Unapologetically Sensitive

We explore how sensitivity weaves itself into our lives; the richness that it adds, and the strengths we have BECAUSE of our sensitivity--and some of the challenges it poses as well. You may learn to live a bolder, brighter life.

Can Dogs Learn to Talk?

Maizy (my puppy) is learning to press buttons to tell me what she wants, and how she is feeling! I share how we got started, and I give resources for other pets that are using buttons, and how you can get started. Jen and I talk about attuning to your animals, and how this relates to our reålationships with people. We talk about how Maizy has generalized the use of words that we haven’t modeled.
