Sacred Art and Secular Ritual of Disneyland

The rituals that bond humanity create our most transcendent and meaningful experiences, especially the sacred rituals of play. Although we may fail to recognize rites of play, they are always present in culture, providing a kind of psychological release for child and adult participants. Disneyland is an example of the kind of metaphorical container necessary for the construction of rituals of play. This work explores the original Disney theme park in Anaheim and challenges the disciplines of mythological studies, religious studies, film studies, and depth psychology to broaden traditional definitions of the kind of cultural apparatus that constitute temple culture and ritual by suggesting that Hollywood’s entertainment industry has developed a platform for mythic ritual. After setting the ritualized "stage", this book turns to the practices in Disneyland proper, analyzing the patrons’ traditions within the framework of the park and beyond. It explores Disneyland’s spectacles, through selected shows and parades, and concludes with an exploration of the park’s participation in ritual renewal.

Next, you visit Brazil and faith healers Otavia and João, who embody "a love that breaks through all boundaries of reason and rationality." South Dakota and Lakota Yuwipi Man Gary Holy Bull come next, as you glimpse at the inner life of one dedicated to the service of spirit. Then it's off to the jungles of Paraguay, where the insights of Guarani Forest Shaman Ava Tape Miri unveil the immediate unity of all creation. The traditional healers of Bali share vital lessons on balanced living, before you explore the secrets of Japan's masters of seiki jutsu. After hearing from the Shakers of St. Vincent, who use the power of mourning and ecstatic prayer to create community-based healing, you conclude your journey in Africa, where you witness the ceremonial dances of Kalahari Bushman Mabolelo Shikwe, "the man who says and knows everything." With 24 pages of full-color photographs, and poetry and prayers from the shamans themselves, Shamans of the World brings you authentic "first wisdom" directly from its source. Here is an unprecedented collection of our spiritual roots that offers a radical new understanding of the planet we share.

Heilgeheimnisse aus dem Regenwald und moderne Wissenschaft. Alberto Villoldo ist einer der bekanntesten und meistgelesenen Schamanen unserer Zeit. Als er eine niederschmetternde Diagnose bekommt – fünf verschiedene Arten von Hepatitis, toxische Bakterien im gesamten Körper und Parasiten im Gehirn – ist er dem Tode nah. Zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben steht er vor der Herausforderung, das Wissen, das er seit Jahrzehnten selbst lehrt, radikal an sich selbst anzuwenden. Mit Erfolg! Villoldo hat sich selbst geheilt – mit One Spirit Medizin, einer höchst wirksamen Synthese aus uralten schamanischen Methoden wie Fasten, Meditieren und Visionssuche und aktuellsten Erkenntnissen aus der modernen Wissenschaft. Diese umfassen das Entgiften von Körper und Geist durch Superfoods und Nahrungsergänzungsmittel, das Ausschalten der »Todesuhr« in unseren Zellen durch Beeinflussung der Mitochondrien, Energiearbeit zur Reparatur von Gehirn und Körper auf Quantenebene und eine revolutionäre Methode, in nur sechs Wochen einen grunderneuerten, vitalen und widerstandsfähigen Körper zu kreieren. Mit One Spirit Medizin gelingt Villoldo der lange überfällige Brückenschlag vom Jahrtausende alten schamanischen Erfahrungsschatz zu mordernsten medizinischen Erkenntnissen. Mit vielen Übungen und Rezepten.

A unique and accessible analysis of the belief systems of the prehistoric people of Europe Both extensively researched and fast-paced, this groundbreaking book tackles all the big subjects in archaeology: the spread of humans from Africa, the rise of social groups, the adoption of agriculture, the construction of monuments, the emergence of metal, and the fall of the Celtic tribes. In showing that belief was central to these epic changes, as well as influencing the most mundane, everyday task, a new understanding of our prehistoric past emerges. Evocative vignettes take readers back in time to experience for themselves the sights, smells, and sounds of the past. It is only with the advent of modern science that we can begin to unravel the lives of those who lived thousands of years ago, people who were adept at entering trance and found the "other world" there to be as real as their own. This is a new way to approach prehistory, putting people and the beliefs that they held center stage. For without understanding people's beliefs, we will never comprehend their world.

The Shamanic Themes in Armenian Folktales

“In Marxist anthropological theory, shamanism represented one of the early forms of religion that later gave rise to more sophisticated beliefs in the course of human advancement … The premise of Marxism was that eventually, at the highest levels of civilization, the sacred and religion would eventually die out” (Znamenski, 2007, p.322). Though history has of course since disproved this, the theory clearly had a great bearing on what was written in the former Soviet Union about shamanism, and also on people’s attitudes in the former Soviet Republics towards such practices. On the other hand, it has been suggested that “all intellectuals driven by nationalist sentiments directly or indirectly are always preoccupied with searching for the most ancient roots of their budding nations in order to ground their compatriots in particular soil and to make them more indigenous” (Znamenski, 2007, p.28). Although this might apply to searching for the roots of Christianity in Armenia, when it comes to searching for the roots of pagan practices, interest on the part of the people of Armenia is generally speaking not so forthcoming. This impasse, coupled with the effects of the repressions against religions, including shamanism, unleashed by the Soviet government between the 1930s and 1950s, along with the recent surge of interest in the Armenian Orthodox church, a backlash to the seventy years of officially sanctioned atheism, makes research into the subject no easy business. However, hopefully this study will at least in some small way help to set the process in motion.

Die Inkas, eine der größten Zivilisationen des amerikanischen Kontinents, waren nicht nur berühmte Städtebauer, sondern besaßen auch ein außergewöhnliches Medizinsystem.

Alberto Villoldo studierte 25 Jahre lang die heilende Macht dieser energiemedizinischen Tradition. Aufbauend auf dem alten Heilsweg, stellte er ein praktikables Programm zusammen, das es ermöglicht, sich selbst und andere zu heilen und Krankheiten zu vermeiden. Kernstück seines Konzepts sind die lichtvollen Energiefelder, die den materiellen Körper umgeben und sich im Krankheitsfall verändern. Schritt für Schritt macht Villoldo den Leser mit den Techniken vertraut, die Aura zu sehen und das Energiefeld zu harmonisieren.
