Be aware that this Tumblr frequently includes pictures of art made with animal remains, as well as rampant feminist opinions, corgis and bats, and lush landscapes.
Artist, author, (neo)shaman, and wannabe polymath living in the Pacific Northwe(s)t.
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. Currently working on "New Paths to Plant and Fungus Totems".
A few places to find me, as I'm all over the internet:

My spirituality is actually enhanced by science. Science only proves to me, that the world out there, is so fucking complex, and that completely validates what I feel/see/hear/experience.
It’s incredibly complex, agreed! My main issue is when people use “it’s so complex!” to then justify whatever unfounded conjectures they may have. “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy” is not a scientific proof of anything. It is better to say “We don’t know” than to say “We don’t know YET, but I THINK”, IMO.
