This section contains reflections and thoughts on the salvia experience, as well as some poetry which captures some of the things I have felt and seen while besaged. Unlike many people I have never felt that 'trip reports' really capture anything of the essence of the experience for me. Detailing an unreasoned and flowing psychedelic experience with words, grammar and syntax seems to subtract something important from it for me, yet writing is useful in the integration process. Like any unusual experience, salvia besagements tend to 'unpack' slowly in one's mind over a period of days, weeks and months, as the mind, body and spirit try to integrate and attune to what the senses have seen. This is the time of greatest learning...
