    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…

    “And what if I’d stayed there?” Anna Twinney’s life changing quote…

    I’ve been hearing this phrase in my head– spoken with Anna Twinney’s voice, over and over for the past few months… Anna spent the last 3 summers here – each year in June, and we all shared some magical times as well as heart wrenching realizations… Last years clinic, for me, was life changing for the best of times, as well as the worst of times – while I was in the midst of end of life challenges for 2 dogs and a horse. (Turns out my horse most probably lost her life due to an antibiotic shot, not the injury… heartbreaking – what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.)…

The horrendous events started after the first shot – edema, infection, whole body filled with air, etc. Fully documented and photographed and shared with…

    Equine Wellness Sessions

    Athletic physical injuries are addressed, plus we also look at the fact that the joints, muscles and ligaments share certain nerve centers within particular organs and irritation in an organ can cause a problem in the joint. The inverse also applies – a problem in a joint can set off a problem in an associated organ. Treating either component will bring about health – treating both aspects ensures optimal well-being.  Causes of problems: Our insides are neatly contained within an envelope called our skin, which works as a defense against outer aggressions. Our skin protects our life. Physical trauma is a destructive action that weakens us. Wounds heal but the…
