Equine Assisted Healing Emerging as a Mainstream Modality
Equine “assisted” development is finally blossoming into what I believe is the ‘season of success’ for practitioners of personal, professional, mental, and spiritual development!
It’s been nearly 20 years since the first publications of the efficacy and seemingly miraculous accountings of personal transformations and expanded awareness through equine-inspired experiences. Most people who have such an experience will share that it was one of the best learning opportunities of their life, and yet, they are at a loss when it comes to articulating what happened to (with, through) them.
Many practitioners still struggle to bring clarity and language to this ephemeral modality of expanding consciousness. In other words, there are no words to adequately describe the encounter of meeting a higher version of yourself through the exquisite eyes of a non-judgemental horse!
I’m on a mission to help change that. If you are a practitioner (or want to be), I invite you to be patient and lean into the rhythm of what is unfolding within our unique industry.
Equine Inspired Learning is Coming Forward in an Unprecedented Time of Parallel Crisis and Birth.
We are experiencing and witnessing the global chaotic disintegration of outdated structures of manufacturing, education, and government as well as global shifts in climate and previously stable human/animal habitats. At the same time, for those that are aware, we have the opportunity and responsibility to be the midwives of the birth of something new. Something fragile and incredibly vibrant!
Every birth is a symbol of a new entity moving from the known into the unknown. Think of a baby coming from the known comfort and safety of the womb into an unknown environment of a new reality! We have a choice to bring with us into this new world the energy of fear and mistrust or the energy of love and excitement for possibility!
The horses have taught me to understand that ‘uncertainty’ is simply an opportunity to trust and lean into Source. Source through me, through our horses, our colleagues, students, clients, mentors, family, and friends. We have the potential to evolve into ONE HERD co-creating from a higher vibration of love, trust, and mutual respect.
Our work is important and facilitates a critically vital component of self-actualization for those that seek expanding awareness for peace, health, abundance, community, and connection.
In order to flow with the current of growth and success emerging at this time, we have to master what we preach in the arenas and round pens and apply it to the implementation of our business on all levels.
We are spiraling out into a greater level of consciousness which includes tweaking old ways of doing business and inventing new transparent models of ‘shared leadership’ and prosperity.
To Your Horse & Soul Success,
My mission is to empower and educate equine-inspired practitioners in the art of profitable program design and marketing. My dream-come-true is to see equine-assisted personal and professional development be recognized and celebrated for the unique transformational modality that it is and to become as popular as yoga and Starbucks.
