Dear Dominik and List-Serve Members,

A very good human resource with lots of experience in the study of Korean
Shamanism, and resident in Korea, is Rev. Daniel Kister, S.J., who I
believe can be contacted at Sogang University in Seoul.

If you wish more detailed contact information please contact by individual
e-mail and I'll give you what information I have.
