Beast of Gévaudan The Beast of Gévaudan (French: La Bête du Gévaudan; IPA: [la bɛːt dy ʒevodɑ̃], Occitan: La Bèstia de Gavaudan) is the historical name associated with the man-eating wolf-like animals which terrorised the former province of Gévaudan (modern-day département of Lozère and part of Haute-Loire), in the Margeride Mountains in south-central France between 1764 and 1767.[2] The attacks, which covered an area stretching 90 by 80 kilometres (56 by 50 mi), were said to have been committed by beasts that had formidable teeth and immense tails according to contemporary eye-witnesses. Witnesses also saw the beast was wounded at several occasions without dying. Those injuries include shots at point blank range. Victims were often killed by having their throats torn out. The French government used a considerable amount of manpower and money to hunt the animals; including the resources of several nobles, the army, civilians, and a number of royal huntsmen.[2] Description[edit] History[edit] Theories[edit]

18 | mayo | 2008 | La nodriza de las hadas y el rey carmesí Todo conocimiento psicológico es imaginario James Hillman Dicen que Apolo fue el inventor de la medicina, aunque tambien dicen que nunca la ejerció más allá de utilizar la cítara y el augurio como medios terapéuticos, fue su hijo Asclepio el que comenzó a usar las plantas como remedios medicinales y quizá por llevarle la contraria a su padre inventó aquello del “ars muda“, una idea que ha llegado a nuestros dias y que viene a decir que el médico tiene que limitarse a prescribir hierbas y a usar sus manos renunciando a todo aquello que pueda resultar estridente donde magia y medicina se confunden por el público mal educado en estas lides. Asi, en la tradición médica puede hablarse de dos clases de médicos, aquellos que ejercian la “ars muda” de aquellos que usaban los cánticos, sonidos, danzas con emisión de sonidos: la catarsis que podia conseguirse a través de varios métodos, incluyendo la ayuda de algunas drogas. Hasta Freud. No fué Freud sino su paciente Anna O. ¿Las razones?

LA EXPERIENCIA RELIGIOSA: EL DIOS DEL TRUENO Cielo y Tierra, Sol, Amanecer, Noche: estos dan forma a al marco externo del mundo en el que vivimos. Pero tenemos poderes elementales más enérgicos e impredecibles que componen nuestro medioambiente, deidades de la lluvia y el trueno, viento y fuego, e inundación. EL DIOS DEL TRUENONo hay manifestación natural más aterradora que el trueno. Esos relámpagos de luz en el cielo oscuro; esos estruendos amenazadores; árboles destrozados, etc. Todo ello se achaca a la furia de un ser sobrenatural. En la mayoría de los antiguos panteones de los pueblos Indo-Europeos se puede identificar un dios con estas características. Para los clasicistas es natural pensar que la tormenta que la función de la tormenta pertenece al gran dios del cielo, Zeus, en el caso de Grecia y Júpiter en el caso de Roma. Los dioses-de-la-tormenta tienen diversos nombres. El Carro de Perkunas, se dice a veces, es tirado por un chivo (ozys) o chivos. Perkunas/Perkons tiene una asociación especial con el roble.

Vampire Vampires are mythical beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures In folkloric tales, undead vampires often visited loved ones and caused mischief or deaths in the neighbourhoods they inhabited when they were alive. They wore shrouds and were often described as bloated and of ruddy or dark countenance, markedly different from today's gaunt, pale vampire which dates from the early 1800s. Although vampiric entities have been recorded in most cultures, the term vampire was not popularised until the early 18th century, after an influx of vampire superstition into Western Europe from areas where vampire legends were frequent, such as the Balkans and Eastern Europe,[1] although local variants were also known by different names, such as vrykolakas in Greece and strigoi in Romania. Etymology Folk beliefs Description and common attributes Creating vampires The causes of vampiric generation were many and varied in original folklore.

Nyami Nyami The Nyami Nyami, otherwise known as the Zambezi River God or Zambezi Snake spirit, is one of the most important gods of the Tonga people. Nyami Nyami is believed to protect the Tonga people and give them sustenance in difficult times. The River God is usually portrayed as female. Variously described as having the body of a snake and the head of a fish, a whirlpool or a river dragon, the Nyami Nyami is seen as the god of Zambezi Valley and the river before the creation of the Kariba Dam. The Nyami Nyami is regularly depicted as a snake-like being or dragon-like creature with a snake's torso and the head of a fish.[1] It can be found as pendants on jewelry, usually carved out of wood, stone or bone, occasionally ivory, silver or gold both as a fashion accessory and as a good luck charm similar to the wearing of a St Christopher medallion. It is the traditional role of tribal elders and spirit mediums to intercede on behalf the inhabitants of the river valley when Nyami Nyami is angered.

Psychopomp In Jungian psychology, the psychopomp is a mediator between the unconscious and conscious realms. It is symbolically personified in dreams as a wise man or woman, or sometimes as a helpful animal. In many cultures, the shaman also fulfills the role of the psychopomp. This may include not only accompanying the soul of the dead, but also vice versa: to help at birth, to introduce the newborn child's soul to the world (p. 36 of).[2] This also accounts for the contemporary title of "midwife to the dying", or "End of Life Doula" which is another form of psychopomp work.
