the unique experience of being in
Joanna's Introductory Workshop. I
learned how skilled and talented
she is in her understanding and
caring of animals and in her
ability to communicate with them.
teacher, Joanna is patient, clear
and able to help me enhance my
own skills - skills I didn't even
know I had. With Joanna's
encouragement and support, I was
able to communicate with another
participant's pet and learn to
trust what I received."
Hewlett Bay Park, NY
"I found Joanna's
Introductory Workshop to be extraordinary!
I learned how natural it is to make a
deep connection with our beloved animals.
It was a profound experience for me to
receive very specific information about a
classmate's cat, which proved to be true
Being at the workshop was not only a
learning experience for me but a healing
in and of itself."
Preston, Short Hills, NJ
"I wanted to
really learn how to communicate with
animals so I took Joanna's Introductory
Workshop. I was immensely impressed by
the absolute integrity of Joanna's
respect for each individual (human and
animal), and her acknowledging each one's
right to his/her own belief system, and
the need for confidentiality and non-intrusion.
These were not just words she said; they
were part of her nature and teachings.
What I have learned from Joanna
has greatly helped me get in touch with
the spiritual nature that underlies all
of creation and manifests in each animal
Wells, Kew Gardens, NY
"I find Joanna to
be a knowledgeable teacher, generous with
her information and extremely
compassionate towards animals. During the
Introductory Workshop, I learned to trust
my instincts. I realized that I could
feel when animals were communicating with
me and that I was receiving what they
were saying accurately.
Marder-Mirman, Rockville Centre, NY
"My most memorable
experience with Joanna was at the Level I
Workshop. On the second day, participants were
welcome to bring their animal family members to class.
I wasn't enthusiastic about bringing my Labrador
(Sarah) because it was winter; she was getting
over Lyme disease and was limping severely. I
figured she'd be laid up, sick and sore after the
workshop. But she really wanted to go.
To my surprise, soon
after Sarah got to the workshop, her limp
disappeared and never returned! Just being in all
that healing energy for one day solved a problem
that months of medicine couldn't solve."
Coyle DiNorcia, W. Orange, NJ
" I learned so much about horses
being with them at the Master Class. They are
such great beings and they opened my heart.
Joanna's teachings were very clear. We got good
instruction and then we were allowed to be
ourselves and trust our instincts.
The weekend was transformative for me."
"Joanna created another truly fascinating
workshop for my group at the Master Class. The
weekend was eye-opening and a very moving
experience for me. Joanna is a very fine teacher
who enables her students to progress to a point
that some of us would have never thought possible.
She creates a very loving, spiritual and
supportive environment and teachings in which
learning becomes easy and joyful."
Haigh, Elmont, NY
"I took Joanna's
Training Program in animal communication
and healing, and I was very pleased by
the care and deep thought that went into
each session. Each participant had actual
experience and feedback working with
animals in the flesh and at a distance.
The atmosphere of the class was safe,
gentle and supportive so that each person
could feel free to discuss his/her fears
and limitations as well as successes."
New York, NY
workshops have been a great experience. Always,
it's a mutual healing for both my animals and me.
Each time I come away from a workshop, I feel
like my inner core has been touched and more of
my heart is healed.
Joanna is a very caring and
understanding teacher. She validates and
encourages us to share our experiences in the
group. And she helps us build confidence and
belief in ourselves in communicating and healing
Dee Close, N. Brunswick, NJ
"Each of Joanna's
workshops was more than I thought possible in one
weekend. I love her availability. She allows for
what's happening in the moment and yet addresses
everything that's on the class schedule. I want
to study more with Joanna because she allows me
the space to really learn and grow and heal."
Winterberg, N ew York, NY
"I find Joanna's
workshops challenging and rewarding, and
I always stretch beyond what I thought I
was capable of during them. Joanna
presents a tremendous amount of useful
information. She is as compassionate and
sensitive to her students as she is to
the animals. Her exercises have helped me
develop and build an awareness of animals
and their essence on all levels -- from
physical to emotional to spiritual.
What I have learned has changed
me profoundly. I have a new sensitivity
to and respect for the sacredness of all
Heathcote, Brattleboro, VT
"I have found
Joanna to be an informative and
knowledgeable teacher who is able
to make practical the spiritual
aspects of healing. These
workshops changed my life. I
realized that this work is part
of my life's path. My work now
includes more animal
communication and healing."
workshops are a
wonderfully centering and
creative exploration of
the world we share with
animals. She has the
phenomenal gift of being
able to hold a loving
space in which to do this
work. I have gained so
much insight and
confidence under Joanna's
loving and compassionate
Evans, Tuckaho, NY
think that animal communication is flaky,
but Joanna's workshops are really about
compassion. Attending her workshop is
like stepping out of this hard world into
a soft, peaceful, positive place to
relax, learn and practice having
compassion towards animals, other people
and yourself. Having compassion opens you
up to understanding and communicating
with animals and people."
