Anam Cara Healing


Healing from rabbits is like an ancient Celtic saying called “Anam Cara” meaning soul friend and teacher. Anam Cara is someone or something that touches your heart. The unconditional love from animals allows us to have a heart to heart connection.  In this safe place, we feel joy, love and peace.  It is our wish for you to experience this with rabbits – each person is touched in their own unique and surprising ways!

Anam Cara Healing Visits


With Therapeutic Animals (Rabbits) and Guided Imagery


Animals (rabbits) very often take on the role of a soul friend.  In the Celtic Christianity tradition, this was called an Anam Cara. As Mrs. Cottontail has traveled all over the Triad, she has seen time and time again the healing properties the rabbits bring to many people.  Combining these therapeutic animal visits with beautiful guided imagery, Mrs. Cottontail weaves her extensive knowledge of  yoga practices for an ultimate sense of calm, healing and peace around any situation.  The rabbits teach us all how to be still, calm and listen to the whispers of our heart, then we will find where God dwells.
