People of Power: A Philippine Worldview of Spirit Encounters



Author: John P. McAndrew

Situating the first person accounts of spirit encounters from Davao and Davao Oriental provinces within the context of a Philippine worldview of indigenous religion and healing, this book examines five central themes: acquiring personal power, remembering one's debt of gratitude,healing as efficacious power, competing with the power of others, and the localization of religious beliefs. It likewise explores the affinity of localized Philippine religion to the ecological worldview of the universe.
