If you want to sink a little bit into nature, or feel a wee bit of magic in your life right now, then join us in this foray into the woods. Among giant tree elders with their wisdom and the ancient mycellium network right under our feet, we run headlong into inspiration with 5 beautiful, empowered horses weaving at liberty through the forest with us.
Güliz Ünlü – BodyTalk practitioner, Equi-Bow therapist and animal communicator – joins me, Sheila (former 3-Day Eventer & Trainer), Tiah & Kumba (my dogs) and my herd on this beautiful afternoon excursion into an old-growth forest. If you have read The Hidden Life of Trees, then this video will have extra layers of meaning for you 🙂
Note: I must apologize for the colors in this video – I am shooting with a new camera and haven’t figured out the settings yet. Then when I upload it to YouTube the colors get even weirder! – I promise I’ll get better… 🙂

Jini…first of all there was so much energy coming through my IPad watching this video I didn’t notice any color deficiency. It was neat that the first words your guests say in the video were exactly what I was feeling/seeing. So much passion & magnetic energy. I have told you in past comments about the truly magical feeling the trees and your horses creates in me and I’m sure anyone who watches and feels awe for Mother Nature. It’s crazy to me to feel so deeply touched even though I am so far from you and on a piece of technology. Horses truly bring the Forrest alive and visa versa. So neat for us readers/watchers that you take time from the experience to document how your guests were feeling and have it relate so immensely to what’s coming through. I love so much the comments about play and how I personally feel the same exact way that it is such a fun way for all of us to learn and to be at ease with each other. Thanks also for the nice views of the upper parts of the trees and roots. Keep your awesom videosccoming at us I love it✌?️❤️?
Oh that’s wonderful to hear Michelle! Video is a really fun medium for me because often what I intend to shoot is not what makes it to the finished version. For this one, it was only in viewing the footage afterwards that the words from Guliz and Sheila took on their own theme and direction. It’s a very cool, creative process. And I’m SO glad the power of the experience is coming through!!
I’m with you, Michelle! this truly wondrous gift of Be-ing ‘Synthesiac”: porous, yummy, vitally interested, every cell alive, and curious, and awe-filled and able to FEEL!! receiving, truly participating in and with, the love and gifts of the a-live-ness, the a-Light-ness of All Beings, in all dimensions of imaginings.. I am really feeling the Elementals tickling awake the metta- physical components of this ‘me’ ; faerys, devas, tree-spirits, wood-nymphs,, oh the most exquisite quantum-ness, Be-coming, e-merge-ing, with the ‘me’ that is hu-man, and the ‘me’ that IS the all of the Cosmos. I love being able to feel beyond feeling, as the human-ness becomes amplified, expanded, in this felt sense of be-ing the living Breath of Creation. isn’t it just so YYYYYYUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMM!!!! this divine participation experience in Jini’s video wow, a rocket ship of heart-bursting love, xoxoxo from sheila
Whee! Finally watched this and what a joy to see some dear critter, human, AND tree friends being their perfect selves. Some of my favourite memories with my own herd are in those very woods…
I just saw this! What a GREAT pic – really captures the ‘enrichment’ a forest can bring to horses lives 🙂
