On February the 6th, 2018, Agathe Simon invited members of The Group to write a text expressing the fears they were living through that specific day. She received texts from 18 countries.On the evening of February 9th, 2018, she created a ritual in the Vincennes woods dedicated to the purification of those fears. This project is part of the Shamanic Cycle.

The Shamanic Cycle is a multimedia cycle which has been unfolding since 2015. It includes videos, sound pieces and performances. It is based on the same stake, the exploration of the unknown, and the same protocol, the recourse to shamanic journeys. Agathe Simon created this cycle in the light of encounters with shamans from different traditions: Mongolian, Pygmy, Korean, Quechua and Lakota.
