International Symposium: Women as Visionaries, Healers and Poisoners

Women as Visionaries, Healers and Poisoners

Autnomous Female Religious Specialists in Tibet, the Himalayas and Inner Asia

May 3-5, 2013

Central Asian Seminar, Institute for Asian and African Stdies, Humboldt University Berlin

This workshop will focus on autonomous female religious specialists as social beings within and/or outside of family, household, kinship group and community environments, as well as their relationships with dominant institutions such as states and organized religions. We will do so by examining commonalities and differences, experiences of embodiment of the sacred (or demonic) and denial, transformative life phases, renunciation, social tensions, struggle and pressures.
