Dr Alberto Villoldo

Dr Alberto Villoldo is a bestselling author, medical anthropologist, teacher, healer and Shaman, with a PhD in Psychology.


Join me as I ask Dr Alberto:

  • What is a Shaman?
  • How did he discover Shamanism?
  • What is the science behind plant medicines, or entheogens?
  • His ingredients for a great recipe for life!

And Dr Alberto will share with us:

  • The importance of waking up, growing up and showing up.
  • The best diet for accessing our higher ‘discoverer’ brain.
  • The plant medicines that switch on longevity genes.


Dr Alberto has a deep and broad knowledge, and it was a privilege to have him share some of it with us, like:

“The dream of the western society has become such a nightmare that everybody is trying to wake up from it” .

“Find your own light so that you don't have to be blinded by the light of another.”

“When you turn on this higher brain, then spirituality is inevitable.”
