Retreat Program

Discover and strengthen your inborn, natural ability to communicate directly with animals and all life through the universal language of telepathy.


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.


In this retreat, you will:

  • Learn reliable, proven tools for interspecies communication that you can continue to practice and use when you go home
  • Develop your ability to experience direct connection and communication with animals, and also plants, trees, rocks, nature spirits, and other life forms
  • Develop an understanding of your own individual process for sending and receiving telepathic communication
  • Understand and feel the difference between direct two-way telepathic communication and human mental processes and thinking
  • Gain a wider appreciation and awareness of the consciousness, intelligence, and wisdom that is available in and within all of the cosmos.

This retreat 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.

I have taught this program for over a decade, and I will share with you the most important tools and practices that I know for connecting reliably, clearly, and accurately with animals and all life.


Relationships with animals and other non-human beings are some of the most important relationships in our lives. At this time on our planet, it’s more important than ever that we learn to listen to and learn from the non-human beings who share the world with us.


Retreat Content and Schedule

In this retreat, you will have an opportunity to “unplug” from your normal life and learn new ways of being, listening, and understanding.

We’ll experience new ways of listening through practices of silence, guided exercises and meditations, time to connect with animals and the land, connecting in sacred circle on the land through ceremony, and other practices designed to help you to open your internal intuitive and telepathic senses and listen and hear in new ways.

We will practice with animals both in person and at a distance, and have time for questions, feedback and guidance.

We’ll come together to practice and explore in a like-minded community of animal and nature lovers, with an emphasis on mutual support, learning, and growth.

Come prepared to open into new ways of being and perceiving, on the land and beautiful, nurturing energy of Synergia Ranch.

The retreat begins on Thursday evening, November 12, at 6 pm with dinner, and ends Monday morning, November 16, after breakfast.
