Animal Communication Apprenticeship

Foundation Level One : Animal Communication Apprenticeship

Learn the art of animal communication within a nature spirituality framework. Deepen your connection to the natural world, the Otherworld and the plant and animal kingdoms.

Foundation Studies – Level One encourages you to develop your own earth-based spiritual practice – developed freely in your own way – and will also give you the basic tools with which to develop your animal communication skills. It is a self-paced/self-study experiential course designed to help you train your awareness so that you can hold a thought conversation with an animal. By the end of the Foundation Studies Level Two you will be able to practice animal communication with animals of friends and family. By completing the Advanced Level & Diploma, you will have reached an advanced level of attainment and will be able to practice professionally as an animal communicator.


Foundation Level One usually takes around SIXTEEN weeks to complete. At the end of Level One, you are invited to organise a 1:1 private tutorial with Susie to discuss your progress.

Level One consists of:

-gentle experiential exercises that you can carry out at home as well as outdoors in your local area
-an ongoing journaling and meditation practice and self-reflective exercises
- 1 x 1/2 hr private tutorials
-other apprentices with whom to practice your animal communication skills

By the end of the course you will have:
-Deepened your own spiritual practice
-Deepened your connection to the natural world including the animal kingdom
-Begun to safely develop your ‘second sight’
-Been introduced to the Dragon’s Egg: a map of the cosmos as a way towards balance and wholeness
-Learned how to make a link with an animal so that you can begin to communicate with them
-Been given the tools to communicate with an animal so that they can truly hear you
-Learned how to link with an animal just from a photograph
-Learned how to link with living animals
-Learned how to scan an animal to find out information about health issues
-Gained the foundation upon which to pursue further study.

Level One can be experienced as a course in its own right.
Those wishing to use the Foundation Level One as a stepping stone to a deeper immersion into animal communication and communion with nature through the Apprenticeship programme will need to successfully complete all Level One assignments. This will enable them to be considered for further in-depth training. Some apprentices may wish to pursue the Animal Communication Apprenticeship to Diploma level in order to practice as a professional animal communicator. Upon receipt of the Diploma, Apprentices are then free to join the Council of Animal Ambassadors and receive on-going support from the College of Seership.

The Animal Communication Apprenticeship is a journey into the amazing world of animal communication and will bring you closer to the incredible community of other beings with whom we share our planet.
Learning the art of animal communication is life-changing. Through persistent practice you will acquire skills that you maybe only ever dreamed of acquiring and that may wholly alter your perception of animals and how they think and feel.
Animal communication is part of seership in general and in learning all forms of seership, we must always remain apprentices. This is why I use the word ‘apprenticeship’ to describe the process of learning animal communication. To become as accurate as we can be, we must never ‘arrive’ but must instead always strive to hone our skills in myriad ways. To ‘arrive’ would be to lose the humility required to do the job.
By learning the art of animal communication, we are necessarily laying the foundation for all forms of seership and for that reason I firmly believe it is wise to learn it within a nature-based spiritual practice. To learn any form of seership, we must enlist the aid of a higher power for protection and safety as well as come into right relationship with nature, the Otherworld and the animal kingdom. Often our ethics are challenged just as in old tales.
Nature spirituality teaches balance and harmony and a deep love and respect for the ‘wild’ and for nature.
