Our Spiritual Connection with Animals Workshop with Genie Joseph, PhD
December 14, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST
We have great love for the animals who share our lives. This workshop goes beyond the “animals as pets” approach and looks at the ways in which animals can be our spiritual partners; helping us to have a pure experience of the unity of all life and the divinity of all living beings. How is your life transformed when you recognize that loving an animal can open your heart to the sacred? This is a practical workshop designed to open your intuitive connection with your animal and with all animals. Many indigenous cultures believed that before we could fully communicate with the animal kingdom. We will look at the first steps to expanding your awareness of your own animal nature and the pathway to deeper connection. How would it change your life to consider that you can communicate with animals?
Participants will learn to understand the spiritual connection between humans and animals:
- The consequences of a perspective of a unity and equality of all life
- How seeing the Sacredness of animals brings you into deeper communion with your spiritual life
- To become acquainted with philosophical insights regarding human relationship with animals
- Practical steps to develop a spiritual connection with the animals in one’s life
- To consider the possibility that animals have a profound spiritual consciousness
