Deepen your connection
For animals and people
"When it comes to teaching and helping our animals it is not the content that is so important, it is the connection."
Have you have ever been in the situation where:
- You just don’t seem to be getting through to your animal, they seem to be distracted?
- You are finding yourself getting frustrated and sharp, even though you love them dearly?
- You are worried about what they will do next and feel that you have no influence?
- Training your animal feels like one step forward and two steps back?
- You are concerned that your own emotional state is affecting your animals?
All of these situations are relative to the pace at which you and your animal are going. Finding a true regard for your animal is not just about slowing down or being calm, it needs to be deeper. The Trust Technique day gives you the tools to enhance the communication between you and your animals and find the true treasures of the relationship that can be found within.
Daily practice of the Trust Technique creates a shared peace of mind and reduces anxious over-thinking—one of the main causes for so-called “behavioural problems” in pets and humans. This dynamic approach does not objectify animals, but rather recognises all animals as sentient equals and transcends an unhealthy approach of dominance or control. Humans and other animals work in trusted cooperation, which leads to more truthful communication and manifests in shared well-being.
Learn the 3 principles of the Trust Technique
You will learn how to overcome thinking and create a still mindset that you then share with your own animals.
The Trust Technique is not just about being present around animals. It is way more sophisticated.
You will learn the techniques that deliver this feeling specifically at your animals’ pace using focused presence. It is a beautiful dance where you help reduce your animals thinking while you holding a deep listening state.
The result is a combined process of healing that helps both physical and emotional pain. Followed by a deep sense of trust and connection
On the day we will be exploring the principle in detail. You will be learning the techniques which make this sharing possible. Followed by live examples and group participation.
A simple and profound way to resolve behavioural issues by changing perception.
You will be learning how to create a very dynamic way to help both you and your animals learn quickly with a very high level of retention.
By seeing and valuing your animals’ opinion and having the techniques to help them let go of overthinking states. This principle makes it easy to help your animal build trust and confidence when in environments which would normally make then fearful. You will also discover how to help them builds their overall confidence in environments and you.
On the day we share this understanding and technique in a practical way so that you will have these skills to help your own animals.
When two minds are peaceful an intuitive gateway is shared.
This is the door to discovering and sharing pure animal intelligence and is a unique and dynamic way to help develop trusted cooperation. It will also enable you to take your animal training to a new and exciting level. With this skill set, the sky is the limit on what you can achieve together.
On the day, we will share the techniques which are the future of the animal-human connection.
You will learn how to work with each other in gratitude where both you and your animals enjoy learning and working together. We will also be exploring a very down to earth way of stimulating intuitive communication.

What a privilege to have attended the I Have A Dream Day at The Donkey Sanctuary? After sampling the online module I was keen to see the process for myself. I was not disappointed! It made the intentions clear, James & Shelley are truly inspiring in their dedication to their work. Made me feel so emotional that there are people out there who will stand for what they truly believe in & want to share their knowledge for the benefit of all animals. Made me feel that what I think & feel is normal! Pushed me to take this message forward into my work as a veterinary nurse, to create a fear free environment. I was inspired to take up the lifetime membership & then hopefully be accepted onto the practitioner course.
Being participant at the TT- Dream Day at the Donkey Sanctuary and meeting James and Shelley in person was a real great honour for me. All the warmth, authenticity , and presence with animals and students was inspiring. Meeting other practioners and learners as well was great pleasure and its really hard work going back to " business as usual", means it seems hard not only longing for change but living change.
Thanks to all of you
no way to give it less stars than 5! the donkey sanctuary is a wonderful place, way more beautiful for the animals than I expected and definitely worth the trip from switzerland. next to that I had a great time meeting other practitioners of different levels and to exchange some experiences - and feelings - with them. getting present in a group of like-minded people was a new and deep thing for me. I felt like filled up with fresh energy for my future work in the loneliness of an online student and can still sense the group around me. a lot of connections being built -also with shelley and james, who in real life are even more inspirational than on the videos! to sum it up: I still dream of that dream day!
The ‘I have a dream’ day and the associated practitioner day at the Donkey Sanctuary in Devon have rekindled my motivation to start the practical modules of the practitioner course for which I was accepted December 2018. James is an excellent teacher and presenter. It is no surprise that the Trust Technique, used with animals and their humans, which James and Shelley developed is gaining an ever greater following and their team is expanding in order to reach a growing audience across the world. Their approach is simple yet subtle, gentle yet very effective. I would recommend this day and the video course to all animal lovers who would like a deeper and closer connection with their animal. It was a privilege to spend two full days in the company of James and his team and I will continue to follow their fantastic work with interest and in gratitude as a student now and as a future qualified practitioner. Your commitment, enthusiasm and dedication are truly inspiring, thank you!
This is a massive leap in our consciousness and our relationship to animals. The day workshop was magical and inspiring , this is the evolution of us as a species. This work needs to be shared with the world, if we are to understand how animals and nature are feeling beings like we are. Feel immense gratitude for the workshop. Thankyou???????????
