Description: Why is the love between humans and animals so strong? What do they teach us? Why does it hurt so much when they leave us? Kaleel Sakakeeny, Bostons only animal chaplain and prominent pet loss counselor, answers these questions and addresses other issues surrounding our emotional bond with animals. In this program, he also addresses the process of grief and why advocating for animals is healthy for people and the planet. Kaleel urges guests to bring with them stories and questions to this informal, intimate conversation. A brief, animal-oriented meditation and memory moment takes place just before the discussion.

Kaleel Sakakeeny is an animal chaplain and credentialed pet/animal grief counselor. Formerly, he was a print and broadcast journalist who appeared on NPR and Christian Science Monitor, and served as editor-in-chief of the Robb Report, an award-winning news program. He holds MA and MS degrees, and certifications in Reiki, EFT, Animal Communication and Mind/Body Healing.
