A stunning review of my book, The Soul of All Living Creatures, in the current issue of In Mind Magazine
Dear Dr Virga
It was a tremendous pleasure in reading your article in the recent Reader’s Digest. I am so glad that I lived another day and had an opportunity to read something so profound. My hubby sometimes use to poke fun at me because I have a tendency to stop at pet shops and talk to the animals in the cages. I also had goldfish and Arowana fish which I found understood me. I sometimes speak to the plants. But to ensure you, I do not display this behaviour in public, you can guess what the public will think, “looney person”.
I appreciate your time in continuing this type of work and imparting the wealth of information to others. I like to believe that I understand behaviour too, the human kind, I used to incorporate lots of behavioural training methods and simulations to engage the participants and share their experiences. The idea was to show empathy, develop personal changes and adapt to an ever changing environment. I think animals do it better than man, they do not complain about “their lot” like people do.
Regards and good luck in your endeavours.
