My Dog, My Buddha

A Spiritual and Empowering Approach to Dog Training (Animal Training Book, Puppy Training Book, for Fans of Rescued)

By Kimberly Artley

#1 New Release in Animal Behavior & Communication ─ 100 Ways to Be a Better Dog Parent

What your dog wants you to know: Our furry friends reflect the love and affection we pour into them. But any pet parent who is struggling with puppy training or ongoing behavioral issues knows that it’s easy to get frustrated. My Dog, My Buddha offers one hundred life lessons that will help you build a better relationship with your pet and get the behavior you want.

We get what we project: Kimberly Artley, an expert in canine psychology will teach you how to truly understand dog behavior. She knows that our dogs look to us for cues, guidance, directives, and how to feel about each and every situation they enter into. Dog care is a dialogue. My Dog, My Buddha will show you how to manage that conversation with your pet from a calm and centered place.

Unlike other dog training books: My Dog, My Buddha is meant to educate, empower, and equip the human end of the leash. In this book, you’ll learn how to:

  • Bridge the disconnect between human and canine
  • Find personal growth through the years with your dog
  • Build a relationship on trust, love, and respect

If you liked Training the Best Dog EverFor the Love of a DogDog Training for Dummies, or Rescued, you’ll love the empathetic approach to pet care and dog training in My Dog, My Buddha.

How inspired qualities and affirmations helped one psychotherapist honor her loved one, cope with grief, and find meaning.

Give Grief Meaning. How do you make sense of loss and tragedy? After the sudden and devastating loss of her infant daughter, Lily Dulan, a marriage and family therapist (MFT), psychotherapist and certified yoga teacher, meditated, prayed, and ruminated on the only thing she had left–her baby girl’s name. In Lily’s courage to address and move through her pain, she developed The Name Work, a cross pollination of proven psychological modalities, 12-step wellness tools, spiritual healing applications, meditation and ancient yoga. In her heartfelt memoir, Lily shares her healing journey and her method for unleashing the power in names and giving them special meaning to help move through the grief process in a thoughtful and transformative way.

What’s in a name? Meanings! The Name Work method teaches you how to assign special meaning and qualities to the letters in names–a deceased loved one’s or your own–and how to create positive affirmations for each letter’s attribute. The Name Work is a tangible and personal self-healing method for whatever obstacles arise. A unique, new wellness tool for healing and self-discovery, The Name Work also includes:

  • Affirmations, self-guided questions, meditations, and practices

Stop Fear From Stopping You

By

Harness Your Fear

Two kinds of fear. Sometimes, emotions like fear can be helpful. A few years ago, Dr. Helen Odessky, clinical psychologist and author of the best-selling motivational book Stop Anxiety from Stopping You, found herself part of a minor fender-bender on a major interstate. Looking back at her daughter, she feared that if another car hit them, her daughter's life would be in danger. A few minutes after retreating to another car in a safer location, an 18-wheeler barrelled into her car and demolished it. Her fear saved both her daughter's life and her own.

Fight the bad fear. Stop Fear from Stopping You is about a different type of fear—the fear that is so prevalent that it often lies dormant in the way of our dreams, career paths and relationships. This fear creates stories that cushion us from potential pain and failure—at the cost of our self-esteem, success, growth, and personal happiness.

Become fear-wise. Because fear is complex, we cannot afford to merely be fearless. Just "letting go" is not the answer. The real solution lies in learning to become fear-wise. In this inspirational book, Dr. Helen will show you how to harness the wisdom behind your fears and break through the barriers that block your success.

Stop Fear from Stopping You is the perfect gift for women and men struggling with fear. It is designed to help you:

  • Identify the fears that stand between you and your goals
  • Develop tools to overcome your fears
  • Develop a value-based plan to pursue your goals
  • Change your relationship with fear and learn to become fear-wise

If self-help books for women and men like The Confidence GapDaring Greatly, or Fearless inspired you, then Stop Fear from Stopping You is a must-read.

When Dr. Petry loses her daughter Alexandra, she looks for ways to connect with loved ones in the afterlife.
