The Green Wolf

My ask box is open. I answer most questions privately, unless it's something that other people may be wondering about AND it's not something personal about the person asking. Feel free to ask me stuff about nature, working with animal parts in art and spirituality, paganism, ethical omnivory, sustainability and environmentalism, and so forth.

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

Artist, author, naturalist pagan, 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, and for several few years I created (and followed) Therioshamanism, a post-industrial neo-shamanic path. These days I've relaxed into a more integrated ecopaganism, less about rituals and journeying, and more about the sacred in every moment.

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 newest book is "Plant and Fungus Totems: Connect With Spirits of Field, Forest and Garden"..

A few places to find me, as I'm all over the internet:

Red Fox as Animal Totem
Most of my totems that I’ve written about here and back at Therioshamanism are ones I’d consider rather uncommon. I talk about the totems of plants, lichens and fungi because I want to reinforce the idea that they’re out there and are every bit as important as their animal compatriots, and even the animals I’ve written about, like Dusky Arion, aren’t the big, popular totems. This time around, though, I want to talk about one of the more ubiquitous totems that I’ve been working with for a decade now: Red Fox.
As I mentioned in a previous post, 2004 was kind of a rough year for me, but it also produced a great deal of growth. During this period of chaos, I was going through a lot of internal changes and realizations, and it wasn’t a pleasant experience. Some of my worst traits came out under the stress; as is common with primary totems, I identified quite deeply with Gray Wolf, and all too often under stress my fangs were showing. I’ve talked about secondary totems as those that enter into our lives to help us through a particular period of time or teach us something specific. And that’s where Red Fox came in.

I have ideas, lots of ‘em. I have 6,000 words under my belt for the day so far. I have coffee, and I am about to get food. I am less than 1500 words away from hitting my goal of 35,000 for the day, and I am poised to blow right past that.

This is the writing frenzy I’ve been trying to make time for. Look out, world, I’m about make another book happen!

I am currently writing about a hypothetical situation in which the totem Honey Badger could help you learn to play the violin. No, really. This is going to be a great book.

(And in case anyone is wondering how in the hell this happened, the hypothetical involves someone who keeps trying to learn the violin, but gets frustrated easily because the learning curve is a little steeper than they were expecting, and they’re worried someone might hear their mistakes while they practice. So they emulate Honey Badger by learning to be more persistent in getting what they want, and being less concerned about what others think. Randall’s infamous video aside, honey badgers pretty well ARE badasses that don’t give in easily and it takes a lot to get them to back down. So they’re a good model for those who want to be a little more stubborn for a good cause.)

IT’S HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLANT AND FUNGUS TOTEMS IS OFFICIALLY OUT!!!!!

Learning From Totems On Their Terms

I was meditating a bit a few evenings ago on the fights of butterflies.

See, I’d seen an image on Tumblr of two male Monarch butterflies scrapping over territory, and the caption said that they could get quite aggressive with each other. In fact, there’s a good chance many of you out there have seen butterflies engaged in battle, fluttering at each other in midair and even clutching and pushing at times. We’re inclined to see their struggle as “pretty”, and we may even mistake it as two butterflies happily dancing together.

Now think of two male elk battling it out over a patch of territory. We usually focus on the immense power in their bodies as they tussle, the sharp tines of branching antlers and the muscles in straining haunches. In fact, it is their physical strength that is one of the elk’s best-known traits.

Yet who is to say the elk is more fierce than the butterfly just because the insect is smaller and more delicate?

Therioshamanism: Dusky Arion as Animal Totem

“Dusky Arion” sounds like a pretty name, right? Maybe even the moniker of a character in a sci-fi or fantasy story, or a particularly inventive stripper. In actuality, the dusky arion is neither an imaginary being nor a sensual dancer–it is a slug, and here in the U.S. an invasive one at that.

I know Slug totems in general are among the “undesirables”, the ones that people fear getting in their meditations and card readings and whatnot because they aren’t cool or physically imposing. But I’m rather pleased to count Dusky Arion as one of the totems I’ve been privileged to work with. It’s been a mutually beneficial experience, and I’ve been learning quite a bit from it as well as being able to improve my relationship with its physical counterparts.

Read the rest here.

A quick excerpt from the (very) rough draft of Bioregional Totemism I’ve been poking at all summer and hope to make more progress on over the winter:

"In a way, this book and some of my others are intentionally subversive. Some people come to paganism because they want magic in their lives. They want to work spells and rituals and work with spiritual beings, but they want to do so as an escape from the “mundane” physical reality. What I love seeing is when someone who starts with the trappings and mystique eventually works their way into the roots and fertile dirt beneath the shiny surface. Animal totems lead to animals, which lead to care for the animals’ habitat, which then brings together the allure of the mystical and the communion with the physical."

~*~*~*THE ANIMAL MAGIC SPECIAL GIVEAWAY!*~*~*!
So as of today I am fully self-employed again, after spending the summer balancing a day job as a counselor, and keeping up my art and writing the rest of the time. To celebrate my return to being my own boss all the time (which includes getting back to working on my next book, Bioregional Totemism: Rejoining the Community of Nature), I’m giving away a set containing all four of my books on animal magic and spirituality! (Sorry, folks, Plant and Fungus Totems won’t be available til next May, so I can’t give it away yet!)
One lucky winner will receive one copy each of the following:
* Fang and Fur, Blood and Bone: A Primal Guide to Animal Magic - published in 2006, this was my very first book. It’s sort of an animal magic potpourri, containing a chapter each on varying types of practice, from animal familiars to creating spiritual animal servitors a la Chaos magic, among others. It’s still one of my most popular titles, and some people consider it to be a good introduction to my work. And, like all of my books, it’s based on my own years of experience and experimentation with these animal beings.
* DIY Totemism: Your Personal Guide to Animal Totems - Personally I feel this is my most underappreciated book. It’s not your stereotypical animal totem dictionary; rather, it’s a guide to creating your own relationships with totems, and while it does require some basic understanding of totemism and magical work, it’s still pretty accessible. (Plus I spend an entire chapter showing you how to make a divination deck that can get you in touch with any totem, not just the Big, Impressive North American Birds and Mammals!)
* Skin Spirits: The Spiritual and Magical Use of Animal Parts - Ever wanted to know more about the practices I developed over the past 15 years to use with the hides and bones and other animal parts in my spirituality and art? This book goes into more detail with those practices, as well as providing several how-to instructions on making some basic projects. 
* New Paths to Animal Totems: Three Alternative Approaches to Creating Your Own Totemism - This is my newest book, which just came out last December. I wrote it for a broader audience than my other works, so it’s accessible both to beginners while also having some neat stuff for my more established readers. Again, rather than providing a rehash of a dictionary, I offer up three models of (neo)totemism: Archetypal, Correspondences, and Bioregional. I also include a number of other practices and tools you can use to form your own practice. 
Again, the winner will receive all four of these titles, and yes I will sign them for you! Here’s how to enter:
—Reblog this post no more than once per day! (I will also be linking to this from my Facebook page or deviantArt account, so you can share or link to it from there as well.) Just make sure that if you do a FB or dA share/link that you let me know there or here so I make sure you’re added into the drawing!
—You do not have to be following me; however, you are welcome to if you like what’s on my blog :)
—Giveaway ends at noon on Wednesday, October 16, 2013. After that I will randomly choose one entry from a combined pool of Tumblr, Facebook, and deviantArt entries to be the winner.
Thanks, and good luck :)

Just a reminder that you have a little under a week to enter this giveaway (and yes, you can reblog once a day, so if you’ve already reblogged once, you can do so again :)

One more reminder, because this ENDS TOMORROW! Reblog, before it’s too late :D
