Many teachers have crossed Anthea’s path, most of them of the ‘non human’ kind, however there have also been some incredible human teachers along the way, and below is a snap shot of these formal trainings she has received.
2012 – 2017 – Professional Animal Communicator Training
This is an intensive, multi module training that includes reviewing of multiple case studies and also speaking with as many animals as possible over this time to build up experience, confidence and to learn from the animals themselves. The training also includes learning how to do remote healing and ‘body-scan’ technique to pick up discomfort in an animals body. She has also attended a number of ‘Star Lion’ (White Lion) Journeys with Wynter Worsthorne & Linda Tucker, located in the heart of the Timbavati (Kruger) where wild Nature also becomes part of the training process. Anthea is still closely connected with Animal Talk Africa and is also a mentor for other new students learning how to speak with animals.
2016 – 2018 – Bach Remedies
The Bach Remedies are flower remedies that work on the emotional bodies and Anthea completed her Level I & II training with this over a two year period with Dr Sanien De Beer.
