Read an Excerpt

Many of you reading this will have had pets for years. Some of you may consider them to be your familiars. In D. J. Conway's Animal Magick you'll discover new ways to learn from them (and other creatures) in order to achieve spiritual enlightenment and personal power.

The book includes explicit instructions on how to find familiars and work with them. You'll learn how to meditate and do magick with them. More than 100 animals are described and you will discover what powers and knowledge each can share with you.

Animal Magick shows you how your work with familiars can take on an even greater purpose that is true to the Pagan tradition of remembering and honoring your ancestors. That's because this is the first book to explore the subject of familiars from a European Pagan perspective. Now you can investigate ancient European Shamanic traditions — including your heritage, perhaps — that were destroyed during the Burning Times.

Another unique feature of this book is that for each animal Conway has included a special "power chant" to invoke that animal's natural and magickal attributes. This way, even if you are not meditating, doing a ritual, or going on a shamanic journey to the "otherworld," you can still call on your familiars to bring you the help and confidence you need.

Animal Magick shows you a powerful path to a more creative, more secure future. If you are looking to improve your life, you owe it to yourself to get this book.

    Not Bad But Slightly Disappointing

    I bought this hoping to add it to my library. The book was ok, but there were so many animals missing from this book that I'm quite certain I could have found another book on the same topic that would have fit into my library better, and had more information.

    Young readers give comments

    My friend checked it out at the library and loved it so I went to the store to check it out. It was so cool! I read the back and flipped through it. I bought it and now me and my friends won't put it down we compare the animals to ourselves and we use the chants. I strongly reccomend this book.
