EP045 The Power of Story show art EP045 The Power of Story

The Introverted Advocate

We, humans, are hardwired for story. Our brains crave connection. I learned that if a story does not have an ending -- or if the ending is unclear -- our brains, looking for logic, create an ending to the story. Humans need stories and connections as much as we need oxygen. Let's use this time to reach out to family and friends -- let's all share our narratives with each other. It's powerful!

Animals. Let’s visit with the animals!

Come with me and I’ll introduce you to the big family of rescued-farmed animals of Catskill Animal Sanctuary.

Located in the Hudson Valley of New York, rolling hills and 148 acres are the backdrop for over 300 rescued animals who live here surrounded by love, safety, and friendship.  I saw it for myself in 2018. This place is real. This is a healing place.

Let’s start with the Underfoot Family. This is unique to Catskill Animal Sanctuary: a small group of animals is given free-range privileges during the day.

Kathy Stevens, founder/executive director, realized early on that some personalities demand larger freedom. Many of the Underfoot family were rescued from small, filthy, and overcrowded spaces. Many became claustrophobic during their previous years of abuse and abandonment. They were not comfortable unless they could roam.
