Saturday 29th July
Fringe Workshop (with Anna-Saqqara Price): The Way of the Horse
Dawn Oakley-Smith and Anna-Saqqara Price introduce you to ‘The Way of the Horse’, a therapeutic system of Soul and Personal growth that works by combining the Celtic wheel of the year with Elemental Horse Archetypes and Horse Goddesses which they explore by using Soul connection, Shamanicm Relational/Natural horse work and Equine Assisted Learning. On this ‘Way of the Horse’ intro day you’ll work with horses and each other to explore boundaries, yours and theirs, and experience how to meet and safely connect with these magnificent beings. You will journey with drums to meet the elemental spirit of Horse and the Horse Goddesses seeing which horse Goddess Calls to you – Wild Child Epona bare back riding, Lover Rhiannon and her white mare, Mother Demeter as the Horse-headed Goddess or The Crone Queen Maccha on her NightMare?
Horses are incredible guides, both in the spirit world and in the physical – in their core essence they are healers and teachers.
Dawn Oakley-Smith is a Shamanic Natural Horsewoman; she has been working with horses all her life. Recently specialising in working with people suffering with Trauma, Autism, and Special needs, combining her training in non-violent communication based methods, intelligent horsemanship and Equine Assisted Learning, with a more shamanic Soul centred way of working.
