“We could not absorb Anna’s gifts of knowledge, wisdom, and inspiration fast enough! We are full of hope, dreams, and renewal after our weekend.  I wish everyone could experience Anna! She has so much to offer. Our 2 day clinic will help our volunteers help our horses in so many ways.  Thank you, Anna.”

“Extremely powerful and paradigm-shifting experience. Anna has a unique gift and helps you tap into yours. I am a professor and taught the best class of my career the week following our clinic with Anna. I was connected in a way I never have been before. Everything clicked. Thank you, Anna.”

“I just want to say how much we have all been changed by your magnificent Anna.  She is awesome, amazing, knowledgeable, supportive, honest, gracious… I could go on but think you get it. Every attendee feels the same way.”

“The two -day exploration of collaborative horsemanship clinic with Anna Twinney was one of the best experiences of my life thus far. The clinic has left me with many wonderful memories that I will cherish for many years to come. Anna was amazing to watch as she worked with our rescue horses. She is a true horse whisperer. I was in awe of her knowledge, confidence, positive energy, compassion, and spirituality. I learned so many wonderful things and now look at these beautiful rescues somewhat differently than before, because I can somewhat understand their language now. I am truly humbled and incredibly grateful to have been a part of such a magical weekend. It is my hope that Anna will return next summer for another soul-filling, beautiful, and amazing horsemanship clinic.”

~Mary Ellen B.

“Thank you all for connecting after the event. It was a fabulous experience sharing our vulnerabilities, energy and love for the horses.

I feel incredibly blessed and grateful to have met you all and to be able to learn from Anna.

Until we all meet again, many blessings, peace, joy and continuous great health.

And to Anna,

Thank you for all you do to teach mindful partnership with horses. I was able to audit one day at Half Halt but I have hopes to make the next clinic in NY with my horse, Destiny. It would be amazing to share this with her. Thanks again!”

~Angela R.

“Dear Friends,

I hope you don’t mind me calling you that.  Not too long ago, for most of us, we were strangers on a group email with names we may not have recognized.  Thanks to Anna, we have come together. Our lives forever changed.  Memories created, raw emotions exposed, storied told, fears uncovered, sharing a forever and unexplained bond with each other and these beautiful and majestic creatures that we love so much.

Anna, thank you for your compassion, honesty, and adaptability to every single horse and handler.  You have a brilliant gift.  Your wisdom and guidance will never be forgotten.

Laura, you planned this event seamlessly.  Every detail was well-thought-out and communicated beautifully!  You are greatly appreciated.

In the words of one of my favorite country artists, “I’ll see you when I see you, and I hope it’s one day soon….”

All my love to all and much-continued success on this amazing journey!”

~ Nancy R.

 

 

“Dearest Anna,

I personally wanted to walk away this past weekend with “tools” to help me build both my and my horse’s confidence. What I got back so much more. Anna, your incredible insight and knowledge helped us all understand that we need to earn the trust of our horses. You offered each of us a bridge to connect with our horses’ hearts! I can’t thank you enough. Words just don’t convey the depth of our gratitude.

Looking forward to when our paths cross again.”

~ Carolyn C.

Follow Up to ‘Urgent Request To Help Save Lives’

PMR foals

Dear Friends of PMR (Pregnant Mare Rescue),
The update is as accurate as I can provide and it isn’t pretty. It is an enormous overwhelming task trying to pull and get to safety JUST the mares in foal, and babies that have just lost their mothers. It is heartbreaking, expensive, and can feel very defeating if not for the community of people like you!

The trappers have finished pulling in the horses, and have given potential ‘purchasers’ Sunday to PHYSICALLY be present to pick up your ‘paid for saves’. Yes, it’s harsh, yes, it’s frustrating, Yes, it happens way to fast with hardly any notice….Ugh…welcome to rescue on the front lines. There are many pregnant mares and soon to be orphaned foals by this Sunday (This means they expect the mares to foal in the next 30 hours and will throw them onto the truck headed for slaughter, and let rescuers keep the babies.) Why can’t we keep the mares too? Room…we need trailers to pick up mares and their newborns. We need funds to pay the ‘meat price’. Babies are a by-product, and a person can fit 6-8 babies in one trailer…This is why the mares lose..Brand new moms never even getting to know their babies.

If you are EAST of The Dakotas and want to help, Call Sarah Robinson (701) 580-5960. She may be able to pick up and lay over horses until you can get to her…or hire help to pick them up.

These horses are located outside Yakima, Washington. They are culled from native american herds, they are small horses, mostly bay, chesnut and greys. If you can drive to pick up…(outside Yakima Washington State) then please call:

Helen Ardire 360 432-3484. She has details. PLEASE only call if you can be certain you are going to be of help:) Perhaps she can recommend haulers to bring horses to you.

We believe in our hearts that every mare in foal deserves to become a mother. We believe that every action taken, every effort made to help these lives is a worthwhile cause.
I hope you can help these lives in the balance.
Thank you for reading, thank you for caring ~ Foaling season is brutal.

Anna works her magic at the Pregnant Mare Rescue

Lyn Hummer, with the Pregnant Mare Rescue in Watsonville, CA, shared the following in her most recent newsletter about Anna’s Animal Communication Workshop there at the beginning of March:

“Life changing communication and connections were made over the weekend during the Anna Twinney workshop. Big shifts in attitude were clearly visible with some of the horses. Read more on the experience!…”

Along the way to finding our peace in the present moment through Animal Communication…

After Anna’s Animal Communication event at the Pregnant Mare Rescue in California, we received a reflection from a student who is near and dear to our hearts.  If two days of Animal Communication can do this for a soul, imagine what a year-long Mentorship Program could do for you….

IMG_1298

“I’m pleasantly surprised by the lingering gift of connection. The house is once again quiet as all the guests have headed home. Routines have returned to normal but a smile lingers as the connection remains. I am fully aware of the busy sparrow jumping back and forth collecting twigs and debris.  She hops across my path picking up the chosen stick. Yes, I am busy like that as well, back to the “daily’s” as I call them. I watch the tiny bird pause and glance my way before taking flight. To my surprise it doesn’t end there. I am part of a moment, receiving and observing messages and “knowings,” as I go about my day. It would seem every action around me has a purpose if I simply let it happen.

I check in with the horses before I must leave for work. I am anxious to visit Grace, a lovely mare that experienced an enormous shift through Anna’s communication session. She is indeed a different horse. Ears forward, welcoming, and interested in my hello, I stroke her serene face. I can feel her satisfaction of having been heard. We, as a group, listened, and as we commit to honoring her requests, her world is forever changed.

On the highway the traffic is rushing through the mountain pass. It’s a familiar commute for many of us. But today it “feels” different. I can sense I am still connected. I remain in the slower lane and enjoy the immense beauty around me. As we slow, in pockets around curves, it is a better opportunity for me to really enjoy the foliage. I have been driving this highway for fifty years and this experience is my first.

My thoughts run to Anna’s words “This is where horses live. They are present.” The weekend workshop opened the door to the knowledge, understanding and experiences available to all of us. Beyond the tremendous benefit of holding the capability of helping and bettering an animal’s life, it presents the way to change our own. This feeling of being connected to all is a leap forward toward inner peace and I know I don’t ever want to go back.”

Best,

Do you want to learn to talk to the animals?  Are they bringing messages to you of which you might be unaware?  How do you interpret those messages and what do you have yet to learn from the animals?  Do you yearn to know more about how they think, feel, and what they want out of life?  Do you want to discover your peace in the present moment that comes with the clarity of connection?

Join Anna for a unique opportunity to have a Master Animal Communicator as your mentor and discover the peace that abides within when we learn to silence the mind and to connect with Source.  Listen.  Can you hear the call?

Learning to Listen to Rescue Animals & Discovering Soul Contracts

AC-Evening-CA.jpg

Begin to Discover your personal power!

Join Anna for an introduction to Animal Communication. You’ll learn in just a few short hours the possibilities that exist when you open your mind, your eyes and your heart to listen to animals in all the ways they communicate with you. From very tangible body language and their very own audible noises to telepathy, Anna guides you into interspecies communication.

Delve Deeper, in Support of Rescues

In this two-day workshop, Anna will help students explore all avenues of Animal Communication with focus on supporting rescue animals. Students will grow in their intuition, their ability to observe and to discern messages in all their formats. Beyond this, the realization that our animals have a life’s purpose just as we do will come to light. Students will begin to understand that animals are often reflecting to us what we need, not only to help them, but often for self-actualization for you. Even more beautiful and magical is the soul connection and contract that can be revealed when one truly endeavors to open heart, mind, and spirit to our animal companions.  

Reiki Energy Healing for Horses was a HIT!

Once a year in Colorado Anna selects a rescue or therapy barn where she chooses to give back to the horses with her Reiki for Horses class.  This year ROTH landed at Drifter’s Heart of Hope in Franktown, CO, and luckily so.  Thanks go, in particular, to Jacqui Avis, who manages the facility, because she was an integral piece in our success as she pointed us to the horses who had the needs and the capability to be a part of the class.  To Jacqui and her lovely staff of volunteers, thank you for making this class go off without a hitch!

Reiki Healing is about reciprocity, compassion, love and light. Literally it is the subject matter at hand, and the students practice their craft as they develop the skills necessary to evaluate, interact, and support horses energetically.  We ask so much of our horses from day to day, and supporting them with Reiki is an imperative part of maintaining their physical and emotional well being.

As I walked the aisles and rows of horses and got details on their histories, it became immediately apparent that the ONLY other destination for most of these horses would have been the kill pen.  Some may have better chances than others because their rehabilitation is more mental and emotional than physical, or vice versa, but it was obvious that the hearts of the people behind Drifter’s are indeed Hearts of Hope.

We wanted to share some of our images with you all so you can see what a great day we had and to promote the idea of giving back to those horses who support us without question, and sometimes without option.

The morning began in the indoor, after the lecture of course, and students were assigned horses on whom they needed to determine the state of each Chakra and then go to work to balance them.

Some horses are much more receptive to hands-on Reiki while others received “beamed” Reiki healing for their comfort.  A lucky pair of students were even joined by a friend of the Feline family to soak up the “borrowed benefit” of a healing energetic environment.

Students worked on learning how to determine when a horse wants them to move from one Chakra to the next, what is a yes and what is a no, asking permission, watching for the registers of successful energy healing, and how to determine when the horse shares that they have received all the Reiki they need and the healing session is over.

IMG_6881

No pony is too small to receive healing energy!  Glitter certainly enjoyed her time to shine and took a solid nap during her healing session.

Christine worked on Horris the mule, who joined us after many years of belonging to a driving team in the mountains.  When we approached Horris’ stall to bring him in he was apprehensive, to put it mildly; however, once Horris experienced our intention and the power behind the Reiki Healing Energy, he became our resident “Reiki Junkie” and even appeared later in the afternoon for a second session, this time entirely willingly!  The grey gelding, Sarge, was another who was concerned about our intentions for his otherwise sleepy Sunday.  But after about 10 minutes he could feel the difference in what we were doing and happily obliged by relaxing for over two hours.

After lunch there was more instruction in the classroom and then we headed to the pastures, paddocks, and stalls to work on horses in a more natural environment.  Anna calls these “Love Lessons,” where we connect directly with the horse’s heart Chakra and allow them to use us as a vehicle to express their emotions that otherwise might not have an outlet.  Horses cry tears through our students, and it’s not entirely about us healing them, because plenty of students walk away from the Love Lessons feeling entirely transformed and healed themselves.

Anna began with a brief demonstration on a black gelding and then students moved into the paddocks and pastures and allowed the horses to choose with whom they wanted to engage in healing.  Some took wild advantage of student after student, and others focused on one person in particular who they preferred.  Some horses even chose to refrain altogether, and remained at their feeder while allowing others to receive the healing they needed.  That is always ok, because each horse has a say in their own healing.

As horses can feel the difference in a true Holy Fire and Karuna Reiki Master, some of the horses chose to try to monopolize Anna’s attention for their own benefit.  Anna is always happily amused to receive their affection!

Toward the end of the Love Lessons we headed to one last set of pastures where some of the horses from our morning sessions go to afternoon turn out.  One in particular who was reluctant to be brought in for the morning sessions (until he realized how exactly his day was shaping up) figured out that he had yet another opportunity to soak in the healing love.  ROTH student, Sharon Tiraschi, then called Sarge and Mariah in from turnout with only her heart.  Both horses queued up for their opportunity to experience the Love Lessons from Sharon.  It was a beautiful transformation for Sarge from the morning to the afternoon.

IMG_7030

And many others were sought out for their Love Lessons and eternally compassionate souls.  Truly all who participated at Drifter’s were healed and healers alike.

 

Again, we would like to thank Drifter’s Hearts of Hope in Franktown, Colorado, for the use of their lovely facility and the benefit of working with their wonderful horses. Our gratitude to Manager, Jacqui Avis, for all her help and guidance in helping us choose horses and best utilize the facility.  We would also like to thank the students who put their faith in the horses to show them, guide them, and teach them what they need to learn, and they did.  ROTH students often come from far and wide to join us on these events and then they carry the message back home with them in an attempt to help humans with horses understand what it is to truly support and give back to the animals we love and who routinely give us their all.

To ROTH Certified Trainer, Jill Haase, thank you for helping move such a large number of horses and for helping keep eyes peeled to keep students safe who were not necessarily experienced horse people.  And thanks be to Jill for always keeping it light and keeping the laughs and the smiles rolling, because why not?

Lastly, THANK YOU, to Anna Twinney.  Your mission coming to life in this way must make you proud and I hope you smile when you think of the breadth and depth of your reach within the lives of horses and their people.  Your sacrifices and hard work do not go unnoticed.  For someone with the soul of a true healer, you have a warrior spirit and dedication to spreading the messages of love, compassion, and clear communication everywhere you go.  Thank you for being you, Anna!
