Daughters of the Wind

Women & Horses… on the path of the peaceful warrior

11. – 19. Mai 2024 /// Andalusia / Spain

(This course is specifically for women. You do not need any experience with horses to take part)

“You’ve probably already met her…”

The peaceful warrior in YOU who, no matter how hurt she feels, how small or big, how poor or rich, has decided to walk the path of her TRUE SELF.

 

And this warrior confidently guides you through deep gut feeling to free your true SELF from the corset of instilled rules of etiquette. You start to show up strong and stop saying YES to everything.

This is what it feels like when the peaceful warrior takes the reins to lead you into a life of your TRUE SELF.

She is an archetype that every woman carries within herself

– She carries deep knowledge of the sacredness of the connection between humans, nature and their beings and is prepared to intervene in a protective manner when the sacredness of this connection is disregarded, desecrated and humiliated.

 

– She is braver than her own fear, which makes her so similar to a wild horse.

 

– She follows her heart and what fulfills her most deeply, knowing that this is her strength to be able to truly GIVE.

 

– In past advanced cultures she was the element who was able to set boundaries to men, who left the path of their heart in order to exploit nature instead of serving it.

 

It’s time to give a clear boundary to our own inner man who exploits instead of serving. It’s no longer about men and women, it’s about our own inner aspects of female and male essence, which we can bring back into a new balance.

Are you that WOMAN who is ready to reawaken her peaceful warrior spirit?

 

 

 

 

If you are this woman then join us in the circle of women and horses and set off on your journey in the company of incredible, living horse spirits.

 

Together we will heal our wounds with and through horse medicine and, guided by the horses, we will forge the armor of unconditional self-acceptance and the sword of your deepest truth as peaceful warriors. These will be your tools to uncover your true self and integrate it into your life.

Your Coaches

LARISSA SIMON

…is an ambassador for the horse-medicine. Anyone who meets her encounters their true self in interaction with her and the horses. It is very important to her to initiate people of all ages into the art of self-discovery. As soon as a person is able to reflect on themselves in depth, beyond right and wrong, the process of healing and finding the TRUE SELF begins. Her allies are the horses. She herself has been walking side by side with them for more than 20 years. She lives with her husband and 13 of her own horses on a finca in Andalusia.

Desiree Dior Commey, Metsa Yaka,

Metsa Yaka is a passionate practitioner of ‘inner work’. As a shaman, she works with various master plants and horse medicine. Her intention is always to discover the root of the ‘problem’ in order to heal and transform in a profound way.

In her trauma-oriented work she adresses the wisdom of the body and the emotional body and implements elements of energy, body and process work.

Guided by her strong intuition, her clairvoyant abilities and a deeper understanding of the holistic picture, Metsa Yaka holds a space of presence, clarity, love and non-judgmental permission in which people and animals find their way into presence, healing, reconnection and can find their inner wisdom.

She also works as an ambassador and translator for the horse and animal world and supports animal-human connections to find a deeper understanding, grow with one another and form an authentic relationship.

What’s waiting for you:

 The wonderful, wild and pure horses

of the Horse-Inspiration Academy

Why alive horses as co-coaches?

Dancing freely with a horse has the power to free you from the corset of a past that did not serve your true self.

The horse is an image of a liberated WOMAN. Untamed, infinitely loving, powerful through unbridled liveliness, deeply connected to Mother Nature and powerfully decisive when necessary. A woman like this can and will turn things around for the better. Such women are needed now.

Together with your “teacher horse”, guided by Larissa, you will start the journey to these innate qualities.

Cocoa ceremonies and breathwork with Metsa Yaka

Cacao Ceremonies are originated all the way back to Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America. The spirit of Cacao – also called Mama Cacao – was worked with in spiritual ceremonies to open up the heart, to bring clarity, inner harmony and to connect to ones creativity. The heart opening Medicine can unlock euphoric states, release emotions and enabels you to connect to our Higher Self, our wisdom within, the loving energy in our body and will also calm the mind. Cacao has been used for centuries to heal the mental, physical and spiritual body.

Through Conscious Connected Breathing, we can overcome the barriers of the mind and increase the oxygen supply in the brain and in the entire bloodstream. The neuralogical network is stimulated and hormones are released, among others, Anandamides – also known as the “Bliss Hormone”. From a state of connection, emotions, stress and anxiety can be released, our own awareness and creativity are increased and we come into a feeling of inner peace, love and compassion. Our deeper truth can be revealed.

The Medicine of Cacao and the Medicine of our own Breath is an incredibly powerful combination, allowing us to delve deeply into our process.

Dance of the Jaguar – Ecstatic Dance Cacao Ceremony with DJ Xaguar

We open a sacred space for an emotional release and celebration ceremony. The Dance of the Jaguar – an Ecstatic Dance Ceremony with Medicine House music and the heart[1]opening medicine of Cacao, held and guided by medicine man, DJ and producer Xaguar. Ecstatic Dance is a free-form spiritual dance practice with the intention of creating a healing journey, transforming one’s consciousness and connecting with one’s inner self.

During his life’s journey, Xaguar discovered the magic of electronic dance music with its pulsating and vibrating energy and became a DJ in the 2000s, which brought him into many popular electronic music clubs end events mainly in Munich and Berlin.

After he embarked on his spiritual journey in 2012 and turned to his inner work, he immersed himself in the world of Plant Medicine, where he learned the art of shamanic healing work with sacred teacher plants. For 7 years now he has been leading Ayahuasca ceremonies, Hapé ceremonies, Cacao Breathwork ceremonies and other individual healing sessions throughout Europe under his medicine name Sanken Tsoma.

Human Design Readings mit RUNA

Human Design is a system that combines astrology, the chakra system, I Ching and Kabbalah and uses your birth date to reveal your energetic blueprint. It can help you make decisions, give you a better understanding of yourself, and give you greater clarity about your life purpose and potential.
Runa is an expert in human design. With the help of human design, she was able to better understand herself and her dynamics with other people, make healthy decisions and therefore live more authentically. Since then, she has been passionate about sharing this knowledge with other people.

But Runa has another gift. Her presence alone creates a field of consciousness and inspires authenticity, clarity and self-care.
 

The retreat takes place in the Cinco Lunas Seminar Center

An oasis in the middle of the nature reserve of the Sierra Grazalema, where we will be lovingly served vegan meals and will all live together in the guest house for our time together.

We go in 8 steps

Step 1: THE WOUND

Finding the deepest wound within you with the help of one of the two wise horse souls Gitana and Amaro.

Gitana (brown horse) was a deeply wounded creature as a horse. Traumatized, she withdrew completely into herself. She was the horse with silent tears in her eyes. Today she is healed of her would and developed into the horse with a huge field of empathy.

So far many had found permission in her presence to let go and let the wound be there. Gitana will also guide YOU with her warmth and gentleness.

Through Amaro’s traumatization (white horse), in which he not only experienced physical pain, but also an injustice that led to a violation of his dignity as a Horse, as a Stallion, he opens an energetic field for us with his being and his special energy quality in that, when we consciously immerse ourselves in it, we can recognize and become present with our own wounds.

With the clear message to accept these with dignity and strength, he also calls on us to take personal responsibility for our shadows and supports us in finding this inner alignment with an incredibly wise, clear, fine and compassionate presence.

Step 2: HEALING THE WOUND

Through a cocoa ceremony, led by Metsa Yaka, we heal the wound, holding space for each other within the Sisterhood. 

Step 3: THE GIFT OF THE WOUND

Behind every wound there is a gift waiting. Our ancient horse soul Durango, a powerful black Lusitano, will help you find YOUR gift. In his presence you will “remember” who you really ARE and be able to recognize the deeper meaning of the wound in order to fully integrate and transform it.

Step 3: TRUST & RESPECT

The dance with the horses begins. In sessions led by Larissa and Desiree you will learn to dance freely with a horse. The horse will reflect to you how much strength and width is vibrating within you.

Available for this are:

Our young, wild arabian mares Black Pearl, Obeja and Isthar, truly fiery daughters of the wind, our white Lusitano mix Chulito, a charming son of the wind, our king among horses, Gitano, an Andalusian son of the wind and our wise eldest, the black Arabian Vidau .

Step 5: WORKING WITH THE SHADDOW

With the help of a technique from the art of acting, mask work, you will actually descend into the realm of your witch to finally free her from her shackles. Let yourself be surprised by what you will find in this “underworld” of your own. Larissa has been doing this work for more than 10 years with many people of all ages. You will immerse yourself in worlds that are truly mystical and magical.

Step 6: BACK TO DANCING WITH THE HORSES

Now we go back to the horses and you dance with a horse again. Horses reflect liberated forces from our own “underworlds” in such an unmistakably POSITIVE way, that they will help you to recognize and integrate your “evil witch” as a thoroughly GOOD force within you. They transform the “evil witch” into the peaceful warrior.

Step 7: THE SISTERHOOD

Now we celebrate the festival of the sisterhood. We celebrate our beauty, our wildness, our vulnerability, our craziness and give space for healing again. We step into our own, self-determined womanhood with full force.

Extatic dance, good food, guided meditations and much more will be the framework of this festival.

Step 8: INTEGRATION

What needs to be said to feel completion can be shared, what may need attention still finds room to be heard. We will create a group together so that we can stay in touch even after the course. Within the following 6 weeks there is the opportunity to take part in 2 Zoom calls with Larissa and Desiree to support you in integrating your new BEING into your everyday life.
