The Power of Ecstatic Trance: Practices for Healing, Spiritual Growth, and Accessing the Universal Mind
The Power of Ecstatic Trance
Practices for Healing, Spiritual Growth, and Accessing the Universal Mind
1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 1591431522
A guide to ecstatic trance for spiritual and emotional development, spirit journeying, and connection to the collective unconscious • Describes more than 20 ecstatic trance postures for healing, divination, spirit journeys, shape-shifting, past-life recovery, and connecting to the Akashic field • Explores the physiology and psychology of ecstatic trance journeying • Provides guidance for those with little or no experience as well as methods to deepen practice Over the millennia shamanic trance journeying has been used as a way of healing, of providing answers to questions, and of offering solutions to individual, family, and community problems. Though traditionally it was the shaman of the community who went on such journeys, the revolutionary work of the late anthropologist Felicitas Goodman shows that we all have these shamanic powers. Her research on the body postures found in ancient primitive art and in the practices of contemporary shamans offers each of us the ability to experience ecstatic trance journeys firsthand. A student of Felicitas Goodman and Belinda Gore, psychologist Nicholas Brink examines more than 20 traditional trance postures for divination, decision making, letting go of guilt and grief, healing of illness and emotional pain, spirit journeys, shape-shifting, interacting with animal spirits and the dead, and discovering past lives. Exploring the physiology and psychology of ecstatic journeying, he offers guidance for those with little or no experience as well as methods for longtime practitioners to deepen their practice and reclaim the extrasensory power of our ancient ancestors. Offering solid theories of how ecstatic trance triggers healing and spiritual development, Brink explains how trance journeying allows us to tap in to the collective unconscious, or Universal Mind, and access the information matrix of the Akashic field.

Cómo trabajar con los centros de los chakras a fin de curar lesiones psíquicas no resueltas • Revela cómo las lesiones síquicas se quedan atrapadas en el cuerpo energético. • Establece un vínculo entre cada etapa de desarrollo y cada uno de los chakras principales. • Presenta una guía detallada sobre la sanación y eliminación de tensiones contenidas en cada chakra. El sistema de los chakras identifica ocho centros en la anatomía psicológica de los seres humanos, cada uno de los cuales está asociado con una parte distinta del cuerpo físico o energético. Susan J. Wright, que se dedica al chamanismo y la psicoterapia Gestalt, muestra que cada chakra está también vinculado con una etapa distinta de desarrollo emocional y espiritual. Wright explica que los traumas de la vida experimentados en etapas particulares del desarrollo se quedan atrapados dentro del cuerpo energético porque se aferran a su chakra correspondiente. Al identificar el chakra afectado y trabajar con él, es posible abrir una puerta a un mundo de imágenes transformativas, lo que permite sanar estas heridas psíquicas mediante potentes técnicas chamánicas. La autora presenta ejercicios físicos y meditaciones guiadas que ofrecen a quienes las practican una manera de unir y robustecer las partes fragmentadas de su cuerpo, y emprender así el camino hacia el bienestar físico, emocional y espiritual.

The Ayahuasca Experience: A Sourcebook on the Sacred Vine of Spirits
The Ayahuasca Experience
A Sourcebook on the Sacred Vine of Spirits
Paperback      ISBN: 1620552620
An exploration of the chemical, biological, psychological, and experiential dimensions of ayahuasca • Details the scientific discovery of ayahuasca’s sophisticated psychoactive delivery system in the brain and body and its potential applications in medicine and psychology • Includes contributions from Dennis J. McKenna, Ph.D., J. C. Callaway, Ph.D., and Charles S. Grob, M.D., on the ethnopharmacology, psychology, phytochemistry, and neuropharmacology of ayahuasca • Provides 24 firsthand accounts of ayahuasca experiences and resulting life changes Widely recognized by anthropologists as the most powerful and widespread shamanic hallucinogen, ayahuasca has been used by native Indian and mestizo shamans in Peru, Colombia, and Ecuador for healing and divination for thousands of years. Made from the Amazonian vine Banisteriopsis caapi and the DMT-laden leaf of Psychotria viridis, ayahuasca is regarded as the embodiment of intelligent plant beings who can offer spiritual teachings and healing knowledge to those who respectfully engage with them. Many Western-trained physicians and psychologists now acknowledge that ayahuasca allows access to spiritual dimensions of consciousness, otherworldly realms and beings, and visionary experiences indistinguishable from classic religious mysticism. With contributions from leading psychoactive scholars Dennis J. McKenna, Ph.D., Charles S. Grob, M.D., and J. C. Calloway, Ph.D., on the ethnopharmacology, psychology, phytochemistry, and neuropharmacology of ayahuasca, Ralph Metzner provides a comprehensive exploration of the chemical, biological, psychological, and experiential dimensions of this Amazonian hallucinogen. He includes more than 20 firsthand accounts from people who have participated in ayahuasca rituals and experienced major life changes as a result. He details the scientific discovery of ayahuasca’s sophisticated psychoactive delivery system in the brain and body as well as the deep psychological impact of this potent entheogen. He concludes with his own findings on ayahuasca, including its applications in medicine and psychology, and compares the worldview revealed by ayahuasca visions to that of modern cultures.
