According to our best scientific understanding, ninety seven percent of the Universe is invisible to humans. It seems likely that none of that hidden part is irrelevant to the business of the Universe, and therefore none is irrelevant to Life, or to us. Also likely is that some part of the invisible world has special relevance for humans and their well-being, and that people before us have made forays into this world and come back into the visible realm with special knowledge of specific relevance. A number of such forays have been recorded in books like Black Elk Speaks and Lame Deer Seeker of Visions. Such seeking is not unknown in our Western culture, but mystical spiritual experience has fallen into disfavor at least since the Age of Reason, which anoints conscious rationality as the One True Way of Knowledge, and denigrates all others. But what if pure reason is only one of many ways of knowing, as those of other cultures and other times have believed? What if, by restricting ourselves to just this One Way, we are depriving ourselves of knowledge that will make us better, more fully integrated, human beings?
In The Power of Ecstatic Trance, psychologist Nicholas Brink goes beyond merely asking this question--he provides ways of accessing this invisible world for purposes of healing, divination, initiation, and other practical Earthly purposes, including spiritual growth and the resolution of inner conflicts. He demonstrates how, by using very specific postures (with rattling or drumming providing a non-ordinary background) an ordinary person can achieve visions and insights often thought to be the exclusive province of shamans. In this way, he provides us with access to the invisible realm that is most relevant to human life on Earth. This is a great service to the human community, and a gift to all who make use of it. I, for one, plan to give these postures a try. I am especially interested in the one thought to be the oldest of those yet discovered: the Venus of Galenberg posture. Dating back at least 32,000 years, it has its own special purpose. According to Belinda Gore: "We go to the Sky World to find the patterns that are the original intention for the Earth." As one who believes that our culture and people have lost sight of these original intentions, I am eager to learn what this posture--or rather the portal it provides to esoteric knowledge--has to teach me about right relationship to Nature and the Cosmos.
By Nicholas E. Brink, PhD
I had never really thought about postures and the physiology of a shamanic trance before I read this very informative book. But I know through my own experience with bioenergetics that physical movement and postures can release a depth of energy that normally remains hidden. We live in times that call for, no, demand that we become our own shamans and look for answers from within like our ancestors did. This is also a great book for experienced shamans; it brings a lot of new information to the subject of shamanism.
