This class offers basic insight into totemism in a traditional and modern context, and distinguishes between the presence of Nature Spirits and Nature Allies. These distinctions inform how we can build relationships with Nature Spirits and be good fellow residents of our immediate animistic community. This course is taught in the context of shamanic ecstatic soul travel, though is valuable without the emphasis of shamanic work.
Working with totems and Nature Spirits facilitates ecstatic trance work. For that reason, this class is best taken before delving into experiential classes, such as Introduction to the Middle World.
There is no set time for completion, though it's better to take your time and arrive at conclusions that further you along your path, than to rush through and not internalize the material. Allowing 4-6 weeks for completion is suggested.
This course also includes light mentoring by Kelley.
