Shamans had different manners to achieve the process of trance to connect with the spiritual world and receive knowledge for the benefit and harmony of their community. One way was to adopt poses during shamanic rites that stimulated meditative states and helped unlock stagnant energies to achieve altered states of consciousness.
The Cupisnique culture, located in Peru, evidenced these practices in its art, along with a spiritual development, as well as the Tlatilco cultures in Mexico and Chorrera in Ecuador.
