HeartMath and Horses with Sam MacLean
Sam explains how she works with HeartMath, we discuss some amazing new research about trees and Sam explains more about the history of HeartMath, biofeedback and the role of the horses. Sam explains how HeartMath can help people succeed who find meditation difficult and the difference between mental chatter and intuition.
Sam talks about why people can reach a plateau with their horses and we discuss taking their behaviour personally and understanding horses as horses. After this Sam explains how to look at the micro and the macro levels of our relationship with horses and we discuss judgment, how to find perspective and the question of suffering.
In this part we are discussing Universal forces and I tell the story of Gracie and her gift. We talk about awareness of the other dimensions in our society, humanity, how to integrate ourselves, responding in love and the ebb and flow of life.
These are some links to the books and podcasts we mentioned in Part 1 (Plantwave is different from the article I referred to but still amazing!)
Over the arc of Sam’s career she has worked as: a fitness professional, public speaker, university lecturer on the mind-body connection, non-profit fundraiser, integrated marketing communications specialist, and more. It took a midlife trifecta of a divorce, unemployment and a fall at the top of a mountain to finally re-orient her life toward her passion: horses.
Her mission is to make a difference in the lives of horses and their guardians by creating heart-centered connections that support the return to harmony. Her whole-horse body-work focuses on equine acupressure, myofascial release, massage (including shiatsu, tui na and trigger point), and Reiki Shinpiden level (animal and human).
Sam also likes to share her love of HeartMath, T-Touch, energy work and other amazing modalities to improve how guardians connect with their own horses. She is a certified HeartMath Coach and Mentor and a former associate instructor at Elemental Acupressure. And, her most meaningful work is providing compassionate comfort-care to horses, their guardians and herd-mates as an end-of-life doula…offering harmony in life and in death.
