Synopsis of the Roundtable: There is a strong folk belief in the
Kyrgyz traditional society that certain people are chosen for a
spiritual mission like healing, reciting epics, guarding sacred sites,
mediating between this world and other worlds; and that their health
is directly affected by their acceptance or rejection of this
spiritual mission. Learning transpersonal psychology could provide
scientific paradigms to help explain many cases which Aigine RC has
been observing in Talas and Issyk-Kul.

Aigine Cultural Research Center (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan) was founded in
2004 and takes as its mission: study and preservation of the natural
and cultural heritage and diversity of Kyrgyzstan; investigation of
unknown aspects of cultural and natural phenomena, seeking points of
rapprochement and interconnection among esoteric knowledge and
science, nature and culture, tradition and innovation, West and East,
and other experiences often felt to be in opposition.
