Overview

Riding into Your Mythic Life: Transformational Adventures with the Horse by Patricia Broersma

Horses, by their very nature, are mythic creatures — they represent in our collective imagination aspects of the human journey at its greatest. In Riding into Your Mythic Life, therapeutic riding instructor Patricia Broersma invites readers on an experiential journey of transformation with these powerful creatures, offering ways to explore life’s events as part of one’s own mythic journey. Broersma has developed her theories over twenty years of working with horses and children with special needs, as well as through a twelve-year series of horse camps for teenagers and weekend workshops for adults. Riding into Your Mythic Life offers readers the opportunity to explore and expand human potential through powerful experiences with horses and mythology. These experiences teach skills for developing intuition, compassion, and leadership, and ultimately for stepping into one’s greater life.
