Background

A description of the experience

Hans Peter Duerr – Dreamtime

 In this vein a medieval mystic reported ‘It seemed to me that I was picked up with my entire body and carried away so fast, not even an arrow could fly that fast off a crossbow; later I asked whether my body had been gone.  But they told me afterwards my body was not gone’.  Upon the question, in what manner she had been carried away she answered ‘It seems as if in truth it was as if in flight; I do not know of any more appropriate comparison’
