Overview

Are there totems beyond Wolf, Bear, Eagle? Do you want to deepend you relationship with your totems?

From the author of 'Fang and Fur, Blood and Bone: A Primal Guide to Animal Magic' comes a new work that redefines the modern concept of practical animal totemism.

Join Lupa as she explores beyond the big impressive North American birds and mammals, how therianthropes can use totemism in conjunction with their therianthropy, and how everyday substances, commonly found in food and drink, can be use in totem rituals. Plus, you'll learn about how to create the last totem card deck you'll ever need, and ideas for integrating totemism more deeply into your everyday life, for the benefit of all involved.

Free from formulaic dictionary entries, and streamlined without tons of prefabricated spells and rituals, and full of material based on Lupa's years of experience, DIY Totemism is the ultimate guide to a personal relationship with totem animals.

Meet the Author

Lupa is a pagan and neoshaman living in Portland. She is currently a graduate student pursuing a Master's of Science in counseling psychology with an emphasis on ecopsychology. When not buried under reading assignments, she is an avid hiker, reads nonfiction for fun, and is rediscovering the joys of video games. While she has been a practitioner of neopaganism, particularly animal magic, since the mid-1990s, she is currently focused on creating a personal neoshamanic path, therioshamanism. In the past she has also worked with various sorts of eclectic neopaganism, Chaos magic, and experimental magic. Lupa's nonfiction writing covers a variety of topics. Her primary focus is animal magic; her first book, Fang and Fur, Blood and Bone: A Primal Guide to Animal Magic broke a number of conventions of material on totemism and other forms of animal magic. She followed it up with her most recent work, DIY Totemism: Your Personal Guide to Animal Magic. In between these two works she also published the groundbreaking A Field Guide to Otherkin. She is currently editing three anthologies as well: Talking About the Elephant: An Anthology of Neopagan Perspectives on Cultural Appropriation (November 2008); Engaging the Spirit World: Shamanism, Totemism and Other Animistic Practices (2009); and Digging Up the Ostrich's Head: Animal Sacrifice in Modern Pagan Practices (2010)
