The Shaman’s Journey: Nine Worlds

I love this installation. It really creeps me out, in a good way.

I had posted this on my other blog years ago, before doing any journey work myself. Interesting to see it now and have a different perspective on it. I find it decidedly less creepy now. I love the way it starts out eery and grey and ends up green and colourful, like we’ve just been taken on a journey that had a happy ending. It really speaks to me of the shaman’s connection with the unseen.

  1. Wow! This was totally transfixing. Just catching up on some of your postings. Ever since I saw films of Siberia I have always wanted to go there. Something about it that speaks deeply to me. Maybe it’s just the raw, primal beauty of it.
