FieldDaoist Religious Studies

Research TopicThere is a healing ritual known as “concealing the soul" (藏魂), which serves as an individual rite addressing supplicants’ discomfort by keeping the supplicants from potential harm in their lives via mantic techniques (術數) and functions as a means of healing without prescribing any specific treatment procedures but by concealing the emblems of hun and po souls (hunpo 魂魄) in a porcelain cup. My research addresses how the rite gets transformed and becomes popular after constructed upon the understandings of the hun and po souls (hunpo 魂魄) and coinciding with the elements of cultural tools, including sharing the same concept of sacred space, cosmology, and fate in Chinese society, all of which indicate the needs toward well-being, even a bigger picture — completeness in Taiwan.
