Workshop and Program Policies

  1. Participants must be 10 years or older.
  2. Individuals between the ages of 10-14 years of age may attend the workshop or program with a paying adult and with prior approval from the office.
  3. Participants are asked not to bring their animals to the workshop or program unless requested by the Coordinator in order to fill the requirement of three (3) animals during the first day of the Introductory Animal Communication Workshop.
  4. Due to the energetic component of the workshops and programs, alcohol consumption is not recommended during the evenings after the workshops or programs.


All workshop and program registrations are processed through The Gurney Institute of Animal Communication’s website. Registrants can register for any workshop or program by using a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or eCard, all of which are processed through Pay Pal. The Institute accepts personal checks for workshops and programs in the US. Registrants paying by check are asked to send their check directly to the office.


There are no refunds. In the unlikely event a workshop or program is cancelled, registrations will be 100% refunded. Refunds are processed within one (1) week and are refunded through the original method of payment.

Participants can request to transfer their registration to another workshop or program of their choice with no administration fee. Participants can also choose to transfer their registration to someone else. Lastly, they may also use the credit towards products available through The Gurney Institute of Animal Communication’s website.
