Here 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 connecting with Saints and Spirits, including those found in Afro-Diasporic religions A practical book of particular interest to witches and pagans, each chapter includes two to five exercises that will assist you in your personal experiences with possession.
