Reacquaint yourself with the art of self nurture  and the powerful transformations that occur when you speak up for what you need. 

Having been in the nursing profession for almost two decades, I have developed a deep understanding of the healing nature of nurses, and I know that many of us came to this profession to make a positive difference in people’s lives. To heal, yes, but also to ease sorrow, to provide comfort, and to be an advocate for patients and families who are in need. Often we get so caught up in our work that we forget the advice, “Healer, heal thyself” and we allow the art of nursing to become a burden that wears us down. When we do not care for ourselves, we forget how to fly. When we do not heal ourselves, we lose our healing touch and a piece of our soul begins to die. 

Feel the music of the soul through horses, art and music.

By spending time with great healing energies – of horses, art and music – we are immersed in a sea of love and compassion and our journey back to wholeness begins. This is where we start at Art Soul and Horses: stepping away from giving to others for a while, in order to move the energy of love and compassion inward. This is the magic of horses and art. When we engage in sacred conversations with horses and joyful creation of art, we are able to connect with Spirit and we have a greater ability to re-connect with our life’s passions.

By making a conscious effort to heal ourselves, to love ourselves and take time out to nurture ourselves, we can more powerfully bring the energy of love and compassion to every person we come in contact with in our daily life as nurses. A simple act of self-love and self-care can help us grow our ability to touch others with joy, and expands our healing capacity. 

Often, we don’t know where to look for support. We have been overwhelmed and emptied by our dedication to others. We have lost sight of our bliss. By allowing ourselves to be guided and healed by horses, and to connect with our highest self through art, we can find multiple paths to solace and renewal.

We look forward to being here for you,
Vivian, Yanni, Luca and Skye Mama
