Battlefield of the Soul came into being after meeting a coral cobra in Brazil that guided me during a plant-based medicine ceremony showing that fear is medicine and everything you ever need is present in the body. Battlefield of the Soul talks about this medicine, about this everything, about the snake/the body as the healer, present at the trial before death. It tells a story of other-becoming, like the snake who sheds its skin, symbol of transformation and eternity.
