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.

Selfseeds for Elementary School Children–Grades Three ...

Test Trial started! Selfseeds for elementary school children has begun! Introducing two to three seeds a week with homework in the journal. Wow, the kids were already very informed about fitness and nutrition, but I see the challenge is in the application and discipline of the information. No different then the adults! What a privilege to start with the public school system. A big Thank You to the two teachers who have trusted me to step into their classrooms.

The fall will be the launch of Selfseeds as a foundational program at Two Bunch Palms.

Maree and I are looking for a site in Colorado to launch a Selfseeds for the Equestrian Retreat. Participants will bring their own horses and spend three days examining themselves, ground work with the horses, and riding.

One more month in the desert and then I am off to Colorado, India, Portugal, and Hungary for the summer.

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.

Quick, Convenient Touchstone to Fitness

fitness

I was given two exercise devices (rowing and core toner) to experiment with at home. I added a few free weights and made a point to exercise once or twice a day for 5 minutes or more, in addition to my normal gym routine. It was easy to access, great as a supplement to watching television, uncomplicated to navigate, and the best part—it made a difference in my peace of mind and body tone.

Cheers!

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
