A story of animal communication and compassion

Listening to Zoo Animal Ambassadors Field Trips and Teleclasses

Harbor Seal with Neave and Katie ©Rose De Dan

Zoo Animal Ambassadors have invited us to listen to their perceptions and connect with them as spiritual beings through local field trips and worldwide teleclasses. For this unique 5-part class series I will be sharing with you the basic techniques and exercises that I use before, during and after a zoo visit to properly introduce myself, initiate an interaction or conversation with the animals, and create ceremonies. While this class focuses on zoo animals the techniques learned support and facilitate communication and connection with all species—domestic to wild. …Continue reading

The Gift of the Animals: Stories, Perceptions, Shamanic Journeys is a unique 4-part teleseminar series hosted by three humans and the wild animals of Earthfire Institute (living and in spirit). The animals would like to help us shift back into connection with them. In order for that to happen we need to view the world through their eyes for a moment—to shift to their way of perceiving. …Continue reading

Messages from Watoto the Elephant

Elephant Profile, ©Debbie Noyes 2013

That morning the keepers at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle had found her collapsed in her outdoor exhibit. Efforts to try to get her back on her feet failed. Her condition worsened, and the humane decision was made to euthanize her.

I was saddened when I heard the news that day, and I knew that many others would be as well, including Chai and Bamboo—her elephant companions.

But Watoto’s passing brought up more than just sadness in others—it re-ignited the touchy issue of whether elephants should be kept in captivity at the Woodland Park Zoo (or in captivity at all, anywhere).

But Watoto had her own message to share. …Continue reading

Animals Love Reiki at Mud Bay

Rickie says 'thanks for the Reiki'

On October 12, I offered a Reiki demonstration for animals at Mud Bay in West Seattle. I had a wonderful time with all the people and their dog and cat companions. The energy was flowing, and all the animals went from nervous (or highly energized in the case of two puppies) to calm and relaxed. It is hard to pick a favorite since they were all such good Reiki recipients. …Continue reading

My guides feel it is important to keep the energy rolling, so they have had me schedule three different teleclasses all beginning the third week in October.

This summer I went on a whale watch with Island Adventures.

Before leaving my house I was told to place a copy of the book Sightings: The Grey Whales’ Mysterious Journey under my mesa (shamanic healing bundle). I thought this rather curious since it was not migration season …Continue reading

Manitou and the Shamanic Photoshoot

Manitou Front Porch ©2014 Rose De Dan

It was a hot summer day and the sun was strong. The opened umbrella cast the perfect shadow over the shamanic still life, and to my dismay Manitou stepped up on the garden bench and sat down with an expression of complete contentment. As far as he was concerned I had just supplied him with the perfect shade from the heat of the sun. I fully intended to shoo Manitou away, but for some reason I kept on taking pictures. …Continue reading

Wolf Messages

Gray Wolf Spruce Adds Voice to Group Howl at Wolf Haven Int'l, ©2014 Rose De Dan

We were just speaking of the relationship of the wolves with the bison in Yellowstone and the very important balance that is maintained in the ecosystem by predators when suddenly all the wolves and the two coyotes began to howl. I had a very strong sense that they were singing that message of balance as well as adding their prayers to ceremony. It was a very sacred moment. …Continue reading

The Spirit of Giving

Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing Paw Print Tile at Woodland Park Zoo

A year or two ago I was reading an email request from the Woodland Park Zoo for donations for their Malayan Tiger exhibit, which was in the planning stages.

Donations would help with building, conservation efforts (there are fewer than 500 in the wild) and education.

Donors would be honored with a name and paw print in the …Continue reading

I frequently mention on my blog just how much animals love Reiki, but this photo of Reiki recipient goat Annabelle is worth a 1000 words.

In Honor of Able Seacat Simon and Other Animal Heroes on Memorial Day

Able Seacat Simon

Since ancient times many different species of animals have also served bravely. While I deplore the need for war, I am deeply moved by the efforts of the animal heroes who have served alongside the human warriors. A few of those animals have been officially recognized as war heroes. …Continue reading

Manitou and the Molehill Gang

Manitou, Grass Tiger, ©2014 Rose De Dan

Last fall my backyard was undergoing a plague of moles—or perhaps it was simply one very industrious mole. Molehills littered the yard and the brazen inhabitant of the one closest to the house would commence renovations literally at my feet as I sat reading.

Lots of research resulted in my …Continue reading

So, you want to talk to animals…

Rose De Dan and Friesian Dante share a moment, Serenity Equine Rescue ©2013 Debbie Noyes

Many people tell me they wish they had my gift of talking to the animals and connecting with them. I always say that everyone can do it. It only takes practice, a dedication to personal healing (clearing what clogs your perceptual filters), and a willingness to listen and trust (and that’s where the practice comes in—over …Continue reading
