Get it at: http://www.suppressedhistories.net/wo.... This stunning survey of the cultural record—in rock art, sculpture, ceramics, seals, bronzes, codices—draws back the curtain obscuring medicine women around the world: the oracles, healers, trance-dancers and shape-shifters, the drummers and dreamers. Cultural studies historian Max Dashú underscores her informative commentary with archival world music and other music. The video includes chapters on invocation, sacred dance, drums, entheogens, shamanic flight; serpents, animal spirits, and goddesses with shamanic aspects. Ancient representations of divination, laying on of hands, staff dancers, regalia, paleolithic shamans and deified female adepts are augmented by an evocative musical underscore.
