We all know that feeling of peace and quietude that comes from just being in our dog's presence. Now imagine if you could harness that energy to benefit the overall health and wellbeing of both you and your dog. After enduring a series of hardships, the author saw how hard her animals were working to selflessly comfort and heal her and was worried that this could be depleting them of their own energy. In response, she created a meditation method that is based on the idea of consciously recycling positive energy between animals and humans to create deeper and more nurturing connections. Complete with pictures and meditation exercises, her new book, beautifully explains and illustrates the techniques so both person and dog can benefit. In it, you'll also read inspiring animal stories and learn about the countless health and life benefits that result from having a deep, compassionate connection with an animal. And each chapter offers a meditation exercise that is specially designed to help you embrace a different aspect of the Animal Method. It was written with the hope of helping you see more clearly the teacher, the healer, the magical being who is right there at your feet-and the one also within you. We can learn so much from animals when we take the time to be still with them and observe. The animals in my life have taught me about love, compassion, and remembrance. This is a simple but powerful meditation. It is about being open to letting go of your preoccupations and letting our animals take us on a trip into their world. They want us to come in, they really do. And it's a beautiful place to visit.
