My doctorate thesis is about shamanic practices, in Lisbon and In Florence, as a form of anthropotechnic oriented to find a way to answer the contemporary call to construct and continually upgrade self-identity creating a cosmopolitan patchwork in which different traditions cohabit in a post-ascetic modality oriented to a secular realization through self-improvement and self-help technologies.
