ABSTRACT
The article describes a seance session facilitated by Trina Kamp. Trina sublets her body to a five-hundred-year-old-physician named Doctor Doran. For U.S. $15, you can have a seance session with Doctor Doran. Trina's husband, Steve, and son are present during the seance session. It takes Trina 3 minutes to trance out while the other participants chant some folk songs. When Doctor Doran takes over the body of Trina, he mutters some unintelligible words. Looking at the throat of Trina, one can see that the performance is within her vocal--not to mention, ethical--capabilities. People consult Doctor Doran for a variety of problems, including sickness and interpersonal relationships.
