    How our pets can teach us about love.

    in Motivation

    Counselor Mandy Eppley speaks with veterinarian and animal advocate Dr. Linda Bender about the importance of grieving our pets and how they continue to bless our lives even after they pass. Dr. Bender shares the story of losing her precious cat, Wimsey, who she considered to be her best friend for 18 years. Both Mandy and Linda emphasize how important it is to allow yourself to grieve pets, as we do for humans, and to not feel ashamed about it. Linda shares several stories from her collection (one of the largest databases of stories about animals in the world) about how beloved animals have contacted their owners after they pass. She helps people see how these experiences are “normal” and not “paranormal.” She says “grief can motivate us to show up as love in the world.”

    Dr. Linda Bender’s love of the natural world began in her childhood backyard. Her innate rapport with animals inspired her to earn a doctorate in veterinary medicine. During the 14 years she spent living in England, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, Linda’s veterinary work included the rescue, rehabilitation, and protection of wildlife, often in remote areas.  In 2014 Linda wrote a book called Animal Wisdom: Learning from the Spiritual Lives of Animals (North Atlantic). This book illuminates the undeniable ability for animals to restore our ecological, emotional and spiritual balance.

    Her non-profit, From the Heart, has a mission of recognizing that all creatures have lives of meaning and purpose, and provides support for animals in need and strives to help people understand the natural connection between humans and animals, and the mutual need to protect the Earth we share.
