In Trance

This photo depicts a Taoist shaman in trance. In a trance, it is believed that the shaman's soul leaves his body to roam the other worlds. It is thus that the shaman encounters teachers and deities, and perceives the other worlds as realities. It is through this teachers and deities that the shaman acquire healing power. The Chinese in my city will consult a shaman as an alternative healing solution.

Have you seen a shaman in your city?

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
