The Animal Communication Mastery Series was the key to unlocking a door which opened to a world I had long ago hidden away.  At a time in my life when I wasn’t sure what I was going to do or where I was headed, I sat down to listen to the CD series and found myself unable to put it aside. Hearing Penelope's stories and examples reminded me of a part of myself that I had shut off many years before, when I somehow felt that what I was experiencing wasn’t “normal.” Penelope helped me to see that not only was it acceptable to experience these things but that world was still alive and well within me and just bursting to be set free. Listening to the CD series, gave me the opening I needed in my life, to give myself permission to open the door once again. Once opened, my world expanded beyond measure with the peace, love, and joy from the animal and nature kingdom. Listening to and experiencing this CD series changed my life forever and led me on the path to becoming a professional animal communicator myself, and to share this natural ability with others. D.H.

Thank you, Penelope, for for the beautiful recordings that you made on animal spirituality which ultimately led me into my wonderful conversation with my cat, Regal. It was a profound experience which has had a transforming impact on my being. I have always had a respect and regard for animals but could be casual as I encountered them, say for example, walking down the street. Now when I encounter an animal as I walk around the neighborhood, it is like a sweet magnetic force within, a recognition of their intelligence, feelings, and spiritual nature. And, in turn, I make some kind of warm contact. I am so much more aware of the beauty and individuality in all animals and feel a deep reverence in their presence. L.F.

THE BASIC COURSE How to Communicate with Animals

Now you can practice at home the time-honored “How to Communicate with Animals” course developed by Penelope Smith! 

Reawaken your telepathic communion with all of life and experience the joy of understanding other species, from dogs to whales to butterflies.

Basic Course How to Communicate with Animals by Penelope Smith
Penelope began teaching how to communicate with animals in the 1970’s. Since that time she has tested, expanded, and refined the methods found in the Basic Course, teaching thousands of students all over the world to rediscover and develop their telepathic connection with other species. Many animal communicators around the world have also apprenticed with Penelope to teach this course.

In this recording and accompanying booklet, Penelope clearly guides you through the topics, exercises, and practical guidance found in a live Basic Course. It is intended for those who cannot attend a course in-person with an instructor, and is also effective for continued practice of the materials after attending a Basic Course. It is recommended that you read
Animal Talk before you begin.

I am so thrilled to have the Basic Course CDs. I took the basic course with you years ago and have not practiced at all to my potential. Now, I can work harder and keep myself refreshed on communicating with the animals. Thank you so, so much for producing this.  It’s beautiful and helpful and I am so very grateful  C.B

Your How to Communicate with Animals The Basic Course IS BEAUTIFUL! The golden background color and texture, the golden print combined with this very special blue/green color on the CDs, booklet sleeve and cover are dazzling - it really sparkles when you open it! I noticed the intentional balance the position of the birds on the CDs gives when opened - on CD 1 bird is on the left, on CD 2, the bird is on the right. That is another of the many fine details which contribute to the overall beauty. And the quality of the materials does the artwork and your life work due justice.

As I listened in to the CDs, I was impressed how your teaching on the CDs and the very detailed accompanying Booklet is JUST as comprehensive as experiencing your Basic Course live with you. I should have bought this CD set immediately after my Basic Course with you - it would have been the perfect tool to continue and deepen my journey of recovering my telepathic animal communication abilities. It is a treasure for life and any one interested in telepathic animal communication would benefit greatly from your CDs You speak so clearly - and slowly enough - that people who speak English as a foreign language can understand you very well. What a gift to the world!

I think the most effective recordings are the live lectures. Everything dovetails so perfectly. They have the perfect blend of seriousness and wit and magnetic force, with impeccable timing. B.F.

The CLASSIC video on the subject

Introduction and overview of the subject. Eye-opening for skeptics!

Penelope Smith demonstrates ways of increasing our understanding and harmony with other species and makes clear why it is fundamentally important to heighten our awareness of other animals' spiritual nature and to expand our abilities to fully
communicate with them.

We witness consultations and interviews with people and their animal companions who have benefited from Penelope's communication, counseling, and healing work. In scenes of courses, we get a taste of techniques that help people regain their power to telepathically communicate with other species.

How enduring the video program has been! Sure speaks to people. We know a little boy who watched it 30 times. R.H.

It was that video that began all that I am expressing in the world. It was that video that guided me to my deep soul reunion and journey home to the one sacred love with my cat! It was that video that had me call you and then you sent me to an animal communicator who opened the door. L.M.

WildAnimalsSpeak - Wolf on video cover
filmed during a rare wildlife communication retreat facilitated by Penelope Smith at Earthfire Institute Wildlife Sanctuary in Idaho with the Teton mountain peaks in the background.

It is the combination of Penelope Smith's lifetime work of communicating telepathically with other species and the ability of the animals to make their voices heard and their wisdom and powerful energy felt. In this retreat, Penelope helps the human participants release the mindsets that limit their ability to listen and walk in understanding with other species. Fostering heart to heart, mind to mind, and soul to soul connection with animals brings people into a refreshing relationship with wild animals as fellow intelligent beings.

Basic principles of telepathic communication are used to enable people to experience thoughts, feelings, and energetic transmissions from coyotes, foxes, bears, a cougar, bison, and other Earthfire residents. In this holy ground of true meeting, witness how the animals respond favorably, magic happens, and human perspectives are deeply shifted. You will be moved into a receptive state of communion as you watch this DVD.

Part of the DVD proceeds will help support the wild animals of Earthfire Institute.

Earthfire Institute provides a lifelong home for rescued wild animals who are not capable of living in the wild. While the animals retain their essential wildness, they are comfortable with humans, so their innate curiosity and desire for relationship can flourish. The animals then become partners in an intimate experience of the interdependency between humans and all of nature. The experience creates a deep transformative sense of the connection between humans and the larger community of life. The Institute’s mission is to awaken ecological advocacy through human connection to the rescued wildlife of Earthfire.



A powerful embrace of our ancestral roots honoring kinship with all life. Chant, dance, drum, and sing with animal powers and ancient healing spirits.

Over the years, students of our Advanced Interspecies Communication Courses have requested a recording for remembrance and further practice of the drumming and chanting we do to gather our energy and call in the spirits. The form of this Spirit Power Circle came from my guiding spirits and through knowledge of the Native American Medicine Wheel. The Student Power Song came as I drummed with students to call in the spirits of all the directions. It has now been sung in circles around the world.

I remember the drumming as I arrived each morning for the Advanced Courses. The energy of the Spirit Power Circle and the Student Power Song was magical. The Ancient Grandmothers Healing Songs help me go to that beautiful place inside myself. Thank you for the gift of this incredible CD, I now have the tool to recreate that energy for myself, my family, and friends. C.L.

Thank you so much for recording the circle chant. I did it this morning and it helped ground me. In fact, I didn’t have any other humans to complete my circle so Molly and Chester (dogs) joined in and we all walked in a circle following the rattle. A.C.

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your Animal Spirit Call CD. It is phenomenal. You have a most beautiful and soulful voice. It moves me on many levels. I played the CD this AM. It brought me much peace. I needed a lift out of an unhealthy and unhappy emotional state I found myself in. L.K.

One of my favorite practices to include giving of thanks is to play "Animal Spirit Call". This CD gave me a starting point and framework to include expressions of gratitude in my everyday life. Over the years, singing it has deepened my awareness of, connection with, and gratitude for all life. 
As Penelope describes her CD, it is "A powerful embrace of our ancestral roots honoring kinship with all life". Thank you, Penelope, for sharing this beautiful gift, sung all over the world. K.T.


Chant lyrics and melodies arose out of dolphin/whale journeys, shamanic ceremonies, contemplative moments, and during dreams. They were given to share with my fellow travelers in the physical world to help us feel the core of who we really are on our spiritual journey home.

After years of singing the chants with students in courses and retreats, I wanted to record them with musical accompaniment. At last, they are here for those of you who have enjoyed singing them before and for other travelers on the Earth journey.

I have been listening to the chants, and oh, how beautiful they are. So many of them I'd forgotten about until I heard them again, and then they all came back to me (except the new ones!) And with the music so many sweet memories of our times with the whales and dolphins and all of the retreats...

And, your voice is lovely. And the harmony and guitar is beautiful, too. Whoever it was that said it was like the old folk music singers nailed it. I'm listening to Somewhere out There now as I write this--I don't remember this one, so it must be new...or my memory poor. It is so beautiful.

Thank you so much for the chants...they accompany me in my office work and make it not seem as overwhelming!
