The risk he took required him to break with the past and embrace an uncertain future, and undergo a two-year spiritual and physical ordeal - initiation into the mysteries of psychic possession and traditional healing. His is a story never heard before, told by the first white person to complete these demanding and secret rituals. Hall's grasp of reality was shaken to the core as he was forced to surrender himself to souls from the spirit world who now use him as their liaison with the living. Hall also learned how to read meanings and messages in his set of divination bones, and began his education in the collection and preparation of plants and roots used as traditional medicines - knowledge that takes a lifetime to master
