If you’ve ever had your life touched by a pet, a friends pet, or even heard of someone’s life being completely transformed by the love of, or for an animal, then do we have a special treat for you.
Today we’re talking with Dr. Bernie Siegel, the best-selling author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles. He’s one of the most well known doctors there, who talks about humanizing medicine, compassionate care, and the choice to live fully and die at peace. In 2011, Bernie was honored by the Watkins Review of London, England, as one of the Top 20 Spiritually Influential Living People on the Planet
Of course, he’s also the author of the newly release Love, Animals and Miracles a book that speaks to my soul.
Today we’ll talk about the healing power of love and animals, how they’re much more than just furry or scaly creatures, and how they have an almost magical power to transform our lives and fit in, in our crazy world. If you’re looking for inspiration, or a smile, then today’s celebration of animals and the love and miracles they always bring is for you!
I can’t wait to hear the stories he’ll tell!
