Sponsoring an event is a way for you to have the opportunity for a private event with friends and family for an evening or a full day. At the event I will communicate with pets or do energy releases on humans and your fees are waived of course as host.
Some ideas of what you could hold include:
- Full day Workshop - would need animals for me to use to teach with, parking, and an area out of the elements for lecture part of class. Multiple species is ideal.
- Rescue groups- that have animals they want to place but are housed in a shelter like setting is another good setting. I am also interested in collaborating with rescue or sanctuary groups. The group would get their animals worked on as part of the class, helping them either to be placed easier or ease any past emotional distress they've experienced to enjoy the rest of their lives in a sanctuary. I am also willing to work with them with fundraising type events as well.
- Evening or 3 hour event- could also be held at a back room of a restaurant (where you can have wine and happy hour sort of thing). Can't be held in the main restaurant but a private room would be fine. Or can be in someone's home.
- Guest speaker - for function or larger event.
These events are an opportunity for individuals to experience the basics of animal communication in a fun and interactive small group environment. Informative handouts are provided and questions are encouraged.
Cost: I will discuss with you what to charge individuals for the workshop. It will vary a little depending on your area. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and the cost or call me at 541-658-5062.
Participant fees will be collected by me through my website. We will discuss who is responsible for my travel, food and lodging expenses on a case by case basis (costs vary depending on whether I can drive to your location or need to fly, where I am staying, etc.).
What You Need: A suitable venue that will comfortably accommodate 10-15 people. Your home or the home of a friend is perfect provided that it is quiet and has comfortable seating for everyone. It would be ideal for you to have your own animal(s) in the house for people to communicate with. Other people bringing their animals is discouraged and allowed with prior approval. We want people to enjoy the experience without having to monitor their pets.
Other Details: Name tags visible at a distance are very helpful. People will also need to know what their options are for lunch if it is a full day workshop (i.e., bring their own or purchase a lunch that you have provided, or go to a near-by restaurant). You may also want to include lunch in the price of the workshop. It is also nice to have hot and/or cold drinks and possibly muffins or fruit for people as they gather in the morning. This can be complimentary or done as a concession. Asking people to arrive 30 minutes early for registration will help us start on time.
Publicity: I will put your event on the Be An Animal Listener web site and list it in the latest edition of our newsletter. I will also direct any event inquiries coming from your area directly to you. I can also provide you with a master for a publicity flyer that you can distribute to vet offices, animal food and supply stores, dog or cat clubs, and so on. It is essential that you plan ahead of time and start publicizing your event at least 3 months ahead of time.
My goal with these events is to provide a positive, supportive learning environment that is informal, fun and flexible.
