Listening without Judgment
Day One - 10:00 AM - 6 PM
This class focuses on the spiritual aspects of animal communication for students who are just beginning to learn this concept.
It can be said in general that most people no longer know how to listen, either to each other or to themselves. Though most of us have ears that can hear very well, we do not actually know how to use these ears to listen at a deeper level. Listening has become a lost art.
The relationship of thinking to listening is an important subject we will study in this class. It is one that we will go into in great depth. We are living in an imperfect world, and we need to become channels for ourselves and others for the truth of reality to shine through our minds and actions.
In this class, we will work with problems that animals bring to us as reflections of our imperfect world. Neglect, abuse, hunger, stress, pollution, fear, aggression, all cause great harm to the Earth. In order to understand the roots of these problems, we will work with the animals at this deeper level, using compassion and personal sacrifice.
Listening at this level is a balm that begins the process of metaphysical healing.
Understanding at this level opens us to the path of our own recovery.
Bring two identified cases (pictures/stories) to work with, of animals who are suffering in your immediate environment, either domestic or wild.)
