In this teach-in, Matthew Fox and Isa Gucciardi will discuss the roots of shamanic practice in Christian and Buddhist thought through the lens of the visionary experiences that are essential to shamanic practice. They will explore the parallels of Christian mysticism and the development of the oracle tradition in Himalayan Buddhism through the commonality of their shamanic origins. Reverend Dr. Fox will explore how shamanism is reflected in the historical Jesus and Paul and in the encounter with the divine in Christian mystics such as Hildegaard von Bingen and Julian of Norwich. Dr. Gucciardi will demonstrate how oracle traditions have informed and inspired Buddhist thinkers such as Tsongkhapa and Asanga.
