Publisher's Summary

How is it that pets are able to travel thousands of miles through unknown territory to reunite with their beloved humans? How can dogs detect cancer with up to a 98 percent accuracy rate and foresee epileptic or diabetic seizures in their owners? How do animals seem to know an earthquake is coming long before the world's best seismologists?

In Animal Wisdom, veterinarian and animal advocate Linda Bender offers a wealth of amazing stories and research-based evidence indicating animals have deeply perceptive - even extrasensory - abilities. She shows us that animals are extremely perceptive, intuitive, and psychic and provides step-by-step practices for honing your natural ability to communicate with them, so you too can learn to understand their urgent messages about peace, happiness, and the future of the planet. Animal Wisdom is for animal lovers and anyone who seeks a deeper, more spiritual connection to these beautiful creatures.

What the critics say

"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 downright 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; 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)

Life changing

For anyone who has ever felt they had a deep connection with animals - whether just their pet or the animal kingdom - Linda Bender explains why that is. It’s not just you. We are all born w the capability to tap into the connection that exists between living beings, but sadly many lose it as we get older. Using scientific evidence (she is a vet), she explains why animals are so incredible/smart - her anecdotes are stunning - but she also explains why they are so mystical, which, if you are reading this book, you won’t need any convincing of. Truly powerful. Really great to read, and reassuring that there are others out there who understand the incredible power of animals.

Wildly Wise...Maybe?

A great view of nature's role in Spiritual Activism and how we are connect to the animals and as one. We are all one source energy.

The narrative was repetitive and boring. The author wasn't really clear about her communication abilities with animals. Intuitive? Animal Psychic? I still am unclear despite her mentioning the topics. It was ok.
