Medicine Women and Priest Sorcerers Length: 40mins
Published: 2 Nov, 2017
The attendees are certainly an eclectic mix: medicine women from New Zealand and North Korea rub shoulders with priest sorcerers from the Navajo of America, the Sami of Norway and the Xhosa of South Africa. However, everyone gains from the sharing of cultures: as one shaman observes, 'all of us are from different lines of the spider-web but we all go to the centre of the spider in different ways of getting there'.


The participants have a busy schedule. They air their own scepticism about modern Western interest in indigenous beliefs and moot arguments against scientific condescension of their rituals. We are then given an unparalleled insight into shamanistic rites and, finally, how the mingling of practical medicine and religious belief can thrive in today's society.
