At this time of year our summer season with busy markets and art and craft shows is still in full swing. On top of that I am kept busy with students, bringing teachings into resorts and health care facilities and with patients coming to the house.
This is the problem with writing a blog about working as a shaman. Most of the “more interesting” things are strictly confidential. I can not write about the consultations with patients, about individual cases and problems or private hours with students.
Oftentimes, when I bring drums and teachings into groups and healing and recovery centres, I – and the students, that accompany me have to sign strict confidentiality agreements and especially taking pictures is prohibited.
At the same time however, it just may happen, that the caretakers themselves are videotaping the sessions and circle activities.
Sometimes that makes me wonder, what will they use these videos for?
Will they try to replicate my teachings?
Are they becoming part of the public domain?
Are they on U-tube somewhere??
Here a few pictures, that recently were put into one of the many public networking sites and so are OK to re-post here.
Here I am on the annual Baysville Craft show, showing of my large Siberian medicine Pouch.
It worked! 🙂
I sold it! Yaaaaayyy!!!
