Are We Loving Animals To Death?

Earlier this year, in an attempt to unleash my inner “metaphysical hippie”, I decided to pick up a book on modern shamanism. For those of you who may not know, a “shaman” is loosely defined as someone who has access to the spiritual world. Often shamans connect with spirits and energies through the natural world including various animals.

The book I chose followed the journey of a rather typical suburban, working mom and her years long pathway to becoming a full-blown professional shaman. It was well written and interesting and, until the very last chapter, I was enjoying it.
