Author and international speaker Celia M. Gunn spent eighteen years studying Native American lore while living in British Columbia. For six years, she and her three children were closely involved with the rebirth of a Native American tribe, the Sinixt Nation in British Columbia, who had been declared extinct by the Canadian government. This shamanic journey inspired her memoir A Twist in Coyote's Tale, which has been adapted into a film entitled The Sinixt: Bringing Home the Bones. Now based in the West Country of the UK, Celia works with her husband on revitalizing our connection with the land, the ancestors, and “creatures other than human.”

This Plain & Simple guide will help you connect with your spirit animal. Animals do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.
The tradition of spirit guides speaking through animals and birds dates back to ancient times. Today, if we’re open to watching and listening to our totem animals, we can develop beneficial relationships with them. We can also recognize that when a totem animal appears to us in a special way, it’s offering insight into what’s happening in our lives.
This helpful book will give you a greater understanding of more than sixty totem animals and their unique meanings in an A-to-Z encyclopedic listing, lead you through the steps for accessing a chosen spirit, and help you explore the role of animal spirits in cultures around the world. Author Celia Gunn learned about the tradition of totem animals directly from Native Americans, with whom she worked on cultural preservation for several years. This inspiring book suggests ways to find, honor, and work with your totems, and provides a rich list of creatures from all around the world and their unique meanings.

  • Totem animals around the world
  • Ways to find your totem animal
  • How to honor and work with your totems
