ROCKLAND — “How to Hear the Animals” is the title of a lecture and two-day workshop to be held Friday, April 23, through Sunday, April 25, at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall, 235 Park St. in Rockland.
The Humane Society of Knox County is hosting Animal Communicator Anita Curtis as part of its continuing effort to foster good relationships between people and their pets, said Becky Schnur, executive director of the Humane Society.
“Part of the Humane Society’s mission is to strengthen the human-animal bond,” Schnur said. “We want to do everything we can to help people better understand their animals.”
The lecture is 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday at the VFW. Admission is $5 which benefits the Humane Society of Knox County. Curtis discusses her experiences as an animal communicator. She will answer questions immediately following her talk.
The Level 1 workshop will be from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and costs $85. Registration starts at 9 a.m. The Level 2 workshop is 9:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday and costs $85. Attendance at the Level 1 workshop is required for attendance at the Level 2 workshop.
In Level 1, Curtis will help participants recognize the times they have already experienced telepathic communication with animals. In Level 2 she will enhance and broaden the skills learned in Level 1. She will also teach the technique of contacting departed animals.
The workshop was first developed by Penelope Smith, pioneer in animal communications. Smith has authorized Curtis to teach her techniques. Curtis’ students have included veterinarians, farriers, trainers, animal massage therapists and hundreds of pet owners.
Registration for the workshop is due by April 14. To register call Schnur at 594-4897.
