The new 2-day, Advanced Animal Communication 1 course (condensed from 3 days) is for those who have practiced telepathic communication with animals after the “Communicating with Animals” basic course, and want more knowledge, direction, and inspiration to broaden and deepen their experience.

Continue along the ever fascinating path of communicating with animals, and open yourself to receive the vast information that is held in the complete messages from the animals. In this advanced course, learn to synchronize more completely with animal teachers, so that you may understand the depth and full meaning of their communications with you. Learn techniques to further assist in understanding animal experiences physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually — connecting with them as complete beings.

Journey through exercises to let go of blocks to your communications with animals, and move past old patterns that may be hindering your complete connection. Practices will include extended time with the animals and nature, refining your ability to receive telepathic communication clearly and accurately, and to be deeply present.

Learn, directly from the animals, how to understand your presence as a unique human within the realms of Nature, while learning about life’s greatest lessons from these masterful beings who share our world. Enrich yourself with new patterns, ideas, and tools to assist you in the exploration and advancement of your human-animal-nature-earth connection.  This class is now limited to 8 students.

Recommended Preparation

Read an advanced book on animal communication (i.e. “When Animals Speak”, or “Animals in Spirit”, by Penelope Smith), listen to available recordings such as Penelope Smith’s “Animal Communication Mastery Series” on CD etc., and explore various materials from additional animal communicators.

About The Instructor & What Students Say

communicating with animals

Carol Schultz Groch, MBA, LMT, has been a professional Animal Communicator since 2000. Her chosen path to assist animals and their people was greatly inspired by her feline friend, Panda, a graceful, wise, and playful companion. Although Panda has since passed into spirit, Carol’s healing journey with animals continues to evolve.

Carol’s path in animal wellness has included the training and application of various intuitive healing support modalities, and a committed focus on client grief support. As Carol’s personal understanding of the interconnectivity between humans and their companion animals has expanded, she has begun to see the process of inter-species healing and communication in a different light.  As a way to more deeply understand the human side of this connection, Carol embarked upon the study of Massage, Craniosacral Therapy and the effects of trauma, and now incorporates this further learning into her work with people and their animals.   Private practice animal communication consultations with Carol support all concerns, including behavior, performance, health, life changes, end of life, in-spirit, and lost animals.  Read More.
