Explore the Wisdom of the Animal World
Shamanism teaches us that the intelligence of nature is all around us, waiting for us to reach out with open hearts and listen to its guidance. When we turn our attention to the incredible community of animal life and the teachings they have to share, we open ourselves to a vibrant, interconnected world full of spiritual truths and transformational insights.
Through myth, tradition, science, and story—combined with the power of personal observation—we can see how animals offer profound life lessons every day:
- Ants readily demonstrate the power of teamwork.
- Bears show us how to protect what’s most important to us.
- Eagles embody the value of clear vision.
