Tantra and Trance Possession

Tantra History Lecture 2 – Phil Hine

Trance possession is a widespread religious phenomenon across the Indian subcontinent, yet only recently have scholars come to realise how central it is to Tantra. One finds it in a variety of guises from a fairly early point, particularly involving  “wild” deities such as Chamunda, Bhairava, and groups of Yoginis. In this lecture Phil Hine examines the textual evidence for possession rituals, unpacking the ideas embedded within them, and how they are thought to have worked.

Phil Hine (enfolding.org) is an independent researcher and occult practitioner, writing and lecturing on esoteric themes and practices for over thirty years. He is an engaged and engaging speaker, who brings insights from personal practice to reflections upon contemporary research on classical tantric texts.

This lecture is second in a series of three.
