About the author:
Parallel to an international law career in Germany, Switzerland and the United States, Dr. Peter Fritz Walter (Pierre) focused upon fine art, cookery, astrology, musical performance, social sciences and humanities.
He started writing essays as an adolescent and received a high school award for creative writing and editorial work for the school magazine.
After finalizing his law diplomas, he graduated with an LL.M. in European Integration at Saarland University, Germany, and with a Doctor of Law title from University of Geneva, Switzerland, in 1987.
He then took courses in psychology at the University of Geneva and interviewed a number of psychotherapists in Lausanne and Geneva, Switzerland. His interest was intensified through a hypnotherapy with an Ericksonian American hypnotherapist in Lausanne. This led him to the recovery and healing of his inner child.
In 1986, he met the late French psychotherapist and child psychoanalyst Françoise Dolto (1908-1988) in Paris and interviewed her. A long correspondence followed up to their encounter which was considered by the curators of the Dolto Trust interesting enough to be published in a book alongside all of Dolto's other letter exchanges by Gallimard Publishers in Paris, in 2005.
After a second career as a corporate trainer and personal coach, Pierre retired as a full-time writer, philosopher and consultant.
His nonfiction books emphasize a systemic, holistic, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective, while his fiction works and short stories focus upon education, philosophy, perennial wisdom, and the poetic formulation of an integrative worldview.
Pierre is a German-French bilingual native speaker and writes English as his 4th language after German, Latin and French. He also reads source literature for his research works in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch. In addition, Pierre has notions of Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Japanese.
All of Pierre's books are hand-crafted and self-published, designed by the author. Pierre publishes via his Delaware company, Sirius-C Media Galaxy LLC, and under the imprints of IPUBLICA and SCM (Sirius-C Media).

Short Biography, Book Reviews, Quotes, and Comments
Peter Fritz Walter
'Alberto Villoldo and Healing the Luminous Body' (Great Minds Series, Vol. 10) is a study about one of the greatest and most gifted Western shamans the world has seen.
He 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, and it was with this research intention in mind that he left his orderly life and ventured into the Andes to find a knowledge that dates back thousands of years among native shamans and natural healers.
Villoldo directs the Four Winds Society, where he trains individuals throughout the world in the practice of energy medicine and soul retrieval.
He has training centers in New England, California, the UK, Holland, and Park City, Utah. The author of the best-seller 'Shaman, Healer, Sage', Villoldo now draws on his vast knowledge to bring us a practical and revolutionary way to discover the source of an original wound that may have occurred during childhood or in a former lifetime, and that derailed our destiny. He then shows us how to track forward along our time lines to find our best and highest future.
The book comes with extensive book reviews and quotes, and comments, as well as illustrations, and two bonus reviews of the books 'Ayahuasca' by Ralph Metzner and 'The Cosmic Serpent' by Jeremy Narby.
