The Snake Ceremony was created from a dream. One of transformation, rebirth and the decay of existence into a new way of being. It spoke to me of the harsh realities that human kind is facing both internally and externally as well as the light that emerges from darkness - a purification of the soul of sorts. Among the decay is a mirrored image that turns everything on its head, up is down and down is up. As we sit in the belly of the great Mother Earth, we are cleansed and turned inside out until we hear the sound of a heartbeat long forgotten.
