Max Dashu: Women, Shamanism, & The Transition To Modernity

Max Dashu and I discuss what has been lost in the transition to modernity. From the denial of enriching forms of connection and ritual in our modern culture, to the suppression of the sacred and fully-embodied roles of women (and men) that had existed in many pre-modern egalitarian societies -- the path to the present moment has generated addiction, trauma, and pain in the human populations that stand in the wake of these long historical trends.
