It is time to remember your Animist ancestry, explore your Intuitive gifts and heal your trauma through Earth honoring practices. The paperback version highlights black and white sketched mirrored photographs (and blessings!) by Quynn of sacred places around the western lands called United States.

I have so much gratitude for your book. I appreciate your teaching style and how the book emphasizes there isn’t just one “right” way to become kindred. I feel more competent in my ability to follow my intuition, guides, and doing the practices that are best for me and my path. Thank you so much! Can’t wait until the next opportunity to sit in circle and learn from you.
From the forward to this 3rd edition:
Welcome. My name is Quynn Red Mountain and the stories and ideas on the following pages have come through me during my life so far. The messages, tales, journeys and practices have been shared with me as inspiration, voice, vision and imagination in both day and night dreams. They have been persistent and determined that I bring it all into this world at this time.
The visions, prophecies (not shared in this book) and foretellings have been consistent, never wavering, and the message has been clear. It is time for these ideas, and I must share them with you. I tell you this because there is a voice in my head that says “that is ridiculous. Who are you to do this? Why you? You aren’t special.” Maybe so. However, over a couple decades of living with these messages I know that the guidance doesn’t wrongly guide me. Things have played out and have come to be. So, I have enough inner “proof” that I must do what is wanted of me, to share this body of work with you. Consider it a map, a key, a field guide to help you find your way, in your own way. You are important here.
I hope that you, the reader and seeker, find guidance, trail markers and affirmation in these stories for your inner journeys of healing, and your adventures in reconnecting with the living world of Full Circle Animism. Many blessings for your travels. I look forward to crossing paths with you.
I do not speak for any Animist or Shamanic Practitioners, nor anyone of any tradition. I do speak for the voices I hear and for that which I call “Full Circle” Animism (not Animism in general). I share my experiences and research to assist in the collective healing. This guide is for all who seek to dismantle colonization, reclaim their inner world and express their sacred self in our beautiful web of life.
