About Horse Therapy and a Dolphin's Touch
"I went thru your blog and I knew the story of Rowan and the Mongolian horses/shamans.
We have 2 horses here ourselves (were given to us as a gift. The thoroughbred mare had an accident/poloracket injury in her left leg and suffered a haicrack fracture. Was given up as hoplessly lame. 3 months of hard work, daily massage, healing clay/herbal, homeo etc--now she is totally ok...and so sweet...) and I did therapeutical riding with disturbed kids.
My feeling is: Horses - unspoiled by human wrong treatment - have the power/generosity to give healing energy to autistic/disturbed kids.
Don´t try to explain it, at least not "scientifically".
The more I read about spececialized speech therapist etc. the more sceptic I get:
Autism/disturbances can be healed by being with horses, shamans, WILD dolphins etc...the more "highly educated human specialists" get involved, the more sceptic I get: They are just taking a lucrative ride on another beings capacity to heal.
What I mean is this: I had the great privilege to get into touch with a group of 45 wild dolphins out there in the Red Sea in Egypt.
My partner at that time had -due to severe problems with her daughter, who crashed psychologically- severe headache for 3 days non-stop, preventing her to sleep.
The dolphins came to us--body-touch!- and her pain was gone instantly. It stayed gone.
Please surf the net to see autistic children interacting with - please wild- dolphins - and see the results, which the docs and scientists are unable to explain.
There was a phantastic video-documentary of a UK man, suffering from manic depression for 35 years. He got into touch (body!) with wild dolphins - and was cured. He was in tears with joy, saying things in an interview later: These dolphins could do to me no doc and no therapy could do in the past 35 years..."
Best of luck with your kid
