Be aware that this Tumblr frequently includes pictures of art made with animal remains, as well as occasional liberal political ideologies. Mostly it's nature photography and art (and not just of charismatic megafauna).

I discovered neopaganism in the mid-1990s, and shortly thereafter began my work with animal totems and neoshamanism. Over the years I've wandered through various paths, ranging from Wicca-flavored neopaganism to Chaos magic, but for the past few years I've been creating Therioshamanism, a post-industrial neo-shamanic path. I've also been creating various neopagan ritual tools and other sacred art from hides, bones, beads and other such things since about the same time. And I've written several nonfiction books on totemism, animal magic, and related topics. My next book is "Plant and Fungus Totems: Connect With Spirits of Field, Forest and Garden", due out from Llewellyn in May 2014.
A few places to find me, as I'm all over the internet:
Ask me anything
In a shocking incident, a disabled military veteran says United Airlines employees kicked his service dog not once but twice, while at the airport. One employee also insulted him.
Jim Stanek is the founder of Paws and Stripes, which pairs disabled vets with service dogs. Jim has served three combat tours in Iraq and has PTSD and a brain injury.
The pair were dealing with canceled flights and delays last weekend. After 48 hours of waiting at Dulles Airport in Washington, he said Sarge, his service dog, was kicked once at the ticket counter and then once again on a shuttle.
