In many shamanic societies, if you come to the shaman or healer, complaining that you are disappointed, disheartened, or are depressed, they would ask you one of the four questions:
When you stop dancing?
When you stopped singing?
When you are no longer stories enthrall and fascinate?
When the pleasant silence ceased to be comfortable for you?
Where we stopped to dance, sing, enchanted stories or enjoy the silence - this is where we experience the loss of the soul.
Dance, singing, storytelling and silence - a four universal healing balm.
