Kim and best friend, Violet at Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary in
Poughquag, New York

*Audio typo correction!! – In this episode I say 100 billion animals have died in Australia wildfires. I meant 1 billion. Sorry for the audio typo!

Happy New Year! This episode is different from others in that there is no guest. In this raw and authentic episode, Kim Beller talks candidly about her start to the new year, the Australia wildfires and what everyone can do to help ALL animals in the world….. How we can all cultivate peace in the world through our daily practices, and her best goat friend named Violet.

Kim talks about how to combat compassion fatigue, her own daily meditation practice, and the mantra she chants 108 times each day. {LOKAH SAMASTAH SUKHINO BHAVANTU} – This Sanskrit mantra translates to “May all beings everywhere be happy and free and may the thoughts, words and actions in my own life contribute to that happiness and freedom for all.”

Offering a meditation for caregivers, volunteers, sanctuary workers, and anyone who works with animals or animal rights in any way, Kim guides listeners through a pranayama and meditation that can be done anywhere – any time. She talks about Ahimsa and how living and practicing Ahimsa will reduce pain and suffering around the world.

Kim encourages anyone listening to reach out to her when compassion fatigue sets in and offers tips and ideas to help with this struggle.

Sanctuary Tour is growing and is now officially a non-profit organization. We have started an emergency care fund that will be distributed as needed for animal sanctuaries and organizations in need. The basis of this work is to support sanctuaries by providing a platform to share stories, work, and ways we can support, as well as to provide monetary help as needed.
