Questions of dreaming, death, and shared consciousness are central to our collective imagination as these matters persist as popular topics for debate and as part of our desire for self-understanding. This groundbreaking study of entrancement manifest in dreams, music, the sacred, and shared feeling brings together a staggering number of fields to explore multiple forms of consciousness. Ruth Finnegan engages with her peers working in anthropology, ethnomusicology, sociology, psychology, parapsychology, cognitive science, and more, to build a strikingly diverse base of evidence and analysis to consider a subject that is all too often overlooked. Entrancement provides a comprehensive and original look at altered states of consciousness and their impacts on our minds, bodies, cultures, and selves.
Review Quotes
Amy Shuman, The Ohio State University
"This is a marvelous book, in more than one sense.  Building on earlier work by her and others on storytelling, communication, and community, this edited volume by Ruth Finnegan follows the ordinary experiences of everyday life to venture into questions beyond the ordinary, in the domain of the mystical and the enchanted, as an inquiry about imagination and the human mind."
