Anyone who has admired a horse galloping across a field has stepped into their mythic life, if only for a moment. Horses by their very nature are mythic creatures - they represent in our collective imagination aspects of the human journey at its greatest. In Riding into Your Mythic Life , therapeutic riding instructor Patricia Broersma invites readers on an experiential journey of transformation with these powerful creatures, offering ways to explore life's events as part of a personal mythic journey.The book brings the author's work with horses together with her studies in mythology and body-based healing modalities. Readers are invited to reframe their lives into a larger vision through exercises with myth and horses, allowing for even painful events to contribute to a renewed sense of commitment and enthusiasm. Riding into Your Mythic Life offers horse enthusiasts and professionals as well as therapists, educators, and lay readers the opportunity to explore and expand human potential through powerful experiences with horses and mythology. These experiences teach skills for developing intuition, compassion, and leadership, and ultimately for stepping into one's greater life. They help develop an awareness of subtle cues in oneself and others - both horses and people - and ways to orchestrate this awareness for a more joyful and effective life.
