Shamanism & Animal Communication 

Shining Horse: Animal Communication

Animal Communication Course & Diploma

"The world needs more people who are prepared to be ambassadors for the Earth and the animal kingdom. To this end, we must constantly be striving to be the best we can be, learning from one another, maintaining integrity, humility and a beginner's mind. My hope is that as animal communicators, we be wholly wedded to an internal code of standards and ethics to include the principle of non-violence. It is my belief that this principle should be applied both towards our treatment of the animals themselves but also to the way in which we treat the humans to whom we pass our messages. Only by embracing the principle of non-violence can we ensure that our messages be heard and integrated by their human recipients."  
Susie Shiner

The Animal Communication Course is made up of the eight Path of the Seer Shamanic Training modules PLUS the eight Animal Communication modules below.
