Wu Wei is a Taoist Concept that can mean Doing without doing, or Effortless Action, sometimes Non Action. Weaning foals can be quite stressful for the mare and the foal if it is done too early and in a harsh and abrupt manner, this episode is about how I discovered a way of weaning foals that was easy for the mare and foal and the humans involved!
In taoism, and in other traditions too, the different energies of the 5 elements are regarded as being very important. And they express themselves in fire earth, metal, water and wood. According to taoist tradition all matter, all beings, and all relationships are comprised of some energetic combination of these five elements. The energy of the different elements are dominant at different times of the year.
In the previous Podcast Episode I talked about how Equestrian Tai Chi practice helps the horse to have sovereignty of himself and rise above feelings or anxiety he or she might have, and in this Episode I talk about how the connection we develop with Equestrian Tai Chi practice helps our horse feel safe with us.
In this Episode how ‘Equestrian Tai Chi can help the horse to have Sovereignty of Himself’, I share about how Equestrian Tai Chi practice can help the horse to rise above feelings of anxiety, and to safer in this world.
To begin I share about how the background from which the horse experiences his world is created, and how this governs how he operates in his everyday life.
Then I share about how it’s possible the horse may have a different experience of our practice than we do (not withstanding the obvious differences) and how he can be more affected than we are, and therefore benefit more obviously.
This Episode is about how we can engage or horses attention through connecting through our Chi or energy.
As well we can feel a shared connection with our horse to the world around us as the Chi moves in the higher layers of our energy.
