Seeds of Change invites you to a screening of the documentary "Shamans of the Blind Country." The almost four-hour (two-part) documentary shows Shamanism in the lives of the Magar in all its variety and range. This film was shot under difficult physical conditions between 1977 and 1979 on three successive expeditions to a remote Himalayan village in the vicinity of the Dhaulagiri Range in north-western Nepal. It follows the arduous process of initiation that each student of Shamanism has to go through before he or she can enter the guild of the chosen healers.
