Instruments of the modern shaman

During ceremonies the modern shaman is dressed in old sleeping gowns, which allow any kind of dream travels. To enhance the quality of these travels, the shaman heavily ties the rubber band around different parts of the body, to control the blood flow. The ball is used as well.

The study of the Hungarian language is one of the most important, nowadays shaman´s methods, to connect to her innermost magical qualities and powers.

Food, as in any ritual, is used for either nourishing the body or, as in the case of our modern shaman, becoming an ascetic thinker. Willing reduction of food levers imagination.
