On October 15, 2017, Dr. Bob Hieronimus, Ph.D., interviewed his wife and 21st Century Radio® co-host Dr. Zohara Hieronimus, D.H.L., about her new book, White Spirit Animals: Prophets of Change, exploring shamanism, trans-species telepathy, and the animal wisdom urging us to restore an ethos of care to human society.
Animals, like indigenous tribal people, view existence and non-existence as a continuum. Animals, like many in the human population, are more concerned about the entire Earth and its ecosystems than themselves specifically. For instance, Bear, Wolf, Lion, Elephant, Whale, and Bison are all apex animals in their ecosystems. If any of them become extinct, everything under these capstone species disassembles. Their message to us, as I write about in my upcoming book on the White Spirit Animals, is “to save as many of us as you can.” They are not species centered in their thinking as much as they are Earth-centered. But they are also aware of the incredible suffering all life is experiencing together and what the next two hundred years may require of us, if we are not more diligent and deliberate about preserving certain ecosystems now. They remember the Ice Age and they remember the floods. They remember the raining down of fire. They remember famine.
