Communicating with Animals

Awaken Your Innate Gift of Telepathy with Animals

7 Week LIVE Online Course

with Lena Swanson, M.A., Professional Animal Communicator, Healer and Teacher

Discover a proven, step by step process to uncover your natural telepathic ability to communicate with animals near or far and form a deeper connection with all of life.

Imagine being able to experience a deeper relationship with animals and feel more connected to them.

Imagine knowing what your animals are thinking and feeling through actual communication, even if they’re not with you.

What if you could get information directly from them that would help solve behavior problems, health issues and even end-of-life questions.

This could all become a reality if you only knew how to communicate with animals!

The problem is that until now you may not have realized it’s even possible. You might be unsure of what animal communication is and how it works...

Even if you’re familiar with it, you’re probably unsure of where you can study and practice real animal communication with someone you trust.

It may be hard to believe that someone exists who is actually able to teach telepathic communication!

You might even be thinking, “I can’t do that!”

Unfortunately this is a common myth because intuitive communication has never been accepted by mainstream society. Even though all human beings possess this innate gift it’s been relegated to the ‘woo-woo’ realm.

But guess what- you CAN do this!

It IS possible for human beings to use their innate intuitive abilities to communicate with animals. And it’s not just some people…ALL people, including you, are born with this gift. It’s simply a matter of uncovering and developing these skills.

That’s why I’ve created Communicating With Animals, a seven week, LIVE online course where I teach the Launch Pad, my proven, step-by-step process that will help you discover your innate gift of telepathy and begin to hone this skill.

When you take time to study and practice animal communication in a supportive environment you’ll discover that telepathy is real and that with practice, anyone can do it.

My promise to you is that through this course you'll have the information and tools needed to begin practicing intuitive communication with animals and nature on your own.


By the end of course, you’ll experience:

  • An understanding of how telepathy works with animals near or far.
  • A deeper awareness and enhancement of your unique psychic gifts.
  • Increased trust and confidence in your intuitive skills.
  • A proven, step-by-step guide to making the telepathic connection.
  • How it feels to actually communicate with animals.
  • A deeper connection with the natural world.
  • The knowledge and skills to begin a path toward becoming a professional animal communicator.

This course will transform your relationship with animals, deepen your intimacy with them and help you feel more connected to and ‘in sync’ with the natural world.

My Personal Story

When I was five years old my father died. It was an earth-shattering experience for my family and I took refuge in my relationship with our two cats, Puffer and Blue Boy.

They provided much-needed emotional support during this difficult time and we bonded deeply. I desperately wanted to talk to them and find out if they could understand me.

I wanted, more than anything else in the world, to communicate with animals.

In every loss I’ve experienced since then, I’ve always had the emotional support of animals to help me get through it.

Looking into their eyes I understood that they weren’t ‘just a dog or a cat’ but a special type of soul that I wanted to connect with more deeply.

The problem was I had no idea how to do it or if it was even possible. I sensed that I knew what they were thinking but without a way to validate it, I was stymied.

It wasn't until I was 47 years old that I first heard of telepathic communication with animals! I was so thrilled to find out it was possible that I enrolled in the first course I could find.

At first it was very difficult, trusting that the information I was getting was actually from the animal. I had all the usual questions: Do I have this gift? Am I making this up? Am I really getting this information from the animal?

Through several months of additional courses and focused practice I finally felt more at ease with the process and began to trust the information I was getting through validation from the animals’ people. 

 During this time another shattering loss occurred - the sudden and unexpected death of my younger sister. She was only 45 years old. Her death made me realize that I needed to pay attention to, and embrace, what I was being called to do at this point in my life.

So I left my career in elementary school teaching and began a new path of service, working full-time as an animal communicator, holistic healer, mentor, coach and teacher.

I’m passionate about this work and made the decision to devote my life to it. This decision 20 years ago set me on the path to becoming a master animal communicator and teacher and transformed my life

Join me in exploring the world of animal communication with other animal and nature lovers from around the world and experience this transformation for yourself.

I care deeply about my clients and my compassion puts people and their animals at ease and facilitates healing connections. People appreciate my empathy and authentic, down-to-earth approach.

My full-time animal communication and holistic healthcare practice focuses on achieving and maintaining wellness for both people and animals through a variety of services. In addition to my work as a professional animal communicator and teacher I’m also a shamanic healer and past life regression facilitator. My practice is client-oriented and I’m dedicated to service in every interaction. I have a wealth of knowledge and wisdom and impart this with clarity and from the heart in all of my work.

I previously taught English as a Second Language in the Saint Paul Public Schools for 22 years and hold a Master's Degree in Second Languages and Cultures. With my extensive experience as an educator I’ve developed animal communication and shamanic courses that allow for a high level of success in my students.
