WHY HORSES?

 

It is said that horse’s mirror our emotions, they have the ability to sense what is foremost in our agenda, emotionally and intellectually before we realize it for ourselves.

 

This can be either profoundly comforting or intimidating, depending on what each of us uniquely brings into the arena.  It is a place of metaphor that has direct translation to the workplace, primary relationships and into our hopes and dreams.

Lifestyle-induced illness, including eco-anxiety, calls for a different type of guidance, one that focuses not on the individual’s shortcomings and personal history or on building better daily coping skills, but on the cultural context that’s keeping us disconnected from our innate natural wisdom that would guide us in how to live a balanced and harmonious life.
