You will be introduced to the process of knowing your animal teachers on a sacred level. Learn how to work with your animal totems in more effective ways. This course is designed for people who already know their power animals, animal totems, allies, or teachers. This is the second course in the "Animal Teachers" series (Finding Your Animal Teachers).
