Words of the Shaman

Conversations with Francesco Tsunki de Giorgio

Coming Soon


The S
haman Francesco Tsunki de Giorgio answers the questions of one of his students – Mayu Tuntíak – by describing the hidden nature of reality, proposing images rich in meaning, evocative expressions, and myths. Spirits, Power, the Great Dream, and the Other Reality - these are not empirical concepts that can be explained succinctly as we are used to, but the evocative language used by the shaman allows us to be freed from these shackles and become receptive to the deepest meaning of existence.
