Woman Shaman: the Ancients

Woman Shaman: the Ancients

Region: Nationwide
Location: San Francisco Bay Area


A new video by Max Dashú reveals the rich cultural record of medicine women, oracles, healers, trance-dancers, shapeshifters, drummers, and dreamers. She shares rare images of women's ceremonies in Saharan and Azerbaijani rock art; Indus tiger women, Spanish wolf women and Zimbabwean lion women; ecstatic dancers in Chinese bronzes, Mexican codices, Cretan seals; shamanic sculptures from Ecuador and Japan and the Arctic. The double-disc set includes chapters on sacred dance, staffs, rattles, fans and mirrors; flight; entheogens; serpents, animal spirits, and goddesses with shamanic aspects. This unprecedented global view of female shamans uncovers disregarded depictions in rock art, sculpture, codices, bronzes, and ceramic paintings. Knowledgeable, insightful commentary is underscored with archival world music from Smithsonian Folkways, and from Flute by Cynth; Yolanda Martinez; Layne Redmond; Luisah Teish; Tiokasin Ghosthorse; Suzanne Teng; Viviana Guzmán, Ensemble Pachamama, and more. Taste the trailer! To experience the beauty, power and wisdom of these spiritual legacies is medicine for the spirit.
