It is my pleasure to announce this week’s guest on Animal Voices, Cheri Huber. Cheri has been studying and teaching Zen Buddhism for 30 years. She is well-known for her many books, including There Is Nothing Wrong with YouThe Fear BookThe Depression Book, and When You’re Falling, Dive: The Power of Acceptance. Her article, One Less Act of Violence that was published as part of the book, That Which You are Seeking is Causing you to Seek, deals specifically with compassion toward animals.

I am very honored to speak with Cheri. Her writing continues to motivate and inspire me. She remains one of my most beloved teachers. It’s amazing how many books I’ve bought of hers to pass on to friends! If you’re interested in learning more about Buddhism, and its relevance to animals, this will be a show you don’t want to miss. Cheri’s perspective lends insight into ways to practise compassion to animals as well as ourselves as we struggle for animal and human liberation.
