Jon Turk to present ‘Talking to Animals’

Wilmer event takes place Wednesday, September 27th

Anyone who has a pet or who has encountered an animal have communicated with that creature on some level. May it be verbal communication or non-verbal, most people have had some interaction with animals. For author, adventurer, and scientist Jon Turk, communicating with animals around the world through his many travels has awakened a way of communication he says has been dormant for two million years.

“You communicate with animals and then that awakens a form of communication that was inside of us for two million years and I think it’s a very powerful and very necessary state to be,” said Mr. Turk.

In his words, this deep emotional intuitive subconscious way of thinking worked for humans two million years ago but now the human race has developed logic storytelling.

“We developed language and logic storytelling, creating mythologies and this has been very successful and at the same time leading us onto the brink of some very serious problems,” said Mr. Turk.

This communication process he has found with animals connects him to a former way of communication that throughout evolution the human race has lost. Mr. Turk said this way of communicating without words is fundamental for peace and harmony on earth.

“By allowing ourselves to be open to this inner way of thinking, way of communicating, we will approach the world from a more blessed and compassionate manner,” said Mr. Turk.

Mr. Turk will be presenting his experiences on encounters with wildlife in a talk being hosted by Invermere Wildsight on Wednesday, September 27th at 7:30 p.m. at the Wilmer Community Hall. During his presentation titled “Talking to Animals,” Mr. Turk will address ideas he believes are critical for the human race.

“I’m trying to get out of Jon Turk’s wonderful travels into a discussion of ideas I think are critical to the survival of our species,” said Mr. Turk.

While everyone has a story of communication with animals expect to hear some of Mr. Turk’s interactions with beings across the globe. Admission for this event is by donation and all proceeds will go back to the environmental work in the community.
