Guide to animal hospice and natural holistic wellbeing for all of an animal’s lifestages
Purpose: BrightHaven (www.brighthaven.org) Co-Founders Gail and Richard Pope share how their approach to animal health and wellbeing gradually shifted from a completely conventional approach to a more natural and holistic one. They followed the wisdom of the animals as they made this fascinating journey!
This presentation is ideal for those who wish to learn more about the evolution of BrightHaven’s Menu for Healing, the foundation of their animal healthcare for all life stages, and Gail and Richard’s shift in mindset towards natural death for their animals.
It is also perfect for those who have their roots firmly planted in conventional healthcare and, although remaining skeptical of natural or holistic treatments or modalities, have heard so many reports of healing successes that their curiosity has been aroused.
Course Info: BrightHaven is unique because of the way they work and the results they get. It’s all about living well through the last breath! In this course, Gail and Richard paint for you a simple picture of their healing philosophy by demonstrating how they progressively learned about holistic healthcare, embraced new concepts and witnessed healing miracles. For instance, they explain what happened when, with great trepidation, they completely changed their trusted commercial diet to one based on raw meat.
Gail and Richard also share how a beautiful black cat profoundly shifted their thinking about natural death.
Not only will you see one-of-a-kind photos, you learn how to care for your animal from the holistic philosophy as practiced at BrightHaven. This information will also help you to define your own approach to animal wellness and hospice care.

They lovingly share their experiences, resources and tips gleaned from working with animals of all ages, particularly senior (16+ years of age), disabled and chronically ill animals. Gail and Richard received the prestigious Jefferson Award in 2013 in recognition of their dedicated service to this very vulnerable animal population.
