I just wanted to let you all know Anita Cohen-Williams sent me the needed
info I requested, concerning an article in the Encyclopedia of Religion. I
was very relieved and thankful this time for the list! Without the proper
citation I could not have used the references, which were important to my
argument that Korean shamans should be regarded as shamans despite that
they do not leave their bodies, but rather have the spirits deliver
(theres that anthro humor again!) Anna Leena Siikala's article emphasizes
the communication and community functions of the shaman's ecstatic state
over the location of the transaction, (or more succintly) emphasizes the
social and cultural aspects over the psychological processes.

Thanks Anita!
