All journeys, shamanic or otherwise, begin with sacrifice, and in remembrance of a salvia divinorum vision from 2007, I felt that this series should properly begin with a depiction of the most powerful sacrifice of all: the voluntary giving of oneís own life. Here is expressed, in somewhat gruesome detail a seeker kneeling and sacificing his own head for the purposes of attaining knowledge beyond the ken of the head-based mindís domain. Naked before a portal of light, the blood which here denotes knowkledge and visionary experience drips back into his body.
