Reading over that story in hindsight (years after I wrote it) made me laugh out loud at parts. It was so insanely intense at the time – maybe the hardest thing I’ve ever done. But now, after four years of Medicine and experience, it blows my mind some of the things I believed. Like the shamans were above getting swept up in gossip. And my emotional purges with the jealousy! My God – and I wasn’t exaggerating either. Seriously, get a grip!
