Learning from the Spiritual Lives of Animals
By Linda Bender DVM
New Book Reveals the Unexplained Powers of Animals to Heal Us and Our World!
There is something about the motoring of a cat's purr or the wagging of a dog's tail that brings us a certain comfort and delight. Cat memes and pleas for animals to be rescued and adopted have taken over our social media culture, as well as, the stories about animal cruelty around the world that break our collective hearts.
In Animal Wisdom: Learning from the Spiritual Lives of Animals (North Atlantic books/Sacred Activism Series/ June 2014) Veterinarian Linda Bender illustrates with anecdotes she has collected in a lifetime of loving and working with animals, the heart of what they have taught her and the marvelous lessons and profound wisdom they can teach us, if we choose to pay attention.
According to Dr. Bender, "In rescuing the animals, we also rescue ourselves. We are interconnected—what we do to animals we do to ourselves. This reciprocity between animals and humans is woven into the very fabric of Creation."
A passionate animal advocate, Dr. Bender worked for over 14 years, often from the frontlines and in the trenches, around the world to rescue wildlife while advocating for endangered species and their habitats. She also started one of the first Pet Therapy programs in Cincinnati as part of their state mental health program. She has now dedicated her life to educating and compassionately advocating on behalf of animals around the globe. She has become a leading voice for those who are voiceless.
