Max Dashu offers her inspirational visual presentation on women as drummers, dreamers, diviners, and oracles, medicine women, ecstatic dancers, shapeshifters, and spirit-riders. This is an opportunity to see what is probably the most comprehensive visual record of female shamanic traditions around the world.

Woman is by nature a shaman, says a Chukchee proverb from Siberia. Yet the female dimension of this spiritual realm has been systematically slighted, even though women have been at its forefront in countless cultures. Max takes us through a rich international terrain of medicine women and seeresses, prehistoric to contemporary. This will be a rare opportunity to taste their wisdom, and to water your visionary dreamscape with spiritual riches.

From the Suppressed Histories Series

Max's prints, magnets, cards and the Suppressed Histories T-shirts will be available at this event.
