There is no doubt that many countries suffering water shortage are also undergoing political, religious and border disputes. Although water shortage (dryness) is not the main cause of their disputes, I regard ‘dryness and lack of rain’ as symbolic catalysts to trigger the collapse of ecosystems – and even the split of political and religious ideology in those regions – just as dry soil cracks. I thus perform a shamanist ceremony to pray for rain, in order to moisten the dry land and, symbolically, help the settlement of the disputes in these countries. I believe that my shamanist ceremony and tools will work to provoke rain and wet the dry land. As a shaman, self belief is one of the most powerful tools to successfully realize the purpose of the ceremony, and, at the same time, a key element within my work.
