Written as a layered pictorial script, three images—Owl, Raven, and Hummingbird—beckoned the authors. Together, they explored neglected epistemologies in many disciplines within education, the arts and humanities to deepen their understanding of what it means to live in caring relation with an animated world. By tracking the Birds’ lineages and kinships through active imagination, amplification, and circumambulation, concealed patterns and associations reveal lessons for living more consciously with repressed and expressed feminine/androgyne energies. To be more conscious of both aids in the unfolding processes central to becoming, undoing, creativity, and pedagogy. Herein an ethical challenge arises: how might we honour the ancestors and communal life while attending the spirits that call us onward?
