When in 2013 I, Ines Kaiser, founded Grace.lu, an initiative for Equine Facilitated Consciousness Development, I was motivated by an inner desire of working with the connection between humans and horses, based on authenticity and partnership. I believe that this ancient connection has suffered many injustices and requires healing. By connecting with horses, we humans come in touch with a deeply buried aspect of Nature within us, a connection to something greater, more healthy, more soulful.
Dealing with animals in a coherent way, and with horses in particular, demands that we become more connected with ourselves and question our social conditioning, suppressed emotion and concepts originating from our modern human mind. Simply said, horses invite us to develop personally and to grow into more conscious beings.
