Cheonji, “heaven and earth”; gut, “shamanistic ritual.”

This shamanistic ritual, the gut of heaven and earth, conducted by Sangjenim and Subunim, was intended to resolve the Early Heaven’s bitterness and grief among humans and spirits.

A gut is a shamanistic ritual, dating back to the ancient times of Singyo (“Spirit Teaching”). A gut is performed on select occasions, at festivals, or during key seasonal passages to solicit the aid of the spirits in receiving healing, summoning blessings, assuaging troubled souls, bringing peace to a household, exorcising demons, or gaining other similar benevolent spiritual interventions.
