Learn to be an animal whisperer

2012-09-15 00:00

MANY a pet owner has said, “If my pet could only talk, it would be human”.

Imagine being able to talk to your pet.

Someone who believes this is possible is Wynter Worsthorne, who has been working as a professional animal communicator for the last 10 years. She believes her skill in communicating with other species can be taught to all people, and is hosting a workshop in Kloof this weekend, where she aims to demonstrate exactly that.

Worsthorne says she teaches people how to communicate effectively with their animal companions in order to help make the lives of the animals and the humans they live with more harmonious.

Her workshops also reveal how we are all able to intuitively understand what individual animals are feeling and how to see the world through their eyes. “I want to share my knowledge and experience of communicating with all animals, in order for people to start understanding their beloved animal companions on a deeper level,” she says.

Worsthorne has made many television appearances, both in South Africa and the UK. There have been numerous articles in newspapers and magazines about her work. She is a regular guest on Cape Talk and 702 Radio.

In 2009, she completed filming a documentary programme for a wildlife series produced by New Delhi TV, which was screened internationally.

Her CD Meditations with Wynter — Guiding You in the Subtle Art of Animal Communication was released in 2009.

She recently completed a guide book for helping people whose animal companions have gone missing, discussing how to cope and how to guide them home.

The projects she is most involved with are the Global White Lion Protection Trust, which is successfully re-introducing the technically extinct white lions into their endemic homeland, Drakenstein Lion Sanctuary, Baboon Matters Trust and Dolphin Care Africa.

The workshop will be held today and tomorrow from 9.30 am to 5 pm. The first day will deal with the basics of animal communication and the second with advanced methods of communication.
