Monday morning – after feeling better seeing softening of inflammation on chest between legs finally after 4 days. Around 11 am – in 10 minutes time my horse moved around enough in a 12 x 12 stall after her buddies were out of sight to ‘suck air into her body’ through the 1 inch gash… She ballooned up – It felt like skin over an air cushion instead of solid muscle – chest, shoulders – withers to elbow, on back – now moved above lumbar area… It crinkles like bubble wrap in some places – air cushion, hollow – in others.
A lovely time had by all, as is obvious based on all the smiles! Share in the testimony that is the ROTH and Ann Twinney experience!

“This has been the most transformative experience. I had no idea what to expect and was challenged, pushed past my comfort zone, and I am anxious to see how my new perspective carries out once I return home.”
Siri Y. of Brynsvegen, Norway
“I enjoyed every minute!”
Carol P.H. of Poway, CA
“It was a life-changing experience. The Bitterroot Ranch is magical. Anna is a very caring person and it comes out in her training. Interacting with the horses is wonderful. They love Reiki and give back as much as they receive.”
Suzette B. of Pasadena, CA
“The Reach Out to Horses Clinic included liberty and ground work with horses, and Reiki (direct, long distance, and for horses), as well as trail riding at the beautiful Bitterroot Ranch. The highlights for me were the life lessons and the liberty work, where I learned not to plan so much and allow for a conversation with the horses. And the ground work where I got to meet and groom a wonderful 2-year-old horse.”
Asha W. of Longmont, CO
“A truly magical experience.”
Katrina S. of West Granby, CT
“This time at the Bitterroot Ranch with Anna was one of the most wonderful times of my life. It was truly magical. I can’t wait to share my new self.”
Chuck H. of Ridgefield, CT
“A life-changing experience that was full of challenges yet rewarding beyond imagination for the mind, body, and soul.”
Heather, L.H. Of CO Springs
“There are no words to express my experience this week. Truly life transforming. This was my second clinic with Anna and I know I am changed again: The horses, the healing, the passion, the bonding, and the life lessons – Truly amazing.”
Nancy M. of Green Bay, WI
“Powerful transformations with not only yourself but your horse/animals. Let Anna guide you on this magical journey of awakening.”
Love you, XXOO”
Catherine H. of Ridgefield, CT
“Anna Twinney’s Healing Horses Workshop has been the experience of a lifetime. It has expanded my heart and increased my confidence with horses. Our group bonded quickly and I feel I have formed friendships that will continue to grow.”
Thanks to all the participants who joined Anna on this lovely retreat and blessings as they go back out into the world with a new perspective on life and what they can do to support all those in their lives with Reiki!
Today the animals want you to know that it is time to
quiet your old voice and allow a new one to awaken. ~ Anna Twinney
EXPLORING ANIMAL COMMUNICATION
TRINIDAD & TOBAGO
When Veronika and Anna met on Skype for the very first time, Veronika mentioned a very unexpected surprise for Anna. “It’s a symbol giving us inspiration,” she said. It’s been on my desk since 2008 and now look we stand here together, united. I don’t go on what I read or the person, I go on what I feel. I was like a child when I first saw your logo. It drew me right in and is so very important. It inspired me to create my logo.

Taking risks, having faith, and blindly following your heart takes you to extraordinary places in life…I followed the call of the horse in 1997 which changed my life forever. Let it be your time.
7 NEW Extra-Ordinary Experiences in TT:
My first time teaching in the Caribbean
Riding the waves on multiple, magical, retired race horses
Eating exotic daily cuisine
Experiencing nighttime yoga
Moonlight turtle nesting adventure
Hitchhiking a ride with the local police department
Meeting the Prime Minister at the Tobago Charity Gold Classic function
We were super excited to have Dr. Leah ~ Acupuncturist, massage therapist, and Healing with Horses Board Member come over from Trinidad to join us for the whole animal communication experience.
With an open mind and heart, Dr. Leah explored integrating the Young Living essential oils into her treatment. Her sessions conducted at liberty, giving the horses free choice and a voice, she included them in the selection process.
When Navajo selected 5 oils, the pendulum revealed Relieve It, Hope and Di-gize to be the most serving for the day! With Hope on the heart chakra and Relieve it massaged in – Navajo choreographed his healing.
While having my hair braided in Tobago, I noticed this kitty rolling around on my pouch containing Essential Oils. I was unsure as to which oil triggered the love-fest, but for more than five minutes it was clear that the kitty was absolutely selecting an oil she needed! Often when we see big reactions to Essential Oils, we don’t often get it on film. It was great to see kitty’s reaction and share it with you all as a testament to the animals’ needs and desires to heal or soothe themselves.
About Healing with Horses
Jennifer was the Founding Horse of Being with Horses. This beautiful, sensitive chestnut mare came to us all the way from Speyside. She had lived in the rainforest as a leader for a herd of twenty sheep. In 2007 Veronika walked this lovely mare all the way from Speyside, a 20-hour trek, to bring her to her new home in Buccoo.

A Healing Journey In Paradise
Animal Communication, Trust-Based Horsemanship, Energy Healing, and Riding in the Rainforest with International Horsewoman and Animal Communicator, Anna Twinney in the Rainforest of Costa Rica
February 11th-17th 2018
Join Anna on an adventure of a lifetime in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica!
As the founder of Reach Out to Horses, Anna, has brought you to the mountains of Wyoming, the desert of the Wild West and the exquisite landscape of the French countryside. Now she is excited to announce her return to paradise and she is pulling out all the stops to make this a special trip for all who join her.
Welcome to the next Healing Journey In Paradise retreat in Costa Rica. Located in Costa Rica’s tropical rainforest, Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano are a sightseer’s dream. While traveling within this part of the country, immersed in an idyllic jungle setting, this amazing retreat provides you with an opportunity to experience Costa Rica at its fullest! Howler monkeys, toucans and macaws, sloths, pizotes, hundreds of bird species, as well as the beautiful tropical flora, make this location a nature lover’s paradise! And that is just the backdrop for your life-changing adventure
During this weeklong retreat you will learn true, trust-based horsemanship, one of the most popular healing arts in the world, Reiki, and explore the world of Animal Communication, all while vacationing in one of the most beautiful vacation spots in the world.
What is in store for you when you join us in February of 2018?
Day 1 – Arrive in Costa Rica
Arrive at the beautiful Majestic Lodge, your tropical home away from home! Nestled in a cove on the Lake Arenal with spectacular views of the Volcano and Lake, this warm and inviting Lodge offers you comfort and relaxation. After arriving, enjoy the Jacuzzi with a cocktail and have dinner on the open-air deck, while enjoying the grand view of the Arenal Volcano. You will sleep in the luxury of orthopedic beds and air-conditioned rooms and awake to the beautiful sounds of the various, tropical birds, and the morning call of the nearby Howler monkeys.
Day 2 – Learn the Most Popular Healing Art in the World!
Start the day with a “typical Costa Rican breakfast” followed by a day learning the popular healing art of Reiki with unimaginable views and extraordinary energy!
Reiki, translated from Japanese as “Universal Life Force”, is already used in clinics, private practices and hospitals all around the world.
Many people from all walks of life have awoken to the amazing benefits that Reiki can provide.
Developed as a healing art in early 20th century Japan, Reiki is a holistic, non-invasive technique that heals on all levels of the body, mind and spirit. In addition it can enhance other modalities of healing, both traditional and alternative, alleviate pain and has been proven to reduce stress in both humans and animals.
With this unique style of energy healing you can:
· Alleviate stress, fears, worry and frustrations
· Assist the body in cleansing different types of toxins
· Help people break unwanted habits or conditions like smoking, overeating and alcoholism
· Work on anything from your pets, houseplants and even your computer!
· And more…
You will discover exactly what Reiki is, how to use it to heal yourself and others, and be certified and attuned to Reiki I certification.
Topics covered during the workshop include:
· Level I Attunement
· Reiki registers and energy movement
· The Proper Use of Reiki
· Starting a Reiki Practice
· Body and Energy Scanning
· Chakras: What they are and how to use them
And everyone who attends the workshop gets a full Reiki healing session so you can experience the amazing power of Reiki for yourself. Through Anna’s fun, powerful and nurturing style she will guide you to your full potential and help you discover what you might never even have thought possible!
Whether you haven’t worked with Reiki before, feel it’s time to take the next step or you want to take your Reiki practice to the next level, this is the perfect location to begin your journey of Reiki.
And that’s just the first day!
Day 3 – Morning – A little bit of T.L.C. Spend the morning horse whispering! Experience Anna’s unique ROTH methodologies based around her step-by-step safety system. Become intimate, support in their relaxation, come to understand your horse’s past experiences, and begin the process of building a trusting partnership and getting to know your horse before you gain their permission to ride in the rainforest. Incorporate visualization, body language, feel, timing, and more, as you explore these trust-based exercises.
Afternoon – Rancho Margo Ride! Your first ride in Costa Rica will take you far up into the mountains and through the tropical rainforest to capture beautiful views of nature and pastureland. Be prepared to see an array of tropical wildlife, Toucans, Monkeys, Sloths, Pizotes and various species of birds. The views of the Arenal Volcano and natural rainforest can’t be beat!
On the way into the jungle, we will stop for a late lunch at Rancho Margot, an eco-ranch that is the very model of self-sustainability. Almost everything they serve is grown on their farm and all their meat comes from their own free range chickens, and free roaming cattle. The lunch is an open buffet, with fresh salads, vegetables, meats and pizza.
Day 4 – Dances with Horses – After enjoying a fresh and healthy breakfast, we will jump into the “deep end” of equine communication – the obstacle course. The obstacle course is one of the most effective instruments in horsemanship and you will join your equine partner at liberty to discover not only the complexity of the language of Equus but also your authentic self!
You will learn how to communicate effectively with your horse energetically as well as through intricate movements, gaining the partnership and connection you’ve always desires.
Anna developed the obstacle course over 18 years ago. Since then thousands of her students from all over the world have worked with the obstacle course for a myriad of purposes.
You will apply this safe and effective training approach to all interactions with your horses, while at the same time determining a deeper understanding of your horse’s learning style. Not only will Anna show you how to read the subtleties of your horse’s body language and direct your horse on the ground but she will enlighten you to the specific life lessons your horse wants you to know!
Once the day is done, you will enjoy watching the sunset with cocktail in-hand at the hot tube before another mouthwatering dinner overlooking Arenal lake and contemplating the life lessons the horses brought to you this day.
Day 5 – Animal Communication and the waterfall ride you will never forget!
Animal communication is just a belief away! After a delicious breakfast, on the open-air deck, overlooking the Volcano, Anna will introduce you to the amazing world of Animal Communication. You will explore your inherent gifts and discover how to telepathically connect and communicate with a being of another species.
With this heart-to-heart connection you will uncover a new wordless language of love, a language of thoughts, images, feelings, emotions and other intuitive senses.
Next be sure to bring your camera (or smartphone). We will join Lilander and our horses and go on a 4-hour horseback ride to a beautiful, tropical waterfall tucked deep in the jungle. After a 2-hour ride up, up, up, into the primary rainforest, we will reach the top of the mountain where you will tie up your horses and hike down to the waterfall.
Here you can enjoy a refreshing swim, and relax with beautiful, bountiful nature. The water, and the spectacular flora and fauna will create an experience you will never forget.
We will have our picnic lunch by the waterfall and then hike back up to our horse partners. Enjoy lunch surrounded by the pristine, natural world before connecting with the wild ones. You will explore the magical gifts from our messengers – the animals themselves.
In the afternoon we head back, returning to the Majestic Lodge for a hot soak, or refreshing swim and relax before dinner. In the evening we will go out for dinner to one of our favorite spots in Costa Rica!
Day 6 – Reiki; Energy Healing for Horses.
One of energy healing’s most effective and astounding uses is in the healing of animals. Horses, and animals in general, are great clients for energy work because they don’t have any preconceived notions or skepticism that often get in the way of human receptivity. An animal is simply present to the experience.
You will learn how to:
· Ask for “permission” from your animal companions
· Set up a safe energy healing session
· Scan your horse’s body
· Locate the energy centers of the body, known as the chakras
· Listen to your horse and read his body gestures
· Facilitate “love lessons”
· Recognize the duration of sessions
We have found that most horses love Reiki and other forms of energy work. They will quite often relax into the healing session, lower their heads, keeping a leg cocked in a relaxed position, and even close their eyes as they enjoy the sensation. Many times you can even hear their stomachs gurgle as the healing energy flows through them, clearing energy blocks as it goes. And when they have had enough, they will usually let you know by “waking up” and sometimes even walking away.
Anna will show you the most effective way to apply your practice and your skills to the horse. This is also a great opportunity to review your skills if you are a little rusty or maybe feel like you need a little more instruction. Improve your skill set, increase your confidence, and heal some horses!
The information you will learn comes directly to you from Anna and her decades of knowledge and experience.
Day 7 – Ride with ROTH on the Lake Arenal Trek!
You will embark once again for a stunning rainforest trail ride with your equine partner. Your guides will show you all the amazing flora and fauna along the way! We will travel the lake road taking in the vibrant, green forest that surrounds us.
You will cross over Cano Negro River and head down into the river belt and its lush grasslands and abundant bird life. The nature here is peaceful with a calm dignity. The low hum of the cicadas will remind you of ancient times. You will experience a deep feeling in the core of your very being, living in the moment, in tune with nature. After a refreshing ride with our equine partners you will be treated to a nice boat ride across Lake Arenal, a last opportunity to enjoy the lake and say goodbye before you return to the Majestic Lodge.
Day 8 –Depart Costa Rica or CHOICE ADDITION; Relax in the tropics!
Heading back to San Jose or Liberia in your air con private transfer, the sadness you may feel as you head back home can easily be allayed by getting busy planning your next trip with us!
OR After breakfast choose between the many adventurous activities to do in the Arenal area. Rappelling and canyoning for exhilaration and exercise! Guided hikes through the rainforest and around the volcano, for bird and animal watcher enthusiasts! Butterfly and Reptile Conservatories and much more! Or simply stay at home, enjoy a massage, got to the hot springs, or whatever activity you desire, before having dinner at the return to Majestic Lodge.
As you can see, this is truly a trip of a lifetime that you don’t want to miss. One that you will experience nowhere else. We have very limited space and we are confident that this adventure will sell out very quickly. So if you are interested in joining us, I wouldn’t wait long to make your reservation.

Spectacular scenery, overflowing hospitality, guided horseback rides through the jungle paired with animal communications and Reiki for humans and horse; Anna’s Costa Rica adventure was a dream come true. With gratitude for opening my body, mind, and spirit to a whole new world.
Nancy Z. of El Castillo, CR
Anna is an amazing person and an outstanding teacher with a special gift to share with the world. Her passion and love for what she does to help horses and humans is changing the world. She is such an inspiration and this clinic touched my heart and expanded my awareness of nature, horses, and the connection that we have with one another. I highly recommend Anna’s teachings and can’t wait until my next clinic with her!
Nancy F. of North Lawrence, OH
Costa Rica provided the perfect environment for me to dip my toe in the pool of Reiki knowledge. Anna is a gifted instructor and I would highly recommend this clinic.
Marie S.B. of Pasadena, CA
I attended the Healing in Paradise clinic to learn what Reiki was, work on animal communication, and to ride in the jungle. The surprise was after a session of Reiki on the horses, the little, red trail-horse-mare who I chose as a partner for the week then stood taller, coat shined, and she was more at ease with the other trail horses. I cannot wait to go home and ask my horse if he would like Reiki healing!
Trish M. of South Weber, UT
Coming to the jungle of Costa Rica added the peace and beauty to the Course. I felt it made the Reiki and animal communication connection stronger. The finale of going it the waterfall just gave it that added touch. All the love and laughter within the group gave the love and acceptance that was needed to a few in the group. Joseph and his teaching sessions were wonderful and should be included in future “retreats.”
Taylor M. of Fall City, WA
During this retreat I was introduced to Reiki, animal communication, and horses in a whole new perspective. Coming into the trip I had a lot of horse knowledge but was brand new to the art of energy healing and had very limited knowledge on communicating with animals through anything other than body language. As the retreat comes to an end, I am very appreciative that I had such an opportunity like this and look forward to attending more clinics in the future, as I have much to learn.
Lani S. of Redmond, WA
WOW! This was a truly epic journey in Costa Rica. The extraordinary scenery and wildlife paired with Anna’s exceptional teaching made for a wonderful time. I’m taking truckloads of information and experiences home with me. The memories made at Anna’s Clinic will forever stay with me. I learned so much and will continue to learn along this journey.
