Gnosis—Shamanism and Magic, a Practitioner’s Exploration

    • , 13:45–15:15 (UTC+8)-
  • Online


Li-Chun Lin (Marina) will discuss gnosis as an alternative way of knowing, the differences and correlations between shamanism and magic, her personal stories with each, and how these practices influence her understanding of space and time continuum.

As a former travel journalist, Lin embarked on a shamanic journey during a spontaneous vision quest in a desert in the Middle East. She has spent over ten years traveling around the world to study from various shamanic cultures, provide shamanic healing, teach shamanism courses, as well as lead rituals. Lin began learning Ayahuasca in 2012, and is one of the few practitioners in Asia to have been fully trained in the authentic Ayahuasca lineage. She has studied with Mestizo shamans Christina Mendoza and Herbert Quinteros from Peru, and Shipibo Canibo shamans Antonio Vasquez and Metsa Oka, among others. Under the guidance of Israeli and British occultists, Li-Chun has received initiation into magical organizations.
