Calling all travel and animal lovers! Join Animal Communicator Joan Ranquet and get wordless in East Africa. Experience for yourself what it’s like to feel the world through the senses of elephants, rhinos, and the wild creatures of this very special part of the world.

Visualise your Journey: From the foothills of Mount Meru on the eastern side of the Great Rift Valley to the savannahs dotted with baobobs of Tarangire National Park. To the plains of the Serengeti filled with wildlife to the bustling capital city of Nairobi, Kenya. And finally, to the very special Tsavo East National Park to spend time with the baby elephants of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s Reintegration Unit. This trip is remarkable.

About Joan

Animal communicator, TEDx speaker, Findhorn Press, Hay House, and Sounds True author, educator, and animal guardian Joan Ranquet leads an inspired life. It’s no surprise MSN deemed her as one of the “Top 25 People Who Do What They Love.”

Joan has connected with animals professionally for over thirty years, and she’s connected with them personally for as long as she can remember. Her calling has led her to work with hundreds of thousands of animal guardians, animal trainers, barn managers, veterinarians, sanctuaries, wildlife, rehab and therapeutic riding centers — teaching animal communication and energy healing through workshops, wildlife retreats, and private sessions.

Deemed “Celebrity Animal Communicator” in an AMC Channel documentary, Joan has been featured in dozens of media outlets including The Hollywood Reporter, “Pet Nation” on Dateline NBC, Today on NBC, Good Morning America on ABC, Animal Planet, the National Enquirer, and the Los Angeles Times.

In 2008, Joan founded CWALU (Communication With All Life University), a certification program for animal communication, energy healing and nature and wildlife that is taught online and in person.

She is the author of Emotional Freedom Technique for Animals and Their Humans: Creating a Harmonious Relationship through Tapping (Findhorn Press, 2023), Energy Healing for Animals: A Hands-On Guide for Enhancing the Health, Longevity, and Happiness of Your Pets (Sounds True, 2015) and Communication with All Life: Revelations of an Animal Communicator (Hay House, 2007). Joan contributed to The Dharma of Dogs: Our Best Friends as Spiritual Teachers (Sounds True, 2017) and The Karma of Cats: Spiritual Wisdom from our Feline Friends (Sounds True, 2019). 

Joan’s TEDx Talk, “Joan Ranquet, The Rainbow Bridge, Animals in Transition has received over 423,000 views.

Joan’s hands-on animal communication and energy healing process troubleshoots behavioral and medical issues, stimulates healing (in conjunction with conventional treatment), and deepens her clients’ abilities to care for and understand their animals. She believes the capacity to attune to animals and work with them energetically is not a gift for the select few, but an innate ability we can all access with guidance. Thus, she teaches down-to-earth skills that enable her students to communicate consistently and confidently with animals.

Joan has spearheaded trips to swim with wild dolphins (16 trips). She has also facilitated wildlife excursions to South Africa (3 trips), Namibia, Botswana, Kenya (2 trips) and Borneo, focused on endangered species. A highlight for Joan was teaching animal communication in Beijing, China in 2018. In addition to foreign trips, Joan has shared her expertise all over the U.S., speaking on animal communication, human/animal relationships, energy healing, and wildlife

Today, Joan lives on her ranchette in the gorgeous hills of southern California with her devoted animal family: three horses, three dogs, and three cats. She donates her time to animal rescue missions, sanctuaries and therapeutic riding centers, and is an avid fundraiser for organizations focused on rescue, recovering, and rehabilitation of compromised animals and endangered species.

Joan has served as Star-Lioness – an advisory/sounding board for the Global White Lion Protection Trust – and on the Spiritual Council for The Gentle Barn. Joan is the co-founder of Jill and Joan Healing, a company providing acupressure classes for animals and hemp-based pet products with holistic veterinarian, Dr. Jill Todd.
