                                            INTRODUCTION TO



Sure, you can talk to your dog, cat, horse, bird ……..everyone knows that, but can YOU actually “HEAR” what your animal companion is trying to say to you?  I’m not talking about marking behavior, different tones of voice, or behavioral changes – you all are fully aware of body language – I’m speaking of the deep – heart to heart, mind to mind communication between two sentient beings. Our animals want and try to talk to us all the time…..we just don’t listen.

This workshop will help you to uncover your abilities and plug yourselves in to your connection with all of life.


This Basic Workshop uses an adaptation of the HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH ANIMALS – THE BASIC COURSE – (developed by Penelope Smith) recording and other works and experiences from other notable Animal Communicators.


The intent of this interactive class is to foster a better relationship between you and your animal friend through better communication.


To derive the maximum benefit from this workshop it is RECOMMENDED that you read Animal Talk  by Penelope Smith before you begin your journey into Animal Communication.
