Shaman Pathways - Aubry's Dog

Shaman Pathways - Aubry's Dog: 
Power Animals In Traditional Witchcraft

The term 'power animal' was introduced into contemporary language in 1980 by anthropologist Michael Harner in his classic work The Way of the Shaman, and refers to a broad-based animistic and shamanic concept that has entered the English language from the fields of anthropology, ethnography and sociology. The animal is conceived as a tutelary spirit that helps or protects individuals, lineages, and nations. Dogs and man became companions a long time ago, and the dog adopted as a power animal represents speed, agility, courage, protection, justice, nobility and loyalty. Aubry's Dog: Power Animals in Traditional Witchcraft guides your footsteps on this most ancient of paths ...

Mélusine Draco has been a magical and spiritual instructor, as well as author of numerous popular books on traditional witchcraft and ritual magic for over 20 years. 

Her Traditional Witchcraft series, The Dictionary of Mystery & Magic and By Spellbook & Candle are also published by Moon Books

My review:
. 

Another wonderful Shaman Pathways book by Melusine Draco.   Packed full of information about man’s best friend it covers the history of the dog, all sorts of associated herbs, using dog medicine in spell workings and creating amulets and talismans.  Lots of charms and folklore is included too along with very interesting healing information.  I also loved the section on shape shifting.  Very interesting for anyone interested in utilising the power of dog energy.
