Another life altering equus workshop with Koelle Simpson has just taken place in South Africa, and I have been involved another beautiful year.
This year was special, as we had two of Koelle’s master facilitators (Erin Cutshall and Christy Lambert), and another three of her certified coaches (Anna Kerkhoff de Sachi, Daggi Bayer and Susan Bainter Baghdadi), sharing the coaching activities with Koelle and the horses. And as equus coach-in-training, I also took part in a session.
I have progressed from being totally befuddled, yet completely fascinated, by Koelle’s work, to organizing a SA workshop so I could experience this work again and figure out what it’s really all about, to being part of the world-wide sisterhood of equus coaches trained by Koelle. As one of my equus sisters, Beth Harmen, has said, “Once your intention is expressed, removing pressure and allowing more space, invites the horse – or opportunity – to come to you.”
Also, I have progressed from being from being unsure of myself to knowing what it feels like in my body to be centred and in sync with everything around me, and how to get there at will.
” There is an interesting peace in knowing that there is more to learn than I can in this lifetime, so there is absolutely no pressure to get it all done. So fun just playing.” – Jennifer Moman Voss, another equus coach.
Such is the transformative work of equus coaching: Play and deep peace and seeing the world and yourself in a new way.
If you would like a taste of this amazing work, set up a session with me and a horse teacher, and let’s see what unfolds.
