About J.E. Williams

Born in 1949, J. E. Williams spent his childhood in a farming community of New England. Nature fascinated him from an early age and he spent as much time as he could alone in the woods with trees and animals. By the age of twelve he had already read Thoreau and Darwin. His passion was to become a wildlife biologist and naturalist-writer. However, after attending the University of Alaska, he decided that direct experience was as valuable as classroom learning.

In 1967, he lived with the Yupik people of St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea. Since then he has shared part of his life with indigenous tribes, medicine men, and shamans. While in the Artic, in a series of visions, he realized that a new, deeply mystical, eco-spiritual path was emerging. Born from the indigenous traditions of North and South America, it emphasizes balanced emotions, ethical discipline, wholesome conduct, and thoughtful discernment.

He began his journeys in Peru in 1996. His current work with the Q’ero in the Peruvian Andes includes building projects, education, and community health. He has been initiated into the traditional shamanic lineage of the Q’ero and is an adopted family member. In 2010, he founded AyniGLOBAL, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting indigenous culture, environment, and intellectual rights.

In the 1970s, he continued studies in health and medicine, earning his doctor of Oriental Medicine degree in 1985. He has over twenty-five years of experience practicing integrative medicine and is an internationally known expert in viral immunity. He is the author of numerous scientific papers and articles on sustainable medicine, ethnobotany, and biodiversity. His books include: Viral Immunity, Prolonging Health, Beating the Flu, The Andean Codex and Light of the Andes on Peruvian Shamanism, and Winter Rain, a book of poetry. He teaches at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Division of Complementary and Integrative Medicine, and NOVA Southeastern University.

After 28 years in California, he now lives along the Gulf of Mexico in southern Florida, but spends much of his time in the Peruvian upper Amazon and Andes among traditional indigenous shamans where he continues non-profit work and teaches Earth-based wisdom and heart-centered spirituality.
