COMENTARIO BIBLIOGRÁFICO


One of the central characteristics of the Kallawaya culture is the
richest tradition of ritual healings applied by the male and female
ritual Kallawaya healers. There are very different modes of
significance and meaning of the white (positive aim), black (negative
aim) and grey (purification aim) rituals. The healing rituals are
deeply embedded in the Andean religion of Pachamama (Mother Earth),
the holy mountains (Akhamani, Sillaka, Atichamán...), the ancestry,
the owners and residents of the holy mountains, the forefathers in the
graves. Complex ritual action, intense communication between healer
and patient, manifold multiple prayers of the healer are the central
expressions of these rich traditional healing rituals. Kallawaya
concepts of health and illness, well-being and hostility are
systematically compared with western concepts and research.
