In Merced, California, Hmong shaman Va Meng Lee performs a home-based curing ceremony for a man who fell ill during a funeral. To keep his soul from being drawn into the underworld with the deceased, the soul of a sacrificed pig is offered in exchange. Recognizing the healing power of belief, Dignity Health’s hospital in Merced allows shamans to work with patients in its medical facility.
