Review

[She] does an amazing job at teaching materials in such a fun, enlightening, wise manner as to entice the reader into reading "just one more page" ... I myself read this book in a night as I could not put it down.  Apart from any of the book's practical facts of beastie wisdom, the art alone is crazy....This book would make the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone in your life from your Grandfather who goes for long walks in the woods to your 9-year-old daughter who cherishes her stuffed animal collection...Animals have so much to teach us through the many messages they whisper. ~ Kari Hazzard

I've been on a journey, called into deeper and deeper connection with nature and all her creatures, and this book is a delightful companion. Stephanie Barton Griffin
 
"I found worms today - beautiful, pink, fat ones - in the most surprising place. Before, I would've said, "Ick!" but your book and your guidance have deciphered the meaning of these beautiful Beasties, which I'm now so grateful for."

About the Author
 
Sarah Bamford Seidelmann, MD, is a Board-Certified physician who left her pathology practice in order to live out her destiny as a salty goader of humans.

More About the Author


Sarah Bamford Seidelmann is a fourth-generation, board certified physician turned shamanic healer and life coach. She lives with her husband and four children in Duluth, MN near the shores of Lake Superior. Her first book, What The Walrus Knows, was #1 in its category upon launch and it's getting rave reviews on Amazon as is the app of the same name at iTunes. Her second book, Born to FREAK: A Salty Primer for Irrepressible Humans , is resonating highly with irrepressible readers.

What the Walrus Knows, by author Sarah Seidelmann, invites readers to join in the fun of exploring why certain animals show up in our lives, and what messages these animals may be trying to share with us in their teachings. Written in a quirky and delightful style, the book serves as an introduction to the ancient
practice of animal totems, which she refers to as 'Beasties'. Sarah shares tools which allow readers to begin examining the intuitive world of animal messages, and how appearances by Beasties can offer important information.
As a fourth generation physician, Seidelmann was living a nature-starved, hectic lifestyle when an unlikely walrus entered her life, changing everything. Through paying attention to the ancient practice of animal spirits and the traits associated with the walrus, Sarah found the strength and courage to take a sabbatical from her practice as a physician and spent six months in nature, reflecting upon her heart's desires. She decided to leave her medical practice to become a shamanic healer and author. Seidelmann asserts that there are messages trying to come into your life through the animals that show up in it. Regardless of where one lives, be it the city or country, by tuning into animal
totems and working with the messages they bring forth, you can transform your life. In her charming book, What the Walrus Knows, Sarah decodes animal mysticism and offers up a valuable resource guide to Beasties.
Sarah Seidelmann was trained as a coach by "O Magazine" -famed Martha Beck, and is committed to doing transformational work with clients which allows them to live joy filled lives. She is the creator of FollowYourFeelGood.com and co-creator of the podcast SquirrelRadio. She lives with her husband and four children in Duluth, MN.

I read Sarah Seidelmann's new book, "What the Walrus Knows: An Eccentric's Guide to Working with Beastie Energies." In one word: revealing. There is so much wisdom to be gleamed from Sarah's book as for the presence of animals in our lives. Seidelmann does an amazing job at teaching materials in such a fun, enlightening, wise manner as to entice the reader into reading "just one more page" before resuming to normal life and chores. I myself read this book in a night as I could not put it down. For anyone contemplating an investment into "Walrus and Beastie Wisdom", please do yourself a favor and BUY THIS BOOK NOW! Apart from any of the book's practical facts of beastie wisdom, the art alone is crazy, phenomenal eye candy for the reader. This book would make the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone in your life from your Grandfather who goes for long walks in the woods to your 9-year-old daughter who cherishes her stuffed animal collection. The bottom line -- animals have so much to teach us through the many messages they whisper. We people in Modern Society have tuned out and undermined spirited animal wisdom that cultures all over the world have cherished for centuries, this book will hopefully change that. Walrus wisdom is back, baby!! Get "What the Walrus Knows: An Eccentric's Guide to Working with Beastie Energies" today, you won't be disappointed, plus we won't have to sic the lions on you, after all. :-D

Thank you Sarah for this treasure. Being a person already in love with life on earth, it is a pleasure to go the next step and start listening to the gifts of the Beasties with new ears, new eyes, new heart. And how spot on! You have managed to capture Animal Medicine in a very accessible, relatable way, as if they came and whispered their secrets/lessons/wisdom sweetly in your ear. It seems to me you are a keen observer, in close relationship with nature and an excellent 'spokeswoman' to share the creatures messages/gifts/insights with us. Thank you for having the sagacity to hear your calling to this work, the courage to pen it, the energy and fortitude to ROCK IT and the tenacity to bestow it upon us. This is a handy dandy I will keep with me always. The pages will become lovingly worn with use. I will share with all my friends and I will be grateful for having it. This book will help me expand my working relationship with the animals in connection to myself, what a blessing. I will become a collector of your future volumes! Great job.

Format: Paperback
Sarah Bamford Seidelmann has written a lovely jewel of a guide to finding meaning, guidance and joy through simply paying attention to the animals, or beasties, that appear in our lives. With the spirit of "take what you want and leave the rest" the book walks through the many ways animals can come to be significant signs and guides, or simply bring us more opportunity to practice present moment awareness of our surroundings. The book discusses animals that may show up for us both temporarily and totem animals whose energies may be with us throughout our lifetimes. There are also many practical tools and ideas for incorporating the wisdom of the beasties into our lives, as well as a gorgeous reference section that poetically shares the messages that each animal may bring to us. This book is a guide, a reference and a work of art. Highly recommended for anyone interested in cultivating self-awareness, appreciation and/or a deeper connection with the natural world.

Format: Paperback
Sarah Bamford-Seidelmann has created a guide that inspires getting out in nature and interacting with the "beasties" to uncover your own unique nature connection. The book is written with wit, clarity, curiosity and so much joy- it is a treasure. It contains exercises, ways to access your own inner wisdom and poetic messages from the animal realm. Anyone who wants to deep their relationship to nature or to find their way back outside can utilize this beautiful volume. It has incredible art work and additonal information that becomes more meaningful each time you open it. It is a book I will recommend to my clients and will enjoy for years to come.
