About the Book

As a child, author Ray Rizzo suffered a head injury that left him with severe headaches and occasional visionary states. At seventeen, he began to study yoga and to practice fasting, meditation, and shamanism, which alleviated his chronic symptoms. In his own recovery, he discovered an ability to assist others in their healing processes—a quest that would culminate in a traditional shamanic apprenticeship deep in the Amazon jungle. There, after nearly a month of isolation and using more than ten years of experience in the healing arts, he developed his unique synthesis.

The style is no style.
The goal is to practice
what is most efficient and effective.

Weightlessness includes guidance on a number of techniques and topics, including
