There are many forms that the experience of trance or altered states of consciousness have taken over the course of human history. All indigenous peoples and tribal cultures have rich healing traditions which are often characterised by the use of trance states.
The word trance implying a specific state is really a misnomer as there is no single state of human consciousness that we can call "trance" rather there is a constantly shifting interplay of the content of human consciousness. The richer this interplay the happier and healthier we are.
In many cultures around the world posture, sound and movement all played a part in facilitating a shift into altered states of consciousness.
