Have you ever longed to psychically communicate with animals? Is there a way to understand what dogs, cats, horses, and even wild animals are thinking and feeling?
Animal communicator Danielle MacKinnon shows you how to access your innate intuition (even if you aren’t yet aware of it) and connect with various animals using the universal language of all species. Learn how to move between the physical level and soul levels of connection with each animal to assist in achieving the greatest possible outcome for both animal and human.
Animals are living beings with instinctive wisdom. We can learn to connect intuitively with them in order to receive the lessons they have to share.
This immersive workshop is based on the principle that animals have something to teach each of us that will help to evolve our soul.
Throughout the weekend, you will
- Develop your animal intuitive senses to cultivate healing, harmony, and a deeper connection
- Explore the eights steps to telepathically give and receive information with animals
- Discover how to go beyond a superficial connection and attain a soul-level connection
- Learn about animal soul contracts and how animals use them to assist and heal us.
You’ll return home with valuable animal communication skills you can put into direct practice.
This is a fun and exciting way to work live with Danielle and incredible group of like-minded animal lovers. Enjoy in person readings, wild animal readings and much more—surrounded by the incredible Blue Ridge Mountains!
Bring photos of your pets!
Note Please read Animal Lessons by Danielle MacKinnon prior to the workshop.
Open to all; no previous experience is necessary. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
