Selfseeds for Kids

It was so much fun sharing Selfseeds with kids. Their enthusiasm, honesty, and insightfulness was inspiring. They all gave the journals a thumbs up! The teachers were supportive and creative adding the seeds into classroom teaching opportunities. Looking forward to more classes starting in the fall.

Pacing The Day

Happy 2017 as the New Year!

Experimenting with when to exercise, when to meditate, when to stretch, and so on. Meditating before exercising is working well. In India, I was exercising before sitting, because I would sit for longer periods of time. Exercising before or after work is okay. Exercising before and after work is a bonus. Hydration is very important. Eating regularly keeps me fueled for a long day of activity. Partnering is included in my normal day of work. Awareness of weight distribution is a must for staying centered on the horses. Selfseeds are easily a daily practice.

The journal is getting printed this week!

Starting The Walk At 7, 200 ft. Elevation

IMG_8805

Starting a hike at 7,200 ft elevation and immediately walking up immediately tests one’s fitness. The raw beauty makes one feel profoundly humble to be part of something much bigger then one’s self. I will put the total experience in the Selfseeds Personalize 5 category even though the hike was several hours.

My Horse, My Heart, My Soul

51RKE5H-RpL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

The book came from a seed planted with my first horse, Mariah, who I rode for hours, alone, and in nature. Over forty years later, the child who became a horse trainer, traveled/worked around the world, and never lost the inner thread for the passion of horses. “In horses, we borrow freedom” has been part of the thread. The book is dedicated to the horses and is offered humbly as a voice for the horse.

Super fun to share Selfseeds with riders and friends in Indio, California. Enthusiastic and inquisitive group!

Cheers!

Sue

Tahquitz Equestrian Facility presents
Selfseeds Awareness Clinic
with Sue Eoff
Sunday January 10th at 1pm
WHAT: As aspiring, well intentioned riders we always need to look at our part of the horse and rider partnership. How can we become more sensitive, have better timing and coordination, as well as a developed sense of the horse? Selfseeds was originally created to help riders better understand their strengths and weaknesses through a comprehensive wellness/awareness practice. It has continued to develop and grow into an awareness opportunity for all two-leggeds. Selfseeds includes eleven selfseeds practices (stillness, emotions, weight distribution, fitness, etc.) that are based on five minute practices. A person can plant a few selfseeds regularly or all eleven as part of a personal garden to nurture, support, and grow. The interactive exploration of Selfseeds starts on the ground, so bring something to sit on, comfortable clothes, and an open mind. www.Selfseeds.com for more information.
WHEN: Sunday 1pm at Tahquitz
WHERE: Tahquitz Equestrian Facility (we will convene somewhere dry and flat. Bring a towel or blanket to sit on.)
WHO: YOU! Anyone and everyone all levels, any discipline. Spread the word! This is for riders and non riders alike. No horse needed.
THANKS: This clinic is being put on at no charge courtesy of Sue Eoff. We welcome her to Tahquitz as a new addition to our team. Sue’s passion is classical dressage. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience, an innate passion for the horse our partner, and the skills to teach, ride, and train horses and riders of all disciplines and levels. You can read more about Sue at www.waltzinghorses.com We hope you will come join us this Sunday!
QUESTIONS/CONTACT: Please contact Laurie Cunningham if you have and questions Laurie@tahquitzequestrian.com or 760-250-8418

Inner Work

IMG_8233

When I look back over the past 4 years of extended stays in India, my focus has been on learning about the place behind the mind, the quieting of the mind, and the ability to live with a more stable sense of inner peace. It has taken single-pointed focus and grace. I wasn’t a meditator, but it has required sitting still and reflecting inwardly as part of the teachings. Plus, integrating the inner work in all of my more outward life. Try just 5 minutes and see what happens.
