Do Animals have souls? What happens when they die? This book offers some amazing answers...Kim embarked upon an incredible journey to uncover the truth. Along with her own experiences, she compiled the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people from around the world. She discovered overwhelming evidence that forever erased her own doubts of an afterlife for animals. Today she is a highly respected and sought after expert on this subject, and much of her time is devoted not only to animals but to those who are left behind when they pass.
About the Author
Kim Sheridan developed an extra-special connection to animals and the ability to communicate with them from an early age. She is a respected health writer, researcher and nutritional consultant and is a popular guest on radio and television in the US. An acclaimed lecturer and workshop leader, Kim provides support to those whose beloved animal companions have passed. Kim has been listed in "Who's Who in Executives and Professionals", "2,000 Notable American Women", and "Great Minds of the 21st Century".
This distinctly New Age clone of a "Chicken Soup" book will be affecting for many readers, but for those who accept the author's full-blown agenda of animals having souls and communicating to us from the afterlife through mediums (here called "animal communicators") it will be a major survey. It also helps to accept most of the remaining strains of New Age thinking and the author's commitment to animal liberation, including vegetarianism. The same caveat applies to the numerous anecdotes Sheridan has collected about departed companion animals, as well to Sheridan's own experiences with companion animals, most of whom have been rats. (Their short lives have given Sheridan a great many occasions to grieve for animals; she is pictured with one, "little Kristin Sheridan," on the back cover.) Sheridan writes with overwhelmingly sincere conviction and a passionate loathing of those who deny that animals have souls or who admonish those who have lost pets that "it was just an animal, get over it." The only really negative reactions to this book are likely to be from those who want to drive the spiritual element out of people's relations with animals, companions or otherwise. Most others will see where Sheridan is coming from, even if they are not going with her. (Jan.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
