Hey there I'm not a shaman I'm just looking into human happyness (lol if I can put it that way) and I researched peak experiences and would like to acheive these high states without getting addictted to crazy opiates or other powerful drugs. I researched that shamans do something like the whole trance state, I'm interested and if any of you have how long has it took from when u started to acheive peak experience (without the use of drugs) through trance state or any other method?

Also have u got any step by step guides or could u lay out any please that don't go on too long, since I've seen quite a few books on these that will take ages to read and won't work like a lot of this pseudo science stuff.


Thanks

it took me a long time to reach a state like that, but it is different for different people. I started using drugs and did so heavily, only after stopping was I able to achieve what you describe and become initiated so to speak through meeting of my guide, invocation, and dismemberment rituals. so really like two years, but that was after the drug stint I mentioned.

With respect and hopefully without sounding too preachy but Shamanic practice is nothing to do with 'getting high' or journeying for entertainment purposes. In fact sometimes these 'highs', especially the erotic ones are typical of when a trance goes wrong.

Perhaps there are other forms of trance inducing practice which aim for these 'peak' states, I'm not sure.
