Abstract

Despite their obvious differences, I'm intrigued by the similarities between meditation and hypnosis. Participants in both activities are able to bridge the divisions between mind and body, between conscious and unconscious, between will and action. They enter the flow of their experience and encounter, without duality, whatever their minds perceive, no longer distinguishing a concrete "I" separate from whatever they're noticing.
