about

"A year and a day following the death of a person, the family undertakes to reclaim his soul from the waters of the abyss below the earth and to lodge it in a govi where it may henceforth be invoked and consulted in the event of illness or other difficulties and so may participate in all the decisions that normally unite the members of the family in counsel. Thus the aid of his knowledge, the disciplines of his moral authority, and the inspirations of his intelligence are reincorporated as a functioning force in the reality of his family's daily life." - Maya Deren, "Divine Horsemen"
