I was much taken by one of the wall descriptions in the otherwise pretty barren ‘Passage to Asia’ exhibition in Brussels, when it explained a shaman’s role as trying to find where a life has gone out of balance. A balance, inevitably, of the spiritual and the physical/somatic. An aligning with the deep patterns in creation. This is perhaps most strongly expressed in Celtic Christianity. It may be that a lot more of this balance than we generally credit lies in the balance between the individual and the larger group, and that the individualism of modern culture is its single biggest weakness.
