Do you have an interest in spirituality, self-help, motivation, and inspiration? Then join us for the Seekers discussion group! Books are chosen on a quarterly basis.
For the month of October we will be discussing the book “Reflections on the Spirits of the Animals of Bedlam Farm” By Jon Katz.
This book asks the question and dives into deeper detail on whether or not animals have souls. “Some of our greatest thinkers–Aristotle, Plato, Thomas Aquinas–and countless animal lovers have been obsessed with this question for thousands of years. With his signature wisdom, humor, and clarity, Katz relates the stories of the animals he lives with on Bedlam Farm and finds remarkable kinships at every turn. Whether it is beloved sheepdog Rose’s brilliant and methodical herding ability, Mother the cat’s keen mousing instincts, or Izzy’s canine compassion toward hospice patients, Katz is mesmerized to see in them individual personas and sparks of self-awareness. Soul of a Dog will resonate with anyone who loves dogs, cats, or other animals–and who wonders about the spirits that animate them and the deepening hold they have on our lives.”
This Program will meet in the second floor gallery every first Wednesday of the month, at 7:30pm. We will discuss the selected reading, share stories, and enjoy the various perspectives from the group.
