This magical day begins in the presence of great teachers from the animal kingdom. Horses possess the ability to act as conduits of connection to Self, to others and to our spiritual oneness, and can therefore deepen our meditation experience.
In ancient wisdom teachings the horse represents physical power and unearthly power. In Shamanic practices around the globe, horse enables shamans to travel and reach Great Spirit. More than one legend speaks of the clairvoyance of horses and their ability to recognize those involved in healing and spiritual connection.
In this meditation we will tap into the rhythm of the horses’ presence and gentle hearts to deeply connect with your inner wisdom and intuition.
We will be seated outside on chairs in a circle with one or two supervised horses. The meditation will be self-guided and the horse(s) will be free to move around us. They may elect to hold space for us from a distance or they may feel inclined to offer specific individuals energetic support. As co-facilitators in this process we will leave it up to them.
After the horse meditation we will break for a light lunch and then go deeper under Matthew’s guidance with the Breath Empowerment, Healing Sound Journey and Energy Cultivation practices.
Horses naturally have a very large energy field which has served to keep them safe in the wild. Their gentle yet powerful energetic presence will be with us throughout the entire day.
“The Breath Empowerment is one of the most intensely powerful energy healing practices I have ever found. After 30 years exploring martial arts, meditation, yoga and reiki I had never experienced energy like this before.
As in my sound healing journeys, this sacred practice routinely produces a profound experience for anyone willing to sincerely try it.”
The Breath Empowerment is done lying down on a yoga mat and no prior experience is necessary. It is one of the few physical exercises you can do that increases your body’s alkalinity; this is extremely healing as massive amounts of energy enter your body and create an engine-like vibration.
Matthew will be right there to guide you through the process and prepare you for the next phase of the adventure – a transformational healing sound journey. The frequencies Matthew channels through voice, intention and presence create a sonic environment that dissolves the boundaries of space/time.
Energy flows and insights emerge.
You will than learn and practice simple yet profound Qigong movements that create a thick magnetic field for strength, grounding and healing.
A note from Matthew:
“These practices have helped me through the toughest of times, and help fuel my energy and vitality as I continue a rigorous schedule of performances, workshops and travel. I am thrilled to share them with you because I love to see people light up with abundant energy. Plus, it is super fun!”
This is a fantastic opportunity to deepen your own healing, spiritual connection and self care.
What to bring:
- Important – Bring a pair of closed toe shoes to wear in the horse pen. This is required, not optional!
- A hat and weather appropriate clothing to keep you comfortable during the outdoor horse meditation.
- A yoga mat or cushion you can lie down on in the loft.
- A light lunch – There are no restaurants or stores nearby so bring your lunch! Please keep it light – especially no sugar – you will want to stay alert for the remainder of the day.
What if it rains?
- No problem! In the event of rain we will meditate with the horses inside the stable. (Again, dress appropriately for the weather)
- We’ll be in our stunningly beautiful loft above the stable for the breath empowerment and sound journey. Energy cultivation will be outside if weather permits…If it rains, we will still have an amazing day!
