Our pets give us so much more than companionship, and we want to give them the care they deserve so they can live a long, happy, healthy life. . We also want to better communicate with them better so we can take care of their needs as well as to enhance our bond with them as companions and guides.

We often look at our pets and wonder what they are thinking. After you attend this insightful program, you just might KNOW what they are thinking! And, you’ll learn practical tools and techniques for helping the pets and animals in your world enjoy a longer, healthier, happier life!

During this experiential weekend, you will:

  • Understand what Edgar Cayce said about the role of animals and nature in our soul’s journey
  • Gain new skills and insights for improving intuitive animal communication
  • Learn easy acupressure and massage techniques for enhancing health and wellness
  • Experience a full-day workshop for using EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to help combat your pet’s phobias, anxiety, trauma, and other issues
  • Learn the benefits of holistic pet health to improve vitality and longevity by blending natural diet and nutrition, simple helpful remedies, and healthy lifestyle
  • Have an opportunity to connect with your pet—or a pet that has crossed over—with random readings for the audience

Registration: Friday, March 27, 5:45 p.m. Program Ends: Sunday, March 29, 5:00 p.m.



PLEASE NOTE: We love our pets, but they are not allowed to attend the program; please leave them at home. Final schedule and additional program details available online 10 weeks before program date; subject to change, check website for updates.






Animals bring so much joy and richness to our lives—now you can give them the gift of loving care and communication in return!
