Description

"If anyone's in a position to preach-in the best sense of that word- about animals, it's this impassioned, vegetarian healer and activist whose globe-spanning career spent amid endangered and domesticated species spurs viewpoints that many open-minded animal lovers will find not just plausible but validating and down right electrifying."
--
Anneli Rufus, Spirituality & Health

"Animal Wisdom is a thoughtful and inspired exploration of the ways in which animals, if we will but watch them and listen to them, can help us to live our lives more fully. Linda Bender has a firm grounding in science, yet she has learned, as I have, of the benefit we can get from close relationships with animals. Not only can they calm and relax us physically and emotionally, they can also enrich us spiritually. Thank you Linda for writing this book."
--Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, founder, the Jane Goodall Institute, and UN Messenger of Peace

"Animal Wisdom deepens our understanding of the sacred relationship between humans and animals."--Deepak Chopra, MD, author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

"Linda Bender opens up a spiritual dimension of animals that many people feel intuitively but find hard to express. She is thoughtful, well-informed, and draws on a lifetime of experience, expressing her insights clearly and accessibly. This beautifully written book will inspire animal lovers and enrich their experience of animals' lives--and their own."
--Rupert Sheldrake, PhD, author of Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home

"This is an excellent book--it is substantive, a good read and a delightful one. Join a bigger world--include the animals in all our decision-making. Read this book. The animals are grateful for this book; you will be too."
--Matthew Fox, coauthor of Occupy Spirituality

"A compelling body of evidence suggests that human minds can connect with one another across space and time, but also with other sentient creatures as well. Dr. Linda Bender takes us inside these primordial connections and shows how they work toward our welfare and survival."
--Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why it Matters

"There is one natural law for all of us to live by, and that is caring and sharing and being responsible for the wellbeing of all other living things. In Animal Wisdom, Linda Bender gives us all a chance to go back to the way that will maintain everything we have. She helps us remember what the animals have not forgotten, that we are all connected, and that no one being is less than or greater than another. Bender explains what my people have always known, that having a good relationship with all life is the key to physical, mental, social, and spiritual harmony. This is the way it was meant to be. This is the key to our survival."
--Tjilpi Bob Randall, Yankunytjatjara elder, author of Songman: The Story of an Aboriginal Elder of Uluru

"Stories of pets that find their way to their humans hundreds of miles distant, or of therapy animals that calm psychiatric patients, illustrate [Bender's] theme that animals have souls (the Latin anima meaning "soul," is the root of the word animal) and that our souls and theirs can communicate."
--Booklist

"'Every animal knows more than you do.' This Native American proverb resonates soundly throughout Animal Wisdom, veterinarian and animal activist Linda Bender's marvelous look at what animals teach us and how they share wisdom with the world."
--Spirt of Change Magazine

"Bender believes the destiny of humankind is inextricably linked with all species and depends on our ability to 'renegotiate our relationship with Mother Nature.' Animal Wisdom is a fine tool for this renegotiation."
--Book Club Classics

"Bender offers a wealth of amazing stories and research-based evidence indicating that animals have deeply perceptive--even extrasensory--abilities... This is a book for animal lovers and anyone who seeks a deeper spiritual connection to these beautiful creatures."
--Arizona Networking News
