Présentation de l'éditeur

Trance-inducing postures for shamanic journeying, initiation, healing, divination, and transformation of the soul

• Provides practices from Mayan, Egyptian, African, Native American, Sumerian, and other ancient and indigenous traditions

• Shows how these practices can detoxify the energy body

The human need for ecstasy--the ability to be free of the limitations of ordinary consciousness--is as imperative as the need for food. Renowned anthropologist Felicitas Goodman claimed that being deprived of ecstasy was the fundamental cause of all forms of addiction. Indigenous cultures and the civilizations of antiquity were aware of this and developed specific rituals to induce and channel trance energies to detoxify and nourish the subtle body in order to experience the ecstatic reality that gives life to matter.

The body postures seen in ancient art from Mayan, Egyptian, African, Native American, Sumerian, and other ancient and indigenous traditions are a doorway to inducing this kind of ecstatic trance. People who assume these postures in a ritual context are able to experience expanded and transformative states of consciousness.

Following up on the groundbreaking introduction of this practice in her first book, Ecstatic Body Postures, Belinda Gore provides a new series of 20 sacred postures and exercises that allow for a deeper understanding and utilization of these shamanic practices. She shows how to use the energy awakened by these practices for healing, shapeshifting, initiations into the mysteries of death and rebirth, divination, spirit journeying, and restoring balance to the cosmic patterns disrupted by destructive human activity.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 No Cd/Mp3 with digital version 27 juin 2012
Par Antoinette - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
So I bought this to read VIA kindle app for android. Nowhere did amazon mention that you do not receive the included CD (or as one would assume purchasing digitally, an MP3). This extra perk was a large part of why I even purchased the book. I hope others will be informed by this if the CD is part of the reason for considering purchase, as Amazon clearly does not inform it's digital customers of such things.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unique fascinating book with CD. You can yourself try out these postures and experience spirit journeys. 23 septembre 2011
Par Iona Main Stewart - Publié sur
This is a unique book providing valuable both theoretical and practical information about sacred postures, including healing, divination, metamorphosis, spirit journey and initiation postures. The book is based on the work carried out by the late Felicitas Goodman, the anthropologist, as well as on the author's own research over the years.

Ecstasy is a spiritual experience, and the author states that we have a collective longing for it. More than eighty ritual postures have been identified as doorways to altered states of consciousness in which "ordinary people have ecstatic experiences: seeing visions, undertaking spirit journeys, and, yes, sometime speaking in tongues". These ritual postures were discovered by Felicitas Goodman from indigenous tribal people. They were documented in "core drawings, totem poles, terracotta figures, and pottery designs".

A CD containing trance rhythms - rattling and/or drumming segments - is included with the book - good idea! These sounds are necessary to stimulate the nervous system and initiate the change in consciousness we know as ecstasy. We also need to prepare ourselves by setting up an altar, using a sage or cedar smudge stick to smudge ourselves in smoke, calling the spirits to us and feeding them with corn meal, tobacco or other herbs.

Those attending Belinda Gore's monthly groups and workshops have practised these postures with amazing success. They made contact with the spirits, experienced specific healings and travelled into the lower and upper worlds.

Unfortunately, I did not have time to completely finish the book or even try any of the postures, as I had to return the book to the library. I will now purchase the book and try out these fascinating postures. I also have the problem that I'd never heard of smudge sticks, and must try to get hold of these as well in order to carry out the ceremony correctly.

This is a fairly short book, absolutely well and clearly written. Twenty different postures are described, a chapter being devoted to each one. Each chapter includes a portrayal of the posture and a clear description to facilitate its assumption.

This is a fantastic book, and I would recommend that you too purchase it, if you feel ready to experience these spirit journeys.

I will return and edit this review at a later date when I have been able to try out some of the postures.

A book that carries on/brings forth more ancestral knowledge that the book Ecstatic Body Postures brought to us.

The included CD is very good as it reinforces a more Heart Centered type of drumming and rattling that I have already been introduced to by Spirit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THE BOOK on healing postures 12 juillet 2014
Par Romgard - Publié sur
i like the subject and find it very interesting and i think shamanism and particularly trance-induction will become mainstream again, but without the religious dogma and non-sense associated with it. buy the paperback, because the ebook doesnt contain the audio-cd and the drawings in it are not very clear..

This book is easy to understand and very interesting. The cd contained with the trance rhythms is mesmerizing. I haven't found the courage to attempt one of the postures yet, but will in the near future. Wish me luck!
