January 20, 2019 - Sunday 12:30-2pm - A Shamanic Approach to Psychic Attacks and Protective Measures - with Jan Van Ysslestyne

Join Jan Van Ysslestyne, author of Spirits From The Edge of the World, as she offers a shamanic approach to psychic attacks and protective measures.

Energy Medicine talks about the human aura being open to people whose thoughts may be intrusive and negative. Western psychology calls this condition depressive or a deeper pathology, but from a shamanic viewpoint, there are many more possibilities that might be responsible for personal physical and emotional disturbances. Rather than using a Western esoteric model to identify and correct these conditions, we will examine an animistic approach to identifying, classifying, and preventive measures used by indigenous people who view the world as imbued by spirits. This approach provides a more complex set of variables when coming to a more definite conclusion and course of action to restore a healthy equilibrium in our daily lives. J. Van Ysslestyne, M.A. is a fluent speaker of the Manchu-Tungus language spoken by the Ulchi culture. She lectures on Classical shamanism through the University of Washington, Burke Museum, Antioch, and Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. Her publications have appeared in both Shaman’s Drum and Sacred Hoop magazines. She is a contributing author to the book First Fish, First People, Salmon Tales of the North Pacific Rim, University of Washington Press. She continues her research into the pre-technical medical practices of indigenous cultures in the territories of southeastern Siberia.
