Spirit Horse Education, LLC
We have the great privilege of doing our work on the unceded ancestral territory and current homeland of the Wiyot Tribe, otherwise known as Humboldt County California. We are located at the intersection of the mighty Redwoods and the Pacific Ocean. Our herd thrives here, on the ridge above Iksori (Elk River) and under the watchful eye of the circling Turkey Vultures.
Sitka Springs Ranch
Our herd is made up of some amazing beings... they are the real magic that drives this work! We do not give specific information or backgrounds about our horses. When you experience a session with them, you get to allow them to be whatever or whoever you want or need them to be. They seem to enjoy being the shape-shifters that we need from session to session, moment to moment. This is the magic of horses.
We also work closely with other beings, trees, animals, plants, elements, weather, and the natural world around us. Our surrounding environment shapes and informs us. We are part of the mighty and tenuous web of life. We can access information, stillness, peace, clarity, insight, or truth from these beings when we spend time with them.
We give gratitude daily to the land, people, animals, and spirits that allow us to work and live in this sacred place. We pay the Honor Tax regularly as physical reciprocity to the Wiyot People. We strive to be good stewards of the land, always listening and learning from our Indigenous mentors and non-human guides.
