Wild Voices: Messages from the Soul of Africa
Anne Keating, the author of Wild Voices, lives on a farm in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Her aim in writing Wild Voices is to ‘give the Animals a voice’ and to herself speak out about habitat degradation, species loss and the diminishing of the few truly wild spaces left on the Earth.
She also wishes to give the reader a tool to use in challenging times. Her study and interest in shamanism, eco-psychology and her own deep intuition are what she draws on to create this work.
Diane Holmes/Mama Ka Grace is the artist of the Wild Voices deck of cards. Born in Zambia, she learnt to know the African bush and its animals and drew on this connection to create these cards.
Diane speaks of going through ‘an initiation of sorts’ while illustrating each one; there was never the sense that this was just artwork. She says ‘each animal’s soul quality took over and required of me to work with it as well’.
