Veterinarian Linda Bender author of AnimalWisdom: Learning from the Spiritual Lives of Animals will discuss anecdotes she has collected in a lifetime of loving and working with animals, the heart of what they have taught her and the marvelous lessons and profound wisdom they can teach us, if we choose to pay attention.
A passionate animal advocate, Dr. Bender worked for over 14 years, often from the frontlines and in the trenches, around the world to rescue wildlife while advocating for endangered species and their habitats. She also started one of the first Pet Therapy programs in Cincinnati as part of their state mental health program. She has now dedicated her life to educating and compassionately advocating on behalf of animals around the globe. She is rapidly becoming a leading voice for those who are voiceless. www.lindabender.org
