  1. Upcoming Event – Animal Communicator – Charles Peden

    Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County
    6230 77th St., Vero Beach

    Can humans actually communicate with animals telepathically and know what they are feeling? Charles Peden, says “yes.” Like Animal Planet’s Pet Psychic Sonya Fitzpatrick, this popular Northern California animal communicator claims that our four-legged friends have the ability to “speak” using mental images.

    Peden will reveal how he discovered his ability to communicate with animals, describe what animals have told him and explain how you can also develop a rapport with animals using mental imagery techniques. According to Peden, his gift isn’t special and we all have the unique ability to connect with other creatures.

    A group reading will also be conducted. Guests are encouraged to bring photos of their dogs, cats, horses, birds, ferrets or other companion animals to this group reading.
