les esprits frappeurs

3 March 2009

Author : maxime-buechi

Forget the infamous “esprit frappeurs” (“hitting spirits”), here are the shakers. The least thing you can say is that these people are (were) not consistent. They started as a few thousands, but du to their very strict celibacy policy, they are only 4 adepts left. (Or at the time the article I read about them was written).
And what does one do to kill time with when sex is not an option?… hmm… You can imagine all kind of stunning rituals, read the Bible, and make amazing drawings about the Next Life.

I want to be a shaker too.

But since I can’t I decided I would just buy this amazing book and dream rave.
