Spirit helpers In fact, the first step in the healing ritual, Magannon said, is for the mandadawak to call on spirit helpers in the mythical world, nature or ancestral realm. Having done this, it is important for the mandadawak to go into a trance as this would mean she has gone with the spirit helpers to look for the entity that caused the illness. This is the essence of shamanism, Magannon said in a lecture at the UP Baguios Cordillera Studies Center on July 10. As a shaman, the mandadawaks task is to negotiate with the spirit that caused the illness and plead on behalf of the patient that he or she be restored to good health. While in a trance, the spirit will speak through the mandadawak who is now a medium, and will unravel the cause of the illness, as well as the terms to be met before the patient is cured of his or her affliction. From birth to death Magannon, himself a Kalinga who did his research on the mandadawak from his village of Lubo in Tanudan town, said it was here where the ritual reaches the sacrificial stage in which animals would be butchered as offering to the spirits: Either a chicken, pig or a carabao depending on the spirit that caused the illness. As a practitioner of ethno-medicine, the mandadawak determines the cause of illnesses based on the healers reference to the world. Magannon said the mandadawak believes that a state of well-being is dictated by the life cycle of human beingsfrom birth to death.
