"An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will the workshops start up again?

We wish we could be more specific about when our workshops will start up again. Assisi is undergoing an internal process assessing its goals for the future and abilities to meet those goals. At this time, there are no workshops planned for 2015 and 2016. As our plan becomes clearer, we will provide updates through both our email contact list and by postings on the website.

I'd like to know more about the Skills Development Workshop.

The Skills Development Workshop is the foundation course. It is a 3.5 day intensive open to 10 – 18 people at a time. This workshop has several purposes. The first is a practical one: to help people to communicate with their animals to negotiate and resolve problems. The second is to give emotional support, since communication enhances intimacy. The third is to promote and support the development of professional animal communication skills. The fourth purpose is spiritual; it emphasizes raising consciousness regarding the souls of animal-beings and their sentience and consciousness.

he Skills Development Workshop cost approximately $400, when offered previously. While the price is likely to be adjusted upward, this should provide a ball-park figure.

Can I take a workshop online?

Workshops cannot be taken online; they must be done in person, as the group structure is fundamental to the class. However, a class can conceivably be held in any state or country as the trainer can travel to the training site, once at least 10 paid attendees are arranged.

I’d like to sponsor a workshop.

Great! Sponsoring a workshop can be a lot of fun and allows you to attend a workshop without paying the workshop fee or travelling to a workshop. There is also the deep satisfaction of networking with others holding similar views of animals. The animal communication network promotes lasting relationships.

When workshops resume, we will outreach through Assisi’s website and email contact list to develop a list of people interested in sponsoring workshops.

Can I visit Assisi?

As Assisi is operated out of Dr. Jeri Ryan’s house, visits are not possible. Assisi’s work occurs through person-to-person communication, primarily through its workshops.

I’m interested in learning more. Where do you recommend I start?

Dr. Jeri Ryan is currently putting together a list of resources which will be published on the website once available.

Can I volunteer my services to Assisi?

It is truly amazing to see the generosity and the skillset of Assisi contributors. At this time, Assisi is just not able to make use of volunteers. Should that change, we will outreach through Assisi’s website and email contact list to develop a list of people interested in volunteering.
