“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.”

The Four Winds is the World's Leader in Energy Medicine Training
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.
Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D.
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.
