With All Life
by J. Allen Boone
Is there a universal language of love, a "kinship with all life"
that can open new horizons of experience? Example after example in this
unique 1954 classic—from Strongheart the actor-dog to Freddie
the fly—resounds with entertaining and inspiring proof that communication
with animals is a wonderful, indisputable fact. All that is required
is an attitude of openness, friendliness, humility, and a sense of humor
to part the curtain and form bonds of real friendship. For anyone who
loves animals, for all those who have ever experienced the special devotion
only a pet can bring, Kinship With All Life is an unqualified delight.
Sample these pages and you will never encounter "just a dog"
again, but rather a fellow member of nature's own family.
Wisdom, Communications with Animals
by Anita Curtis
Anita Curtis' book offers heartwarming true stories of human contact
with animals, as well as teaching readers how to communicate with their
own pets. "Animals are a joy and a delight to communicate with,"
states author Anita Curtis. "They are so open and honest, willing
to freely give unconditional love and ask for so little in return."
In Animal Wisdom she relates wonderful tales gathered from years in
private practice as an animal communicator. In this book is a moving
story about a horse that longed to have a baby, a dog that helped solve
a crime, and a cat that sent a comforting message beyond the grave to
its human companions. In the last section are easy-to-follow exercises
that will help readers develop the skills to communicate with their
pets. The health benefits of human/animal relationships are well known.
This unique, funny, and useful book helps humans to better understand
the remarkable creatures that enrich our lives so much.
Talk, Interspecies Telepathic Communication
by Penelope Smith
Excerpt from the Introduction:
"…Communion and communication with other species is not a
new idea. This thread can be found woven through the world's religious
traditions and as a basic fact of life in tribal communities of many
lands. It has been exemplified by such outstanding individuals as St.
Francis, Albert Schweitzer, Mohandas Gandhi, and Jane Goodall…
…The intention of this book is to continue, restore, and assist
this tradition of interspecies connection for those who seek it…
…You'll find information here to help you get closer to animals
by expanding your ability to communicate with them. May this increase
the amount of joy and understanding flowing among all beings in this
Advanced Interspecies Communication
by Penelope Smith

Education & Training
from Training to Testing
by Marsha Smith & Shalini Bosbyshell
A guide that will help you and your dog bridge the gap between
your practice sessions—where you can motivate your dog with praise
and encouragement—and the obedience trial ring—where you
and your dog must work together in near silence and still deliver your
best performance. The motivational practice session and the nearly silent
test are two very different modes of training—especially from
your dog’s point of view. You can help your dog make the transition
from the practice session to the test by adding an intermediate confidence
building mode of training. When you devote a percentage of your training
time to building your dog’s confidence, you’ll be helping
him learn to perform without needing to rely on your constant encouragement.
When you understand the distinctive characteristics of these three different
modes of training and practice them with your dog, working in silence
will become familiar and friendly territory. available
Other End of the Leash
by Patricia McConnell, PhD
Animal behaviorist Patricia McConnell describes and compares the body
language and communication styles of canines and primates (us), revealing
the ways in which we're naturally compatible and ways in which we're
not—and how we can change our behaviors in order to better communicate
our meaning to our dogs. This book is as fun to read as it is informative.
The author is a great story-teller and relates many of the experiences—some
amusing and some touching—that she’s had with her own dogs
and with her clients’ dogs. A “must-read” for anyone
who shares life with a dog.

A personal adventure, a fascinating study of anthropology and ethnopharmacology,
and, most important, a revolutionary look at how intelligence and consciousness
come into being. This adventure in science and imagination, which the
Medical Tribune said might herald "a Copernican revolution for
the life sciences," leads the reader through unexplored jungles
and uncharted aspects of mind to the heart of knowledge. In a first-person
narrative of scientific discovery that opens new perspectives on biology,
anthropology, and the limits of rationalism, The Cosmic Serpent reveals
how startlingly different the world around us appears when we open our
minds to it.
Mind: A Guide to Remote Viewing and Transformation of Consciousness
by Russell Targ, PhD
Amazon's Product Description: The psychic abilities of most humans are
dampened by the clatter of our conscious minds. In this timely book,
Russell Targ draws on the work of ancient mystics and traditions - Gnostic,
Christian, Buddhist, Kabalistic Jewish, Sufi, yogi, and especially Hindu
spiritual master Patanjali - to show readers how to quiet this noise

Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You
by Elaine N. Aron
Are you an HSP? Are you easily overwhelmed by stimuli? Affected by other
people's moods? Easily startled? Do you need to withdraw during busy
times to a private, quiet place? Do you get nervous or shaky if someone
is observing you or competing with you? HSP, shorthand for "highly
sensitive person," describes 15 to 20 percent of the population.
Being sensitive is a normal trait—nothing defective about it.
But you may not realize that, because society rewards the outgoing personality
and treats shyness and sensitivity as something to be overcome. According
to author Elaine Aron (herself an HSP), sensitive people have the unusual
ability to sense subtleties, spot or avoid errors, concentrate deeply,
and delve deeply. This book helps HSPs to understand themselves and
their sensitive trait and its impact on personal history, career, relationships,
and inner life. This book is essential for you if you are an HSP—you'll
learn a lot about yourself. It's also useful for people in a relationship
with an HSP.
Sensitive Person's Survival Guide:
An Alternative Health Answer to Emotional
Sensitivity & Depression
by Kyra Mesich
The Sensitive Person's Survival Guide presents a radically new way of
looking at emotional sensitivity and chronic depression and anxiety.
Through her own experiences and courageous research, Dr. Mesich (a traditionally
trained psychologist) has found that psychic sensitivity is the underlying
key to understanding emotional sensitivity. Dr. Mesich's book focuses
on empathic ability, the ability to literally feel other people's emotional
experiences, also known as psychic feeling. This misunderstood ability
often results in recurrent depression, anxiety, and the painful aspects
of emotional sensitivity due to our society's denial and repression
of the existence of psychic phenomena. With simple, down to earth language
and case studies, Dr. Mesich demystifies empathic ability, and explains
the relationship between emotional sensitivity and psychic sensitivity.
Readers also learn specific alternative health remedies and practices
they can immediately implement in their own lives to rebalance their
sensitivity and reconnect with their empathic ability.

Dad, Poor Dad: what the rich teach their kids about money—that
the poor and middle class do not!
by Robert T. Kiyosaki, Sharon L. Lechter
Amazon's Product Description: Personal-finance author and lecturer Robert
T. Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective from two very
different influences—his two fathers. One father (Robert's real
father) was a highly educated man, but fiscally poor. The other father
was the father of Robert's best friend—the Dad who was an eighth
grade dropout who became a self-made multi-millionaire. The lifelong
monetary problems experienced by his "poor dad" pounded home
the counterpoint communicated by his "rich dad." Taking that
message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retire at age forty seven. Rich
Dad, Poor Dad, written with consultant and CPA Sharon L. Lechter lays
out Kiyosaki's philosophy behind his relationship with money. Rich
Dad, Poor Dad opens readers eyes by:
the myth that you need to earn a
income to be rich
the belief that your house is an asset
once and for all an asset versus a liability
what kids need to know about money
their future financial success

but also to the energy and enthusiasm she has for the transformation
she experienced as she began exploring timeless truths about life. She

choices and that we always have the ability to choose how we respond
