The morning session includes an introduction to the essentials on how to get in touch with animals telepathically. Discover your blocks to communicating with animals and the levels of communication possible. Learn how to experience animals’ perspectives, how you may have already communicated telepathically with animals, and how to expand on that. Enjoy exercises that open your heart, increase your awareness and understanding of animals and your receptivity to telepathic communication. Deepen your communion with all of life.
After the lunch break learn how to be quiet and focus your attention when being with animals. Practice opening the channel to get across to animals and to receive what they communicate telepathically in thoughts, images, impressions, feelings, messages.
Please bring photos (printed if possible) of any animal companions you wish to work with during the class.
