Animal Communication
Sandra Stahlman

To learn more about animal communication, language, and art, explore these great pages by or about animal communicators.

I learned my art from both the telepathic "whispering" branch of communication, and from the psychology of language studies route, including a Summer apprenticeship at The Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute. Lilly and Penelope Smith, both, mentored me.

    On July 7, 2012, a group of the Earth's leading scientists came together and signed The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness in Non-Human Animals, a document that changes the way we as a people need to address the other animals living on this planet.

    Changing the phrase animals to the more correct phrase non-human animals is part of a shift in our understanding of the place that humans hold in the world. Scientists, led by Stephen Hawking, met at the Francis Crick Memorial Conference and took a vital step in forwarding the science of animals (both human and non-human) as thinking, feeling, self-aware beings.

    No more division based on awareness, thought, emotional, family ties, or cultural complexity. You can read the Declaration here:
