Demystifying Shamanism: An Illustrated Presentation with Dr. Stanley Krippner
Date: Friday August 28th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $12
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn

European missionaries claimed that shamans were doing the work of the devil. Soviet Communists persecuted them because they were not Marxists. American psychiatrists labeled them "schizophrenic." However, recent psychological and anthropological research reveals that shamans are among the most talented members of their community, and have survived over the millennia due to their talents as healers, counselors, and storytellers. This lecture will provide examples of contemporary shamans as well as suggest what can be learned from their herbal knowledge, their sacred rituals, and their community service.

Stanley Krippner, PhD, is Alan Watts Professor of Psychology at Saybrook University. Formerly, he was director of the Maimonides Medical Center Dream Research Laboratory, in Brooklyn, NY.  His books include Demystifying Shamans and The Voice of Rolling Thunder. He has interviewed and observed shamans from six continents, and has participated in several shamanic rituals in Brazil, Russia, and Peru.
