In a Mindfulness state connecting with horses, nature and yourself, as you contemplate the wonders and magic of nature and the free spirit of the horse. This will help you to be more focused, more present in your daily life, mindful of what is around you. This aids with stress, anxiety and fear issues.

Creating The Connection With Horse

Chakra Healing With Horses

Pranayama, mantra and meditation techniques to clear and balance our Chakras. Our Chakras are subtle energy wheels and they interact with Universal energy and with our physical body. They can be put out of balance or blocked through grief, anger, frustration, negative thoughts to others , to ourselves, from the environment we live in, from what others say to us or about us. In this Energy Healing with horses, the horses participate with us, often it is they that come to us to heal and help us and sometimes they come to us for healing, it is a mutually benefit for both human and horse.

Mantras And Singing Bowls - Explore the Power of Sound for Healing and Transforming

Sound Healing is rooted in the theory that the entire universe is made of vibrations. Every structure in the Universe, from the cells in our bodies to the planets and stars ad galaxies is composed of energy and that energy is expressed in various patterns of vibration.

Our bodies can be pulled off center from their natural states of harmony, as our energies rise through stress and trauma, our vibrations lower causing misalignments in our energy bodies and physical bodies. If you feel out of balance or even out of control, chances are you need to center and realign. Horses are in a natural state of harmony, they seek harmony and when thrown out of alignment will come back to center with ease. As humans we have lost this, getting stuck in the Sympathetic nervous system of flight or fight, causing stress, anxiety, fear and lack of control.

Feel the wild free spirit of the horse, allow yourself to let go and be in union with the life force energies that surround you. Connect to horse, to nature, to your True Authentic Self and Be that being your are meant to be, that one that is always there within you. Your true nature is Bliss, horses guide will guide you and help you rediscover your natural state of Blissfulness.

About
About The Host
Terry

Terry

Originally from Canada, Terry found her heart rooted in the vibrant jungle life of Costa Rica in 1995. Back then, Cahuita was a tiny town with one public telephone - and Puerto Viejo wasn’t even on the map. For Terry, life had been filled with adventurous inspirational tales of travel, cultures, languages, foods, and leaping into the unknown. The decades of travel had shown her the best and worst of humanity, the love that transcended all cultural barriers, as well as the hate that could turn human hearts cold and violent. Most of all chaos, surrounded by dramatic family strife, alcoholism, abuse and depression - in hindsight, a collision of unresolved traumas mixed with a deep desire to love and be loved.

The beacon that guided Terry out of her darkest abyss was Yoga with Horses, a journey that began in 2013. As a woman experiencing the solitude of autonomy for the first time, after the dissolution of two marriages and the heartache of losing both parents, she found herself at the crossroads of life at the age of 50. No longer bound by the roles of a dutiful daughter and wife, she embarked on a quest for meaning and purpose. The realization dawned that there was a space waiting to be filled, a path yearning to be tread upon - a path leading to her own self, her unique purpose. It was through the practice of yoga and the serene companionship of horses that she discovered a haven from her trauma, a sanctuary where her spirit could heal and flourish. As well as the monumental strength to release her soul from the chains of generational cycles, to dare to really change, create new patterns and write her own story.

Terry's story is a testament to resilience, a narrative that echoes the transformative power of self-discovery and the healing essence of connection - not just with oneself but also with the vibrant energy of the natural world.

It's a journey that resonates with the desire within us all, to find the joyful love within.
