Sue Jennnings: The Healing Practices of the Senoi Temiar and other videos from the Ritual Theatre Book Launch

Here at last are the videos from the Ritual Theatre Celebration that took place in London on June 29th 2012.

Of special interest is Sue Jennings’ talk on the Healing Practice of the Senoi Temiar, based on her experiences of living with the Temiar when she was doing her anthropological research. Her talk mesmerised her audience and of great interest for those interested in ritual, anthropology, tribal medicine, dramatherapy or shamanism. Sue also describes the healing of her youngest son by the Temiar shaman and the verification by a western doctor that he had been very sick indeed and was now fully recovered.

The videos are in chronological order.
