    The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness*

    http://fcmconference.orgOn this day of July 7, 2012, a prominent international group of cognitive neuroscientists, neuropharmacologists, neurophysiologists, neuroanatomists and computational neuroscientists gathered at The University of Cambridge to reassess the neurobiological substrates of conscious experience and related behaviors in human and non-human animals. While comparative research on this topic is naturally hampered by the inability of non-human animals, and often humans, to clearly and readily communicate about their internal states, the following observations can be stated unequivocally:  The field of Consciousness research is rapidly evolving. Abundant new techniques and strategies for human and non-human animal research have been developed. Consequently, more data is becoming readily available, and this calls for a…

    Business Integrity and a message

    There’s nothing more important or valuable than time and integrity. Time spent, time given, hired time, and donated time. Integrity – walk our talk and talk our walk – stand behind what we feel, speak and do. The next valuable items on my list are the following: trust, honesty, respect, truth, wisdom, humility, courage… When we are asked or are hired to share our time to do a job to help someone, this signifies a working relationship. The responsibilities lie with both parties, for clear communication, for teamwork. for giving our all to get the job done to the greatest good for all. This is especially important when others have tried, solutions did…

    My new online equine bodywork course is getting great reviews!

    My new online equine bodywork course is getting great reviews! Equine Partnered Bodywork will introduce a light touch technique we can do WITH our horse. We will discover the connection of how to ask for and observe our horse’s consent to be with us. By applying a light touch to the neck of a horse, we will see and recognize different levels of response. As a result, we will discover that by applying a light touch and staying on the point or area, the horse will ‘process and release’ their own tension, be it physical, mental, emotional. We in turn will feel our stress level melt away into relaxation. (This works with dogs as well, course coming soon) Nancy Horne “Nancy, it’s…

    It’s that time of year again…

    It’s that time of year again… When the weather begins to reach temperatures of 45-55 in Spring the plants, shrubs and trees begin to wake up… This means pollen will soon abound all around us along with fungus, mold and everything else that triggers Spring allergies. Keep an eye and ear out for breathing issues – if your horses, dogs or other have a deeper sound coming from their lungs, it is time to act. Check the hay source for mold and fungus. Flick the hay – and if you see a dust cloud – beware!! This could be black mold. What happens is the hay is cut and baled.…

    Learning With the Intent ‘To Be’…

    Intent – the most expansive word in the english language…More to come on this, but for now: From non-linear learning to expansive application of skills based on feel and intuition Linear learning is a step by step process to get from point A to point B or a pattern that is done the same over and over with a little variation. One would think that learning to use a software program like the Adobe apps – Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Illustrator would be a linear learning style. One would think woodworking would need to be a linear process, and equine bodywork as well… The answer is ‘a little’, but really “it…

    ‘End of life’ presence… the essence of time.

    ‘End of life’ presence… the essence of time. When the end of life advances, it is a time for celebration, for honoring connection, sharing eye contact, hugs, joy, bliss and even connecting with saddness. Honoring grief and loss is a skill I’m still working on, as is keeping air in my lungs as we get closer to the light… This process gets harder, yet lighter, as I get more present, as I see and understand where we are going, as I feel so out of control. The richness of eye contact and soul to soul connection is what quality life is about. The more I do ‘for’, reaches a point…

    Presentation on Bodywork Technique for Evaluation of Discomfort

    Horses communicate with us constantly… What if they told us where their discomfort areas are with the blink of their eye? What if we could help them release the kinks and blocks? It is as easy and pointing and staying there… The thing is, we also need to prepare ourselves to enter their world so we can listen… 30 minutes that will open doors in your awareness to better connect with your horse. I suggest you begin with your body language where I left off – except with no halter and lead, stand as close as you can before your horse glances or turns her head away. (I needed to…
