A love dog is one who yearns for something unseen, unspoken. Rumi says that a dog’s moaning for his Master IS the connection with the Master. This book is a map for discovering and working with the depths of your own soul.

Through her personal stories and principles, Patricia shows us how to become a love dogs in tender union with our truest selves. She reminds us to enter bravely into a new inner landscape of self-compassion, kindness, relationships, inspiration and more soulful relationships.

Becoming a Love Dog offers a system to support you to live your life more fully, tenderly, honestly, skillfully, passionately, and authentically. It encourages an emotionally mature way to cope with life and ease your heartache. In the arena of body acceptance, for example, Patricia models moving from weight depression, through old judgments, to loving your body and increasing your self-esteem.
