RE: [SCA-JML] Re: Yuurei, exorcism & rites of the dead
- I'm sorry to hear it, and at the same time, wish there were more details he
was willing to share. I mentioned the exorcism rites I am familiar with -
but Shinto is not really among them. I have a book called "Occult Japan"
which discusses some Shinto rituals, but it is woefully biased being written
around the turn of the 19th century. Makes you think to consider that these
things still go on today. It's not just the fundamentalist Christians who do
faith-healing, exorcisms and similar things.

Actually...I had a friend who was hauled off to a Shinto temple because his
grandparents thought he was possessed. He only told me a couple things
about it but he said that the priest tied him to a chair, threw water in his
face, and hit him with a bamboo stick. I'm sure there was more to it but he
didn't want to elaborate.
