About the eBook

The Groundwork to the Ritual Body Postures
and the Trance-Experience

Ritual Body Postures combined with sound and rhythm are door openers to manifold worlds of consciousness.

The anthropologist Dr. Felicitas D. Goodman (1914-2005) came to this insight through more than 20 years of research work. Nana Nauwald carries on this research for 25 years.

By combining a quick rhythm with special body postures found in different cultures and ages, reaching back up to 40,000 years, body and mind are stimulated to a conscious and creative interplay that leads into a heightened alert state of consciousness. The experience in the intentional induced state of trance can be a path to gain healthful insights. They can also open the doors to the potential of one's own creativity, one's own inner wisdom and strength and stimulate self-healing processes.

This workbook and reference book contains 65 Ritual Body Postures with extensive descriptions to take up a posture. It also includes pictures of ancient statues from which these postures originate and their historical and cultural background. Detailed drawings and photographs of the postures complete the practical instructions.
