Animal Communication Retreat

November 12 – 15, 2020
Live Online Retreat

*This retreat qualifies as a Level 1 class.

In this retreat, I’ll share proven tools, practices, and activities that will help you to discover your own natural ability to communicate with animals and all life. It will be a deep-dive immersion into animal and interspecies communication, and it is open to beginners as well as people who have had some experience with animal communication.

This retreat is designed to help you to discover and strengthen your inborn, natural ability to communicate directly with animals and all life through the universal language of telepathy.

Katy Quayle, who is in the 2020 class of the Animal Communication Professional Certification Program, gave this fantastic interview for her local radio station in the U.K. on animal communication and her experiences in the training program.

  • Nancy’s Professional Certification Program has definitely changed my life! I went into it with the intention to work professionally, but never imagined I would come out the other end ready to go into my own business right away.

    The program was the foundation I needed to be confident and experienced enough to go out on my own. I’m now working full-time as an animal communicator in my own business. It’s not hard to say that without Nancy’s guidance and loving support through her certification program, I would not be in the position I find myself in today.

    Thank you, Nancy, for offering your many years’ worth of learning and experience in such a thorough and well put together certification program.

  • Nancy's Professional Certification/Training Program is an in-depth program which encompasses the breadth and nuances which form the essentials for an animal communication practice. I found the use of digital tools along with the required practice, conversation and support to prove to be extremely effective. It was also great to feel part of a community, that our challenges are not unique, and to grow with the experience from others in the community.

    Among Nancy's gifts and skills are her ability to support individual students rather than simply prescribing solutions. It was great to be able to do the courses at my pace, emphasizing for myself the areas in which I was struggling the most, and learning tools which I continue to apply in my professional practice. I highly recommend Nancy as a teacher, mentor and facilitator. She is grounded, empathetic, walks the walk, and has a knack for adapting to support individuals on their unique journeys.

  • This course exceeded my expectations. The knowledge and experience I gained lifted me to a place of much greater confidence in my ability to move forward and make my own contribution in this field. Through participation in this program, I believe I have significantly developed my telepathic translation skills and consultation skills and have acquired valuable knowledge about how to manage an interspecies communication practice.

    The most important thing I am taking away from this class, however, came from the actual experience of just being with this instructor.  Nancy is fully present with her students in the same way she is present with her human and nonhuman clients. This actual experience of her presence and of the beautiful container she creates, helped me to expand my own ability to create the space with others, human and nonhuman, where real connection, deep understanding and healing can occur.

  • I am grateful to have had the opportunity to study with Nancy and to have completed her Professional Certification/Training Program. I was looking for a program that would support me in developing my animal communication skills on a deep level.

    What I received from this program was that and more. Through Nancy's guidance, my skill and confidence in my ability to communicate with other species increased each step of the way. Equally important to me was Nancy's ability to help me understand how this work is woven into who I am and how I want to bring this work out into the world. This program provided me with practical information as well as activities to help with integration. This program also offered many opportunities for me to practice my communication skills and receive valuable feedback from Nancy.

    When I experienced blocks or challenges, Nancy supported me in understanding how to move through them. In the process of developing and deepening my interspecies communication skills, I also developed a deeper understanding of myself.

    Completing this program has brought me to a new beginning in my life as I step into bringing this work out into the world.

Teacher Training Program

The Professional Animal Communication Teacher Training Program is designed to give you the curriculum materials, tools, and experience to teach your own animal communication workshops in-person, as well as, to be an assistant online teacher in the Animal Communication Academy.

This program is open to people who have completed the Professional Animal Communication Certification Program, and who have been working as a professional animal communicator for a minimum of one year, or by invitation/application.


  1. Completion of Professional Practitioner Training and Certification Program
  2. Professional practice as an animal communicator for a minimum of 1 year

This program is by invitation or application.

*Professional animal communicators who have completed professional training with another teacher that covers equivalent material as the Professional Certification Program may apply to be considered for inclusion in this program.


What is the tuition/cost for the entire program?

Currently, each class is priced separately, because not everyone starts the program with Nancy. Some have taken beginning and/or prerequisite classes with other teachers. In addition, offering the classes separately will allow you to take the classes at your own pace and/or enter the program at various times.

What does certification mean?

Certification through this program indicates that people have achieved and demonstrated a basic foundational competency in telepathic communication with animals, animal-human consultations, and professional ethics.

All animal communicators certified through this program must agree to adhere to the Code of Ethics for Interspecies Communicators by Penelope Smith, and the Ethical Agreements for Animal Communication Practice by Nancy Windheart.

How long does the program take to complete?

The program is designed so that people can progress through it at their own pace. If the courses are taken sequentially, the program will take approximately two years to complete.

Levels 1-3 of the program are open enrollment–students can take these courses whenever they feel ready and have completed the required prerequisites. Levels 4-7 of the program require application and acceptance after a review and assessment of students’ skills and aptitude.

Some students will take more than two years to move through the program, depending on their development and life path.
