Retrieving the Powers of The Ecstatic Experience

When we learn of the extraordinary powers of shamans of antiquity and contemporary indigenous communities – to see at distances, to journey into other worlds, to heal, to divine the unknown, to shape shift and to experience death and rebirth – we realize what we have lost in our Western emphasis on rationality. But we are capable of recovering these inherent gifts. Learning from the research of anthropologist Felicitas Goodman we can use ritual postures and the method she developed to open the door to these ecstatic experiences.
Join Belinda Gore, author of Ecstatic Body Postures and The Ecstatic Experience, and Nick Brink, author of The Power of Ecstatic Trance, both psychologists who are certified instructors of The Cuymaungue Method, in learning to use this safe and simple tool for engaging the whole brain to open your capacity for shamanic gifts and ecstatic experience.
