Also In modern psychology, the term katabasis is sometimes used
to describe the depression some young men experience.
Author Robert Bly proposes in his book Iron John: A Book About Men several reasons for the "catabasis phenomenon",
amongst them the lack of Western initiation rites and the lack of strong father figures and role models.

Shamanism in Siberia

From the Magic and Ritual in the Ancient World Religions
Part Four:
The shaman has a direct link with the supernatural world, but this link is not forged without difficulty or pain; the shamanic vocation often brings great suffering into the lives of those who pursue it. It is characteristic of the Arctic shaman (although not unknown in other traditions) that the initiation into the otherworld is experienced as a violent upheaval that involves the destruction of the whole person by the spirits, followed by a kind of resurrection as a new being who is at home both in the mundane and the spiritual world. The initiant seems to endure being eaten alive or otherwise consumed—often the victim sees the process as though it were happening to someone else—until nothing is left but a skeleton. Consciousness is frequently lost at this point (understandably), but the initiant may watch his or her own skeleton being reforged and reclothed with flesh. In any case, the new shaman will discover that the terrifying personal disintegration has been followed by a reintegration that brings with it powers over the spiritual world.

Classic Shamanism And Core Shamanism: Basic Differences from NorthernShamanism.org  The term "core shamanism" was popularized by Michael Harner in his book "The Way Of The Shaman". It supposedly implies that it contains the "core" shamanic techniques, stripped of their cultural context and teachable to individuals not raised in that culture. On the other hand, the experience of people who work with core shamanism is not identical to that of shamans and their counterparts who come to their work the old-fashioned way, anthropological accounts of which have been gathered for over two hundred years. There are stunning similarities between the experiences of many of these shamans, regardless of their home culture or place in the world. These similarities, and the similarities of the altered-state and magical techniques used by tribal shamans, have popularized the concept of the global "shamanic" spiritual/magical system.

I've chosen to use the term "classic shamanism" to describe the cross-cultural set of experiences described by tribal shamans across the world. It shares with "core shamanism" many of the same tools and techniques of consciousness - journeying, visualization, drumming, ritual, working with animal and plant totems, natural spirits, or ancient gods; natural hallucinogens, cultural symbol systems, and so forth. It isn't the tools that differentiate the two, as core shamanism borrowed those tools from classic shamanism. Instead, it's the central spiritual experience that is strongly different, as can be seen from this chart."...

Shamanic Drumming
"Here is a picture of a Teleut Shaman and her drum; this was taken in the 1930s in the Teleut region of Altai, Russia. Her drum is oval, warped, amazing, and far from perfectly shaped.

The surface of her shaman drum is divided into two worlds, the Upper World and the Lower World. A wavy line (i.e., the Sacred Path) separates the worlds and is also a border around the Upper World. In the Upper World are the Sun and planets or stars. There are also horses, riders, birds, and trees. In the Lower World are a man, a fish, and a turtle. These figures, taken together, tell the shaman's story." Image and text from Bear Drum.

Nga (god)

For the Karok people
there are two classes of shamans—the root doctors and the barking doctors… It is the province of the barking-doctor to diagnose the case, which she (most doctors are women) does by squatting down… before the patient, and barking at him… for hours together. After her comes the root-doctor, and with numerous potions, poultices, etc., seeks to medicate the part where the other has discovered the ailment resides."

The Sign of Kanaima, the Space of Guayana and the Demonology of Development (Login Required) ~ "Kanaimà, a term which refers both to a practice and the practitioners, isa form of mystical assault that ritually requires the extensive physical mai-ming of its victims in order that they may be produced as a divine food. This carnal violence, primarily a mutilation of mouth and anus, renders the victim  near dead but the process of slow death that occurs allows the formation ofthe magic substance maba within the body of the victim. The putrefaction of the cadaver in its grave then completes the cooking of the maba which thekanaimà shamans suck from the belly of the victim. This substance cools the heat of the killers, augments the senses and physical abilities of the kanaimàs, and facilitates the location, tracking, and eventual assault of future victims." (Whitehead, 2002a). MORE
