41 Ascent of Soul/Ascension




Description

This article is from the Religion-Shamanism FAQ, by Dean Edwards, Stef Jones, Jilara, Jane Beckman, Ann Albers with numerous contributions by others.

41 Ascent of Soul/Ascension

The experience of the consciousness
leaving the physical body and ascending into the heavens. Shamanic
journeys are often very similar to those found under 'ascension' or
'the ascent of soul' or to the 'descent of soul'.
Dean Edwards (deane@netcom.com)

In Harner style shamanism, we say that the soul travels to the upper
world or the lower world -- perhaps this is another way of saying
that? Ascension is also a Christian term, though.
Stef Jones (stef@netcom.com)

Descent of Soul: The conscious descent of soul into the nether-
world, Underworld, hells, or other lower realms, usually via
descent into the Earth.
