 Through Linking Awareness – Intercellular Communication and “remembering” our innate ability to communicate with the Animal Kingdom, Lucia has experienced on a deep level how incredibly lucky we are to have animals in our lives helping us in more ways than we can imagine.

Mimi Thorp

Since earliest childhood Mimi felt drawn to animals and nature. Growing up in Holland, Belgium and
Germany she would seek out the company of animals where she could, especially horses. Much of her
time was devoted to the barn, whether riding, vaulting or horse care. Even when young she was always
aware of the emotional impact the animals would have on our wellbeing.

Life finally brought Mimi to Kelowna, British Columbia, a wonderful place to raise her two kids with
much opportunity to spend time outdoors and with the animals.

Her own healing journey brought her into the world of energy and consciousness-based medicine.
Fascinated with the impact these practices had on her own health, she sought out as many
opportunities as possible to study different modalities, foremost BodyTalk. Taking her first BodyTalk
Fundamentals for Humans and Animals brought her to Loesje’s Eagle’s Eye Ranch. While deepening her
understanding of the modality, it was the involvement of the animals in each process and session that
kept drawing her in, over and over. After becoming a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, it was not until
taking Linking Awareness Journey that she integrated the wisdom and support the animals so
generously provided into her praxis to support her clients.

Feeling so drawn to the learning and observation Linking Awareness offered, she repeatedly found
herself monitoring the class. Traveling to Sumatra and Borneo with Loesje and her team was one of the
most impactful journeys, deeply experiencing the connection with the elephants, orang utans and all of
nature immersed in the magic of Linking Awareness Journey, Linking Awareness Adventure and Popping
the Bubble of Doubt.

Increasingly, the heart-based connection with the animals, and the process of neutral observation
shifted from a modality to a way of life bringing a sense of connection and guidance, full of
synchronicities and magic in every day life.

Being able to share this Journey with her community and allowing each participant to develop that
sense of connection with All Sentient Life, to trust their own intuitive senses and most of all to deepen
the relationship with their own Heart, may be the greatest motivator to become a Linking Awareness

“I am so grateful for anyone walking the Path of the Heart, Nature Mind and the Animals with me”
As Rumi said, in the end “we are all just walking each other home”.

Ella Hana Šamánková



Ella was born a very sensitive child. She could see the lights in the dark, the auras around people, feel their feelings and hear their thoughts. Animals have been with her since early childhood, they became her “second family”, but not only animals, she knew that everything is alive and has a soul.




As assistant of a healer and a veterinarian, she learned to observe how animal health issues mirrored the lives of their human guardians. Through touch, Ella could sense what was going on beneath the surface of the skin, what the bodies of the people and animals she touched were talking about. Reiki practice has helped her in her journey of releasing blocked energy in the bodies.



It wasn’t long until Ella realized that she didn’t have to touch animals, humans and all sentient beings to hear, smell, taste, touch, see and feel wth her subtle senses what was going on inside there bodies, in their bio-field and the environment around them. This began her journey of learning about the universal language – the non-verbal transmission of information. Ella soon began to be contacted by people who had trouble communicating with their pets, and began to learn great wisdom from the animals themselves.

While swimming with the Dolphins at Sataya Reef, in Egypt Ella met Loesje Jacob, a mentor and amazing woman who has been blessed to bring to reality the concepts within Linking Awareness Adventures Inc. experiential workshops, where any of us can remember and learn to use this universal language. Ella is now very honoured to be facilitating Linking Awareness Journey and Linking Awareness Journey practical around the world!

Linking Awareness experiential workshops around the world might seem to many like just another “animal communication” workshop therefore Ella invites you to come join-up with her to experience the potential Linking Awareness has to change your life, the lives of humans, animals and all sentient beings around you.

Güliz Ünlü


Güliz was born with a fascination for the Animal Kingdom. As an only child, animals were her constant companions and she made a conscious choice to learn from them for the rest of her life. By age 7, she had her first horse named Turkish Delight, who taught her everything fundamental about BEING in the space of the horse.



Through many years of training and competing with horses, her interests shifted towards the study of various healing modalities that would help both the animals and their humans. The depth to which horses have awakened Güliz’s wisdom within is profound; therefore an even deeper space that the horses and the whole of the Animal Kingdom guided her into was discovered. Güliz continues with awe and the curiosity of a child to explore the deep wisdom, many dimensions of awareness and consciousness of all Sentient Beings. Güliz has traveled to work with animals in many locations worldwide, including Peru and Turkey, as well as participating in Outreach Projects throughout Indonesia.


“My mission is to help others reach this place of joy, understanding, inspiration, and health through the Way and Wisdom of the Animal Kingdom”.

Yuko was born in Tokyo several years after WWII.  

She was not allowed to live with animals in her childhood. 

Fortunately, Yuko was able to live with small animals while raising her children and that is where she began her journey of enjoyment and fun with the Sentient Beings that some call animals!

The Sentient Beings have continued to graciously share the wisdom of the Animal Kingdom with Yuko to this day!

Since dogs came to her family, her life changed little by little. At age 55, she decided to find something new.

Yuko learned and studied many modalities about mind and body, energies and subconsciousness.







She started working as a therapist of many modalities for babies, youth, adult and the elderly.

During this time Yuko realized that the animals living with families were supporting their humans a lot.

There’re many modalities to support and heal humans, however…Yuko had a big wish…

“I want to learn healing for animals!”





In 2009 she met Loesje Jacob, founder of Linking Awareness Adventures Inc.

Traveling to Canada, Japan, South Africa, Indonesia and Malaysia, she participated in many Linking Awareness seminars, meeting and feeling the pure consciousness of many animals. 

Since 2012 Yuko has coordinated the  Loesje’s seminars and individual sessions for Japanese participants.





“I love to observe animals’ behaviour and energy shifted beyond what may be considered normal.”

“I love to observe participants’ profound expansion of their conscious awareness.”











“As a Linking Awareness Journey Facilitator, I feel humble to be an observer for animals, humans, myself, and more.”

Much Love, Yuko
