de SÉBASTIEN BAUD & CORINE SOMBRUN

Résumé :

Depuis la nuit des temps, les chamanes nous fascinent. Qui sont-ils ? Quel est leur rôle ? Quels sont leurs outils ? Comment devient-on chamane ? Richement illustré, ce livre dépeint l'évolution de la figure du chamane dans l'imaginaire occidental. Des premiers récits de la rencontre aux histoires de chamanes d'aujourd'hui, l'ethnologue SEBASTIEN BAUD explore les liens entre visible et invisible, humain et animal, culture et nature tels que les sociétés à chamanes les conçoivent. 2 3

CORINE SOMBRUN, à son tour, nous présente la quête passionnante des liens entre transe et neurosciences. Un véritable voyage dans le temps à la découverte du chamanisme d'hier et d'aujourd'hui.

masqueMasks for the Dance Phagli Festival - Himachal Pradesh
Collection Tom van Groeningen

by Tom van Groeningen with an interview by dr. Stephan Steinmetz PhD

The more than a hundred tribal masks in this publication are a selection of the extensive collection of the Dutchman Tom van Groeningen (1948) of the extraordinary masks from the Kullu Valley in the State of Himachal Pradesh in North-West India. Van Groeningen is not an average collector of tribal art. He chooses on the basis of beauty and provenance and focuses on the stories and people behind the masks. He puts the objects into the context of the religious and cultural settings of the region in India. ‘All my masks have danced,’ he says with a twinkling in his eye. What drives Van Groeningen? How did his collection grow? What makes his masks so appealing to the imagination? These are the questions that are answered in this rich publication.

Dealing with Disasters2020Dealing with Disasters

Diana Riboli et Stefano Beggiora du comité d'honneur de l'association, avec le professeur David Torri sortent un nouveau livre intitulé : Dealing with Disasters - Perspectives from Eco-Cosmologies.

"Providing a fresh look at some of the pressing issues of our world today, this collection focuses on experiential and ritualized coping practices in response to a multitude of environmental challenges—cyclones, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, earthquakes, warfare and displacements of peoples and environmental resource exploitation. Eco-cosmological practices conducted by skilled healing practitioners utilize knowledge embedded in the cosmological grounding of place and experiences of place and the landscapes in which such experience is encapsulated. A range of geographic case studies are presented in this volume, exploring Asia, Europe, the Pacific, and South America. With special reference throughout to ritual as a mode of seeking the stabilization, renewal, and continuity of life processes, this volume will be of particular interest to readers working in shamanic and healing practices, environmental concerns surrounding sustainability and conservation, ethnomedical systems, and religious and ritual studies."

Éditions VAJRA PUBLICATIONS is releasing a new book entitled:

Exorcising Ancestors Conquering Heaven: Himalayan Rituals in Context

By Brigitte Steinmann, Mukta Singh Tamang, Thuden Gyalchen Lama

Description:

This volume is a first attempt at gathering together, translating, describing and analysing an immemorial textual and oral Nepalese Buddhist heritage, doomed to disappear: a most antique form of veneration of major figures of the Buddhist religion of the Tamangs, based on Tibetan corpus. The analysis is centered around the recreation and final dissolution of both ferocious and pacific images of their gods and ancestors. Multiple dramas and rehearsals featuring the complex rules of the society and all the obstacles encountered by people in their day to day lives, are played theatrically under the guidance of the Head rnyingmapa Lama and/ or the Bard. Books, dramas, recitations, speak of fiercely combatting hordes of demons, enemies of the group, of eliminating a scapegoat and of using for this all the resources of a very high-mountain environment, though far away in fact from where the ceremony in question is performed. People claim loud and clear to have descended from kings who came from the top of an original mountain situated in the centre of the world and touching the sky.

Similarly, Funeral rites founded on a conceptualisation of the phases of death, and Teachings for the laity recited by the local bard, suggest that today’s Tamangs’ ancestors may well have been contemporaneous with ancient Mongolian societies, all of them adepts of the old Bon religion and prior to periods when the great literature of the northern Treasure-texts gterma disseminated in Nepal from the seventeenth century onwards, was introduced.

This long-term work is the result of a collective effort bringing together the skills of researchers, ethnologists and historians, passionate about the world of these Buddhist populations of Nepal.
