About the Presentation

Animals are an integral part of the way things are, and the therapeutic and spiritually enriching connection we have with other life forms is being utilized to enrich the lives of individuals, congregations, and clients in therapy. Learn how one congregation celebrates our interconnectedness with all of life in an annual “blessing of the animals,” and how animals, particularly dogs, but also other species as well, can be therapeutic companions in the healing and wholeness journey.
