We have looked to nature for teachings and healing throughout history. We have ventured into the wilderness in search of vision, clarity, and connection. In today's world, technology and the complexity of our day-to-day existence insulates us from the wilderness and can cause us to forget our true nature. Returning to the wilderness helps us to slow down and move with mindfulness and self-awareness. It supports us in remembering our greater purpose and meaning. Reconnecting with the natural world imparts a strength and wisdom that we can internalize and apply to the challenges created by society, human relationships, and career. Being in nature and in the company of horses allows us to tap into the deepest part of our selves and feel a connection to everything around us. We can then begin to truly be in relationship with our selves and others.
“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”
