It is so fun to be able to talk with Sara Fancy, my mentor in Horse Constellations and Horse Meditation. Sara and her herd of seven horses are delightful! Sara talks on the podcast about her rescue and stories of her horses, how meditating with a horse is different from regular meditation, The Kind Rodeo, how office jobs, humiliation, and a drive to go her own way led Sara to living her Inner Child’s dream, and how being in rhythm with horses can teach you congruence, listening, patience, and leadership.
Also, my introduction to horses a little over a year ago, looking through present-day eyes, letting go of identities to create new ways of being, and how horses tune into the emotion that needs to be expressed without judgment.
Sara Fancy is the owner and director of Silver Horse Retreat a therapeutic equine facility specializing in horse constellations, located in Ranchita California. Originally from the UK, Sara has a long history in the healing arts ie polarity therapy, cranial-sacral unwinding, systemic family constellations, etc. Sara has built her equine business with the help of her seven horses all adopted from life-threatening situations. Sara is also a singer-songwriter and an avid photographer.
