Animal lovers are as diverse as their animals. Which means, that like our animals, we each struggle with different things and in the same breath we all struggle with exactly the same things. Things like how to navigate our beloved furry friends parting this world or how to know what to feed them or do for them so they live a life as long and healthy as possible. As animal lovers, we may feel isolated in our challenges, because we are, by our nature, not always the most extroverted of creatures (hence why our animals are so essential to us).
As a long-time horse women, I struggled for years with hyper-independence aka. having a terribly difficult time asking others for help and feeling safe in community, even though paradoxically, meaningful connection was one of my most essential needs. I filled the gap with my connection with my animals, but it never quite did the trick. Out of the healing of this aspect was born the Cowgirl Re-union and All Lit up and my Whole Horse Apprenticeship. Opportunities to go deep and get meaningful in a world that can feel a little devoid of real connection. And so it is with all of my offerings.
My hope is that, in some way, these events, programs and experiences bring you what you are needing, and that they may serve to both deepen and richen your relationship with your animals, but also with your friends, family and life. And I would ask that if one resonates for you or for a friend, and you feel inclined to share, to do that. This work expands through your participation. My offerings reflect me clearly, they are diverse, a little silly, and about all sorts of different seeming things, but in the end, they are created to hold space, to foster creativity and possibility and to bolster a sense of community, empowerment and unending curiosity.
And without further ado…
