The greatest gift animals can offer us is a grounding connection to the present and at the same time, a direct link to the sacred, or spirit.
Indigenous cultures all over the world have long held the animal kingdom in the highest regard, creating mythologies to help translate their powerful gifts. These messages, born from each animal’s unique strengths and abilities, can help us navigate our own inner landscapes, remind us of our own strengths, or speak to larger, external challenges that often feel insurmountable.
I work from a place in between the spiritual and physical realms—the space animals occupy. I believe we need connection to both in order to heal and nurture ourselves and each other, and to take action in the face of the global challenges we all face together.
