Edie Jane Eaton
The world lost a bright light in September of 2022. We are still in shock that our wonderful colleague, teacher and friend Edie Jane Eaton passed away suddenly after a short illness. We are dedicating the 2022 “Cell-ebration” in her honor and memory. We wish she could have joined us in person.
Edie Jane came to TTouch in the 1980’s on the suggestion of her Feldenkrais teacher. After one demo she was hooked and would become one of our beloved instructors.
Edie Jane was a phenomenal teacher and had a knack for balancing rational, concrete thought and her intuition and spirit. She was driven by curiosity for knowledge and possessed a calm, kindness that put everyone she met at ease. Well-spoken and full of wry observations, Edie Jane loved the natural world, a geologist by training, and had a thirst for adventure, she could count rally car racing as a hobby!
As a friend, she was fun, full of life and always interested in learning more. She had an eye for detail like no other. Edie Jane took many groups to Botswana on safari, horseback and otherwise, and loved the magic of the African bush. Her latest trip had been in May of this year and by all accounts it was spectacular.
We will miss Edie Jane more than words can describe. She changed the lives of so many people and animals over the decades she shared the Tellington TTouch around the world and she was an integral part of the development of the work. Her pivotal analogy of “Shedding Some Candlelight on Resistance” will continue to be shared in her memory.
Her family shared her obituary here.
We have been comforted with the wonderful stories and thoughts shared in our community as we have remembered Edie Jane. We will never forget her and we hope that she knew how life changing she was for so many.
For as long as she can remember, Debby knew she would spend her life working with animals. She began to live the TTouch® philosophy of creative problem solving even before she had any idea this would be her life’s work; she was extremely allergic to anything covered with hair or fur!
Of course she dreamed of having a dog. Her turtle named Herman and her canary, Tangie, were wonderful but it wasn’t the same as thoughts of walks around the block with her very own dog. One day her parents learned that poodles didn’t shed. Shoni, a silver miniature poodle, soon became her best friend.
Debby’s interest in health and well-being was sparked by her childhood companion animals, and continued with her becoming one of Oregon's first board certified veterinary technicians. She grew up breeding and showing horses, which gave her an extensive background into working with many different breeds and disciplines of horses. A horse born with severe neurological damage initially brought Debby to Tellington TTouch® Training in 1984 after the veterinarians had done all they could to help the filly. The amazing progress Spirit made inspired Debby to use the Tellington techniques to improve the lives of animals and their people on a physical, mental and emotional level.
Debby’s passion for helping people and animals in a fun, positive and creative way is evident in the many workshops and trainings she teaches every year. She has been a popular speaker at various international conferences including the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and the International Symposium on Rescue Dogs. She established TTouch® in Japan and oversees the Tellington TTouch® Companion Animal Practitioner Training there.
From the beginning, Debby has used the Tellington Method to help humans as well as animals. Today Debby frequently works with people to help them reduce pain, recover from illness or injury and to improve mobility and function. She finds the Tellington work and philosophy to be an important part of helping people to find balance and well being in their lives. She often says, “TTouch® isn’t just what I do, it’s who I am.” TTouch® philosophy has strongly influenced her life and that of her family. Her two wonderful sons were raised with these concepts and often asked their mom for TTouch® when they had bumps and bruises.
Debby travels much of the year teaching trainings and working privately with individuals in North America, Europe, South Africa and various parts of Asia. She lives near Portland, Oregon with her human and animal family. For more information about Debby visit her website www.IntegratedAnimal.com.

Live Interactive Course with with Debby Potts & Kathy Cascade
Join Tellington TTouch Method Instructors, Debby Potts & Kathy Cascade to learn an effective and positive approach to working with dogs and their guardians.
Working with clients is a fun, rewarding and at times, challenging process. Of course, it’s important to have good skills in working with the animal. However, if you truly want to make a difference, having effective skills in working with the animal’s human is equally essential. After all, it is the human who applies what you have taught them, pays for the session and schedules the next appointment.
Whether you are in your certification process or already a Certified Practitioner, this course will help you to refine and expand your skills in client sessions.
This course can count for credit towards Certification as a Tellington TTouch Practitioner for Dogs, or simply be the continuation of a personal learning journey.
Each session is recorded for future viewing or if you are unable to attend.
