Animal Communication workshop - Salisbury Centre, Edinburgh


This weekend workshop will help you rediscover your innate telepathic communication skills, and develop your natural intuition and ability to communicate with other species. During the weekend you will learn the principles and techniques of interspecies communication, how animals express themselves and how to receive and send messages effectively.

You will also explore the many ways that interspecies communication can be applied, including deepening your understanding and connection with the animal companions that share your life, supporting animals in times of change, helping rehabilitated animals, identifying and working with physical ailments, and working with 'behavioural issues'. If you have animals in your life, whether as companions or as part of your work, interspecies communication can support and facilitate your interspecies relationships to be more harmonious and more effective.

Jacqueline Buckingham and Lesley Downie have been leading Animal (Interspecies) Communication workshops together for three years.  They have both been trained and mentored by renowned animal communicator, Anna Breytenbach, and they regularly lead weeklong residential workshops at the Findhorn Foundation in north east Scotland. 

Jacqueline has been communicating with animals and plants since she was three years old. In the intervening years she has studied with a variety of indigenous elders whose teachings have deepened her connection with, and understanding of, the natural world. In 2011 she went to live at the Findhorn Foundation community in Scotland where she first met Anna Breytenbach in 2012, and they began working together in 2013. They continue to collaborate and In December 2017 Jacqueline led an Animal Communication Safari in Namibia on Anna's behalf.

Jacqueline regularly leads weekend and weeklong interspecies communication workshops in Australia and the UK, as well as advanced animal communication workshops and retreats in the UK.  Jacqueline is also a Reiki master teacher and a Transpersonal Art Therapist.  www.understandinganimals.org

Lesley grew up with a deep love of nature. Her listening and communication practice developed through craniosacral healing with babies and adults, body work, co-creative gardening at Findhorn and by following her curiosity in the wild. It is rooted in respect for the intelligent awareness in all life. Lesley has been tutored and mentored in interspecies communication by Anna Breytenbach both in Scotland and in African wilderness.

She is passionate about supporting humans to reach beyond the ‘people centred’ culture and to become a voice for the others in this more than human world.
