The Illustrated Bestiary: Guidance and Rituals from 36 Inspiring Animals (Includes 36 oracle cards)
By Maia Toll
From spirit animals to totems, people across cultures and through the centuries have felt a spiritual and symbolic connection to animals. In this follow-up to her best-selling book The Illustrated Herbiary, author, herbalist, and spiritual wellness guide Maia Toll explores that magical, mystical relationship and the power of animal energy to help illuminate personal habits, guide intentions, and inform actions.
Following profiles that highlight each animal's most meaningful trait, Toll provides rituals and reflections that guide readers in cultivating that animal's energy in their own lives. Does the spotted skunk's ability to ward off enemies many times her size shed light on how to handle our own conflicts? Can katydid's five eyes lend a clarity of vision when we need to see the bigger picture?
Thirty-six oracle cards featuring art from the book by illustrator Kate O'Hara help shape readers' meditations. From the humble house mouse to the magnificent elephant, this beautifully illustrated guide to animal spirits provides deep insights and new ways of connecting with the creatures that walk, crawl, slither, swim, and fly.
