Level 1 : An introduction to telepathic inter-species communication

Facilitator: Jacqueline Buckingham

If you long to deepen your relationship with the animals that share your life and to understand them even better than you already do, this three-day training is for you.

Animals pick up our emotions, thoughts and energy.  They respond and react to it instantly. To communicate with them you only have to rediscover your innate ability to pass information to and fro.

The ancient art of interspecies communication will deepen your relationship with nature and all beings as it opens up a whole new way of seeing and relating to the natural world.

Event time: Fri 15th Jul 2022 at 11:00am - Sun 17th Jul 2022 at 4:00pm

At a glance

  • Learn animal communication, what it is and how it works
    Practice sending and receiving messages with animals telepathically
    Spend time consciously connecting with nature in all its forms

During the weekend you will learn

  • The ability to communicate with any animal, or aspect of nature
  • Tools to help you support animals through times of change
  • Practises to help you to relax and trust the process
  • Methodology for working with changes in an animal’s behaviour

This course will reconnect you with your natural ability to communicate telepathically with animals and all aspects of nature. During the three days, you will learn the foundational techniques and will practice communicating with animals remotely, including with those in your own life.

You will discover the wide variety of situations in which these skills can be applied and will spend time connecting with the wild ones on this land, as you are guided to rediscover this ancient skill.

You will also receive a manual to support your continued practice – and a free place at one of Jacqueline’s twice-monthly practice group sessions (online).

You will practice communicating with animals remotely, including with those in your own life, as you are gently guided to rediscover this skill.

This work also supports those who work with animals, helping them to produce even better results.  Vets, dog and horse trainers, dog groomers, rescue centre volunteers and wildlife conservationists have all studied with Jacqueline to great positive effect.

Applications of Interspecies Communication

Animal communication helps us to understand animals (wild and domesticated) even better by providing a common language through which we can share and understand one another’s experiences.
It can be used to support animals in times of change; help rescued and rehabilitated animals settle into a new environment, and work with resolving behavioural issues.
It particularly supports those who work with animals to produce even better results.  Vets, dog and horse trainers, dog groomers, rescue centre volunteers and wildlife conservationists have all studied with Jacqueline to great positive effect.

"Whatever your connection with animals, the Art of Animal Communication helps create greater understanding and harmony between humans and all species of our planet."



On Friday we will explore exactly what telepathic animal communication is, how it works and the various ways in which information can be sent and received telepathically. We will play with this rediscovered skill and will start to explore the land around Hawkwood College. You will also experience and begin to understand the world through the eyes of an animal.


Saturday will be filled with opportunities to practice the foundational techniques that you learned yesterday, working remotely with both wild and domesticated animals and receiving immediate feedback. You will be given tools to help you move through any obstacles that may come up. We will continue to explore the land at Hawkwood and to connect more deeply with wild ones here. In the evening we will watch the documentary, The Animal Communicator together.


Sunday you will continue to practice these new skills. You will learn how to support an animal that has a behavioural issue and you will have an opportunity to practice this with the animal of a fellow participant. We will explore how emotions can become obstacles to clear communication and learn how animals deal with the different stages of life. You will be introduced to the powerful technique of subtle activism, a technique that is vital to creating a healthy and healed planet at this time. We will end the day by consciously completing our time together.

“Jacqueline is a knowledgeable and respectful presenter who does a good job of moving through the material in a structured way. She was mindful of allowing each participant to speak their truth”
