Bestselling author of several fantasy novels including Marion Zimmer Bradley's Ancestors of Avalon, Diana L. Paxson is a leading light in the Pagan community and has been hailed as a priestess for all seasons. Here she turns her attention to Trance Possession.

This is the most comprehensive and exhaustive guide to how to safely and effectively enter and to exit possessory trance--a voluntary offering of one's body as a vehicle for spirit work. It differs from other forms of trance in that one's "normal" personality is replaced by a personality that is identified by oneself and one's community as a spirit or a god.

Paxson explores all aspects of trance possession, including:

  • How to prepare for possessory trance
  • How to enter and exit trance possession safely, and what to do if things get too heavy
  • Possessions in the past
  • Saints and Spirits including those found in Afro-Diasporic religions
  • Possessory trance in the Pagan community

A practical book, each chapter includes two to five exercises that assist the reader in their personal quests for possession.
