Exorcism!
Introduction Exorcism has been part of all cultures since man could form coherent thoughts. Demons, spirits,
fairies, and other entities have seemingly plagued the faithful in all manner of ways and from all
walks of life.
The image we have of the priest in their priestly gowns holding a crucifix and splashing holy
water is only one of the ways in which exorcism has played out. And forcing a spirit to make a
180 degree turn is not always the best and most wished for method of extraction. Several
cultures have a rich history of removing unwanted intruders from the host without almost killing
the subject. Shamanic methods have been employed where the shaman goes into the world of
the spirit to show them that this inhabitation is not in their or the hosts best interest and
convinces them to go elsewhere.
Exorcism is not just the domain of the Roman Catholic either. Religious exorcism can cause
serious harm and leave the victim worse off than they were before. What do you think would
happen if a Roman Catholic priest encountered a subject that was “possessed” by a spirit that
existed long before Christianity? Probably the spirit would laugh at the effort, in a best case
scenario, or it would inflict extreme suffering upon its host’s body and psyche.
In this class, we will examine exorcism from a dogmatic and non-dogmatic approach. What to
do if your subject is of a different religious background than you, or even none at all. And how to
protect oneself if you are thrust into the position of being an exorcist.

What is exorcism?
Exorcism is the removal by methods either religious or non-dogmatic of an unwanted entity
inhabiting the body of a subject either from a religious background or of some other belief
system. The methods are varied and some are helpful, and some are horribly dangerous.
The Roman Catholic ritual consists of praying to raise the hosts of God and Jesus in order to
give the priest power to wrench the spirit from the soul of the faithful. Through threats, holy
water, crucifixes, and prayers, the priest creates an environment unhealthy to the entity and,
hopefully, forces them out and back from whence they came.

What is an exorcist?
In my own thoughts, an exorcist is a person of particular training and experience that uses the
power of one’s own energy to bring the entity to an understanding that it is not in a place
