In ancient times, only the wisest were trusted with medical knowledge, for it bears power over life and death. The remedies and methods of those seers may have been abandoned by modern civilization, but they have been preserved, and retain their power.

Samael Aun Weor lived in close contact with the mysterious natives of the Sierra Nevada of South America, who have been in self-imposed isolation from the rest of the world for hundreds of years. The priests and doctors of that region taught him and his wife Litelantes their system of training and many of their healing methods, revealed here to the public for the first time. Perhaps most astonishing is that the philosophy and spiritual concepts are fundamentally the same as the ancient knowledge of the Greeks, Tibetans, Hindus, and others.
This collection of hundreds of techniques and practices will guide you to awaken consciousness, perform healing for yourself and others, and return to the core medical knowledge of the ages.
