Natalie & Vicky - USA
The Animal Wellness Coach Certification™ Program is life changing!  I learned so much about how to effectively use simple and easy modalities to bring about wellness to the bodies, emotions, and spirits of animals (and people too).  I’m so glad I was able to learn in a semi-private group setting. The bonds formed with those in the group will be lasting and the personalized attention I received was invaluable.  It allowed me to leave with the strong confidence and understanding needed to start working with animals right away. The 360° Mountain views, the Milky Way, walking along the Yellowstone River, and seeing the beautiful animals in Yellowstone Park and around Kim’s home made this a beautiful, peaceful, learning environment and a wonderful spiritual experience overall.  I highly recommend taking the semi-private training at Kim’s log cabin!  Natalie I have now been back home a little over a week and have had some time to sit and reflect about the inspirational days spent at your home in Montana.  Not only did you wholeheartedly open your home but you also opened your heart.  It was a magical time. I accomplished and experienced things I never thought possible.  You taught me to believe in myself and my abilities.  Mentally, emotionally and spiritually I have grown.  I am still formulating a plan on how to best use my new found knowledge, just need to do it right.  The beauty of Montana and our side trip to Yellowstone will always be a highlight of the trip.  With the class size being just one other person, we received such individualized attention and really got to form a special bond.  I would recommend this trip to anyone on the road to discovery and learning.  Vicky

This program will help you change your life and the lives of others.

Bridgit & Tito - USA
I was able to sign up and complete the semi-private Animal Wellness Coach Program in Montana at Kim’s beautiful and comfortable log cabin home. It ended up being me and one other student along with Kim teaching. I can’t speak highly enough at how much I enjoyed this. I was already doing the online training as an animal professional in the Learning Center but felt that I would benefit from actually working directly with Kim so that I could make sure I felt confident in all the 8 modalities as well as getting business advice. The classes were extremely well organized with documents and lots of hands on practice. Kim was able to answer a wide range of questions. Montana was beautiful and we were even able to take a trip into Yellowstone one morning in search of wolves! We saw the beauty of the park along with bison and we were able to watch a wolf pack that had taken down an elk that morning!! I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in furthering their skills and confidence in animal work. Kim is an amazing teacher and continues to be a valuable resource for me. Bridgit Thank you very very much. You are in my heart. Thank you for what you did for me. It was amazing. Tito

The Wellness Coach Program is beyond amazing!  This program is rich in content and I will continue to refer back to my notebook time and time again.  I have never encountered such a comprehensive holistic program like it anywhere, and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to take this program.  I use some aspect of what I learned on a regular basis.  From nutrition and aromatherapy, to color therapy and gemstones, to muscle testing and flower essences, there are so many holistic modalities that are available to animals and humans.  In addition, the most mind-blowing is learning about SASA (Sacred Animal Spirit Alchemy)!  This is truly a gift from the animals!  If you are looking for a comprehensive course that will give you much more than just surface content, help you feel connected with mother earth and the animals, and provide clarity with who you are in spirit, then I highly recommend the Wellness Coach Program offered by Kim and Allison.  These are the gifts that I have discovered and keep discovering each day.  Kim, USA

Holistic animal care is a growing field.  More people are seeking natural wellness for the animals in their care.  Kim and Allison have over 35 years combined holistic animal care experience.  They have taught classes to students from all over the world since 2007.

I attended the Wellness Coach program by The Lightfoot Way.  The knowledge I gained about holistic animal care methods to add to my animal communication business was valuable, because I am now better equipped to serve my clients in all aspects of their needs.  Lanna Ashley, Sentient Beings Animal Communication, USA

Marlene - USA
My name is Marlene and I’m from New Jersey. This is how my journey began into the most profound spiritual journey of my life. It all began with a simple video of a woman communicating with a black leopard. What a gifted woman; I thought. Never, in my wildest dreams, did I ever think nor believe, that I too, can communicate with animals! I was so impressed, I googled “Communicating with animals.” That’s how I found Kim & Allison’s The Lightfoot Way. I took the communicating with animals via teleclass…WOW! Kim says you can learn in ONE day! I’m proof that you can!! I was hooked…what’s next on my journey? Because of scheduling issues, I couldn’t take the advanced communication teleclass. I felt Divinely guided to go to Montana and take the Wellness Coach program. I spent a week with Kim at her beautiful log cabin. For the first time ever, I felt inner peace. I learned so much from Kim, so vast the knowledge, there’s no way I can do Kim nor her program justice. I will guarantee, that you’ll go home a far different person. I’m not involved with animals now nor do I own a pet. So what brought me here? My Heart! I followed it, I urge everyone to do the same, you’ll be a better person for it! Marlene

IMPORTANT:  Pre-requisite for Program Enrollment:  You must have taken animal communication in person or by distance from somewhere.  If you have taken basic animal communication elsewhere that is at least the equivalent of our class, you may provide information for approval.  For teleclasses (phone or web call via laptop/computer),  click here to see teleclass dates, learn more and register.  For in person classes,  click here to see dates, learn more and register.  Why do we require animal communication as a pre-requisite?  It is because animal communication means that you are connected with animals on both an intuitive and spiritual level.  There is nothing like that experience.  We want our coaches to have that sacred experience first so that they can connect with animals on the deepest heart and soul level possible.  Being able to utilize your intuitive abilities allows you to have greater success with your clients.  If your primary focus is just the physical well-being of an animal, then this program is not for you.  True holistic care focuses on the body, mind and soul (physical, mental/emotional and spiritual) – all equally vital to an animal’s well-being.

The program was fantastic and intense where we learned all sorts of different practical skills to apply to the animals we are working with.  We had plenty of opportunity to enhance the theory we were learning with practical application.  It was really fantastic.  The ladies are brilliant.  They make learning really easy.  I felt fully supported during the program.  I highly recommend doing the animal wellness coach program.  You won’t regret it.  Ruth, United Kingdom Stop debating on whether or not you should invest in the Animal Wellness Coach Certification with The Lightfoot Way and just do it!  I can say it was one of the most powerful and life changing weeks of my life.  Experiencing the energy of all the amazing people in the course was very intense and rewarding.  It was so wonderful to feel and be able to feed off of everyone’s energy.  I even saw a few auras which I’ve never done before.  Allison and Kim are wonderful teachers. They made everyone feel comfortable and are very encouraging. The lessons each day brought more growth and I left there with a library full of information and the confidence to proceed with my own animal wellness business.  By the end of the week I felt like I was part of a new spiritual family and it was sad to leave.  Actually, I wish we could have a reunion.  I traveled all the way from California to Houston for the course and do not regret any bit of it.  Meeting other like-minded people and learning not only from Allison and Kim, but everyone who attended was an experience of a lifetime.  Thank you Universe for guiding me to The Lightfoot Way.  Jamie, USA

Kim and Allison’s Animal Wellness Coach Program was such a joy to be a part of.  For the first time in my life I felt I was around people that share the same passion and compassion for animals that I’ve always had.  I wish the program could’ve lasted a whole month!  The skills I learned have become so invaluable for my own pets and I already have friends and friends of friends asking for my help.  I’ve finally found my calling and I’m looking forward to helping as many pet parents as I can have the same peace of mind about their pet’s health and well-being as I now have with mine.  This program has changed my life and that of my fur babies.  I am so amazed and so pleased that I have to tell everyone I know.  Trixie, my micro dachshund, used to have oily itchy skin and smelled like stinky dog. After changing her to a raw diet, she no longer has any of those symptoms, just a clean, shiny, pleasant smelling coat.  And she LOVES her food and turns her nose up at regular people food.  Faith, my Boston Terrier, has been on incontinence medicine for 5 years, ever since she was 4 years old. After transitioning her to a grain free, limited protein diet, she no longer needs her medicine. She hasn’t had one accident.  For me this is an absolute miracle, because she would start dribbling if she didn’t give her medicine every 24 hours.   Right before the program I noticed my cat Grace was throwing up frequently and losing quite a bit of weight. She would only eat treats, tuna and cold cuts, but not her kitty food that she used to love.   After the wellness class I took all 3 of my cats off grains, changed their kitty kibble and now Grace is eating like a champ and has quit throwing up.  She is now at a healthy weight and is back to her normal personality. Just from a change in diet. I am more than thrilled!   I could on and on about how wonderful just being in the program was, but to me these success stories speak volumes.  (And this is just from applying ONE class out of 9 that you learn in the program!) Jennifer, USA

Nutrition is the principle of a good health for any kind of animal.  You are what you eat … so are the animals!  But the gift Allison and Kim give us is to learn how to muscle test the best diet for our pet.  I already knew about the Bach Flower essences when I took this class, mainly for people but I had to guess the best flower or the best blend I could create based on the characteristics of each essence.  Being able to create a blend that is perfect for the animal thanks again to the muscle testing is just magic!  I use the essential oils in the therapies I give to people. In that class I learned how to use them safely for animals, using the right oil, the right duration and especially the best way of administration. Working with energy is something I do every day but what you experience with Sacred Animal Spirit Alchemy (SASA) is typically something very hard to explain because there are no words to express what you feel giving a SASA session.  It empowers you in a way that is just unbelievable… it makes you realize how divine and powerful (in the Light) we are. But what affected me the most was to feel how deep and natural is our connection with Mother Earth and the animals.  And in some way we became orphans forgetting this strong bond…  The EFT demonstration Allison made during the class was quite eloquent to understand how deep this technique goes to bring out repressed emotions.  Before taking crystal class with Allison and Kim, I was already aware that crystals are very powerful. I never had worked with them because I didn’t feel like I could. To be honest I was afraid of them. Yes, I know! It can sound weird to some people …but it was my reality.  Now, I can collaborate with them, mainly because I can muscle test if the animal needs it, which one is the best and how it can be offered. I learned how to make crystal essences and how to cleanse the crystals I use. I’m not afraid anymore, I’m just respectful for their Beauty and Magic! Color therapy was a fun and really interesting class. Everybody has noticed almost once in his life, the impact a color can have on our mood. Most of the time we choose a color instinctively, especially when we get dressed.  But Kim and Allison taught me how to use them to restore a balance in my life. I not only learned about the physical, emotional and spiritual characteristics of colors but also about the many different ways I can offer color therapy to animals.  What I really appreciated in this program is the fact that Kim and Allison are very generous. It’s full of details and tips and, at the end of the day, you can use all this data for your animals of course but for people too!  It’s easily understandable. Very clear and structured. And all the charts are already done for you: you just have to print them and begin to muscle test.  Christine, Spain
