Minnesota in the Summer? Yup, it couldn’t have been a better class…
The Intro to Small Animal Acupressure Course in Woodbury, MN on July 8-10 was the best. The number of dogs attending almost outnumbered the participants! With such a wide range of sizes and shapes of dogs, the participants had plenty of opportunities to practice honing their hands on skills. Thanks to all the two legged and four legged participants for two and a half wonderful days of learning!

A special thanks to Kate An Hunter of Carver Lake Veterinary Clinic for allowing us to teach at her beautiful facility and to Jenny Pavlovic for arranging for Tallgrass to come teach there. This is just a start, we will be back for another full round of courses in April 2012.

August ushers in the end of summer in the northern hemisphere. The grasses are tall and maturing into a yellow hue. Young animals are maturing, too.  It is a good time to plan for autumn and the gathering in of energy. The earth around us is transforming from rapid, intense growth of summer to the slower, gentle cooling of fall.

It won’t be long before winter gives way to the initial moments of spring in the southern hemisphere.  The fresh energy will begin to stir in animals and landscape alike. Remember to think about the strength and flexibility of ligaments and tendons.

LISTEN!  Kim’s Speaking on Animal Spirit Cafe’s Mastery Hour – The Chinese Concept of Shen: The Spirit of the Animal
Kim Bauer, Tallgrass’ Lead Instructor, will be the guest speaker on the Animal Spirit Cafe’s Mastery Hour Wednesday, August 24th from 6-7pm (Pacific time). The topic is The Chinese Concept of Shen: The Spirit of the Animal.


The Chinese considered the spirit to be as vital a part of the body as blood and chi. This presentation will explore how the spirit of the animal affects his body in relation to each of his internal organ systems. Western medicine is finally catching up to the profound concepts that Chinese medicine has understood for 1000s of years – the spirit of the animal does have a lot to do with the animal’s health.
