Following 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. To help reach these deep, ecstatic trance states, this book includes a CD of four fifteen-minute sessions with drums and/or rattling to be used with the ritual postures. The book also includes 20 new postures and a summary of the new perspectives provided by decades of continuing practice and teaching of ritual postures.
