Puppies Enjoy Guided Imagery, Too

13 Jan


I just got an email from a good friend, Priscilla Warner (author of Learning to Breathe, a beautifully written, carefully researched but fun-to-read bestseller on how she overcame her panic attacks and fear of flying…) This, by the way, was something she really needed to do, being as how she was scheduled to go on a 52-city, international book tour to promote an earlier bestseller, The Faith Club.  Learning to Breathe is simply a terrific book, with great practical value for anyone who suffers from debilitating fear of any kind.  So if you haven’t already read it, I encourage you to check it out. 

But I digress. She sent me this picture of her puppy, Charlie, enjoying some guided imagery, one of the early tools Priscilla used to overcome her panic attacks. 

Now, this is not the first occasion we’ve had reports of dogs (or cats) enjoying guided imagery.  But it’s the best photographic evidence we’ve every gotten!  So thanks, Priscilla!

She writes:  

I swear I didn't stage this. I left the room to get a scarf and she curled up with you on iTunes.

Take care and be well, everyone.

All best,
