What fun to share Selfseeds with the Boys & Girls Club of Coachella! We made collages on the pages of the Selfseeds Journal. It turned out to be an enthusiastic focal point for sharing experiences with each seed verbally while finding representation in magazines. A wonderful keepsake to take home, continue on the work, and share with friends/family.

Sharing Selfseeds for the Equestrian with Colorado Rocky Mou...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sharing Selfseeds for the Equestrian with the students and equestrian teachers (Amanda and Monica) at Colorado Rocky Mountain School was a pleasure. Selfseeds helped them each create a personalized map of their mind, body, and soul, so when they got on the horses bareback (I really liked the bareback approach which was a lesson for me!), they were able to get very clear and direct feedback from the horses. Both Amanda and Monica observed the students immediately were riding from a different inner awareness/exterior position without direct instruction. The second day included applying Selfseeds for the horse while working with the newly adopted Mustang and talking about the application of the 11 selfseeds while partnering/training the horse on the ground. Next, the students had a lesson with a saddle and more awareness was applied while giving direct instructions as they worked in a quadrille type file. I was very impressed how the principles of the selfseeds were applied in their personal lives in the days between the lessons! Wow! Awesome to watch selfseeds planted, nurtured, and grown over just a few days. Thank you for this inspiring and heartwarming experience!!!

“Sue Eoff’s Selfseeds program initiated almost immediate and visible transformations among our riding students. Her knowledge, humor and over-all awareness of all that contributes to the horse-human bond is truly amazing. She first introduced to our students, thru a variety of effective methods and movements, the seeds that consist of the Selfseeds program prior to getting on the horses themselves–and then the magic happened! Each student evidenced a noticeable difference on horseback; they were focused, soft, reflective, centered and ‘linked’ to their animals. And these are teenagers, mind you! Sue also worked with the school’s mustang and immediately demonstrated the need to ‘see’ training aids thru the guise of the horse. Over-all, Sue provided us with horse skills and life skills in that sometimes the best methodology of all is to simply be–be present, be mindful, be aware.”

A Great Day Sharing Selfseeds For The Equestrian in Carbonda...

 

“A big thank you to Strang Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado for providing a beautiful and welcoming site for Selfseeds for the Equestrian.”

Maree McAteer and Sue Eoff gave a one day clinic that included three sections: Selfseeds for the rider, Selfseeds on the ground with your horse, and Selfseeds while riding. The eleven selfseeds provide fundamental awareness tools for developing and improving every aspect of being with the horse, feeling, and timing whether dismounted or mounted. At lunch, Maree shared her experience of Ren Hurst’s fundamental principles of being in right action with one’s self and one’s horse. The weather was beautiful, the participants were enthusiastic about exploring a deeper part of the horse partnership, and joy was permeating the arena.

“Thank you everyone! We are jumping up-and-down and cheerleading for the use of Selfseeds to easily and clearly take people on a bridge of an ever developing relationship with their horses and riding. We are looking forward to more opportunities to share Selfseeds for the Equestrian in either a one, two, or three day format.”

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!

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!
