Nature Spirituality from the Ground Up invites you to go beyond simply exploring symbols of nature, encouraging you to bury your hands in the earth and work with the real thing. This is a totem book that makes a difference, empowering you to make your totems a part of everyday life. Uniquely approaching totems as beings we can serve (rather than asking how they can serve us), Lupa shows how orienting yourself as a giver deepens your spiritual connection to the earth and helps you rejoin the community of nature. And while most totem books focus solely on animals, Nature Spirituality from the Ground Up helps you work with interconnected ecosystems of totems: plants, fungi, minerals, waterways, landforms, and more.
