    The Shaman’s Guide to Power Animals by Lori Morrison Excerpted from The Shaman’s Guide to Power Animals. Published by Four Jaguars Press. Copyright © by Lori Morrison. https://lorimorrison.com It was a rainy day in the Pacific Northwest. I lifted my five-year-old body into my father’s delivery van. Our cargo was buttermilk pancake mix, maple syrup, bacon, potatoes, carrots, and canned goods. We were heading to my family’s logging camp on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State in the early 1960s. The road narrowed after we got to the Quinault Indian Reservation. Because over one hundred inches of rain fall there each year, the fir trees towered above us like a…

When I stepped into the world of Jason and Rose, two totally different personalities and walks of life, I felt a kinship with Rose. She is…

I started out as the Simplified Witch, the original goddess on stone artist, which has evolved into RocknGoddess which I feel is a more appropriate name for my art. Each piece contains a heart which represents Universal Love Energy. Creating spiritual art is also my way of sharing my late husband’s eternal…
