Vincent Spiaggia, a dear friend of mine, sent me this interview that I’ve attached below.
I felt I needed to share this with you. After listening to this interview with Jane Goodall and Vandana Shiva, I wanted to suggest that in this New Year we personally take an active role in what we can do to help these causes. One way to do this is by suggesting to our youth that they seek careers that will support the changes we need to make, in a way that this interview is pointing out.
I believe the quickest way to stop human destruction, on the issues discussed in this interview, is educating our youth not to be a part of the corporate world when it goes astray in these matters. I see this problem for the monster that it is and I feel it is important to show our youth how they personally can help create a better world.
If the corporate world can make these rules of “seed control”, then we as individuals will no longer have any form of freedom or rights in these matters and we will loose the ability to have any kind … Read more

We become students of life while training horses using the Waterhole Rituals.
We also become students of the horse by shaping our leadership so that we may bring well-being to the horse. This kind of effort can uncover the secrets of life that empower the human spirit. It opens a door, which allows us to share a connectedness with all beings.
I have learned from horses that when I lose the connectedness while training, if I wait until it returns, my horse will be more willing to follow my lead. Then the dance we share together will have a greater meaning than if I had insisted without that connectedness.
Universal Code of Conduct
There is a special code of conduct in nature that opens the lines of communication. I learned about this code of conduct while on my journey communicating with horses. Both animals and humans rely on this code of conduct in order for our oneness to be shared. Generally, we do not “know” what this code is, even when we rely on it. I set out to define this code of conduct so that I could guide others that wanted to communicate with horses, for a spiritual friendship … Read more

Here is the information I promised my current online Waterhole Rituals class on how to develop a draw on your horse at Liberty dancing for the “call up”.
What the class was doing in the “call up” was stopping and “backing up” when the horse was not in front of them. This makes it hard for the horse to see his handler. The class had a tendency to be behind the horse in the “call up”, which put the horse leaving his handler, making it more difficult for the horse to want to return when called. You want to be in front of your horse for the “call up” for his initial training. In this position the horse is coming towards you when you are backing up. In this position it is easy for the horse to return. Since you are working in a rectangle the rectangle plays an integral part in helping you to be in the right position for the “call up”.
When you are influencing your horse to move independently from you, with lots of energy in trot or canter, you will notice that you are closer to one side of the fence line than the other. … Read more

Finding the still point within yourself opens the door in connecting with nature. This still point I am speaking of exists when you are able to communicate with horses and other animals. Connecting with animals and nature is gained from returning to an ability that is deep within all of us. Whatever the reason we are drawn to horses there is an opportunity to get back to our true nature because of this urge. The first step of my program Sharing Territory is all about this.
Having a deep empathy is the first door in discovering your true nature. Knowing how to have an empathic interspecies connection allows life to present itself to us in a greater supportive way.
Anna Breytenbach shows us clearly in this video I am sharing with you what state of consciousness you need to have to access the connection to all living creatures. By watching her connection and communication with animals and seeing the changes that take place from her influence is mind altering. This connection is a supporting element to our future survival on this planet so we do not continue to tear it apart as many civilizations are doing. I believe it is … Read more

From the desire to reach your goal, one sometimes forgets to enjoy the act of communicating and personal empowerment. What causes this problem is the lack of interest in how to connect with others from a desire to accomplishing your needs. In my mind reaching for your goal is a way to enjoy the relationship with your horse further. Going through the process of reaching your goal gives you a way to experience the personal well being from the act of communicating so that you may feel the resonance of life. What exists in the resonance of life is that there is a battle going on as the music is playing in your heart and within the horse’s heart. This battle actually makes the dance sweeter and keeps you young and enthusiastic.
Many mistakes can be made without knowing it. You can think you are too strong when you are too weak. You can forget to keep leading. You can lose your grit which can cause you not to be truly authentic. However, when horses have their freedom, they love the journey that you bring to them.
To get to the point of connection that I have with my horses … Read more
