Woman Shaman

Max Dashu shows dreamers, drummers, diviners and healers from around
the world. A comprehensive global view of women who invoke Spirit:
ecstatic dancers, medicine women, sky-walkers and women who ride on
tigers and dragons.

The "classic" academic literature on shamanism obscures female
involvement in these transformative arts, but don't be fooled. It
goes deep, and it is vast, as these rare images show...

7:30 PM, at Change Makers for Women, 6536 Telegraph Ave, Oakland
94609. $10-15. Wheelchair access. All are welcome.
