TTouch CELLebration
November 5 - 8, 2009
Santa Fe, New Mexico!

Welcome to the second Tellington TTouch CELLebration. Gathering together in thanksgiving for the precious gifts our animals bring to our lives, brings transformational Light to the planet. As we web the world with our Heart Hugs, we are sending the vision of gratitude, tolerance, understanding and compassion for animals, for ourselves, and for our fellow beings.

Realizing, according to the now-proven concepts of quantum physics –

  • that we are all connected by the Divine Matrix,
  • that every thought we have does make a difference,
  • and that once we come together we will always be connected through this very Divine Matrix

These realizations add significance to our days together and give us an opportunity to join our hearts and our voices in gratitude and to support each other in finding ways each one of us can make a difference.

The following is our schedule for these four inspiring and educational days. Each day will be wrapped and spun with vision, spirit, laughter, and information. This is a supportive, creative time for us to come together and help mold and shape the vision of TTouch in the world for the years to come.

The Magic and Science of TTouch!

Celebrating Profound Interspecies Connections

CELLebration 2009Lindy Decker, South African TTEAM & TTACT 1 Practitioner, attended the first CELLebration and is joining us in spirit. The gentle, yet focused attention on this dog is what makes the Tellington TTouch Method so successful at changing behavior.




CELLebration 2009Frederic Pignon at his home in Southern France. Here he sits with 2 stallions, TTouching the poll and mouth of one, and TTouching the nostril of the stallion he is riding with his soft shoe to calm him. To see more of Frederic, visit the YouTube Channel from our TTouch website.




CELLebration 2009Robyn and I in Scottsdale having a delicious sister moment. Robyn’s brilliance and dedication to this continues to take TTouch to animals and their people. She will be joining us by skype at the banquet and again on Sunday morning.




CELLebration 2009Mugs is the beloved companion of Jane Reed, who can not be with us this time to photograph our event because she is honoring the final stages of life with Mugs. In August she emailed me asking for my thoughts. Mugs has a tumor in his mouth and her vet recommended euthanasia. I connected with Mugs and he did not want to go. With the support of Dr. Janet Varhus and Ella Bittel, Jane is walking this sacred path with Mugs.

How Do I Get There?

The Sandia Shuttle runs from the Albuquerque Airport to Santa Fe and will drop you right at the La Fonda Hotel. Round trip fare, as of this writing, is $45 - but you don't have to rent a car, and it takes you right to the hotel!

While in Santa Fe . . .

To fully appreciate the cultural and geographical beauties of Santa Fe, you may want to arrive a day early and leave a day or two later. Visit the Bandelier National Park, Puye Cliff Dwellings and Tent Rocks websites to get a sense of the phenomenal beauty awaiting you. You may want to consider car-sharing to experience the spectacular countryside less than an hour's drive from the hotel. And of course, visiting Santa Fe is such a treasure -- just experiencing this unique culture is not to be missed.  

Make Your Reservation Now!

This is just the start. There is much more to come and we'll keep you informed. But be sure to call the La Fonda as soon as possible to get the special room rates. View pricing and sign up for the CELLebration on the TTouch website.   Put your name on a list if you would like roommates or car shares for a pre- or post-conference exploration of the Santa Fe area.

Hope to see you in Santa Fe!

I'm truly honored to be among all of you for this very special event -- a time for sharing education, wisdom, heart, and spirit. What a blessing to have animals bring us together. With your help, we are, indeed, changing the world One TTouch At a Time.

Aloha and Blessings,

Linda Tellington-Jones
