Ivan Szendro

2015 Artist-in-Residence, Shaman Advisor

Ivan Szendro is a healer shaman who uses the power of myths and legends. For over 40 years, he has contributed to the modern understanding of shamanism through his methodology of mythological shamanism. He learned his own myth from the residents of Nagygéc, a 1,000-year-old village on the border of eastern Hungary. His career is based on his insight that the myth that lives within each of us, a personal myth, can be used for healing. He calls this The Legend of You.
