The Origin of Our Name
Windhorse Relations is a blend of Eastern and Western spiritual teachings.
Windhorse is the energy of basic goodness and self-respect symbolized on prayer flags with a horse centered.
This self-existing energy, Windhorse, is strong and exuberant and brilliant. It can actually radiate tremendous power in your life. This basic goodness can be ridden like a horse. By following the disciplines of warriorship, particularly the discipline of letting go, you can ride the wind of goodness. When you connect to the energy of Windhorse, you can naturally let go of worrying about your own state of mind and you can begin to think of others.
“Windhorse is a magical horse representing the inner strength of a human, his soul. Its appearance is supposed to bring peace, wealth, and harmony.”
Shambhala The Sacred Path of the Warrior – Chogyam Trungpa
Prayer flags are gentle reminders, bringing us back to our essence, our soul, and helping us to open our hearts and minds. When we hang prayer flags, we create the intention for more kindness for ourselves and all beings.
Relations is from a Lakota Nation term, “Mitkuye Oyasin” which means “For All My Relations.” This beautiful saying is about respect.
~ it brings to our minds and actions that which is known in our hearts ~ we begin respecting ourselves, our needs, our emotions, thoughts and ideas as well as those of others ~ showing respect means honoring our individuality as well as our unity with all beings ~ it is through respect, we live in mutual harmony.
Windhorse Relations™ acknowledges the basic goodness in all humans and our connection to the oneness of life. Our programs hold reverence for the divine nature of the horse and accept the American Wild Horse as our teachers of self-awareness, unconditional love, tolerance, acceptance, surrender and patience.
The mustang has always been America’s partner in its growth and greatness. Now a new relationship with these insightful and loving horses can heal troubled souls and guide us into the new paradigm of powerful, peaceful partnerships with ourselves and others.
