Nearly 200 horses roam on the desert floor, the scent of their dusty hair with the pungent desert fauna brings me back home to my body and soul. If we are lucky and receive a little rain, the creosote plant will release a musky, earthy smell, and the air will be bright and fresh. The days are warm and the nights are crisp, truly a wonderful getaway from the grey winter skies up north. The peaks of the Rincon Mountains look over the ranch giving the entire experience a dance of inner exploration and heartfelt inspiration.
Over the past ten years, I have traveled to Arizona to continue the Coaching with Horses work throughout the winter. One might think that horses who have carried hundreds of riders on their backs through the desert, often for several days in a row, would be bitter, dissociated, or tuned out to the human experience. Yet, I find just the opposite to be true. The herd knows me now, and they know what I represent and where my heart is and how I honor their wisdom in my programs. They eagerly show up for our program, enjoying the shift from trail riding to taking individuals on a more spiritual journey into their core.
There is something utterly unique about an entire herd of horses being fully grounded and present for humans. Their reliable energy and open hearts can invite one and all on a spiritual journey of awakening, exploring what is between the physical and spiritual worlds. This opening may be unexpected in a more traditionally styled dude ranch atmosphere. Yet I experienced the power of the herd in this way every time I have entered into this unique herd. Even the horses who are not working directly with my group brings healing to the environment.
Today I will roam the ranch and say hello to some old four-legged friends. As I pause and gaze into the deep well of their eyes, I will also note the additional grey hairs and a bit more wrinkles around their eyes. Their bodies two will show the softening of age, even with their continue physical movement daily. My Dad use always to say, “Regardless of what you are doing, time keeps marching on.” Here I am reminded of that.
In so many ways, humans have continued to take and take. And the horse continues to give and give. Last year during the retreat, I facilitated over 40 people offering the Ho’oponopono pray to all of the horses here and beyond. This pray asks for forgiveness. The pray focused on asking the horses to forgive us all of any wrongs done to them and the entire species through all time and space. It was our way of honoring their presence and service to mankind. During the session, I watched over 35 horses licking and chewing as they circled the arena with a human walking aside, as an interdimensional communication was happening between species.
Pray, of any kind, is such a lovely way to communicate and to show gratitude, ask for forgiveness, and sending healing light to others. My prays are based in deep appreciation that I have been granted the gift to partner with horses on this spiritual journey of helping others to transform their journey from a typical everyday repetitive pattern into mystical experiences with a deep connection to all. And as I give my heartfelt thanks, I also ask for clear guidance on how I may continue to serve.
This year I was guided to create a smaller, more intimate event. I removed the word “conference” and kept the word “retreat.” The primary intent of the retreat is to help others retreat into themselves and find their authentic nature through their sacred time with the horses. The horse knows how to bring us back home to the true self.
Additionally, this year I have been guided to incorporate technology into the exploration of the power of the horse to heal and expand the human heart and consciousness. Throughout this year’s retreat, I will measure the change in energy levels of the human before and after they work with the horses. I will gather information about the shifts in the energy levels and alignment of the chakras, stress levels, and the energy levels of organs, before and after the Equine Facilitated Learning Sessions. Having already experimented with this measuring device at home, I am interested to see what may transpire. It has been a profoundly useful experience for me. My intention is for it to be useful for clients to bridge the intuitive knowing into the science-based data.
If you are keen to explore your energy in a relationship with a horse and understand the patterns that you hold within your system, there will be more opportunities to work with me. My newest program Horse as Alchemist will provide you with these experiences.
Horse as Alchemist – NEW PROGRAM
Beginning in 2020, during some of my programs, I will use a new scientific device to measure the changes in the energy field of humans through their interactions with horses. I will start at the Retreat in Tucson this January. I have also reshaped my Quantum Horse program into a new, Horse as Alchemist program to include this compelling and informative experience. The Horse as Alchemist program infuses a deep understanding of the energetic dance between humans and horses. If you are keen to have a deeper understanding of how to influence your energy centers and enhance your energy field, this course is for you.
You will explore on many levels the experience of energy exchange, how to bring more healing energy alive in your life, and how to open up your channels to become more intuitive. Included in this course are individual scans that will show you what shifts and changes in your sessions along with underlying patterns in your system. The horse highlights and
brings to surface what is ready to be seen and shifted. If you are prepared to dive in deeply with the horses, learn several tools and processes to move energy, then I highly recommend you enroll in my Horse as Alchemist program.

After one day off, you then begin the four-day EFLC Level One training segment. This portion teaches how to facilitate sessions employing Horse as a co-coach, teacher or mentor.
We have three EFLC Level One programs planned this year and you may select the one that works best for you. Click here for dates and more information.
I invite you to join me in this ongoing telephone-based program where you will dance and move in the quantum field while accessing new realms of intelligence. The Horse Ancestors will lead you back to the ancient and natural methods of connecting to the Source, giving you comfort, hope and new ways to navigate our often chaotic world.
Expand Your Spirit is much more than a one-off coaching session or spiritual reading. This program is a very specially designed intensive for you: the individual who is ready to create a more soul-filled life directed by her intuition.
The program is ongoing and you can begin anytime. I personally invite you to join me for this wonderful and vibrationally expansive ongoing experience.
