Responces to disaster @ 01:54 pm


In response to disasters do you offer any prayers or do any spiritual work?

Ex: Such as with the current Japanese Earthquake, Tsunami, & Nuclear Crisis: Shamanic Healing for Japan being conducted by the FSS or Recitation of the Heart Sutra being conducted by Tibetan Buddhists.

Ew, no. In fact I think it's sort of offensive. I can't ask everyone who would be involved if they would like the idea and I don't know any Shinto deities, or how best to make offering to them, and anyway, I don't see why the kami of Japan would make more effort to help the people of Japan with me praying. I'm sure there are plenty of people in Japan praying.

Also I'm not sure those FSS "shamans" know what "shaman" means. Damn anthropologists ignorantly applying the word to all and sundry. You'd think an anthropologist would have more respect for cultural diversity.
