Avantika Mathur, BSc, MSc

Avantika is a researcher with an interest in our intuitive abilities to connect and telepathically communicate with animals, and the implications of this in transforming the human-nature divide and bringing animal perspectives to the table. Avantika coordinated the International Multispecies Methods Research Symposium in 2022 and 2023. She's currently completing a research fellowship with Dr. M.J. Barrett, Adjunct Professor at the University of Saskatchewan's School of Environment and Sustainability. Their research focuses on the lived experience of Intuitive Interspecies Communication. She's also a co-editor of a Special Issue in the Journal of Organizational Ethnography called Intuitive Interspecies Communication and Multispecies Ethnography: Re-searching Dialogue and Knowledge beyond the Human. She leads the research and content development at an international corporate training company, where she relates concepts of business ethics and corporate responsibility to the emerging fields of climate change, sustainability and environmental, social and governance (ESG). Avantika completed her BSc. in Health Studies (University of Waterloo) and MSc. in Global Health (McMaster University). She hopes to create awareness about the spiritual relationship between all living beings on the planet. She is passionate about restoring these sacred bonds, and exploring concepts like collective consciousness, reincarnation, dharma (soul purpose), and soul contracts.

Dr. Barbara Shor, DVM

Barbara has loved and worked with animals all of her adult life. With this love for animals, and her background in ethology, or animal behavior, and professional dog training, she began veterinary school at Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 1983. After working for some time in private practice, and then completing a prestigious residency program in non-domestic animal medicine, Barbara fulfilled her lifelong dream of living and working in East Africa for a full year. Upon her return, and after working in private practice for a couple years, she realized that there is more to animals than simply their physical presence. They are sentient, conscious, wise, loving beings. To honor this calling, she became an animal communicator and has worked since with private clients and their companion animals. She also has had a thriving speaking and teaching career, and in 2010 published her book Soul of the Wild: Intimate Messages from the Hearts and Souls of Elephants and Whales. She is currently writing an updated version of this book. It will now be a series of books, beginning with Elephants.  Barbara is passionate about sharing with others what she has discovered over her many years of experience - that animals have much to share with us and that we are all truly connected.
