The Therapeutic Use of Shamanic Practice for Dementia
Dementia is a syndrome, typically of a chronic or progressive nature. It is a general term for the impaired ability to remember, think, or make decisions that interferes with effectively managing everyday activities. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are currently more than 55 million people who live with dementia worldwide, and there are nearly 10 million new cases every year. It is expected to get worse unless countries better address the risk factors.
Steven is investigating how shamanic healing practices might be used to support stopping or reversing cognitive impairment in dementia. This presentation will explore dementia, report on current research, and address through a transpersonal lens how ancient shamanic practices might support the healing of modern dementia.
