A modern-day shaman will shake no rattles, and bang no drums. He won’t walk on hot coals to display his conquest over fire. He won’t walk on water or levitate on empty air. He won’t mesmerize people, put them to sleep, or wake them from death. He won’t speak in tongues, or channel spirits from other realms, nor go into a trance. He won’t take drugs, eat psychedelic plants or make things appear out of thin air. Not that he can’t do all these things. He can, but they have all been done before. He won’t repeat these miracles and wonders. No no, nothing of the sort. The modern-day shaman will create newly, in the manner and style of the time, and her gift will be truly miraculous: S/he will make people laugh.
