JUNE 23-25, 2017
3-Days of Intuitive Riding with Anna Twinney

Day 1: Obstacle Course at Liberty – with emphasis on the horse’s language combined with life lessons

Day 2: T.L.C. and Intuitive Riding – connecting energetically with our
horses. Mutual trust and connectedness

Day 3: Animal communication and Enhancing horsemanship; listening to your
horses wishes – breaking old habits and moving into the new
Kalispell (Kila), Montana

Come see what is truly possible when you go within and beyond…

Day 1: The Obstacle Course at Liberty – Friday, June 23rd, 2017 – 9am – 6pm

We aren’t going to waste any time. On the first day you are “jumping into the deep end” of equine communication! The obstacle course is one of the most effective tools in horsemanship and you will join your equine partner at liberty. You will learn how to communicate effectively with your horse, truly gaining the partnership and connection needed for anything you do together. It is a wonderful way to take your partnership to a much deeper level and have some fun at the same time. It is also a true test of that partnership. It’s a time to strip you of all paraphernalia, connect through an unspoken language, and explore your horses’ true voice! And it doesn’t matter how many times you’ve been in the obstacle course. Whether this is your first time or your 20th, each trip into the obstacle course will teach you another, a different, a deeper lesson about you, your horse and your horsemanship.

Anna developed the course over 15 years ago, and since then thousands of her students from all over the world have worked with the Obstacle Course for a myriad of uses. You will learn how to apply this safe and effective training approach to deepen your use and understanding of the horse’s language and potentially solve all sorts of problems. From preparing horses for the trail, engaging school and therapeutic riding horses, spook-busting, through to establishing a communication system with performance horses and honoring the needs of the retirees, Anna uses the obstable course for any number of reasons. She will show you how to read the subtleties of your horse’s body language and direct your horse on the ground.

Once you develop a rapport with your horse and an understanding of their intricate and subtle language, the fun really begins. Discover what your horse has to say and the life lesson they have to share with you. Don’t think it’s possible? Don’t think they have anything insightful or worthwhile to say? Prepare to be Amazed.

Day 2: T.L.C. and Intuitive Riding – Saturday, June 24th, 2017 – 9am – 6pm

You will begin with Anna’s exclusive Trust-Based Learning and Compassionate Communication. This is the foundation of the ROTH program’s in-hand work… and there’s a reason for it. You will create a solid footing with your horse, set him up for success, and achieve that connection of grace and ease you’ve always imagined. 

Using Anna’s TLC methods you will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of intimacy and relaxation exercises and how to use them correctly
  • Overcome your horse’s challenging habits and behavior patterns
  • Prepare your young horse for his first saddle, bridle and rider
  • Desensitize your horse to common situations and tack
  • Prepare your horse for doctoring and medical examinations/emergencies
  • Earn your horse’s trust and learn how to continue to gain and build his trust
  • Develop methods to read your horse’s mood, personality, character, likes & dislikes
  • Create a toolbox to foster that perfect connection on a daily basis
  • And much more!

Then you will head to the saddle (or in-hand, your choice) incorporating mindfulness riding, potentially leading to bitless and even bridleless riding. You will learn to come away from control and compliance, move into communication and connectedness, and begin to ride with your mind, not just your body.

Day 3: Animal communication and Enhancing horsemanship;  
Sunday, June 25, 2017
 – 9am – 6pm

This day may have the shortest description but it will have the biggest impact on your riding and your relationship with your horse.

In the morning you will begin with animal communication. You will learn how to truly give your horse a voice and be a real partner. Discover how to connect with them, mind-to-mind and experience the most subtle and intuitive riding of your life.

Then after lunch, you will enjoy the Grand Finale! Anna will show you how to take all that you’ve learned throughout the weekend and open up a whole new world of riding, horsemanship and partnership. She will work with you individually to help you solve any problems, break old habits and awaken to a new enlightened relationship with your horse.

Anna is raising the bar and inviting you to take your riding and your horsemanship to a place you might not have even dreamed possible. 

By the end of the 3 days you will understand why we say that the ROTH program is the most unique and comprehensive horsemanship program in the world. There is nothing like it anywhere it and will help you develop the relationship with your horse that you’ve always dreamed of having. 

Space is extremely limited to only a small group of people, and it will sell out fast, so don’t delay or you will miss it!

Commitment to learning with compassion and intent

starry

Over dependance on technology – computers, cameras and cell phones can create disconnect with reality and relationships. When used in a manner that deeply analyzes content that is captured, the depth of awareness can be life changing. I had been considering videoing less because of the disconnect that occurs during the technology recording process… Turns out I would still be my old self had I not revisited the value of reviewing video content with fresh eyes.  I teach ‘seeing’  to my students in every course, I was overdue for a major breakthrough.

For decades I’ve video’d horses – horse events, clinics, lessons, equine bodywork sessions. I’ve also video’d dogs, wildlife, family vacations, life events. Over the past two years it has become increasingly apparent that there are endless levels of perspective and connection when capturing life’s valuable moments as well as learning opportunities. From capturing the simple joy of time spent with family to the depths of an equine bodywork session where the slightest of blinks and breath changes gives huge insight into areas of discomfort – one must know how to capture exactly the views that show the connection of desired intent.

Being behind the lens for the capture– there is an extreme level of disconnect that is required to catch – via zooming, positioning, light balance, background, foreground etc. – the essence of overall images and details. Years behind the lens, then in front of the computer screen is what it takes to do this job… What brings out the value of the capture and the analysis? Why is some of the content insignificant and some breath taking? It boils down to the educated eye – to ‘see’, and then feel the heart and soul of the analysis. In other words, analyzing the insight of the intent of the capture, asking the tough questions during analysis, deep soul seeking connection questions – how, why, what if, level of comfort, discomfort, anxiety, fear…

Then the analysis of viewing – especially with equine bodywork or levels of horsemanship – what are all the details that show up – patterns, trends and how do the details change when viewing by different mind set and perspectives?

Now comes the interesting part and valuable time spent – consideringthinking, putting it together… What are the highlights of significant points of interest and what details don’t seem to matter and then describe why. Finally – what is the connection between significant and insignificant? Overall theme? Lessons to be learned?

Finally, reflection on the learning situations… Is this situation one that has occurred in the past? Is it a reoccurring theme? One time event? What needs to happen in order to heal, balance, modify, release, strengthen?

Exhausting detail, no? Life can be lived in the fast lane – going from one thing to another without reflection, but literally – what is the point? There is always a point… reflection is valuable, painful, enlightening… Application is life changing.

The best life lessons are experienced when the emotions are deeper, more painful or joyful. Earlier this year I was co-host to a horse clinic for the second time. The clinician has knowledge, experience, wisdom, skill beyond measure… I wanted to learn what she has to offer. I helped others get ready who were signed up, offered my best horse to someone else and took another horse. I was deeply connected to the content of the event – wanted to learn as much as I could as well as playing several roles. The clinician stayed at my house, I have many animals to care for at home. I acted as videographer – I video’d the event. All this meaning one moment I was connected to learning, connecting to caring for others, then disconnected – an observer – to view from the videographers perspective, then involved as a participant – needing to connect with my horse – combined energy to work and learn together…

Hindsight – it was an impossible task given my level of fatigue at the start. As it turns out this didn’t hinder – it actually helped – because I couldn’t keep my guard up. The first two days were manageable. The last day, my horse was anxious about being in an area with others, then alone, with my skill set and his actions, he was inconsolable. The lessons I learned this third day were painful – being highly empathic – I could deeply feel his anxiety yet could not help him find comfort. The clinician, Anna Twinney could help him with a simple compassionate conversation. She said he was doing the best he could, pointed out his feelings, responses, she emphasized with him and redirected his anxiety – he responded each step of the way, every time she asked for a bit more – he really tried. I got it – the one thing with the one horse I hadn’t been successful at – a way to deal with his anxiety. I wasn’t concerned about him being dangerous, I was interested in behavior modification, how to help him override his innate characteristics of anxiety and evasion. It wasn’t until months later when I revisited the video of the events on all 3 days, that I gained a fuller, different perspective from what I felt that day. I also could see deeper into many levels of the experiences. Watching the exercises, actions, reactions I gained life changing realizations that regained and directed my power and focus of compassion and intent.

Reflecting on the past in a non exhausted, learning state of mind empowers the future… I am recommitted to capture these once in a lifetime experiences via video, and then analyze, reflect and incorporate the meaning into my life. Personal growth leads to richness of mind, body and spirit.

However you can create this in your life – do it!

TOOLKIT FOR EQUINE CONNECTION

“TOOLKIT FOR EQUINE CONNECTION” WORKSHOP

Fill your toolbox with new skills and deepen your partnership with your horse! Come join us for an amazing day with your horse or work with one of mine!

“What am I seeing or not seeing?” 

In this workshop we’ll explore and study horses innate characteristics in terms of mental, emotional and physical wellness through a series of trials and games. We’ll set up events, allow the horse to respond and we’ll learn how to shape the behavior we want – step by step through clicker training and other techniques. We’ll learn to ask better questions! Through this discovery we’ll evaluate the level of communication, contentment, tension or apprehension, and determine the horses level of confidence and trust. For the horse who constantly moves through to the horse who won’t move when asked, we’ll work with a common language to help you both have more fun together!

The best thing for partnership with your horse is to teach them to relax and release tension!

We’ll also cover bodywork, evaluation tips and techniques for discovering physical boundaries, braces, and discomfort in order to increase the horses ability to interact and offer a ‘try’.

We’ll end by learning a hands on bodywork maintenance technique that includes lymphatic drainage for runny eyes. This powerful energywork is sure to enhance communication and connection!

We’ll address issues such as:

  • “What can I do with my horse when it’s too icy or cold to ride?”
  • “My horses tail moves just a bit and the skin twitches yet I don’t see any flies around. “
  • “My horse keeps walking, can’t stand still. Stops but then walks on or shoulders into me, steps on my foot…”
  • “My horse won’t allow me to touch her ears, poll, mouth, girth area…”
  • “My horse seems frozen – unresponsive yet she knows what I’m asking and knows how to _____.”
  • “All of a sudden – with no warning…”

Much of the work I do with horses begins with connection and balance to recognize and release tension. Mental, emotional, physical tension, boundaries, dullness, hyperactivity and lack of trust can cause all the above and more which results in unease. Even if we think our horse is relaxed and perfect, there are things we can do to check in to their wellbeing and gain a deeper connection.

Nancy Horne has intently studied horsemanship and related modalities since 2001 and has an innate sense of understanding when connecting with horses. Nancy is a technical thinker but also hands on and is certified as an equine massage practitioner, certified in acupressure and essential oils, performs energy work as a Reiki Master, and has completed Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork – AKA- the Masterson Method training through the 5 day Advanced workshop.

Silence is golden…

The plan for 2016 was to teach – equine clinics, workshops etc. but as it turns out – building websites and computer work for others took precedence. Now that Spring has arrived computer work is still a big focus but also I am working diligently on completing each Block for the Masterson Method Field Work study program. This includes Case Study write ups, meetings with a mentor, Coaching weekends and amazing work with horses.  I love this time spent.

Jim Masterson put together a system that helps horses feel better. Through the years I self studied with his book and DVD’ s- for well over a decade – then took the weekend seminar, then the 5 day course and finally signed up for the Field Work Study with the intent of certification. While I may have focused on the goal – during the process of diving in deeply to the course work – I found my passion for learning. The intense studies – collection of everything horse over the past 16 years is coming together and fitting in to what I am currently doing. As Joseph Campbell would say – “Find your Bliss”… Well, I found it and am ‘working it’ with no end in sight!

More soon! Anna Twinney will be here end of June and it will be an Amazing Clinic!

How We Believe Reiki Works

  • Reiki is energy with intelligence and is used succcessfully in hospitals as well as being measured by HeartMath Institute
  • Reiki is omnipresent-present everywhere at the same time.
  • Reiki is omnipotent-absolute and infinite power.
  • Reiki is omniscient-infinite wisdom and knowledge.

The universal life force connects all living things together like a vast ocean. As droplets in this ocean we are communicating with and are connected to, all other droplets in this ocean on an unconscious level. Similarly, every cell in the human body has its own individual position and responsibility. However, each cell is also unequivocally connected to and is unconsciously communicating with all the other fifty-trillion cells in the body. Deepak Chopra, in his book Quantum Healing also talks about how the entire universe is connected.

He explains how particles that are separated by immense distances of time and space know what one another are doing. When an electron for example jumps into a new orbit on the outside of an atom, the anti-electron (positron) paired with it must also react no matter where it lives in the universe. Each particle in our universe has an intelligence that communicates across time and space.

Scientists studying the behaviour of monkeys on the coast of Japan noticed one day a particular monkey had begun dipping his sweet potatoes into salt water before eating them. Shortly afterwards they found all the monkeys within the colony were also dipping their potatoes into salt water.The scientist assumed the monkeys were just copying each other until they discovered monkeys in other parts of the world had begun dipping their potatoes into salt water also. The monkeys were communicating through an unknown intelligence across time and space. The scientists labelled this intelligent communication Morphic Resonance.

Interestingly another study found when giraffes began causing serious damage to trees by eating more of the tree than normal, the trees responded by increasing the amount of tannin in their leaves. This defensive action made the leaves too bitter for the giraffes to eat. Scientists discovered the trees were communicating with gases — an energy with intelligence.

Healing is simply attempting to do more of those things that bring Joy and fewer of those things that bring pain. ~ O. Carl Simonton 

Learn how to balance, replenish and heal yourself, your loved ones and animals with the traditional Japanese healing art of Reiki Level 1. Reiki is ideal for anyone interested in learning more about energy work, how it works and the benefits.  While Kirlian Photography allows us to see energy, we will learn to recognize, feel and channel the energy for the highest good. Reiki can be used to enrich your everyday life, relationships and help you embrace positive change. Receive Reiki, insight, empower, pass on to others

Within days and months of practice, people find they feel in better control of their lives, become more intuitive and feel a stronger sense of purpose, no matter what their background or career goals are. Although these awarenesses of consciousness are usually not achieved overnight, Reiki Level 1 can help each individual become a healthier ‘body of light and love’, shedding negativity and lower vibrations that often prevent us from achieving these states.

All Reiki classes are kept small to keep individual attention at a maximum. Students are encouraged to explore their individual strengths, and each individual’s path and needs will be honored and respected. Classes are taught in a very respectful manner, keeping Reiki a sacred healing art. Class includes both in-class theory (with manual) and hands-on practice.

Reiki is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement process. This process opens the crown, heart, and palm energy centers in the body and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki source.

The Reiki attunement is a powerful experience. Once you have received a Reiki attunement, you will have Reiki for the remainder of your life. While one attunement is all you need for each level, re-attunements bring benefit in many ways.

Pre-requisite: Must have received a full Reiki treatment within the last few years. Call Nancy for a session if you need to meet this requirement 406-756-2327.

Cost: $125 (Includes Certificate)
Class Option 1: Saturday December 5, 10 am – 4 pm
Option 2: Wednesday December 2 & 9, 6:30 -9:30 pm

Reiki 2 course and attunement follows January 6th or 9th
