Research Needed / Re: Animist Arts

They seem to use a lot of social justice rhetoric. Daniel Foor does the same thing now, continuing his plastic shaman "animism" business with a social justice twist. It seems that if you sprinkle in buzzwords like "decolonization", then you get a pass. When Foor was outed on here for his plastic shaman lineage, he distanced himself from his original teacher. I assume if Sohei comes on here, he will do the same. Probably talking about how he came out in a letter against Foor and all his exploitative fraud. At the end of the day though, this is the lineage here: plastic shaman wannabe to plastic shaman wannabe. You can dress up in social justice rhetoric all you want, but at the end of the day it's still selling "animism" ceremony online. Call it decolonial play or whatever is catchy for the more politically savvy kids these days, but it's all in the same breath of plastic shamanism.

I confronted Sohei personally on facebook, which probably wasn't the smartest idea on my part admittedly. They got very defensive, which is always a big red flag with these kind of people. Reminded me of the thread on here called "NAFPS takes pride in being called "Enemy""

When a spiritual exploiter insults us, attacks us, spreads rumors, issues empty threats of lawsuits, or goes to elaborate and ultimately useless efforts to go after us, we take it as a compliment.

We take it as a sign of success, a mark of how worried they are about the loss of their income, power, or standing because of their fraudulent or disprespectful actvity being exposed and criticized.

The more they squawk, the more they show themselves to be panicked or paranoid.

It should be noted that Sohei came out against Daniel Foor, yet has set up their own business that's clearly similar to Foor's Ancestral Medicine in it's focus on ancestor work and "animism" (a term of course originally coined as pejorative against indigenous people).

Research Needed / Animist Arts
« Last post by fairbanks on June 29, 2022, 04:03:30 pm »
This is a "non-dual animist" group run by Dare Sohei (originally trained by Daniel Foor who is listed as Fraud on here) and Larissa Kaul (trained by Jai Medina at The Balanzu Way School of Shamanic Arts, who also has a thread on NAFPS). They sell so-called "ritual-performances" called "Between Sun and Moon" online that are, "an energetic and spiritual tune up for ourselves and inevitably our ancestors, and doing our part as humans to collaborate with Spirit and Nature for the benefit of all beings."

I am the AIM member that was outing Zan Benham, she tried to use the media to justify her claims as NDN and even brought Floyd Hand, Chief RedClouds grandson from Pine Ridge to defend her, something Mr. Hand now claims didn't happen but if you check the Sarasota Herald Tribune archives you can still find the article about this.  Mr. Hand also taught Ms. Benham to build a sweatlodge and made her a water pourer.  I did try to meet with Mr. Hand but did not show up to the agreed to meeting.

My bolding. Zan Benham has her own thread, which I just updated:

The links are dead by now, but her domain is still there: https://woman-spirit.com/

She is still active there, and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/zanbenham

She is mentioned several times in this thread (and I quote the last mention):

American Indian Chief Performs Healing Ceremony for Upper West Siders

Earlier in 2007 there was already a thread about Harold "White Horse" Thompson:

This thread is all about Harold "White Horse" Thompson, who has his own thread here:

http://www.newagefraud.org/smf/index.php?topic=1225.0 [Harold "White Horse" Thompson]

I suggest the two threads be merged.
