    • Animal Communication with Joan Ranquet MAR2023

      Join us on Vashon Island with Joan Ranquet for this special in-person 2-Day Workshop on Basic and Intermediate Animal Communication. In this 2-day workshop, Joan will not only teach animal communication but ways to enhance human/animal relationships. You will gain true perspective into the animals that you are communicating with and assist in creating a positive shift for the animal.

      Basic Animal Communication – Day 1
      Students learn how animals communicate with each other as well as how to enhance human/animal relationships. Students do exercises to deepen intuition and learn telepathy: sending and receiving pictures, words and feelings. Students start with very basic questions with the first animal. Then the students move on to working with pictures to communicate with animals at a distance. Please bring pictures of your animals to communicate with.
      10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

      Intermediate Animal Communication – Day 2
      On the second day of the workshop, the students gain important practice with a variety of animals.
      10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
