Siberian and Sami Shamanism: Death and resurrection – the ecstatic journey of a Shaman
Thurs 22 Feb : SPEAKER: Anu VIKEVAINEN – of FINN Roots INFO POSTER
The shaman is a gifted individual who enters into a trance and climbs up to the world of the gods and the animals, to bring back knowledge that is useful to the tribe.
Shamanism depicts the archaic understanding of parallel worlds and an animistic view of all existence.
The act of a shaman is seen as a technique of ecstasy, but it is a phenomenon in an entire worldview, the remains of which can be seen in what we call religions today.
The Sami people, who inhabit northern parts of Finland and large areas of Norway and Sweden, follow shamanistic beliefs and practices. There is a long tradition of shamanism in North Asia, particularly in Siberia.
