  • Shamanism, born in the northern Eurasian regions, has its origins in an innate animistic feeling, present in the soul of man. The shaman represents the link between men and spirits: in a state of trance, he receives revelations from the gods, heals the sick and accompanies the dying in the afterlife.

    Shamanism, born in the northern Eurasian regions, has its origins in an innate animistic feeling, present in the soul of man. The shaman represents the link between men and spirits: in a state of trance, he receives revelations from the gods, heals the sick and accompanies the dying in the afterlife. This work studies the mythology, the universe of the shaman, its roles, its initiation, the sessions of trance, the plants and the sacred animals. Following an unusual route, we look for traces of the existence of a primordial shamanic feeling: from the world of the ancient Scandinavians to that of the Celts, from the Amerindian populations of the North to the ancient Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans. We also discover that the contemporary cultural world reveals more or less obvious shamanic echoes, from music to literature, from cinema to video games. This book wants to show that certain shamanic practices can still mark the relationship of man with the environment that surrounds him and that the transcendence of shamanic teaching can be perceived, even today, in the depths of the soul. human. “Shamanisms, the plural has its importance. The work of Alessandra Orlandini Carcreff has the merit of reflecting the diversity and multiplicity of names and representations. »(Olivier Truc, Le Monde)
