The bestselling authors of “How to Be Your Dog’s Best Friend” show how their strong connections with dogs and the natural world stem from the principles of monastic life.

The elements of a monk’s life — self-discipline, solitude, prayer, acts of love and forgiveness — are pathways that anyone can follow to achieve true happiness and spiritual fulfillment.
