pentacle, star, religion

YaaD Work: Class 3: Totems

This is one of the reflection papers I wrote as part of my Year and a Day (YaaD) of study with Fieldhaven Coven.

The question is drawn from the Greenhaven Tradition; the YaaD course is not published on the Greenhaven Tradition website, but is made available on a person-to-person basis. Material that is not so closely held is available at http://greenhaventradition.weebly.com/


Class 3, Paper 1 (after reading, before discussion): If you don’t already know your spirit guide(s), explore the notion now. Does this kind of relationship interest you, or not? What animals, plants, stones, or other things do you feel most attracted to? Which do you admire? What would you like to gain from a totem? What would you offer in exchange? Be ready to discuss your findings in class.

Class 3, Paper 2 (after class discussion). Choose a totem animal and write a one-page paper about it. Include its physical analog and its spiritual powers according to one or more traditions. Note that different cultures may ascribe very different properties to the same animal; you may find this worthy of exploration.

Note: This paper was failed for not meeting the minimal requirements of the question.
