The experience of the apparent arrival of a supernatural power is one of profound meaning and intensity. I first experienced it during a trance-dance session following a particularly long and unpleasant migraine, and have subsequently felt its emergence within me on a number of occasions. It begins as a kind of ‘ecstatic pain’ – the San description of n/um that ‘it boils in my belly’ being very appropriate here! – before powerful emotions of wonder and a wild cycling of energy propel me into a perceptual place beyond both ecstasy and pain. I speak of it only rarely, but the question of what happens in my neurology during these episodes is one that continues to fascinate me.
