In this article we analyse the results of two receptive trance-inducing methods (Body Monochord; Goodman Ritual Body Postures with fast rattling) that were compared between amplitude/significance mapping and rest. 28 EEG traces of two subjects (male/female) were obtained with a mobile brain imager during a group therapy ritual. Emphasis was put on an authentical group setting. Both trance inductions caused an increase of Beta-II waves, the posture an additional Delta wave increase. While… Expand
