This study of dreaming, death and shared consciousness develops a context that is humanistic, comparative and evidence-based in its engagement with the work of cultural anthropology, ethnomusicology and the study of the imagination. It also reaches into current research on consciousness at the interface of neuroscience, anthropology, sociology, musicology, computer studies, psychology/parapsychology, literature and cognitive studies, in the process of drawing its content from a range of original writing from diverse disciplinary and cultural backgrounds.

'This is a marvellous book, in more than one sense. Building on earlier work by her and others on storytelling, communication, and community, this edited volume by Ruth Finnegan follows the ordinary experiences of everyday life to venture into questions beyond the ordinary, in the domain of the mystical and the enchanted, as an inquiry about imagination and the human mind.' - Professor Amy Shuman, The Ohio State University
