Spirits in Moscow were fed artysh

Spirits in Moscow were fed artyshThe entire planet Earth was following the time of epochs according to the Mayan calendar. Some quietly observed the events, others "prepared" for the expected cataclysms, yet others prepared for the rare date like for a holiday. But in the center of Moscow, in one cozy backyard…they lit a ritual shamanic bonfire.

Here, near Paveletskiy train station, is where the shamaness Vera Sazhina lives, who comes to Tuva for several warm months every year, to Shagonar, where the "headquarters" of her association is located.

Moscow Times: Magic Energy at the Centre of Asia

Moscow Times: Magic Energy at the Centre of AsiaIts not surprising that a town located at the exact geographic center of Asia has special psychic energies. Kyzyl, the capital of the Tuva republic, is 3,700 kilometers to the east of Moscow. But as far as its style of business is concerned, it might as well be on another planet.

"If a person decides to move to Kyzyl to start a business," said Otkun Dostay, the head of the Tuvan branch of UNESCO, "he will gain mental and spiritual equilibrium. Finding himself in the middle of the taiga, a person becomes placated by the energy and the breath of nature. It is like recharging a battery."

The sound equipment was designed to prevent a repeat of his first appearance in 1993, when Ondar, singing without amplification, couldn't be heard over the din of the crowd.
