Way of the Horse: Equine Archetypes for Transformation
Workshop in Lille (North of France), August 22d to 24th 2021
Over the last 20 years, bestselling author Linda Kohanov has done extensive research into the wisdom that both living horses and mythic equine images have to offer people.
In her April 2020 workshop at in Lille, France, Linda will offer an advanced workshop emphasizing the creative and transformational aspects of equine wisdom. Attendance at an Eponaquest introductory workshop is the prerequisite to explore the profound ways that these animals inspire expanded states of consciousness useful in handling life’s challenges and accessing deeper levels of human potential in personal and professional life. Participants will also gain a deeper understanding of the healing and transformational potential of their relationship to horses and learn some techniques for forging stronger connections to living members of the herd.
“In myths from around the world,” Linda emphasizes, “the horse is presented as a powerful guide that can take people back and forth between the worlds, helping heroes and artists to bring the wisdom of the gods back to earth. As I have since learned through leading equine-facilitated human development seminars worldwide, these ancient stories point to a truth that anyone can experience, both with living horses and through interacting with equine archetypes. Working with the archetypes alone can help people take huge leaps forward in personal development, confidence, empowerment, and healing.”
In this workshop, Linda will offer a sequence of experiential activities and journeying experiences designed to exercise greater facility in moving back and forth “between the worlds.”
“Horses model an embodied spirituality,” Linda emphasizes, “one that helps us become more present and functional in the world of consensual reality, while also encouraging us to gain and maintain contact with an otherworldly aspect of consciousness that is creative, innovative and profoundly compassionate. In exploring cross-cultural equine myths about twins, for instance, we learn that embracing the mythic dimension of life is like meeting a wiser, more adventurous aspect of ourselves. The human psyche has a supernatural element fond of improvising on timeless themes, and it can help us make sense of seemingly unexpected or challenging events. A little-known aspect of the myth of Pegasus further illustrates how horses help us access imagination and innovation. And in exploring equine archetypes of transformation, we learn what humans can become by embodying horse wisdom. Here we delve into deeply insightful stories about the centaur and the mare-headed goddess who integrate the strengths of both species, while also representing the alchemy of turning pain and tragedy into inspiration.”
