Anneliese Michel - Wikipedia Anneliese Michel [ˈanəˌliːzə ˈmɪçl̩] (21 September 1952 – 1 July 1976) was a German woman who underwent Catholic exorcism rites during the year before her death. Later investigation determined that she was malnourished and dehydrated; her parents and the priests responsible were charged with negligent homicide. She was epileptic and had a history of psychiatric treatment, which was overall not effective. Her condition worsened with her displaying various other symptoms which she took medication for as well. Michel and her family became convinced she was possessed by demons. The case attracted media and public attention because of the priests' unusual decision to employ a 400-year-old ritual of exorcism.

Palo (religion) - Wikipedia The word "palo" ("stick" in Spanish) was applied to the religion in Cuba due to the use of wooden sticks in the preparation of altars, which were also called "la Nganga", "el caldero", "nkisi" or "la prenda". Priests of Palo are known as "Paleros", "Tatas (men)", "Yayas (women)" or "Nganguleros". Initiates are known as "ngueyos" or "pino nuevo". Palo has its roots in the Congo Basin of Central Africa, from where large numbers of Kongo slaves were brought to Cuba where the religion was organized. Five Remedies for Stormy Emotions Helpful Tips for Turbulent Times Working with emotions from the Mahayana Buddhist perspective is a lot like composting. The basic idea is that nothing in our emotional world is to be discarded. The practice is to refrain from rejecting or indulging any aspect of our experience and learn to face it directly. By welcoming our challenging emotions and channelling the energy in useful ways, we see how emotions are like messengers, telling us something about our relationship to ourselves and others. Emotional maturity is not about creating more interesting stories about your feelings, but rather is about mastering the ability to be with the continuous flow of emotions as they rise and fall.
Order of Nine Angles - Wikipedia One of the main symbols of the ONA The Order of Nine Angles (ONA; O9A) is a Satanic and Left-Hand Path occult group based in the United Kingdom, but with affiliated groups in various other parts of the world. Claiming to have been established in the 1960s, it arose to public recognition in the early 1980s, attracting attention for its espousal of Neo-Nazi ideologies and activism. Describing its approach as "Traditional Satanism", it has been academically identified as also exhibiting Hermetic and Neo-Pagan elements in its beliefs. According to the Order's own account, it was established in the Welsh Marches of Western England during the late 1960s by a woman who had previously been involved in a secretive pre-Christian tradition surviving in the region.
The life and numbers of Fibonacci Fibonacci is one of the most famous names in mathematics. This would come as a surprise to Leonardo Pisano, the mathematician we now know by that name. And he might have been equally surprised that he has been immortalised in the famous sequence – 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, ... – rather than for what is considered his far greater mathematical achievement – helping to popularise our modern number system in the Latin-speaking world. An Introduction to Focusing An Introduction to Focusing Susan Jordan A good many people have heard of Focusing without knowing exactly what it is.
Clairvius Narcisse - Wikipedia Accounts in popular media Overview Account After various anthropologic investigations of "zombie" stories in various cultures—including Narcisse and a handful of others—reports appeared that Narcisse received a dose of a chemical mixture containing tetrodotoxin (a pufferfish toxin) and bufotoxin (a toad toxin) to induce a coma that mimicked the appearance of death. He was then allowed to return to his home where he collapsed, "died", and was buried. According to Davis, Narcisse came home to his village after 18 years of being assumed dead. He was able to convince a few villagers and his sister that he was indeed who he said he was.

Potthapada Sutta: About Potthapada I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying near Savatthi in Jeta's Grove, Anathapindika's monastery. Now on that occasion Potthapada the wanderer, together with a large following of about 300 wanderers, had taken up residence in the debating hall near the Tinduka tree in the single-pavilion park of Queen Mallika. Then the Blessed One, early in the morning, taking his robes & bowl, entered Savatthi for alms. Then the thought occurred to him, "While it's still too early to go into Savatthi for alms, why don't I go to the debating hall near the Tinduka tree in the single-pavilion park of Queen Mallika to see Potthapada the wanderer?"
Brujería - Wikipedia Brujería is the Spanish-language word for "witchcraft". Brujería also refers to Practice-healers in the Americas (especially African Americans and the United States). Both men and women can practice; brujo(s) and bruja(s), respectively. Etymology There is no sound etymology for this word, which appears only in Portuguese, Spanish, Catalan, and Galician (other romance languages use words derived from Latin strix, -igis, originally an owl). The word may be inherited from a Celtiberian substrate or it may derive from the Latin plusscius, -a, um (> plus + scius), a hapax attested in the Cena Trimalchionis, a central part in Petronius' Satyricon. Pluscia could have arisen from rhotacization of the /l/ and voicing of the /p/, pluscia> pruscia> bruscia> bruxa (Portuguese)> bruja (Spanish).
