicine. Alberto Villoldo has to be the most open, disarming and funniest shamans alive. In this film version of his book, he doesn't try to be cryptic, doesn't try to hide his knowledge, although he does warn you that the shamanic path to healing is long and difficult. This film really shows him as a person, how he developed from a western medical scientist into someone with a deep, practical understanding of the Amazonian and Incan shamanic medicine. You won't be a shaman after watching this film, but you will understand what it takes to become one. Highly Recommended.
