A short 150 years ago horses were both a means of transport and beasts of burden in all countries on earth though, the era of the machine age was starting to build up to what it is now.
Horses have been the mainstay of support for much of humanity since possibly 4000 BC, and have been mans companion right up until today.
Steadfast and patient these great beasts have other qualities that we in many ways have lost touch with, especially as we leave the rural sector for urban dwelling and city life.
However, there is much to learn from this potent animal as their raw energy helps ground us both in the moment and the recognition that nature still retains many secrets. within the animal kingdom.
Rosemary is a facilitator of many equine programs where horses interface with at risk children and adults as well as a therapeutic medium to help draw people out as well as express care and companionship.
The Zen of Horses -
Humans - Can be perceived as left brained dominant verbal - use of language, logical, reasoning, analytical, has identification, ego, feel separate, and have more a sense of me than we.
Horses - On the other hand can be sensed more as right brained, relational, have present moment awareness, non verbal, intuitive, they have the power to remind us silently of the union with all life around us.
The herd as a single thriving entity - its communal, interconnected and demonstrates unification in action. The mare leads from the front, and the stallion covers the rear, protecting and moving the herd forward. A grand interplay of patriarchal and matriarchal energies.
Every member has a harmonizing purpose through which both the member and the herd thrive. Horses are our greatest teachers for practicing conscious community (herdlife) and being and creating in the now moment.
