Animal experiences are in-person field trips around the Puget Sound exploring communicating with wild animals that live or are migrating through this region. They are a combination of in-person animal communication and ceremony open to groups. Learn how much the animals and nature have to share as they whisper their wisdom and discover the universal love in nature.
Nature is the gym to strengthen your intuitive muscle and to learn how to be open and receptive to receiving messages.
Animal experiences will explore: Animals as teachers • How to send and receive messages • Asking questions with curiosity • How to be open and receptive and listening with the whole body and all the senses.
All that is needed from you is curiosity, an open heart and a willingness to learn.

Learn from the Animals: Swift Migration Experience
Sept 6 7:00PM - 8:30PM
Each September thousands of migrating Vaux’s Swifts pause to roost in the old brick chimney at Frank Wagner Elementary School in Monroe, a rest stop on their route from northwestern Canada to Central America and Venezuela. The roost at Monroe is thought to be the third largest in North America, drawing birds by the thousands each evening. In ceremony we will witness this ritual descent into the chimney being open and receptive to teaching from the swifts.
This is an outside experience and will follow the COVID safe guidelines. Masks and social distancing required.
To register. Space limited to 5 participants
Past Animal Experiences
Crows at UW Campus Spawning Salmon Eagles on the Skagit River Heron Rookery
Crows return nightly by the thousands to their rookery on the UW Campus Bothell. The crow is associated with life mysteries and magic. The power of this bird as teacher is provide insight and means of supporting intentions. They invite us to develop our personal will power and speak our truth more loudly. Witnessing the cacophony of this gathering and learn from these incredible teachers!
The salmon spawn and return to Piper's Creek in October and November. Salmon offer wonderful insights, especially how to navigate obstacles of life with determination and ease, and much more. In 2017 the spawning salmon taught about resting and allowing the energy to carry you forward.
The Eagles return from the far north for their winter vacation and to dine on the salmon buffet along the Skagit and Nooksack river. Eagles offer wonderful insights, especially how to feed your body and more importantly how to feed your soul in a way that gives you sustenance to join in the dance of life, and much more.
Herons offer wonderful insights about grounding yourself in the earth as well as seizing opportunities as they arise. Here in Seattle the herons return to create a rookery of nest above the Ballard Locks.
2018 Reflection of Snow Geese and Trumpeter Swan Experience
The Snow Geese Experience was a rich teaching of how to be in a flock and still be an individual. When the birds took flight we could feel a wave of exhilaration and air in our lungs as if we took off with them. We were mesmerized watching the beautiful dance. Many of us took away a new connection to self and how to relate with others with ease and joy. As well as maintain personal space.
This was the best part of my weekend. - Heather
"Being out observing these birds was incredible, and it gave me so many new ideas. From the birds, I learned a lot about myself, and how I can interact better wit those around me, as they did in their flocks." - 16 year old participant
Crows Roosting at UW Campus Bothell 2018 Experience
As dusk darkened the sky was filled with a cacophony of crow calls as crows started coming from all directions. Crows are teachers of developing your willpower and speaking your truth. This was clearly taught in how they flew in all different directions and talked loudly with each other. They are not like a synchronized murmuration of starlings that undulates and flows. This was more of a very individual interactive dance. This is an excerpt from my blog about Learning from 16,000 Crows
I learned about the value of family and how you are always welcomed back - Amy 2018 Participant
