Book Description

21 Aug 2008
In SHAPESHIFTING WITH OUR ANIMAL COMPANIONS, Dawn Baumann Brunke moves beyond the how and why of animal communication presented in her earlier books to a profound journey of shared spiritual awareness. Through conversations, dreams, and merged consciousness with a variety of animals and spirit beings, she reveals the vast treasure of wisdom and experiences offered to us as we open ourselves to the consciousness of others, confront and release our fears of death and expand our sensory perception to include other modes of existence. Brunke reveals how by shapeshifting - moving in and out of shared awareness with others and particularly animals - we may better understand and embrace the diversity of consciousness in our world as we learn to awaken our true selves. Through encounters with shapeshifting animal teachers, she explores the three stages of transforming consciousness: letting go of old ideas and habitual modes of perception, experiencing different forms of consciousness through the eyes of others and integrating these experiences into a greater awareness of our own being - thus discovering the deeper nature of who we all really are. · Reveals how shapeshifting with the animal kingdom allows us to experience different forms of consciousness and expand our perception of the world · Explores how shapeshifting provides an understanding of death as a transformation rather than an ending

I first heard of Dawn Baumann Brunke after searching for animal communication in the Amazon search bar and ordered a cheap copy of her book "Animal Voices" which absolutely blew me away in terms of the varied and vast topics that the animals were discussing and I had to get my hands on Shapeshifting With Our Animal Companions and have been left even more amazed by the level of consciousness that the spirit that resided in her dog, Barney, holds. An amazing book in animal communication and one which everyone interested in the subject should read - a must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating read! 29 Aug 2008
By Jessica Teel - Published on
Brunke details with tender honesty her journey to more deeply understand, and interconnect, with animals. She begins by narrating her special relationship with her pet dog, and how he guides her to experience a different realm where she can tap into not only the thoughts of animals, but her own past lives. With dogs Barney and Zac as her guides, Brunke learns the fine art of shapeshifting which enables her to communicate not only with dogs, but wildlife and even plant forms. Some readers may be skeptical of Brunke's experiences, but her writing is so honest, straight forward and raw that it is easy to understand and believe in the experiences that she describes. Her story is not only original, interesting, and compelling but dives into spiritual issues that lie at the core of our lives. Readers who are fans of Conversations with God will definitely enjoy Brunke's spiritual conversations with animals. This is not only a beautiful nature narrative (much of the book takes place in Alaska), but will shift the way you relate to all non human life forms. The lessons in this book will help readers to connect with animals, and all life forms, on a deeper and more profound level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaining Spiritual Benefits of Shared Animal Consciousness 9 Oct 2008
By Cynthia Sue Larson - Published on
SHAPESHIFTING WITH OUR ANIMAL COMPANIONS takes readers deeper into Dawn Baumann Brunkes world of animal communications to the realm of conversations and merged consciousness with other living beings. The shapeshifting Brunke describes in this book is that of sharing consciousness with others, and thereby gaining newfound appreciation for other lifeforms as we let go of our old ideas and habitual patterns, experience life the way other animals live it, and gain a tremendously expanded knowledge and understanding of the significance and spirit of all that is.

The idea that our animal companions in everyday life can also be spirit guides is at the heart and soul of this book, as Brunke shares insights she has obtained from her pet dog Barney that assist her in learning to blend consciousness with others. Brunke's journaling of a variety of plant and animal communications that ensue bring us along on her journey, which ends up illustrating how we are all interconnected -- how we are all One.

The plants and animals who communicate with Brunke share wise messages which sound much like the perennial teachings from long-established spiritual faiths and traditions, which is what gives this Brunke's third book on animal communication a much more spiritual tone than its predecessors. As Brunke's dog, Barney, transitions from life to death, a deep sense of eternal connectedness comes through the messages that Brunke continues to receive from Barney, even after his passing. Many of Barney's messages to Brunke remind us of simple truths which we so often tend to forget, and can greatly benefit from taking time to remember... such as everything you need is right here, right now.

I highly recommend SHAPESHIFTING as a book that can help you transcend boundaries between yourself and others... even those who cannot speak, and those who have passed on. This is one of those rare books that leaves readers feeling a "reader's high" long after the last pages are read and the book is placed back on the shelf, as it continues to work its special magic in our hearts.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Extraordinary Book 7 Oct 2008
By Rita M. Reynolds - Published on
How very pleased I am to be reviewing Shapeshifting with Our Animal Companions, by extraordinary author and intuitive mystic, Dawn Baumann Brunke. This is her third book exploring the deep, spiritual nature of animals. Previously, Animal Voices and Awakening to Animal Voices demonstrated the power and wisdom gained through animal communication, an ability Dawn possesses to the highest degree, using that ability to interact with animals in the most honorable and insightful way. Her newest offering excels in the field of metaphysics, an essential manual for discovering who we truly are in our expanded selves, as we allow the supposed borders between ourselves and others to dissolve through the process of shapeshifting.
I would easily categorize this volume as a textbook, one that should be carefully studied and kept close for personal reference, so rich is the material presented by the author. And in this age of rapidly shifting and expanding awareness regarding all forms of life, we need all the help we can get. But don't be fooled by the term textbook, because once you start reading, you will find it virtually impossible to put it down. Skillfully written, words and sentences, ideas and concepts flow beautifully one to the other.
For much of the book her dog, Barney, is her companion, guide, and teacher, initially while alive in his physical body, but then after his death, in his spirit consciousness. Barney leads Dawn - and us, their readers, into realms that may seem improbable on first glance. Eventually, however, as one reads on, we realize all the possibilities and probabilities Barney and other beings (in a variety of form and consciousness) offer for consideration, and personal practices well worth adopting.
Dawn Baumann Brunke has been well-known and respected in her field of healing, metaphysics and animal communication for many years. Her work with animals and spirituality is a gift to all, and in my opinion, there is no one finer to turn to for the guidance and assistance we all yearn for, consciously or subconsciously, as the world around us and within us changes and evolves. Shapeshifting with Our Animal Companions is a grand book, well-crafted by the publisher, with comfortable print and generous-sized pages. I could not recommend it more highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Opens a doorway in consciousness 6 Mar 2010
By John P. Odonnell - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was introduced to this book by a friend. The last dog I had was very sensitive and I could feel she was communicating with me. I just wish I had understood and knew more about animal communication, I could have worked with her more and learned from her as well as her learning from me. The book is very well written and communicates what the author has learned by communicating with her little
"Barney" who communicates with the authors other dogs. Barney teaches and encourages the author how to start communicating with all species in nature. Barney leads the author through his death process and continues teaching from the other side bringing other groups into the teaching process. All the creatures that are brought into this process emphasize the fact that all is part of Shapeshifting from one aspect to another. It has opened a doorway in my consciousness to allow me to understand my connection to many areas which I have questioned in my life. A truly incredible book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again, a great book from Dawn Baumann Brunke 9 Aug 2009
By Excalibur 45 - Published on
It could as well at the beginning of this book be "The Teachings of Barney", Dawn's dog at the end of his life and beyond...

But very soon it became the teachings of Zak and Max,her other dogs and then those of other animals and all kind of spiritual beings or groups... all about spaceshifting and the astounding exploration of the multidimensional aspect of spiritual life....

It compells you to see all the living beings on Earth as spirits incarnated, with a lot of wisdom instead of just animals without souls or plants without feelings...

By writing that book Dawn did a great service to all animals,and all life on the whole planet.
