I thought Confucianism was widespread there, because they celebrate his birthday as Teachers’ Day, and they have the ying yang on their national flag. But the beliefs in nature spirits of shamanism runs much deeper in Korean society, than the philosophies of Confucius and Buddha. I went to a ceremony where they burned the moon’s house, and celebrated with a glass of “goryangju.” That way I got to understand what makes Korea so unique from both China and Japan, and both countries have occupied the Korean Peninsula.

I’ve only heard about shamans in Korea but never saw any. This is the first article I’ve read about any foreigner having a shaman experience. Good job!

I love the pictures. BTW… you can embed the Flickr Slideshow in the page just like the youtube video. When you go to view the video there is a “Share” link at the top. You can get the embed code there. Works great.

Please keep sharing!

Thanks,
Bill
