The cycle breaker, the black sheep, the “mentally ill” and the unstable, the creative, the artist, and the mystic. The throw-aways and the odd balls in society have this calling. These days only some of us make it. The chronically ill, the homeless, the imprisoned, those who use lots of substances to cope etc are all called to this path. The shaman of our time need societies support. The fringe is where wisdom is formed.
