Product Description

Product Description

Open up to a new realm of spiritual practice. Plant and Fungus Totems provides techniques for creating respectful partnerships with totems, archetypal spirits that embody the qualities of their respective species. Working with just plants and fungus—or in conjunction with their animal counterparts—you will discover the wisdom these spirit beings impart to those of us who listen.

Exploring three different models of totemism, Lupa invites you to be of service to the planet’s ecology by developing relationships with these often-overlooked sources of insight. Providing meditations and suggestions for journaling and experimentation, Plant and Fungus Totems shows how to receive guidance and helps you connect more deeply with the totemic ecosystem. Also included are hands-on exercises for incorporating physical plants and fungi into your totemic work, as well as tips for working with herbs, gardens, urban wild plants, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing piece that is worth your time if you want practicality in your practice 4 Jun. 2014
By Theodoric - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are certainly not a lot of books out there pertaining to plants and fungi as spiritual beings. They are rare and hard to come by, many of them just possess lore and knowledge of medicinal purposes and even magical meanings that have been associated with a plant or fungus for some time. Not this book!

This book is filled with information regarding respect for plants and fungi. Like New Paths to Animal Totems, Lupa provides similar, but a very different outlook on how to commune and work with plant and fungus spirits. Lupa prefers to get up close and personal with most of these spirits as individual beings, and not just an object to be picked and used in rituals or cooking.

While three of the chapters have the same title as her other book New Paths to Animal Totems, the knowledge within is not a rehash of the other book. Instead, she covers only a small portion of what she wrote in that book and then gives the reader fresh new material on the subject matter that you won’t find in her previous book.

She warns against using certain plants and fungi due to their toxins and offers practical ways to approach their spirits. She also talks about ways in which you can give back to the plants and fungi, the spiritual as well as the physical. She suggests not using pesticides and other chemicals which ruin the soil and see them as the living beings that they are. It’s full of stories from others, as well as herself.

I feel like all the ideas in this book have allowed me to form my own practice. As always, I feel like her work brings new ideas for me to try. Even though she shares her own, her ideas allow me to come up with my own individual system with working with plants or fungi. It has opened my eyes to the possibilities once again!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the reasons I love this author 29 Dec. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
One of the reasons I love this author, is that she isn’t mimicking what others have already rehashed and recycled over and over again. Lupa’s work is both original and meaningful. This book is no exception.
Her respect for the physical, as well as the spiritual aspects of our world is a refreshing and welcome change. Her knowledge and ability to help others understand is remarkable and easy to read. I would recommend this book to those who are serious about their paths and understanding the spiritual aspects of the participants of the work, whether it be edible, ritual, or the mundane.
Incorporating her information into my system is seamless, because instead of teaching me a new belief system, she teaches information that is useful across spiritual paths.
Thank you for another addition to my library that is a resource on an ongoing basis, as well as a well written and well researched source of powerful information.
