Animal Dreaming can be seen as a unique opportunity to broaden one’s ability to interpret the symbolic language of the animal kingdom. It brings to the People, possibly for the first time, a comprehensive list of over 200 Australian animals – introducing them to its readers as totems, teachers, healers and spiritual allies.
Animal Dreaming provides ample guidelines for partaking in your own medicine walk – the ability to ‘listen with one’s eyes’, the chance to discover your own animal totem by means of a guided meditative journey, and how to honor your totem once found. It illustrates quite concisely Australia’s seasonal wheel of the year, introduces its readers to what it means to be a “feral” Australian, while expansively listing the spiritual and symbolic interpretations of over 200 native, domesticated and introduced animals, birds, reptiles and fish.
Following in the tradition of Animal Speak by Ted Andrews, Animal Dreaming is an Australian first and a must have for anyone interested in Earth Wisdom and rudimentary Shamanic Lore.
