Interspecies communication is a unique opportunity for learning, clarity and healing. Through direct two-way information exchange, we increase mutual understanding and can work towards resolution of issues in our relationships with other beings. Psychic animal communication is natural; everyone can talk with animals! Most of us have simply forgotten how, but can recall instances from childhood or other times in our lives when we’ve been connected to our intuitive abilities and perceived things in a non-physical manner. We can all remember how to listen and perceive the true nature and essence of an animal’s unique personality and soul. The universal language of telepathy allows us to use our natural intuition and abilities to communicate with other species.
I promise to always treat every animal I encounter with respect. I will continue to follow a vegetarian diet and eat as plant-based as possible. I will never stop trying to learn more about animals and raise awareness about their struggles. I will continue to contribute to conservation organizations and share their messages. I will always look for more opportunities to get involved in improving the lives of Earth’s animals!
Gregory Colbert’s Ashes and Snow feature film captures extraordinary moments of contact between people and animals as seen through the lens of the artist’s camera on more than thirty expeditions to some of the earth’s most remote places.

The viewing experience is one of wonder and contemplation, serenity, and hope.
