Lodewijk Langeweg studied art in Amsterdam and became an artist-painter. When visting Mexico in 1974 he met an indigenous healer and underwent an initiation experience. It took him a decade to assimilate and understand the experience sufficiently to return to the healer and receive a second initiatory experience. He stayed with the healer in the mountains of Oaxaca for nearly 15 years and dedicated himself to a study that placed the experiences in the context of science and religion. After that period he moved to Sonora in northern Mexico, received additional initiatory-religious experiences, and continued for another seven years with his study. He returned to his country of origin, Holland, in 2005. The experience described in "The Joy in the Light" occurred in Bolinas, California in 1986.
