I Have A Dream Day
All animals be treated with mindful regard
This is a one day experience that explores the concepts, principles and practical application of the Trust Technique. Giving you the tools to deepen the connection with your own animals.
More than a dream
When it comes to teaching and helping our animals, it is not the content that is so important it is the connection
Have you have ever been in the situation where:
- You just don’t seem to be getting through to your animal, they seem to be distracted?
- You are finding yourself getting frustrated and sharp, even though you love them dearly?
- You are worried about what they will do next and feel that you have no influence?
- Training your animal feels like one step forward and two steps back?
- You are concerned that your own emotional state is affecting your animals?
All of these situations are relative to the pace at which you and your animal are going. Finding a true regard for your animal is not just about slowing down or being calm, it needs to be deeper. The Trust Technique day gives you the tools to enhance the communication between you and your animals and find the true treasures of the relationship that can be found within.
Daily practice of the Trust Technique creates a shared peace of mind and reduces anxious over-thinking—one of the main causes for so-called “behavioural problems” in pets and humans. This dynamic approach does not objectify animals, but rather recognises all animals as sentient equals and transcends an unhealthy approach of dominance or control. Humans and other animals work in trusted cooperation, which leads to more truthful communication and manifests in shared well-being.
This course is for anyone
who sees the value of trust in relationships with their animals, people and themselves

What have our past attendees said?
What a privilege to have attended the I Have A Dream Day at The Donkey Sanctuary? After sampling the online module I was keen to see the process for myself. I was not disappointed! It made the intentions clear, James & Shelley are truly inspiring in their dedication to their work. Made me feel so emotional that there are people out there who will stand for what they truly believe in & want to share their knowledge for the benefit of all animals. Made me feel that what I think & feel is normal! Pushed me to take this message forward into my work as a veterinary nurse, to create a fear free environment. I was inspired to take up the lifetime membership & then hopefully be accepted onto the practitioner course.
Being participant at the TT- Dream Day at the Donkey Sanctuary and meeting James and Shelley in person was a real great honour for me. All the warmth, authenticity , and presence with animals and students was inspiring. Meeting other practioners and learners as well was great pleasure and its really hard work going back to " business as usual", means it seems hard not only longing for change but living change.
Thanks to all of you
no way to give it less stars than 5! the donkey sanctuary is a wonderful place, way more beautiful for the animals than I expected and definitely worth the trip from switzerland. next to that I had a great time meeting other practitioners of different levels and to exchange some experiences - and feelings - with them. getting present in a group of like-minded people was a new and deep thing for me. I felt like filled up with fresh energy for my future work in the loneliness of an online student and can still sense the group around me. a lot of connections being built -also with shelley and james, who in real life are even more inspirational than on the videos! to sum it up: I still dream of that dream day!
I attended the Dream Day at the Donkey Sanctuary in Devon U.K.. It was my first meeting with James, Shelley and their beautiful team. It was a long way to go there from Italy but it was really worth to do. Having the possibility to learn in person from James and Shelley was a real privilege and it is something I can only recommend.
In reality animals’ opinion comes really first. No show, only real life, always with respect, compassion and love for the animals because the expertise fully matches with integrity and honesty. Last but not least, it was beautiful to realize to be on the same journey with many soul mates with whom to share common values and the sincere purpose of serving.
Inclusive, loving atmosphere, lots to learn, an inspiring day!
Thank you all from the deep of my heart.
The ‘I have a dream’ day and the associated practitioner day at the Donkey Sanctuary in Devon have rekindled my motivation to start the practical modules of the practitioner course for which I was accepted December 2018. James is an excellent teacher and presenter. It is no surprise that the Trust Technique, used with animals and their humans, which James and Shelley developed is gaining an ever greater following and their team is expanding in order to reach a growing audience across the world. Their approach is simple yet subtle, gentle yet very effective. I would recommend this day and the video course to all animal lovers who would like a deeper and closer connection with their animal. It was a privilege to spend two full days in the company of James and his team and I will continue to follow their fantastic work with interest and in gratitude as a student now and as a future qualified practitioner. Your commitment, enthusiasm and dedication are truly inspiring, thank you!
