Without a previous connection to nature one should avoid trying contacting spirits. You will need helpers and they come to you when you experience nature in a deeper way. If you want to try this, go outside and ask the great spirit for guidance and helpers in meditation. This is where to start, your foundation to build upon if you seek to enter the spirit realm. Don't put your head in the clouds unless your feet are connected to the earth.
Back to the original point I think that there is currently some kind of malaise that is keeping people from opnely expressing joy and peace. Dark forces have come and now openly oppress those who do not have the power to deal with them. Today's fight is NOT political, it is spiritual and I fear we are all in grave danger. Keep love and light close to your heart in all things, live with care and deliberation.
most dances are held at night,especially after a good meal. during a period of thirteen months in the 1950's, the Marshalls (Lorna and Lawrence Marshall, authors of many books detailing San shamanism*) observedthirty-nine dances. In the July (mid-winter) of that period, eight dances were held. They are common occurances, a routine part of San life. Everyone comes to a dance - men, women, children and visitors. Indeed, people consider it dangerous to absent themselves because they would expose themselves to the predations of the spirits of the dead

I think we need to dance more, trance more, and as you say gain access more to these other realities in whole because if we don't we lose them to other that try to control them.
you know the score?
It seems we are shy to open up, and feel weak when it comes to fighting for freedom. Freedom can and will unlock many treasures, but we need to better understand what it means before we can seek it out!
Talking about the album, Robbie said; "I want people to feel elated, I want them to dance, I want them to forget about who they are and where they are for 50 minutes – and, within those 50 minutes of forgetting who they are, I also hope people relate to the songs.
Often, dances continue through the night and into the next morning; dawn is a time of especially fervent dancing.
The "medicine songs", like the "strong" things for which they are named, contain what the Ju/'hoansi San call n/om. this essence is a diffuse potency that has been likened to electricity: When under control, it can be harnessed for the benefit of the whole community; out of control or in intense concentrations it is dangerous.
