Dear Friends,
Like you, the Ecovillage Community is very aware of the Coronavirus and the need for containment, and discussions on how we can support community resilience have been active and dynamic during this uncertain time. We want to continue to share our space and story with you, however the community has decided in the short term to cancel all onsite events and do our bit to limit the spread as much as possible. We will continue to review as further information become clearer – please consult this page or Facebook for updates, or feel free to reach out:   02 4328-1588 or info@nararaecovillage.com
Best wishes for staying healthy over the next while, the Narara Ecovillage Community

Postponed – Animal Communication Training
Apr 3 @ 7:30 pm – Apr 5 @ 8:30 pm

** Postponed until 2021 **

Sign up here to be notified of new date.

10% of profits from all 2020 workshops will be donated to WIRES NSW to support the rehoming and rehabilitation of wildlife affected by the bushfires

This weekend workshop will help you rediscover your innate telepathic communication skills, and develop your natural intuition and ability to communicate with other species. During the weekend you will:

  • learn the principles and techniques of interspecies communication
  • discover how animals express themselves
  • learn to receive and send messages effectively
  • identify your own unique ways of receiving accurate information
  • learn to support animals in times of change
  • discover ways of helping rehabilitated animals
  • learn how to work with animals exhibiting behavioural issues
  • learn how we can support animals through illness and death
  • discover the vital role that animal communication plays during natural disasters
  • deepen your relationship with all animals and all of nature

If you have animals in your life, whether as companions or as part of your work, interspecies communication can support and facilitate your interspecies relationships to be more harmonious and more effective.

Course fees include tea/coffee and light refreshments, course workbook and a certificate of attendance.
