In the essay Going Under: An Experiment in Altered States, Christian Carvajal writes a delightful and interesting narrative of an experiment in hypnosis . . . first starting out with what one might think of as religious bear-beating in regard to the belief by some that hypnosis is inherently Satanic . . . which it most certainly is NOT . . . heck, folks who perform Active Prayer are in as much of a trance as anyone within experiential hypnosis and for many even more so and many would suggest that sort of direct experience is the way prayer should be practiced.
Trance and hypnosis are very very good things as is a spiritual component to one’s life . . . in my opinion, you are free to disagree as I have absolutely no problem with you being wrong.
In any case, Carvajal writes an entertaining and informative piece that is very much worth the read . . . so go on over to http://www.weeklyvolcano.com/mudroom/features/2010/12/Lacey-hypnotist-experiment-in-altered-states/ and give it a good looksee.
