'Loss of soul' is not due to repression
but is clearly a species of seizure,
and is therefore explained as sorcery.
These phenomena, originally belonging to the realm of magic,
have not by any means died out in so-called civilized people.

Carl Jung

The shaman is the person, male or female,
who in his late childhood or early youth
has an overwhelming psychological experience
that turns him totally inward.
It's a kind of schizophrenic crack-up.
The whole unconscious opens up,
and the shaman falls into it.

Joseph Campbell

A travel log of the underworld,

​where tragicomic characters inhabit roles we play,

​enabling the alien within.
