Ingjerd Tjelle
Powerful forces

In this book, you meet those who call themselves helpers, healers and shamans. You read the stories of those who were helped - the kind of help that cannot be explained by traditional medicine. These stories are about helpers like: Hammari, Unsgaard, Løvlund, Mirakel-Mikkel and many others. The book also uses historical images and sources that up until now were very obscure and scarcely known.
“Sterke krefter” (Powerful forces) is a documentary about the strong "shaman" tradition in the north. A tradition that still lives on today. Here you are faced with inexplicable stories, not only from the old, but the new generation of healers as well.
