Evolver Spores: Shamanic Panic
In tribal societies, shamans are healers and visionary leaders who go through dangerous initiations to gain knowledge from the spirit world. Modern culture repressed and dismissed shamanism as archaic and irrational. Today, our society seems increasingly irrational, unable to change its course in the face of looming environmental and economic catastrophe. Meanwhile, shamanic practices such as soul retrieval, journeys with sacred plants, and ecstatic dance are gaining popularity.
What meaning and value do these techniques have for us today? During an evening of 'Shamanic Panic', we will discuss, experience, and explore. Hosted by Evolver.net and ShamanPortal.
