As well as being a Permaculture faithful, I'm also a student of Shamanic Healing through the Four Winds Society http://www.thefourwinds.com in the States. The teachings come from the Inka of Peru and Shaman of the Amazon.
The main process is called Illumination. We are energtic beings, our physical bodies are reflections of our energetic and emotional reality. Quantum physics endorses this. When we are wounded we carry the scars as blockages in our energy field. These blockages inhibit our emotional development and manifest as disease.
Illumination (which can sucessfully be performed across distance) removes the blockages, allowing life to be lived at it's highest potential.
