"Kindred Spirits will touch the depths of your emotions and beliefs, and in doing so, will change the way you live. Read, learn, and open your heart to the animals with whom we share a kinship, and whose stories are shared so beautifully here."
–Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine & Miracles and Prescriptions for Living
"The bond between animals and humans can improve both physical and mental health, and in Kindred Spirits, Allen Schoen explores the nature of that bond and shows how the techniques of alternative medicine can help both pets and their owners. I learned a lot from reading it." –Andrew Weil, author of Eating Well for Optimum Health
“Kindred Spirits is an eloquent, moving exploration of a belief I have long held–that animals and humans are intimately connected, and that we do ourselves and our animal friends a disservice when we underestimate the special bond that exists between us. It is a powerful prescription for life in the twenty-first century.” –Dr. Jane Goodall, author of In the Shadow of Man and Through a Window: My Life with Chimpanzees
