She is part of a rare breed of lightening shamans who have received a spontaneous awakening of shamanic knowledge. Lori first journeyed into the shamanic underworld in where she found the spiritual realm of Power Animals. Her teachers were Mayan Ancestors who took her through a two year initiation with the spirits of four Jaguar. Her later intimate connection with Lion, given to her by a Haitian shaman has been an extraordinary experience and has enhanced greatly her healing powers.
By merging and forming a sacred relationship with animal spirits she is able to support her clients with insight and change through her cutting edge shamanic counseling practice in Sedona, Arizona where she resides.
The spirit world is alive and well through the generosity and concern that power animals show towards us humans. From the voices of the animals lies the lessons of our connection to all things. Listening and learning we come to know ourselves. These animal spirits serve as our protectors, guides, companions and helpers on our spiritual journey. From ancient Egypt to the now emerging contemporary shamanism movement, the embodiment of animal spirits, the power of their symbolism and the profundity of their lessons can bring deeper truths and empowerment.
Shamans rely heavily on the guidance and wisdom of power animals and this book is an accumulation of researching the meaning given by shamans all over the world to power animals. The book is then enhanced by the personal experiences of two shamanic practitioners, Lori Morrison and Maya Starhawk who have a combined forty years of experience in working with animal spirits throughout their spiritual evolution. Through the actual channeling of information from each of the animals featured in this guide, the messages to humanity are practical and fresh and a surprising journey into oneself.
Through ancient wisdom and the magic of power animals, this guide will help you to identify, merge with and embrace your human connection to the spirits of almost two hundred animals. These connections can stay with you for a lifetime. This guide will also help you to understand the significance of the animals that appear throughout your life helping you to uncover the many aspects of the human journey and changing the way you see and experience the world.
