Spirit Animals as Messengers, Guides & Teachers

Oct 19, 2018
Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY
Learn to identify and get to know your animal spirit guides, and begin to receive the inspiration and protection they are happy to offer you.

Animal spirit guides are spiritual beings that can help us in a life-positive way. We can call on them for guidance, protection, healing, and inspiration. We may see them, hear them, feel them, or just know they’re with us, and we can have any number of spirit guides throughout our life—whether we’re aware of them or not.

In this experiential workshop, best-selling author Steven D. Farmer shares key lessons to help bring your animal spirit guides into your daily life. You learn how to:

  • Identify an animal spirit guide and learn the difference between animal spirit guides, totem animals, power animals, and shadow animals
  • Receive and interpret messages from animal spirit guides
  • Find and get to know your power animal
  • Give accurate spirit animal readings for yourself and others
  • Use animal oracle cards to get messages for yourself or others
  • Explore healing techniques with your animal spirit guides
  • Practice tools and rituals to access your animal spirit guides on a daily basis
