Animism is the belief that everything has a spirit and a consciousness, a soul, from the tiniest microorganism on earth to the great planets in the heavens to the whole of the universe itself.
“There is no environment ‘out there’ separate from us. The environment is embedded in us. We are as much a part of our surroundings as as the trees and birds and fish, the sky, water and rocks.” ~ David Suzuki
My early childhood was in a small village, Swaffham Prior, England. It is there that I forged the notion of sacred sites, animism and the shores of Avalon. It is only in recent years that I have sailed there directly, to the twinkling of small silver bells that guide me.
