U Shein Sayargyi
A shaman and healer from Yangon in Myanmar. Mainly working with people releasing their possessions and occupations of other spirits he later began to heal with medical plant and developed a remedy called Gold Ash-Powder. The exact composition and the production process were given to him through visions and dreams by his „Devas“.

Don Agustin Rivas Vasquez
Through his music and healing powers, Don Agustin is a master alchemist, who knows how to massage the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual bodies, and bring well-being to people's lives. He embodies, in my opinion, what shamanism is all about; namely, the personal engagement with the manifold forces surrounding us, and the capacity to turn them into beneficent and beautiful energy patterns to bring health, love, happiness and prosperity into people's lives. Don Agustin not only engages the natural and supernatural forces surrounding us, but also the very concrete forces of modernization impinging evermore on cultures and traditions in remote areas of the world. He embraces and welcomes change, and can turn consumer objects into magical healing tools, and pollutants such as stress into fertilizer for the earth.
