Exorcism in Colombia

With willing participants covered in dirt and surrounded by fire, it is not exactly a conventional religious or spiritual ceremony.

But the bizarre scenes are part of a 20-year exorcism tradition led by the mysterious 'Brother Hermes', who claims the ritual rids people of evil spirits.

The Colombian exorcisms see people dressed entirely in white before lying across a stretch of dirt in between red and yellow marker posts.
Hermes Cifuentes, or "Brother Hermes," as he calls himself, for two decades helping his countrymen to get rid of demons and other supernatural beings uninvited. According to Hermes, each week it becomes no less than ten people who want to get rid of the disease or get rid of ghosts.
