Trance denotes a variety of processes, ecstasy, techniques, modalities and states of mind, awareness and consciousness. Trance states may occur involuntarily and unbidden.

The term trance may be associated with hypnosis, meditation, magic, flow, and prayer. It may also be related to the earlier generic term, altered states of consciousness, which is no longer used in "consciousness studies" discourse.

Famous quotes containing the word trance:

    My trance frightens them,
    breaks the dance,
    empties the market-place;
    if I but pass they fall
    back, frantically.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    To begin to use cultural forces for the good of our daughters we must first shake ourselves awake from the cultural trance we all live in. This is no small matter, to untangle our true beliefs from what we have been taught to believe about who and what girls and women are.
    Jeanne Elium (20th century)
