Date/s:  tba Time/s: 10.00m to 4.00pm
Location: Awareness Institute Duration: 1 day
Pre requisites: none Facilitator/s: Lynn Overhill
Cost: $tba

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear what your favourite dog or cat or horse (or other kind of pets) thinks about their life?  They can tell you what they like, what they don’t want and what their own “bucket list” looks like.  Come along to a day filled with lots of validation (and fun)!  You will work in small groups, large groups, 1-on-1 and in meditation.  This will show you that you too can hear directly from your own animals. If you are a healer or shamanic practitioner, these new skills will help you in your day-to-day clinic work.
