My guest this week is the author of Animal Voices. Dawn Baumann Brunke is a writer who specializes in the areas of healing, metaphysics and spirituality. She has published over three dozen interviews, including talks with natural medicine writer Dr. Andrew Weil; former NASA consultant Richard Hoagland; noted speakers Gregg Braden, Patricia Sun and Caroline Myss; and many animal communicators.

For the past six years, Dawn has been the Editor of Alaska Wellness, a bi-monthly magazine focused on health and wellness for the body, mind and spirit.
Animal Voices explores the fascinating world of human-animal communication and the underlying spiritual connection between us all. Two dozen leading interspecies communicators share their conversations with a wide range of domesticated and wild animals as we explore the deeper nature of our relationship with the animal kingdom. Over 100 animals - from dogs, cats, horses and birds to bears, whales, dolphins, and mosquitoes - contribute their wisdom, insight and humor.
