When I bought this book at Borders I thought it was going to teach me about faerie magic and druids and celtic magic. Boy, was I wrong! Basically the whole book is guided imagery meanign meditations. I suggest you should look online for meditations rather than pay for this book. I made a HUGE mistake buying this book and you will to if you buy it.
Still this book was not all bad thou some of other review talk about totems ok so she use them but some of them are found around the world.All book have there flaws this one one of better ones but i wish more of celtic totems were posted in book still it need some work but was a start and not many than have exp will share and online ya have to be careful people can post anything what help is contacting you pagan comminuty in your area and they can guide you but go with what ya feel drawn to, and also do some reseaching for totem use Animal speak by ted andrews which is not limited to any tradtion. rest is up to you learn,reseach and put some effort no one book will give ya the answers on your path part of mysteries is finding it yourself good luck i still think this book has some good infomation but i would keep looking for other books there are alot out there. I still would buy the book Not bad
Good luck on your path..
