Trance 2, Requirement 1
Describe your regular method of entering basic trance. (min. 100 words)
While most people enter and exit trance states regularly, reliable methods of entering trance on purpose are things done deliberately. When I deliberately seek trance, I rely on a 210 beat-per-minute drumming tape of about fifteen minutes in length. The most common trancework I do involves an ecstatic body posture from Felicitas Goodman's work. This method simply involves putting the tape on and "assuming the position" for a full fifteen minutes. The fifteen minute duration was decided on based on a combination of Dr. Goodman's findings and my own experiments. Particular favourites are the Bear Posture and the Singing Shaman posture. Both of these are healing postures, though I simply find that I enjoy the experiences they bring.
