Christine Matthews Shares about Her ROTH Internship

Internship at ROTH

 

When Anna and Vin initially suggested I return to Colorado to do a 3 month internship at the ROTH Ranch after completing HHC, my first thought was what a wonderful opportunity it would be to learn so much more.  My second thought was “F$%&!  Me?  An intern?  They must have either had too much Costa Rican sun, got the wrong person, or forgotten that I’d only just managed to overcome my fear around horses enough to get a halter on – well, half on – without desperately seeking the nearest fence to vault over – or perhaps crawl under would be more apt!  Of course, they hadn’t and my time with them has been wonderful.

The goal was to have more handling experience, and to become more familiar with the day-to-day running of a horse ranch: feeding, pasture management, fencing, being present for equine professional visits (farrier, chiropractor… etc.) and, of course, getting to know the horses, their needs and understanding the dynamics of the herd a little more.  My greatest challenges were fear, of which I still had a sizeable amount, and the belief in myself that I could actually achieve what was required in an internship, particularly the physical requirements.  I developed a very effective stalling strategy when doubt or fear crept in called “I can’t!”  Anna, thankfully, had an even more effective counter-strategy called “Yes, you can!”  She was right!!  I could!

Honey and I

I have learned so much and as it is with the most valuable kind of learning, this has been on many levels.  I also know there is much more to learn.  My fear has diminished greatly in comparison to what it was and without it getting in the way so much I have been able to experience the joy of “being” with the herd and “seeing” them in a way I wasn’t able to before.  I feel great gratitude for this, for what the horses have shown me about myself, and for the healing this has brought.  Great gratitude, too, goes to Anna and Vin for the bestowing of their knowledge, their unwavering support, and the amazingly good humor shown as a strange Kiwi/Brit blundered about within their lives and all over their property!  Even more gratitude goes to the universe for instigating everything and for keeping everyone, human, equine and canine, alive and intact, while that blundering went on!!!  It has been ……………amazing!

Anna’s Communication with Horses in Action 3/2/1
Reaching Out in the Round Pen
Do you chase your horse in the round pen or do you drive your horse?  
The difference; one is dominance based and the other leadership based. 
 
Do you consider all natural horsemanship lineages to be the same?  
This is not a training technique, this is about the language of the horse, a silent language beyond the spoken words.  
 
Are you looking for obedience, control and compliance?
We are not, we look for collaboration.  
____________________________________________________________________________
Do you really know what you are saying to your horse?
Watch the video below and find out!

You will learn how to:

  • Talk to your horse through your body language, energy & intention
  • Create a 2-way communication system with your horse
  • Use your eyes like a pro in the Round Pen
  • Understand how horses perceive your actions and the how’s behind the why’s.
  • Determine when the Round Pen is not the right tool for the job
  • And much, much more…

When combined with the horse’s language, the RP will open up a whole new world for you and your horse.  You will finally learn how to resolve your Round Pen issues and gain the leadership with your horse.  Through communication, honesty and mutual respect you will be able to create the trust-based relationship crucial to a good partnership with your horse.  Create a lexicon that far exceeds the RP environment and experience a language that goes beyond body gestures.

Reach Out To Wisdom Testimonial

ROTH Reach Out to Wisdom 2011 Participants

As the owner of a highly successfully Spiritual Business Coaching Company the experiences I bring to my clients is not only of utmost importance to me, but chosen extremely carefully. It is my high intention that my clients are not only receiving the highest service possible from myself but from any outside facilitators that I partner with to support the growth of my clients and their businesses. It is with this high standard in mind that I chose to partner with Anna Twinney and Vincent Mancarella, of reachouttohorses.com, to bring six of my highest level clients to their Reach Out to Wisdom Course. My intention was that this course and masterful facilitation and techniques of both Anna and Vin – and of course the work with the horses! – would lend a physical and spiritual component of business breakthrough that could not be delivered in truly quite any other way.

Not only did Anna and Vin meet my standards, expectations and intentions; they far exceeded them.

Anna Twinney is a masterful horsewoman, dynamic teacher, and one of the highest level intuitive group facilitators I have ever had the honor of working with. Her ability to take an art-form such as horsemanship of such complexity and intricacy and be able to deliver to a group of healers, coaches and heart-centered entrepreneurs with NO horse experience whatsoever and not only have these entrepreneurs comfortable with horses at the end of three days, but completing tasks that that are of a significant horsemanship level. Most importantly, she also holds the ability to translate the accomplishment of the task to support my clients in authentically experiencing the business and personal breakthroughs they came to the course to receive. In many instances, breakthrough and blocks that some had been unsuccessfully able to shift for years. They are now free and available to achieve their dream success in a way that was never quite available before.

Lending to Anna’s mastery is the brilliance of the partnership dynamic between Anna and Vin as well as VIn’s own incredible coaching and facilitation skills. Though Vin is not a horseman himself he brings an element of depth observance and sage wisdom that was an integral part in supporting my clients in being able to truly connect the bridge between what was taking place with the horses and how this relates to their business. In more instances than one he was willing to go the full distance

Reach Out to Wisdom 2011

with a member of the group gently, yet with clear direcction guiding the path to internal discovery, awareness and release of life-long limiting beliefs. Also, his joyful, warm, natural humor brings an inviting and light energy to a journey that otherwise, perhaps, could become very heavy due to the seriousness of the nature of the work with the horses.

It was very clear to me before going into this experience that horses are the mirror for your Soul, but to have that mirror held up for three full days by such masterful teachers is priceless. I know that not myself nor any of my clients will ever be the same again. We are all taking away lessons that will play a key and intricate part for each entrepreneur being able to bring their message to the world and to be generously rewarded for that delivery in the largest of ways.

Obviously, if any of what I have shared so far resonates with you then I highly recommend that you secure your spot in the next Reach Out to Wisdom course right away. These courses fill up quickly and there is absolutely no solid reason to put the clear, solid connection with your destiny on hold.

Not only am I extremely grateful, but I will be back! Thank you Anna and Vin!

Sisters MASTER Reiki

Good Morning Anna,

I wanted to let you know that Karen and I had our first Level 1/2 class this weekend. We did a Friday/Saturday class and had 5 students! We were so blessed and had a great time. The ladies in the class were so great also to provide us feed back and their enthusiasm was awesome!!

We used the lesson plan we got from you and made it fun. It feels good knowing we sent 5 wonderful/powerful ladies home with the confidence that they can do this. In fact 2 of them have already emailed they have done 2 sessions on family members and all they could say was WOW!

Thanks again Anna for the training and guidance that you provided us. Please tell Vince that we used the group medizations and they loved it!! I am pretty sure at least 2 of them will be buying them as well!

Karen & I have kept in touch with both Margaret and Amy. We have a monthly Reiki Share at Margaret’s house and last Thursday was one of the most intense sessions I had ever had but sooo needed to prepare for our class!

I hope all is well in your world and hope to one day soon cross paths again if nothing more than to have a cup of tea and swap a Reiki session!
Namaste,

Cindy 🙂

A Beautiful Update from the Reach Out to Wisdom Course

On My drive home from the course some things came flooding back to me. I used to work with animals, and due to an illness I was side tracked as the physical work became too much. I had fears of returning to sanctuary work because I felt I might “let the animals down again”. (Silly Stories) Boy was I feeling sorry for myself!

How could I continue to help animals and the natural world if I could not physically do anything?

At a lose for what direction to move into, I sought out a life coach…..This must be 8 years ago now. It was a 3 day workshop that  I took with her and 2 other students. I was not expecting a new direction with animals, more like having to accept the fate of doing something I do not love or care about. But by the end of that workshop I felt so confident in my direction as an Animal Healer. I dove into Animal Communication, and took two beginner classes with two different instructors. Carol Gurney being the last one where I met Anna.

I came home and took a Reiki 1 class, and I began practicing. Well self doubt met me every step of the way, and it got the best of me. I hung up my Reiki, and the animal communication was also drowned out for the most part. It was still there, the animals were still talking to me, but I just did not engage for the most part.

It was clear to me after being in the Reach Out To Wisdom course I was to revisit these things again. It was clear because of the Joy that filled my heart when I thought about them. Absolute JOY!! These things were just lovingly waiting there for me until I returned.

My intention is to focus on animal healing, and the environment. I wanted it to be painless on my bank account, and be as near to my home as possible. I love how the universe answers! There was a walk for animals last year for a local shelter, and I participated in it with a group. The group organizer is also an animal communicator. I knew she also practiced some different healing modalities, but was not aware of what her focus was. I was not having much luck researching online, so I emailed her………..

She emailed me back saying she is a Reiki Master, and her focus was on the animals & the environment, and she was starting a  new class in October, and would I like to attend? She charges a nominal fee because she does not want people to be deterred from taking the class.  Beautiful!

Pepper the horse that was giving the big message all summer to take the Wisdom course first before any other, and walking away from me, etc., is now walking over to me, hugging me, loving me………….I have opened myself up, and am letting the Reiki flow, and some of the horses there are responding incredibly even getting in line to receive.

I did one of your meditations away from the horses the other day. I was outside up on a hill. I visited Pepper before I hiked up there, and he was very busy grazing, and so off I went. After the meditation I returned to the barn. As I approached the pasture…………..there was Pepper waiting at the gate for me. I offered a heart connection like the one I shared with Dakota and it was beautiful!

So I am flying high and feeling good, and I will continue to say thank you over and over! Thank You.

AUGUST 2010 REACH OUT TO WISDOM

At the end of day one I thought, “This has been one of the best days of my life.”  At the end of day two I thought, “This has been one of the best days of my life.”  At the end of day three I thought, “ This has been one of the best days of my life, and I can’t believe the weekend went so fast!” The Vin and Anna team, along with the horses, created a magical learning experience and I am so grateful.
THANK YOU – Dawn Lesinski, CT

INSPIRING-CALIBRATING-SOFTENING!Thank you for allowing me to find the authentic me and to feel how that feels – magical!
Rebecca Hoppe – United Kingdom

Taking three days out of my regular routine to stop and reflect and refocus would not have been possible had not Anna &Vin given me the opportunity.  Once enrolled & begun, their guidance, clarity, vision, & exceptional teaching styles & language reintroduced me to what is truly important and honorable about being alive.  The possibilities are all ours; to be reminded that to be of service is foremost was refreshing.
Thank you – Elizabeth Marvin, VT

Working with Vin and Anna and the amazing horses and animals at Ray of Light Farm has opened new energy and understanding.  I decided to come to this workshop as soon as  I saw it offered and having little understanding of what to expect, the three days were beyond any reality I had embraced.
Thank you – Lynn Lewis, NY

The Reach Out to Wisdom course was a wonderful three day course to participate in. Vin & Anna created a safe environment to let your guard down and be able to take a deep look within yourself.  What I was able to learn about myself was eye opening and very inspiring.
