INTERSPECIES COMMUNICATION TRAINING
See the animal communicator directory for people trained by Penelope who are teaching these courses
BASIC COURSE How to Communicate with Animals
For Part 2, you may bring an animal friend, on leash or in a carrier, only if they are comfortable in strange surroundings and not a distraction to you or others. You will be able to work with other animals, so you are not obliged to bring your own. You may also bring photographs of your animal companions.
PREREQUISITE: read Penelope Smith's book, Animal Talk Fee: varies by location
ADVANCED I The Deepening (3 days)
For those who have practiced telepathic communication with animals after the Basic Course and want more knowledge, experience, direction, and inspiration to broaden and deepen their experience.
Relax, connect, bring to light and shed misconceptions that inhibit communion with our fellow beings. Learn from the master teachers on communication with animals: the animals themselves. Explore your spiritual communion with all the kingdoms of nature, the essence of communication with domestic and wild animals, plants, minerals, the elements, and the Earth. Savor the enchantment of the land, from forest to ocean. Intensify your awareness of the intelligence, beauty, and wisdom of all species. Travel into realms often unnoticed by humans. Ancestral ways of honoring spirit in all life, including drumming circles, chanting, dancing, and journeying for power animal guidance, amplify our root connection, communication, and kinship with the whole web of life.
PREREQUISITES: The Basic Course; Animal
Talk (book); continued practice of course skills
pen and notebook and photos of your animal friends.

As I was driving home from the Mastery Course, and after I arrived I was in a state of consciousness of timelessness. I was so in the "now" that I gave up trying to think about past or future.
Thank you does not begin to express how I feel about the Mastery Course. I feel that my goals and intentions were accomplished and then some. I would recommend the class to anyone and would take it again.
How does one thank someone that has helped to break their heart open to love? I have attended satang with Gangaji and now to hear you speak the same truths, only with an even greater connection and appreciation to ALL THAT IS has filled my heart with love and appreciation. Whomever we meet, human or otherwise, is just an opportunity for further investigation of the self and another chance for opening to ALL THAT IS.
From the retreat, I learned to live in the big "O" letting g"O" and living and building on that kn"O"wing ability. When I got back to the vet clinic where I work after our retreat, not only had I let go, but I I felt that new place of being. People who had been challenging for me changed positively in their behavior toward me. The letting "go" and living in that "O" and that wonderful feeling of honoring all had an effect on everyone around me. It was not a temporary state. I began to live it. Thank you for being SUCH a huge impact on/in my life.
INSTRUCTOR TRAINING PROGRAM Apprenticeships
After COURSES with PENELOPE
I attended the Basic Course and experienced what I can only describe as the beginning of a powerful spiritual awakening and healing. As you talked about plants, animals, and minerals being of the same spirit I connected into that vision, and that's when the healing started.

In your Basic Course I gained a tremendous foundation of knowledge, of what interspecies telepathic communication is all about. I learned about how to expand my view of animals, their minds and emotions and spiritual awareness. The skills I gained have helped me start communicating with all species, both sending and receiving communication. It was very refreshing to realize how much this form of communication is basic to our well-being, on all levels.
Thank you for the profound experiences with you and the other beings, human and non-human. I have had a few teachers over the years that have made a profound difference to my life and you are one of these. All of my beliefs have been shaken up and turned upside down. It is now my task to decide which ones are worth keeping and which ones to shed. I have been dropping down into that soft, quiet space, and I hope to live there once the road is clearer. I truly appreciate having the privilege to learn from you.
In your Advanced I Course you asked the participants what they expected from the seminar. I remember very well what I said: "I see myself walking on a path that leads to the land of animals. I hope that the course will bring me further on this path - just a few steps. I do not expect too much." I could not foresee what would happen to me. I had asked for a piece of bread and I got a birthday cake!
On the first day of the Advanced II Course you asked again about our expectations, and this time I didn't answer. What could I tell you? It was so simple - I came to Point Reyes because I had to come. No expectations, no wishes but the absolute certainty that I had to attend the course. Perhaps I would get a piece of bread - perhaps. But again I received my birthday cake.
I am grateful for so many things: first of all for your presence, your attention, your enthusiasm, your affection, your care. The composition and the organization of the course were perfect. Your house and your animals really made me feel at home. I am also very grateful for having met so many wonderful people. The experiences that we shared during our lessons were extraordinary, and I will never forget the intense and intelligent conversations....And our laughter, our joy, our feeling of being connected since a long time!
I have changed so much by talking with animals, for I dream and pretend again. At one of your classes you made a comment to us "if you j
ust aren't gett
ing it, pretend you are." I know what you meant by this, it was to let yourself go and not stress on the answer. However, it made me realize h
ow serious I had taken all the "crap" that had happened to me in my life. Also remembering how I was reprehended as a child to stop making up stories and dreaming and get serious! Well, now I dream dreams and make up stories for my seven-year-old son before he goes to bed at night. I tell him stories of flying silver dragons, castles, fairies and dolphins that give you rides through the sea a
nd around the world. What I love most about telling these stories, is the imagination that I see shine
through my son's eyes as I tell the stories. He goes to sleep with a smile on his face. Your thoughts on how we view our world was so "right on" for me and I thank you.
The proverbial life altering experience....It was like taking the most difficult, yet most rewarding graduate class of my life. We worked on OURSELVES to peel back the layers of issues that just living life paints over us. The theme was BEING PRESENT. In order to actually BE PRESENT I learned that one needs to clear out the accumulation of debris one carries around for who knows how many lifetimes. When one is actually PRESENT, I found that telepathic communication is possible with literally ANYTHING!
We felt the presence of the Divine as we chanted, drummed, danced as our power animal companions, called in the Spirits from the four winds and connected firmly to Mother Earth. We meditated, discussed our dreams and shared our lives....I have gained a wider, deeper appreciation of myself and all whom I encounter. So what now? THE WORK CONTINUES. THE JOY IS ENDLESS. LIFE IS GOOD!
Your classes open up a wonderful portal for me to jump through to see and live life in a more real, connected way.
