About the Book
"Gonzalo Bénard's work offers an antidote to materialist ideology", Graham Hancock
"Gonzalo Bénard’s teachings are an antidote to the consumerism that the Western World offers. And that his knowledge on consciousness derives from direct, sensory experience is something that mainstream science cannot comprehend, nor compete with."
Holly Lasko at Graham Hancock's AoM December 2016
The author went through 3 days of brain death to come back to life. He lived 3 years in Himalayas learning with old shamans and Buddhist masters, and spent some time in Africa with shamans and healers. Since a very young age he accepted and understood that he had open channels of energy; that he could use the energetic channels to heal himself and others. And that you can also open your channels to the Cosmic Consciousness.
In this book Bénard tells you how to heal, yourself and others, and how to be connected with your higher self, sharing his own journeys and experiences.
Bénard, a shaman himself following the Tibetan Bon tradition, explains all this in a simpler manner, and how the daily practice of meditation can make your life much more simple than it is. How you should listen and feel for a better life on Earth connected to the Universe.
Living in the now: feeling one with the whole.
Connected. Being energy on the same wave of frequency as the Earth.
Being yourself a Shaman and a Totem, guiding your own, connected to the collective and cosmic consciousness.
