The Deacon's Bench

“In many ways, we are told to be separated…you are religious or you are practical. But why can’t we be one person? The seen and the unseen — we manifest both. Most indigenous shamans don’t give up their day job. They understand they need to be grounded in the material world. It’s not about working with spirits 24 hours a day. These people keep one foot in one world and one in the other.”

— Advertising executive Itzhak Beery,
who works on the weekends conducting healing ceremonies in Greenwich Village.
