Three tuning forks of various sizes

Seeing and hearing Debbi Walker’s remarkable stories of healing animals with sound therapy at the Animal Energy World Conference in England this past May, my immediate reaction was: Earthfire animals! It wasn’t only the stories, but Debbi’s medical training and her extensive research into the nature of sound healing, combined with deeply intuitive skills, that impressed me. Her analysis went from research on the vagus nerve to the beautiful statement that with sound healing, ancient memories are switched on. And so I invited her to Earthfire, and two months later, Debbi arrived here from England to spend seven days working with our animals (and humans---necessary!). She is so...
