The shaman knows the drama of the human soul, its instability, its precariousness ... the forces that threaten it and the regions to which it can be carried away. If shamanic cure involves ecstasy, it is because illness is regarded as *a corruption or alienation of the soul.* ~Mircea Eliade
The Yoni mudra can be described as a gesture that allows a person to get detached from the chaos of the outer existing world. Yoni means uterus or womb and this gesture is named the Yoni Mudra, because the person who practices it regularly has no external contact with the world, pretty much like a baby in the uterus.
