Animals as Teachers & Healers
True Stories & ReflectionsBook - 1997
In their innocence and wisdom...animals show us a way back to a home they have never left. So says Susan Chernak McElroy, who owes her triumph over cancer to the love of her dog, Keesha--and to the courage she found in the act of saving a dying cat. In ANIMALS AS TEACHERS AND HEALERS, McElroy tells her story and gathers real-life stories from others whose souls have been touched by the loving energies of animals. Here are animals as guardians (a German shepherd who cocoons its body around a toddler during a house fire--the baby lives, the dog does not), companions, totems, and soul menders.For anyone who has forgotten how to see angels, ANIMALS AS TEACHERS AND HEALERS is an inspiration and a guide for the journey to reconnect with the animal kingdom, and a reminder of the lessons and healing that can flow from the special relationship between humans and animals.
