John is very much like you. He was born and raised in a small mid-western town in rural Wisconsin. He went to church, went off to college, got married, and eventually got divorced. He lived within the confines of corporate America working for several of the largest banks in the United States. he gained status, accumulated cars, a big home and all the trappings of living the American Dream

Then through a period of self examination he started fundraising for a national charity. Through this service for others he began to find himself.

Driving to his executive office he really began to question an unexamined life. It was time for a change and re-invent who John "was". That's when the path of the Shaman opened up and presented itself in an unexpected way. John took action into the unknown and trusted his intuition. John met his future self through his shamanic work and journey. When John stepped on this path he met his twin flame and wife Kristen who shares similar core beliefs of spirituality and living the life you deserve.

A life free from traditional expectations, and projections, and be in a place of service to others.

John works with individuals and small group workshops or retreats. When spirit calls; John offers Spiritual Expeditions to destinations whose cultures have a rich tradition in earth-based spirituality in Peru and may include the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. The medicine men and women he has met on these expeditions are the source of his teachings and practices. These trips serve as an immersion into the teachings of the shamans, bringing travelers to a deeper level on the spiritual/healing journey.

Shamanic sessions include chakra clearing, chakra balancing, soul retrieval, and energizing the luminous light body through the release of negative energies.

These private sessions can be used to reduce stress, activate happiness and joy, increase your sense of well-being, help you manage life transitions such as divorce, death of a loved one, health issues, stress and anxiety, and unexpected events such as accidents and emotional wounding. These wounds may come from a past life, during birth or as a small child. You may have no idea where this wounding occurred but nevertheless it did. Those are the unknown and unseen events that the shaman tracks and removes from your energy field.

Symptoms including depression, insomnia, panic, fear, repetitive thoughts, emotional highs and lows, can be relieved or eliminated in a series of shamanic healing sessions.

“My trip with John has been the single greatest experience of my life.  I have more inner peace and clarity than ever before, and I now see where my life path is leading me.  I finally feel like I’m living in my purpose.”

- J. Peters

John Schwab is certified shamanic practitioner, a graduate of The Four Winds Light Body School & has trained in the US & South America.

The Four Winds Light Body School offers the world’s most extensive professional trainings in energy medicine based on the 50,000- year-old wisdom teachings of the ancient Americans.

The goal of the Four Winds is to teach individuals how to become modern day shamans. Modern day shamans are men and women who are willing to be visionaries and healers in their families and communities. They learn to live in balance, and share their skills to be of deepest service and make a difference in the world.

The program was developed by founder Dr. Alberto Villoldo, who has spent more that 30 years studying with the medicine and wisdom keepers of the Andes and the Amazon.

John's mentor is Alberto Villoldo. Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., a psychologist and medical anthropologist, has studied the healing practices of the Amazon and Inka shamans for more than 25 years. While at San Francisco State University, he founded the Biological Self-Regulation Laboratory to study how the mind creates psychosomatic health and disease. Dr. Villoldo directs The Four Winds Society, where he trains individuals throughout the world in the practice of energy medicine. Founder of The Four Winds Society, Alberto instructs individuals throughout the world in the practice of energy medicine. Dr. Villoldo has written numerous best-selling books, including Shaman, Healer, Sage; The Four Insights, Courageous Dreaming and Power Up Your Brain.

Dr. Alberto Villoldo studied with a number of the Laika elders to distill the essence of their healing practices of energy medicine. He trained with the jungle medicine people and traveled and collected stories and healing practices from the Nazca region to Lake Titcaca, the Sea on Top of the World, which legends say the Inka were born.

Working with Don Antonio Alberto reconstructed the many threads of the Laika healing traditions to create a set of sacred technologies that transform the body, heal the soul, and can change the way we live and the way we die. They explain that we are surrounded by a Luminous Energy Field (LEF) whose source is located in infinity, a matrix that maintains the health and vibrancy of the physical body.

"When you practice living consciously, you're fully conscious of the impact of each thought, intention, and action you have, and you take care to make them positive and healing instead of selfish and destructive."
