The mission of Medicine Horse Sanctuary Society is to support wellness, the release of trauma, and the harmonious co-existence of all sentient beings, through the care and protection of Medicine Horses and through the provision of opportunities for people of all cultures to experience healing benefits through interaction with Medicine Horses.
Medicine Horses are equine empaths: mares and stallions (geldings) born into a wide variety of settings, distinguished from other horses by their unusually large hearts, naturally gifted in moving energy in themselves and in other horses and human beings, and typically identified by intuitive healers.
Medicine Horse Sanctuary Society supports the development and refinement of non-adversarial communication between humans and also between humans and all species, and thereby increase individuals’ and groups’ ability to release pain, alter restricted energetic dynamics in a system, and to experience and offer a greater flow of love.
The objectives of the Medicine Horse Sanctuary Society are to:
• Revive ancient knowledge pertaining to Medicine Horses.
• Promote understanding and wellbeing of Medicine Horses.
• Enhance wellness by enabling, and teaching, energy grounding and rebalancing through a variety of programs and visiting options.
• Host events that foster cross cultural reconciliation between First Nations and other Canadians, on both individual and community levels.
• Offer sanctuary to Medicine Horses in need of temporary or ongoing shelter and care.
Provide the ground for study of energetic interactions between human and horse that result in healing: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Provide opportunities for youth to learn how to be with horses in a natural non-dominant, non-adversarial manner through the language of the horse, MareSpeak.
Medicine Horse Sanctuary Society serves horses recognized as Medicine Horses, horse owners and trainers, people in pain, students of Consciousness, and children and adults of all cultures
January 2019 the call went out to create the sanctuary. Many answered the call and a board was selected, a name was chosen as was a mandate. Monthly meetings were held which included preparing documents to move from being a British Columbia Canada registered Non Profit to a Registered Charity. Our application was submitted in October and is currently under review. In October 2019 we entered into an agreement to provide a program to five students who attend the WSANEC Leadership Secondary School. What began as five students attending once a week has morphed toward fifteen who take turns due to financial limitations. With your help, through donations, we plan to expand to provide opportunities for all of the children who wish to come.
A NOTE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
" In 2019 I put the call out to form a board to assist me in finding a way to give the best care to a herd of five gifted Medicine Horses, to provide opportunities for people from all walks of life to spend time in the healing energy field and to map out a plan of succession for the ongoing maintenance of the horses. The Universe heard my call as did some very talented people! I am so grateful to those that jumped in with both feet and have worked diligently in this first year to make a difference in so many lives. Thank you! " Tina Barnes
