Kanuga Gives Me the Kreeps Part 2

In an earlier post, I highlighted a few of the non-Christian conference offerings at this supposedly Christian camp.

During a recent trip to Kanuga, a friend checked out the bookstore, and guess what they found?


Animal-Speak: The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great & Small by Ted Andrews.

The Amazon.com book description reads:
"Open your heart and mind to the wisdom of the animal world.

Animal Speak provides techniques for recognizing and interpreting the signs and omens of nature. Meet and work with animals as totems and spirit guides by learning the language of their behaviors within the physical world.

Animal Speak shows you how to: identify, meet, and attune to your spirit animals; discover the power and spiritual significance of more than 100 different animals, birds, insects, and reptiles; call upon the protective powers of your animal totem; and create and use five magical animal rites, including shapeshifting and sacred dance.

This beloved, bestselling guide has become a classic reference for anyone wishing to forge a spiritual connection with the majesty and mystery of the animal world."
And Amazon has the author's bio:
"Ted Andrews is a full-time author, student, and teacher in the metaphysical and spiritual fields. He conducts seminars, symposiums, workshops, and lectures throughout the country on many facets of ancient mysticism, focusing on translating esoteric material to make it comprehensible and practical for everyone. This includes resynthesizing ancient scriptures, literature, and teachings for use by the modern spiritual student.
Ted is certified in basic hypnosis and acupressure, and is involved in the study and use of herbs as an alternative path in health care. He is active in the holistic healing field, focusing strongly on esoteric forms of healing with sound, music, and voice. Trained in piano, Ted also employs the use of the Celtic harp, bamboo flute, shaman rattles, Tibetan bells, Tibetan Singing Bowl, and quartz crystal bowls to create individual healing therapies and induce higher states of consciousness. Ted is a clairvoyant and also works with past-life analysis, aura interpretation, dreams, numerology, and Tarot.
Andrews is the author of The Healer's Manual; Animal-Speak, How to See & Read the Aura; Dream Alchemy; Crystal Balls & Crystal Bowls; How to Develop & Use Psychic Touch; How to Heal with Color; Sacred Sounds; Magickal Dance; and many other titles."

  2. Wow. Where does one start?

    Thank you for highlighting this New Age, quasi-Episcopalian development.

    Words fail me (but, I'm also trying to keep it short to see if my message goes through ;) ).

  3. Thanks for this -- second attempt at message, so I'll keep it short.

    This is not a good sign. How can any discerning Episcopalian think this is appropriate?

    1. Patience my little whiskered one. I have to approve these before they get posted. That keeps the trolls under the bridge.

    Sorry, friend -- the notification about approval never showed up until I posted as Anonymous!

    Previously, I keyed in the anti-spam word and number and was shown an empty combox.

  7. It must have something to do with the fact that we are separated by a common language.

  8. Your spirit animals wouldn't make so many posting errors. Trust them.
