This week here on The Spiral Dance, we're discussing Animal Totems.
In the general neoPagan community people - not everyone - who work with animal spirit guides talk about Animal Totems.
Purists will tell you that that's kind of a misnomer. Totems are not really spirit guides and spirit guides are not really totems.
Where do YOU stand on this immense question??
Well, I'm here to untangle the whole mess and by the time we're finished we'll all know what really is what.
So we start of with a pretty clear definition of what a Totem is - where the word came from and how it was used. And we'll look at WHERE the word was used as well.
Plus, we'll find out what Carl Gustave Jung had to say about Totems.
Then we'll get into Power Animals, and animal guides, with some - interesting - contemporary theories on the subject.
Be well! Do good! Enjoy the show.
Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include Kate Bush: "Hounds of Love"; Burning Sage: "Dragon"; Lipbone Reading: "Sacred Ground"; Peter Janson: "Dragonfly"; St.Vincent: "Rattlesnake" and more.
