Communicating, Wild Style! Talks with Monkeys, Nina & Darwin

Meet Darwin and Nina!

Jennifer Rice, founder of Kids Saving the Rain Forest asks Anna to check in with two of her special monkeys and they step forward to say “thank you”. They soon discover that Nina misses many moments from the past. Can the changes be made?

Calling All Communicators, and Those Who Want to Learn!

WhiteStallion2019 (002).jpg

This is your chance to be immersed in some of the best horseback riding the world has to offer while you hone your innate ability to communicate with all life!

Watch the sun rise and set over the most spectacular desert scenery you will ever see.  Then, in the evening, after a fun-filled day, relax in your cabin while listening to the coyotes calling in the distance.  All of this while Anna takes you on a journey into the world of animal communication.

In this supportive atmosphere, you will learn to enhance the animal communication skills you already have (even if you don’t know it!) and share in a fun and rewarding experience.  By learning to tap into and use your innate abilities, you will quickly discover how you too can converse with the animals.

Anna has worked around the country and around the world helping individuals to communicate and better understand their animal companions.  With Anna, you will enjoy an interactive conversation with your animal friends, learning their perspectives on situations, behaviors, and life knowledge. Having the opportunity to find out what your animal companion’s thoughts, feelings, and attitudes are can greatly enhance your relationship and bring great joy and happiness to your life.

Take me to heaven in the desert!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love Lessons to Heal the Heart and Soul

One of ROTH’s most popular retreats, Healing Horses at the Historic Bitterroot Ranch in Dubois, WY, came and went in early June.  Dubois is located in the niche below the intersection of two great mountain ranges: the volcanic Absarokas, spilling eastward from Yellowstone, and the southeastward-ranging Wind River Mountains, the tallest mountain range in Wyoming.  Students from across the US gathered amidst the peaks and the Wind River as they mingled with the horses, spending time within the herd, reading the horses’ energies, answering their requests for healing, and helping to interpret their registers.

One of the biggest hits of Anna’s Healing Horses classes is the Love Lessons. When we connect with the horse’s heart chakra, they can express emotion through us that they otherwise would not be able to.  Consequently, we can experience our own healing by being the channel for their emotional release.  Love begets love, and love lessons beget love lessons!

Here are some images from this year’s Healing Horses at the Bitterroot Ranch Retreat along with what our students had to share about their experience:

Learning the life-changing art of Reiki in their incredible, beautiful landscape was, quite simply, transformational.

Donna P. of WV

Authentic connection and magical transformation – this was the result of my reiki experience with Anna Twinney.  Join the tribe/herd and let the magic begin!

Happy S. of CO

Everyone told me this week would change my life…. They were right!  Everyday was life lessons learned, but the most amazing day was the day I gave Reiki to a young Arabian Stallion.  Life-changing!  He taught me so much about being present in the moment and listening!   I know when I get home my horses will thank him.  Blessings to Anna, all the members of my group, and the Bitterroot Ranch!

 

Elena D. of CO

The beauty of the retreat location was matched by the grace and intensity of the teachings.  I am confident I will be bringing back to my ranch a very useful and unique practice for my animals.

Sally W. of MA

What I loved best were the reiki Attunements, which, for me, were the most spiritual aspect of the retreat.  I also loved the opportunity to give Reiki love to the horses while they were in a corral.  (There were many more horses there than I could connect with!)  At one point I was surrounded by 5 horses all wanting Reiki love.

Marilyn S. of MN

To walk into a herd of 80-100 horses and have them choose you…what an exhilarating experience and I will not top that for awhile!  Giving to the horses is amazing!

Richard J. of VA

From staff to clinician, everyone was extremely helpful and informative.  I will be able to use most of all the information in my present employment.  Thank you.

Sydney B. VA

If you ware feeling closed down in our modern world, in this clinic you will feel your heart grow at least 10 sizes BIGGER!  NO MORE GRINCH!  Great for all levels of experience.

Stacey B. of MN

I came to Bitterroot Ranch with Anna here because I truly needed emotional, spiritual and physical healing.  I am so blessed that I got even more than I could have ever expected.  My advice to you would be to trust the flow of how Anna works – that’s what made my life lesson shine through.  The bond and friendship with all the others n the class is priceless.  I am truly healed and this experience has and will change my life forever.  Much love to all here: horses, dogs, staff, friends, others and Anna!

The week began early for our Reiki Master students who arrived in advance for their Master Attunements and to access the new information they would be using out in the world as they begin their journeys as Master Healers.  From selecting oils for attunements to master healing sessions, truly a transformational experience was had by all…even by the curious onlookers.

From our Reiki Master, Christine M. of wherever the wind takes her…

The idyllic setting of the Bitterroot Ranch added to the magic of this wonderful, week-long, experiential retreat.  Being immersed in nature and surrounded by beauty from the moment we stepped out of our gorgeous log cabins was an absolute joy.  Totally loved sharing Reiki with the lovely group of people on the retreat, energy healing with the horses and the spectacle of a 200 odd herd making their way up to higher pastures every evening.  The absolute highlight for me though was receiving the Reiki Master attunement with the energy of the elements all around us and the horses coming in to share their energy and healing as well.  It truly was a remarkable and magical experience.   Heartfelt thanks to Anna for creating this fabulous event.  Would do it again tomorrow!      

Testimonials are in from the Reiki Healing Horses at Bitterroot Ranch Retreat

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!

Laura Z. of Golden, CO

“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!

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.

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.

Take me to Anna’s Oil Page so I can learn more!

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.

Join World-renowned Horsewoman, Equine Behaviorist, Holy-Fire Reiki Master and Animal Communicator, Anna Twinney in Costa Rica in 2018.

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.

It has been a dream of mine to help horses and humans heal globally and Costa Rica brought everything together beyond even our wildest imagination.  Reiki in the rainforest was intensified being surrounded by panoramic views of Arenal’s volcano and lake while exotic birds and wildlife joined us.  Imagine feeling the intensity of the power of the land…. 

This all-inclusive retreat through raging rivers, rainforest rides and up high into the clouds allowed for an extraordinary getaway. Virgins to energy healing the horses changed their expressions, behaviors, and interactions before our eyes experiencing love like no other….nobody walks away from this experience without having been deeply touched and their lives altered.  
 
I feel particularly blessed to have my family join me, to watch worry and stress slip away and my son flourish.  Unforgettable experiences alter a young life immeasurably and we witnessed  “Coyote Joseph” emerge.  Join us on this journey through the rain forest to manifest your dreams.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS ANNA?

“Healing Journey in Paradise” was an amazing clinic that was truly inspirational for all. Working with Anna Twinney was an experience that I will not forget! The participants, most of her former students, were a wonderful group and it was a joy to have such beautiful, animal loving people here to share this week with us! Anna’s method of teaching inspired me to want to continue my work in Reiki with horses and incorporate it into my own program.  It was an amazing feeling to be able to move energy and heal horses and humans with only a few short days of Anna’s guidance. Anna did an Animal Communication session with my dog, Murphy, and she was spot on! We are now working with Murphy’s aggression, based on Anna’s suggestions, and he is doing wonderful! After two years, our employee was able to help us care for him without the fear he previously had. We are thrilled to have had this guidance and are deeply grateful!
 
Anna, Vin, and Joseph feel like family to us and we can’t wait for their return. The Kindred Connections/ROTH experience is a special experience that will change the way you work with animals forever.  ~ Nancy

CONNECTIONS MATTER
Do sloths talk as slow as they move?
You may think there is a direct link between a communication style and a class, but there is not.   Talking to animals as a whole is unique with a common thread named love; talking to primates, reptiles, amphibians is not differentiated by the species itself or indeed the breed, sex, age, size, and character.  One may find a difference on the soul level (young or old soul), intelligence and even subject choice and approach.  This is unique and based on each individual.  Sloths communicate in the same way as others, despite their slow movements. 
12

 

13

With their unforgettable smiles, sloths touch hearts of the young and have most recently been featured in Disney’s movie Zootopia., best known for their slow movements and laid back nature sloths tend to sleep 20 hours a day.  Last February I was asked to connect with an abandoned sloth named Anakin who was struggling physically and had been rescued by Kids Saving the rainforest in Costa Rica.  Anakin’s story was so moving and his life such a tragic struggle, I was inspired to reach out to their president, Jennifer Rice to meet her in-person and offer my services in support of her mission, staff, volunteers and naturally the residents.  We designed our trip around this very visit!

14

“Thanks so much to Anna’s ability to not only communicate with horses but to communicate with wildlife as well.  She has changed the life of a young male Spider Monkey, Darwin, in the Kids Saving The Rainforest Wildlife Sanctuary.
Darwin has been angry, aggressive, and frustrated at times recently and we were at a loss as to how to make his life better.  Anna communicated with him and he knows he was heard and that we are making the changes he needed and wanted.  The change has been miraculous.
It is such a pleasure to see him, he is a new being.  He is calm, serene, and tranquil now.  I never knew that such a change could be possible.  
Thank you, Anna, for making this possible, you are a life changer.

Chewbacca was a three-toed baby sloth that was brought here in December 2015. 
He was the first sloth I got to see up close and we had an instant connection that afternoon. 
Sadly he passed away last June…
 
I approached Anna about him, I wanted to understand how such a deep connection works and what is the message behind that, especially as a biologist. I had never felt like that with any animal, not even a dog, before or after Chewie. 
 
She saw a picture of him and, to be sure it was Chewbacca, she told me something specific about him. She told me we used to stare at each other and I knew it was him, we did that all the time. I would go into the nursery and call him and he would turn his head and stare at me and follow me around. I knew it has to be him. Then she told me to ask something and I just asked her what was the message behind all this grief I still feel and after a few moments, she told me it was pure love, unconditional love. That our connection transcended beyond species and time. She told me he found unconditional love in me -just as I did in him- and she described our relation perfectly. Then she told me about his death that it was unexpected, for both him and me. And that we will not lose that connection, no matter what. 
 
The last thing she told me was that I should wear something that reminds me of him, and she said it should be around my neck or shoulder area, that it was special according to the messages she was getting from him. And it was, he was always in that area when we were together.

Coyote Joseph is on the Search for the Elusive Wood Bug!  Well… Sort of…
One of my greatest joys is watching and nurturing my son’s love and curiosity of nature and animals. While in Costa Rica, bugs, reptiles and amphibians were a big hit!  One of his favorite internet personalities to watch is animal expert Coyote Peterson.  As you can see he is a fast learner and will soon be releasing his own “Coyote Joseph” show.  Stay Tuned.  In the meantime why not help your kids to create their very own nature discovery show.

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!

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.

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.
