The Healing Power of Our Furry, Feathered and Finned Community
Our extended family at The Wellspring School includes 6 dogs, 3 cats, 1 bird and 1 fish. All of us here believe that having furry, feathered and finned companions is a very important part of a holistic lifestyle. Whether it’s daily doses of unconditional love, fuzzy cuddles, meditative fishbowl gazing or company on long walks, all of our pets provide us with a greater sense of well-being. Not only do they enrich our lives, but we can apply what we teach in both Amma Bodywork Therapy and Wholistic Nutrition to their care and wellness.
When you visit us at The Wellspring School, you might expect to see some of our canine friends hanging out with us. Shiva lounges in the office when Michael is in class. Izzy and Pinto come in on occasion when Rachael needs to get work done during off hours. Our most frequent visitor is our unofficial greeter, Buddha (Feeney). Buddha is a 2.5 year old Malamute-Huskey-Shepherd mix that belongs to Rylen, and we’ve come to consider him our Wellspring School mascot. Yes, that’s him in the picture. He’s a very friendly guy who loves to talk and he enjoys sitting at the top of our stairs to say hello (woof, woof) to all of our visitors. He’s great to have around because there is no better break from the computer screen, teaching a class or sitting for a few hours than having a “Buddha minute” (or several).
We thought we’d just take a minute to introduce you to Buddha and give a very honorable mention to our non-human friends here. They are a very integral part of our community and our own holistic lifestyles!
