Shamans in the Cathedral is a collection of photographs of a non-ordinary dance company. The photos were taken between 1976 and 2009. Shamans in the Cathedral follows and completes the author's earlier work, In the Shadow of the Dancing Shamans (Thee London Press, 2007), a work that grew out of a PhD thesis (University of Durham -Theology). The dance work in question is based on the notion that some dance, by its nature, generates various forms of ecstatic experience that can be numinous. Such experience, as generated in the dancer, becomes visible or its own expression and so the experience of witnesses. Dancers then become comparable to shamans; through direct profound experience, they provide witnesses with such experience also. In mythic language; they bring heaven to earth.
