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)

    Very interesting & fresh ideas.

    This is book has got some pretty good ideas in here. My favorite parts so far are compository animals. Which is basically like a servitor in which you can create to serve you in some way by designing its characteristics and features, then making a physical representation of the animal or being in which it can be attached to. Such as a statue or drawing. She even goes as far to say that you can create your own species. Some being like maybe a wolf with hawk wings she gives for example.

    The other part I really like is shapeshifting. Which talks about the non-physical part of it in which you invoke the animal within you giving it a limited control over your body or to allow your self to adapt the traits of using an animal through other means.

    I think this book is good for a beginner or even an advanced practitioner. There is a lot of explanations and ideas from the author and from others. It's not like those typical books which have explanations of animals listed in the authors perspective. She gives you ideas on how to create your own ways of doing things, which a very fresh for me.

    If you need a book to start out reading in animal magick, this is the book you're looking for.
