“By the study, experimentation and practice of natural healing, women are changing and charting the future of health care. Despite heavy resistance or lack of recognition from patriarchal medicine, they are nevertheless making positive changes that will continue and increase. Women’s emphasis on one-to-one work practiced in mutual agreement and participation is very different from mechanized and big-money medicine, and has results and successes far beyond expectations. The emphasis on self-healing returns health care to the consumer, to women’s lives and bodies, for the first time in centuries. The medical system cannot control a movement held in the hands of women, though it may try. Women are taking control again of healing, our daughter-right, for the first time since the matriarchies and the Inquisition.”—from the Introduction From the Trade Paperback edition.

Die Inkas, eine der größten Zivilisationen des amerikanischen Kontinents, waren nicht nur berühmte Städtebauer, sondern besaßen auch ein außergewöhnliches Medizinsystem. Ihre Schamanen entwickelten vor mehr als 5000 Jahren eine Technik, Krankheiten mit Geist und Licht zu heilen. Alberto Villoldo studierte 25 Jahre lang die heilende Macht dieser energiemedizinischen Tradition. Aufbauend auf dem alten Heilsweg, stellte er ein praktikables Programm zusammen, das es ermöglicht, sich selbst und andere zu heilen und Krankheiten zu vermeiden. Kernstück seines Konzepts sind die lichtvollen Energiefelder, die den materiellen Körper umgeben und sich im Krankheitsfall verändern. Schritt für Schritt macht Villoldo den Leser mit den Techniken vertraut, die Aura zu sehen und das Energiefeld zu harmonisieren.

Why do these women worship a goddess, and who is she? What do they do when they meet together? What do they do alone? What attracts them to feminist spirituality? Are they part of a passing cult or are they creating a new religion that will one day take its place alongside Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in the West? What are their hopes for the world, and what are they doing to see their dreams actualized? Living in the Lap of the Goddess answers these questions and more. Drawing on scores of interviews with spiritual feminists, participant-observation in feminist spirituality's rituals and retreats, and a close reading of the movement's many texts, sociologist of religion Cynthia Eller describes this innovative spiritual movement in detail. Among the topics covered are the origins of feminist spirituality; its use of ritual, myth and magic; and the politics with which spiritual feminists determinedly intertwine their religion
