”For the first time ever, I’ll be sharing these powerful teachings in a residential immersion.- Pea Horsley
SIX MODULES OVER SIX DAYS
Learning how to trust yourself and communicate with animals, then be witness to how that impacts on both your personal life and your animal’s lives is beyond what I can put here in words. This experience is to be felt with the heart. It’s profound. It goes deep and changes lives.
Over the course of the training programme I’ll teach you to remember how to have a two-way exchange with other animals, those you love and new friends you’ll meet each day. You’ll learn how to remove self doubt and harness your intuitive ability to enable clear and effective communication that will make animals’ lives happier – and change yours forever.
Exploring and practising 6 core modules by quietening the mind and expanding your awareness through The 5-Step Listen With Your Heart Programme, you’ll leave yourself open to receive the wisdom of the animal teachings.
Animal communication is transformational work that unleashes our power, purpose and potential. It challenges cultural paradigms that limit human potential by reinforcing the self as separate from any living thing. Re-membering our connection as Nature helps us to heal, evolve, and transform ourselves enabling us to be healing conduits for the Animal Kingdom.
”Pea’s guidance is immensely powerful. She had us communicating successfully with animals on day one. I am blown away by what we could do by the end of the course.- Shelia Langan
A Word from Pea
I’m dedicating my life to teaching others how to re-Member back into Nature, as part of her, and to help create healing and harmony in animals lives. This remembering extends to all elements of Nature connection.
I realised very quickly that this requires a kind of unlearning. We’ve been conditioned to believe more in our limitations than our potential.
Based on the concepts from my books Animal Communication Made Easy, Heart to Heart and The Animal Communicator’s Guide Through Life, Loss and Love, I developed this training programme to help people realise their own potential so that they may go on to be a more honest and integral part of the Animal Kingdom and Mother Nature.
(subject to change)
Training begins with the Introduction to Animal Communication and Practice and Development Day including time to question and grow.
Development continues with intermediate modules, Body Scanning and Gestalt and also Remote Viewing which is needed in tracking missing animals.
Progress further with more advanced modules, Empowering Animals teaches you how to perceive your power or totem animals and connect with them for support, protection and guidance with your animal communication.
Training ends with module Life Loss Love, providing a cathartic and enlightening day to learn the animals point of view of dying, death and the afterlife and ultimately empower animal transition.
Pea will present this training in English. Italian translation is available if needed.

CASTELLO GINORI DI QUERCETO
TUSCANY – ITALY
Between 2.00 – 4.00pm, Saturday 4 July

Castello Ginori Di Querceto
Querceto dates back to the 11th century and, unlike many other nearby hamlets, Querceto does not feature on the tourist map, making it a rare jewel of its kind and the perfect place to retreat for quiet animal communication. Preserved as a living hamlet by its owner, the Marquis of Ginori, Querceto is home to 35 permanent residents – an eclectic collection of farmers, writers, athletes, musicians and yogis!
An Ocean of Peace
Querceto is perched on the rolling green hills of the Val di Cecina, on the edge of Tuscany’s largest national park, Monte Rufoli, and at the heart of the Etruscan Coast – where many UNESCO world heritage sites can be found. Surrounded by wild woodland, Querceto also lies just 20 km away from secluded beaches on the Mediterranean sea, making it an ideal location both for mountain fans and beach lovers.
Easy to Reach
International guests can easily reach Querceto by flying into Pisa airport. Alternatively nearby airports include Florence, Bologna and Rome. Both Ryanair and Easyjet fly to Pisa, Bologna or Rome. From any of these airports it is possible to take trains to Cecina, the closest train station to Querceto (you may visit www.trenitalia.it/ to work out your train times). We can organise pick-ups from Cecina station to Querceto with local drivers or taxis (approx. €50 per taxi). Where possible we’ll coordinate taxi shares to be kinder on the planet and wallets.
If you prefer renting your own car so that you may sightsee during spare time we can also recommend a number of car rental companies (as little as €8 per day).
”Learn how to communicate with animals and re-Member your connection with Nature in this idyllic castle hideaway.- Pea Horsley
Environmental & Social Conscience
The venue aims to offer retreats with a social and environmental conscience. As such, they source all of the materials and services required for the retreats as locally as possible, with the utmost respect for the environment and the local community.
All products used during the retreats are organic and eco-friendly (including the pure-rubber yoga mats provided) and all the meals are vegan and free from palm-oil.
Why Vegan? “Because Healing in the Willows, the hosting venue, share the growing understanding that, in an uncontrollable global system of food production, Veganism best embodies the contemporary meaning of Ahimsa [‘non-violence’] – the very first observance of the path to Yoga, which is part of Healing in the Willows’ experiment of uniting the fields of Yoga, Deep Ecology and Animal Rights into a new consciousness.
Moreover, by sourcing as many goods and services locally, they support local business, including neighbouring family-owned organic farms (where they buy all the fresh produce used for the meals), the local organic shops in the towns of Cecina and Volterra (for most of its dry food and bread), and local transport companies for picking-up guests from the local train station.
The very hamlet of Querceto is powered through renewable electricity, generated by the biomass reactor that feeds on the wine and olive-oil by-products produced by the hamlet itself.
Concerned about your travel carbon footprint?
Travel is a wonderful gift and privilege but it comes at a cost to the environment. Here are two things you can do right now to travel more consciously:
- Calculate your trip’s carbon footprint and offset it.
- Donate money toward projects that focus on reversing the effects of climate change.
- Gold Standard is one of the most widely recommended bodies.
- Climate Care turn climate responsibility into positive outcomes.
- South Pole’s carbon footprint calculator is very clear and easy to use.
- Atmosfair in Germany (have a particularly good calculator which rates airline efficiency and includes other greenhouses gases as well as CO2).
OPTIONS FOR ALL BUDGETS: FAIR AND INCLUSIVE
Participant’s lodge in the hamlet’s original and beautifully renovated apartments located in the hamlet’s picturesque square. Apartments vary from 1 to 4 bedroom apartments with single and twin bedrooms (with air-con or fans). Budget-beds (no air-con or fans) and limited VIP 1-bedroom apartments are also available.
All of the apartments have their own lounge, kitchen and dining areas, creating a very homely feeling and allowing guests to find their own space and privacy outside of the classes and shared meals.
VEGAN, ORGANIC, AND LOCAL
The castle works with a number of local cooks. Meals will be vegan, gluten-free (or with gluten-free options), and they usually prepare food inspired by traditional Tuscan/Italian cuisine. We are sorry we can not guarantee a coeliac-friendly kitchen environment.
Three vegan organic buffet meals on training days, plus welcome Saturday evening supper (4th) and farewell Saturday breakfast (11th). Drinks include water (with mint, cucumber, lemon, lime or goji berries) and herbal teas.
The infinity swimming pool is 5 minutes walking distance from the apartments at the end of a path surrounded by olive trees. It’s situated in a charming place with stunning view of the countryside with a small pool house with bathroom and a changing room. The lawn offers loungers and chairs for you to relax and catch some sun. This can be a perfect spot to reflect and integrate everything you are learning.

Prerequisite: Levels 1 & 2, Returning AnimalThoughts student

Students will be given an opportunity to put all of these skills into verified practice. We’ll also look at the reasons why animals go missing, the right questions to ask them when they’re lost and how to also reflect on environmental and personal issues which can impact on animals.
