I'm Still Here coverOur animal companions share great love with their human families. When pets depart this physical sphere, they can teach their human friends important lessons about the eternalness of being.

David Hutchings, author of I’m Still Here: Recognizing the Eternalness of Our Companion Animals, joins host Gail Rubin on A Good Goodbye Radio. He discusses lessons humans can learn about love, wellbeing and spirituality from our dogs, cats and other pets. Topics include:

  • How companion animals model ways for humans to release grief
  • What Eternity Blindness is and how it impacts human mourning
  • Ways to help companion animals transition at the end of their physical lifetimes
  • Lessons about love and life our pets convey to humans
  • The spirituality of the human/companion animal bond
