Sacred Animals

by Gordon MacLellan, Capall Bann Publishing, £9.95, 174pp, p/bk.


For many people, working with ‘animal spirits’ seems to be nothing more than fantasising about a ‘power animal’ encountered during a single pathworking, and seems to bear little or no relation to animals in ‘real life’. Fortunately, Sacred Animals demonstrates that there’s a bit more to it than that. In this immensely practical book, Gordon MacLellan shows us how we might form relationships with the animals of the Otherworld through stillness, masks, dance and dream. He also stresses the importance of becoming active in the world, as he so eloquently puts it "- action inspired by spirit." Sacred Animals contains a wealth of practical exercises & hints for both individuals and people working in groups on a wide range of issues - from ‘Making Things’ to Conservation issues. This is a delightful book which I have no hesitation in recommending highly. - Phil Hine
