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!

ROTH Certified Trainer/Instructor Elaine’s Account of How to Best Begin to Capture the Whisper

Words of Wisdom from the ROTH Trainer/Instructor who conducted Horse Whispering 101:

There are a great many levels to horsemanship, but we all start at the beginning. And it is where we begin that we either have to build upon or to overcome.  By this logic it would be much more efficient to start from a place that won’t cause you to back track.  It is the minority who have their first experiences with horses taught with the horse in mind; whether it be a simple riding lesson that is entirely in the saddle with little to no bonding from the ground, or a child growing up on a ranch with less concern for the well-being of the animals, there are long-standing professionals who never know what is literally and physically under their noses… and their butts.  They will have a longer way around to the truth than someone who is shown the potential of equal partnership from the gate.

But even if you are in the thick of the old way of working horses and you had an experience that caused fear around horses, or you seemed to have waited a lifetime to make that first touch, it is a great time to start listening and to let the truth sink in.  Horse whispering isn’t a mystical power; it is not granted to a select few. It is something with which we are all born. It is compassion and it is love.  Our stories will, at times, either try to pull us away or they will guide us towards this way of being.  It is our responsibility to reach for the betterment of all in the process.

It was an honor to help five amazing women find this truth as they embarked on a new chapter of working with horses. Teaching the Horse Whispering 101 Course this year at Happy Dog Ranch, in Littleton, CO, was a magical week of wonder and joy. The horses and the team at the ranch helped to facilitate the journey and make real change in the lives they so graciously hosted.

Nothing but gratitude to Anna and Vin for making it all possible,

Elaine Ackerly

Christine Matthews Shares about Her ROTH Internship

Internship at ROTH

 

When Anna and Vin initially suggested I return to Colorado to do a 3 month internship at the ROTH Ranch after completing HHC, my first thought was what a wonderful opportunity it would be to learn so much more.  My second thought was “F$%&!  Me?  An intern?  They must have either had too much Costa Rican sun, got the wrong person, or forgotten that I’d only just managed to overcome my fear around horses enough to get a halter on – well, half on – without desperately seeking the nearest fence to vault over – or perhaps crawl under would be more apt!  Of course, they hadn’t and my time with them has been wonderful.

The goal was to have more handling experience, and to become more familiar with the day-to-day running of a horse ranch: feeding, pasture management, fencing, being present for equine professional visits (farrier, chiropractor… etc.) and, of course, getting to know the horses, their needs and understanding the dynamics of the herd a little more.  My greatest challenges were fear, of which I still had a sizeable amount, and the belief in myself that I could actually achieve what was required in an internship, particularly the physical requirements.  I developed a very effective stalling strategy when doubt or fear crept in called “I can’t!”  Anna, thankfully, had an even more effective counter-strategy called “Yes, you can!”  She was right!!  I could!

Honey and I

I have learned so much and as it is with the most valuable kind of learning, this has been on many levels.  I also know there is much more to learn.  My fear has diminished greatly in comparison to what it was and without it getting in the way so much I have been able to experience the joy of “being” with the herd and “seeing” them in a way I wasn’t able to before.  I feel great gratitude for this, for what the horses have shown me about myself, and for the healing this has brought.  Great gratitude, too, goes to Anna and Vin for the bestowing of their knowledge, their unwavering support, and the amazingly good humor shown as a strange Kiwi/Brit blundered about within their lives and all over their property!  Even more gratitude goes to the universe for instigating everything and for keeping everyone, human, equine and canine, alive and intact, while that blundering went on!!!  It has been ……………amazing!

Breakthroughs, Insights, and New Understanding During Animal Communication in the UK

18425129_1437164346344850_1207024097775476172_n

Anna concluded her 3-Day Animal Communication Workshop in Sowerby Bridge, Yorkshire, UK, on the 14th of May.  A few of the participants were willing to share their discoveries and new understanding to help get the word out about Animal Communication and how it can help change perspectives and open hearts!

 

From Jill H. of Redmond, WA:

With my daughter graduating high school in June and thoroughly immersed in her ROTH Trainers Program, we decided to head to England for the first time to enjoy an animal communication weekend with Anna.  Although I had participated in single-day clinics and several webinars, I felt I was missing bits and pieces of animal communication – critical bits and pieces.  Perhaps a weekend devoted to animal communication in the iconic hills of England would jump start my abilities.  It was quite possibly sitting amongst those beautiful, gentle, British accents, or being on land so filled with history and leaving my world behind in the States that lead to several breakthroughs in my animal communication experience.

I have been surrounded by animals of all shapes and sizes for many years.  Animals have always been part of my family.  Operating an animal-focused, summer day-camp in the Seattle area has allowed me to share my love and curiosity of the animal kingdom with many others.  I could connect with animals I knew. I could enter their realm to a degree, yet I never sensed they might communicate back to me in a shared language.  I would just know things about them but never experienced anything like a conversation back and forth.

In England, it dawned on me (through much instruction and shared reflection) that I was never really starting a conversation with them like I would another person or child.  Taking off their animal mask and imagining I was talking to the spirit of another being allowed the beginning of what Anna calls flow, the flow of shared information.  I then experienced how to start a conversation for the first time.  By starting with a gentle introduction, getting a feel for the individual, and by curious and creative use of direction/questions, I experienced a sensation of a more intertwined matrix of information that was available, as opposed to a tennis match – back and forth with force.

I often wondered if I could really see in pictures as often discussed in the animal communication clinics in which I had participated.  Maybe because I had never really opened any communication I rarely saw images or visual clips.  But sitting in the Yorkshire hills I was reminded that I do.  James Herriot’s books had long been a favorite, and I had read it many times over.  Here I was, sitting in the backdrop I had long ago seen in my mind.  I do see in pictures in my mind, it’s the real joy of reading.  If I can create imagery then I can receive it as well!

Discovering these nuances of animal communication allowed me to also experience just how dominant my left brain processes can be.  Once I do seek information in a more traditional question-and-answer pattern, I leave the shared matrix and communication stops.  So for now, we have short conversations, but not for long… Thanks to the lovely English folks, beautiful and historic scenery, and Anna’s expert guidance, my communication journey has begun anew!

Sue P. from York, UK:

My experience of Anna’s Workshop at Sowerby, Yorkshire, UK

All my life I have been interested in animals and I’ve always had very rewarding relationships with them.  When younger, at one time, I wanted to be a vet so that I could work with animals but that didn’t work out.  Now that my office-based working career is coming to an end, I decided that I wanted to get back to my first love and work with animals.  I’ve been volunteering at my local animal shelter for about a year now and love the bonds I have with the animals there.

Last year a couple of my very good friends told me about their experiences on a workshop in animal communication with Anna and suggested I attend her UK workshops in May 2016.  I was fascinated but Anna’s ability to give a voice to the animals but wasn’t sure I could do the same.  However, following the workshop I noticed that animals I met were more interested in me than before so I signed up for this year’s workshop near Sowerby in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

My experience this time was very different.  Suddenly, in doing the exercises that Anna gave us, I realised that the animals were as keen to communicate with me as I was to listen to them.  My perspective on animal communication has changed totally in the last twelve months and especially after the workshop.  I am still buzzing with the success I had with the exercises on the weekend workshop and Anna’s great feedback to me.  I will now definitely be taking my new skills forward and progressively honing and building on them.  I’m not sure how that will play out yet but I know that it will.

I thank Anna so much for making her annual trip over to the UK from the US where she lives and for her part in helping me to realise and acknowledge my skills in animal communication.  With the help of Anna and the fabulous group of people on the workshop I am in a great place on my journey and so happy to be so.

 

 

Sarah E. from Sheffield, UK:

My animal communication experience:

I first met Anna in 2010 when she traveled over to examine myself and another student for our instructor exams.

The next day Anna was delivering private animal communication sessions and asked me if I wanted to sit in. I have to admit my initial thought was “what a crock of s##t”, but boy how wrong I was!

Anna was connecting with a horse that I had previously done a one-off session with that had a mounting issue. To cut a long story short I trained the horse to listen to the neck strap from the floor then on board. He didn’t like any rein contact at all because of an old tongue injury.

As Anna was communicating with him, as she does with her fingers in her ears and I had to stifle a giggle, she reached over to me and touched my arm and said “he liked what you did with the neck strap that really helped him.”  This blew me away and I was stunned. This impromptu session with the horse was not known to anyone else, so HOW COULD ANNA KNOW?

So 7 years later I decided (pluck up the courage) to find out more. I already knew how to be around horses. I had worked with many different ones with different problems or phobias, but the energy work on the first day was amazing and so visual for me. I knew the horses were masters of non-verbal communication and would read our energy and intention behind it.

The exercise I really liked and will use in my work with people and their horses are the dowsing rods. It showed my own energy field to be small, which could work for me or against me. I had to work hard to increase my energetic presence but not hard at all to draw it in. I learned how to make mine bigger by my thoughts and project it out, which by the way I thought I was already able to do.

This is a great visual for people to help them see why their energy field could be getting in their way; too much presence or not enough. By this I am not only thinking about with the horses or other animals, but how that can impact everyday life when they meet someone for the first time. What does their energy say about them?  Does it enter the room before them?  Or do we not notice them enter?  What fun I can have with this.

Thank you, Anna, for three inspiring days,

Sarah

 

Lani S. of Redmond, WA:

When my Mom told me on the way to school one day that she wanted to go to England, I was a bit hesitant.  It would only be a week until we would take off from Washington State for the U.K. I had to decide whether or not to go.  I only had two hours to decide. I was pretty close to saying no because of the last-minute idea.  Now, I am happy we went. Being able to meet people in the great country of England, immersing myself in animal communication, and just being reminded of the powerful energetic connections between human and animals was incredible.
At the young age of seventeen, I have been able to meet people from multiple countries all around the world through Reach Out To Horses clinics.  I had so much fun getting to know the lovely group of people from England.  When I make connections with people from the country I am visiting it makes a greater impact.  Involving myself within the local people helps me understand the land and culture, allowing me to enjoy the new place I am visiting in a deeper way.  Instead of watching in wonder at the habits of a different country, you can learn from the people about the do’s and don’ts of their culture.  Spending my first three days in England with people who call it home helped me appreciate and understand the country.  I think I enjoyed the rest of my trip more because of the wonderful people I met at the clinic.
Since the first time I was introduced to animal communication, I was in awe that I could actually communicate with the animals I spent so much time with. I have done multiple animal communication clinic days and webinars with Anna, each time gaining more experience and making progress.  It is now, after our clinic in England, that I understand the importance of quieting the mind.  I have heard it many, many times and never understood how I could ever get my mind to quit bouncing thoughts back and forth.  I guess through practice I finally learned how to think about one thing at a time and truly settle the activity.  I didn’t realize that I had started to quiet my mind until I looked back on recent animal communication practices.  I had one session earlier this year while attending ROTH’s retreat in Costa Rica that left me feeling like I could maybe receive information from the animals.  England was my first time back at it.  I was extremely happy when I again got validated on information I received from the animal.  It was a great validation for me that I am making progress even though it can feel very slow at times.
Another thing that stood out to me was how much of a self-discovering journey learning animal communication is.  Learning how you interpret things, and how you feel things, and how you see, or hear the incoming information is an incredible journey in and of itself.  I have felt things all my life and to me my sense of feeling is almost like my sight.  Starting to learn what my feelings in animal communication mean has also helped me interpret those feelings in my life.  I have just started being able to put words to images and feelings I am receiving and I am learning what each little bit of information means.
From muscle testing to love lessons, I always love when I am immersed and reminded of the energetic connections between humans and animals.  Connecting to each on a deep level below the superficial is incredible.  You can see action being utilized to give back to one another. During the clinic in Yorkshire, I was able to connect through Reiki energy healing to a horse and share time together.  I don’t have words for the peaceful moments we spent together heart to heart, simply sharing space and connecting.  It was mutual and we both gave back to one another.
I had a fabulous time spent with amazing people and equally amazing animals.  I learned a lot.  I am very happy that we traveled all 6,000 miles to Yorkshire, England, to participate in the clinic taught by Anna.  I went on to enjoy other parts of England with fond memories looking back.  So much fun was had and I truly appreciate the opportunity that arose for myself and everyone else in the clinic.

Thanks to everyone for joining Anna in her home country of England for an exciting workshop to give the animals a voice, and to spread the word about animal communication.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Giving The Horses a Voice in Fall City, Washington

Giving Our Horses a Voice

By Jim “Hutch” Hutchins, Director of Education, NWNHC

Our horse has no voice if we do not listen. This is one of my favorite quotes and the main reason I have had Anna Twinney bring the Reach Out To Horses program to the Northwest Natural Horsemanship Center (NWNHC) for the last three years.  Listening is not just trying to figure out what our horse wants, but understanding him holistically and “hearing” what he has to say.  Again this spring Anna helped us all become more in-tune with our horses with an amazing mix of animal communication, TLC, liberty and driving training.

In just three days, twenty-one students and auditors found in themselves and their horse new levels of understanding, knowledge and growth.  But most importantly…progress.  It was amazing to see horses and humans take incredible strides in resolving issues, balancing their horse’s emotions and creating an active, two-way conversation.  In the liberty and driving sessions there were many emotional moments. There was nary a dry eye when a long-neglected horse finally found it had a voice and partner in its new owner.  And the new owner found the potential she knew the horse had.

For the first time, we also had an evening workshop on animal communication.  The thirty-three participants included horse enthusiasts and pet lovers who wanted to better understand inter-species communication and how it can help them with their animal relationships.  As anyone who has done an animal communication class with Anna can tell you, we learned to be more in touch with our own sensitivity and how to interpret and channel the “sixth sense” we all feel at times.

Thank you, Anna, for opening our minds and our hearts.  And thank you for helping us truly give our animal companions a voice.

Testimonials from the Animal Communication Mentorship Tier III Mentees Detailing Their Experience Thus Far

AC class

Christine M. of Tadworth, Surrey

Really fabulous few days!  For me, knowing yet another group of humans have participated in one of Anna’s Animal Communication classes and will leave with the knowledge and understanding of what it truly means to be a voice for animals, is a joy!  It is also a joy to be one of those humans.

Cathy L. of Terryville, CT

Wanting more…  After a lifetime of working with horses I found myself still wanting more.  Six days of connecting with animals with an amazing group to study Animal Communication was a dream come true.  By learning to connect directly with the animals’ thoughts I have expanded my own belief in what is possible.  Anna, you’ve always provided the “more.”  Thank you!

Melody S. of Middleton Springs, VT

When I received the information online of this course I was so interested yet could not see how I could fit it in my schedule.  A few weeks went by and I received another notice that there was only one spot left.  A voice immediately spoke in my head that I HAD to sign up for this course right now.  Needless to say I am enjoying the company of my dear friend, Anna, and her lovely family on this first week.  Also, meeting the incredible, diverse group of animals and people and gaining insight from all of them.  What I have always appreciated about Anna is her ability to reach each person within a group and slightly modify the composition of the day to meet each one’s need.  We have all gained so much depth and insight this week. My deepest gratitude!

 For me the Animal Communication Mentorship Class is an opportunity to reignite, deepen and expand understanding.  I am so appreciative of Anna’s innate gifts that she so readily shares with those who are willing to delve deeper and work toward goals.  Our week has been enriched by the animals and the people in our circle, and I look forward to the progress we all will be making as we learn our own accents and language in this work.  I am so excited to continue with the grace and support of all.

 

Gina K. of Centennial, CO

 This week has been the most eye-opening experience felt on every level of who I am as a living creature- physical, emotional, spiritual, and energetically.  This week will truly change my journey with animals and I am very excited to see how that looks.

 

Lauren W. of Wilmington, NC

 This class is very intensive.  It’s very important that the participant stay focused and not give up.  It is hard but well worth doing.  I am very pleased I stayed with it and am very happy with the outcome.  I learned so much and have so much more to learn!

 

Teresa P. of Seffner, FL 

My experience with the Anna Twinney Animal Communication Mentorship Program has been nothing less than positive.  The days were very informative, eye-opening, and well-timed.  The time was utilized to the maximum so that the schedule was not lacking, but over-energized by the wealth of knowledge being shared by Anna.  The knowledge being shared was key in the sharing department, her heart was open and pouring forth and inspiring to all class members.  I am forever grateful and humbled by the world and wisdom that Anna Twinney has introduced me to.

 

Patricia H. of Cody, WY

 Where do I begin with what I have learned during the last 6 days?  As always I have never been disappointed with one of Anna’s classes.  I have learned to be open to all possibilities, to listen to my heart, my intuition, realize that sometimes things are on a case-by-case basis.  I am never disappointed with the depth, breadth, and tremendous amount of knowledge that Anna has and is so willing to share with those who are willing to learn.  Thank you, Anna!

 

Beth V. of Richfield, MN

 Anna has great intuition about what to teach in her classes, and how to teach it.  She knows what her class is ready to accept and opens their eyes a bit more each time.

 

Rob S. of Cottage Grove, MN

 I took Anna’s Animal Communication Course with no experience in Animal Communication.  Anna didn’t tell or direct me in how to communicate to animals.  I followed/discovered my own direction by listening to Anna and the others in the class.  This allowed me to build my own method that challenged me to be my best and remove the fears of moving forward.

 

Cheryl M. of Vancouver, BC

 Anna’s Animal Communication Mentorship Program is an extraordinary experience.  The experiences in this comprehensive training class are designed to help you discover your specific Animal Communication language as well as build your confidence.  Anna creates a learning environment that is supportive and encouraging, allowing you to explore your individual talents.

 

Susan H. of Chadron, NE

 I absolutely LOVED the class.  Anna’s teaching methods and her years of experience allows the student to recognize and build on their own gifts and style of Animal Communication.

 

Natalie M. of Los Altos, CA

 I am opening up to the endless possibilities that Animal Communication reveals.  It is a life-changing experience and I know now nothing is impossible.  The animals will lead you on an amazing journey and are so appreciative.

 

Marcia R. of Markham, VA

 Anna gives such a thorough experience and overview of Animal Communication that she really helped me figure out where I belong.  Each exercise shows you what works and what doesn’t.  Anna also does a great job of honoring everyone’s different style.  She pulls you forward without putting you in a box, MAGIC!  I know that for myself, her teaching style and expertise is a perfect fit.

 

Pam C. of Madrid, IA

 The time spent with Anna and class members has helped me to learn what I have to do to connect with an animal and to receive details with validation.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Tropical Dream Come True – The ROTH Newsletter in Paradise

1

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!

“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.
