I learned a valuable lesson the day a skunk crossed my path. It was about animal totems and the magical medicine they offer. Seeing animals as spirit guides is at the heart of a public ritual I created for Samhain, the Celtic festival that marks the death of summer. The mysteries of Samhain are at the heart of the holiday we call Halloween.
The ritual offers ways you can connect with an animal totem that chooses you. Yes, it chooses you, not the other way around. You'll get a taste of the magical medicine of the bear, the bee, the hawk, the salmon.
You'll see how those gathered for the ritual called on the animals to help the survivors of the synagogue shooting in Squirrel Hill.
