Open Minds: Sacred Bond between Animals and Humans with Linda Bender (October 2013)
Animals are a vital part of our planet and an integral part of many homes. Though we share our lives, we lack a connection with our domestic companions. We can develop a spiritual rapport with our pets to overcome the language barriers and have a life-long friendship full of joy and understanding. Even in the last moments of their lives, this spiritual connection can bring them peace and serenity. Animal intuitive, Linda Bender explains how we can engage with animals, on a spiritual level, for the benefit of home and planet in this interview with Regina Meredith originally webcast October 1, 2013.
Linda Bender’s love of the natural world began in her childhood backyard. Her rapport with animals inspired her to earn a doctorate in veterinary medicine and her enduring interest in spirituality led her to study energy medicine. This combination culminated in the founding of the Mind the Gap Wellness Center in Cincinnati and a pet therapy program through the Ohio Mental Health Association and From the Heart nonprofit, as well as an upcoming book on the sacred relationship between humans and animals.
