Enter the world of energy
Making the invisible visible through the field of horses
Horses reflect who we ARE. In a very complex way, they reflect information that we ourselves have written into our energy field. We are often unaware of much of this information ourselves.
Our focus will be on making the information written in your energy field visible through the horses. Whatever we find is appreciated and respected. Horses reflect hidden deficits as well as hidden potential.
You will learn the basics of horse language. This language is the language of the body, beyond the spoken word. And that is exactly what makes this encounter with them so helpful. Horses can understand you very well. You can communicate with them completely without any tools, completely freely. In this process of mutual rapprochement, it becomes visible what your body speaks or is able to speak, where there are blockages and what you find easy or difficult to express. Much of our attention will be pointed at the topics of closeness and distance, which are directly related to the topics of respect and trust.
Soon you will be able to recognize together with the horses that the communication with them corresponds exactly to what you communicate with your fellow human beings. Because in truth, 83% of our communication with each other takes place via our body, 12% via the sound of the voice and only a mere 5% get the words we speak as the carrier of what we really want to say.
Horses help us to look more honestly and deeply into ourselves through their mirror. They only react to what our bodies speak to them and are not misled by the spoken word.
With this course we would like to give you the opportunity to turn your gaze inwards so that you can become aware of what is really going on within. You can bring light where there is darkness inside you.
When it comes to horses, I keep talking about light and shadow. Horses themselves are such luminous beings, as I have experienced time and again in countless experiences with them, that their light will cast shadows. Illuminating shadows to transform them is the power of this work with them. I have now seen many people go through this transformation. At the other end, new people emerge who have more strength and courage to stand up for themselves, who make their life’s path their heart’s path.
Supporting you aswell as part of my Team are Desiree Dior as a shaman, Tanja Übelbacher as an energetic therapist and Ida Elise as our wise “Eldest”.
We use the energies at the turn of the year to clear out the old, which no longer serves us on our path in life (in ourselves) and to align ourselves with the new that we want to create in our lives. At the turn of the year on December 31st, we will all together, including the horses living here, create a rite of passage.
“The universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.”
Break through your limitations by becoming present with feelings and emotions
Your commitment to your personal truth
You as Part of this Project
So we open the space for everyone who is on the path within, finding out what you really want, who you really are and what you really enjoy.
You can bring your current life theme to find answers to burning questions this week. Larissa and her team are at your disposal as coaches. No prior knowledge of horses is required.

(Founder Horse Inspiration Academy)
As a horse whisperer and mentor for communication and transformation, I help horses and people to experience one another which is carried by love, clarity and responsibility.
The Horse Inspiration Academy, which I founded, has set itself the task of understanding spirituality in the mirror of living horses as a tangible, urban, modern and individual reality and thus integrating it into everyday life. The best spiritual school is (everyday) life itself.
Désirée Dior - Metsa Yaka
Désirée Dior – Metsa Yaka was born in Germany in 1985. From a very young age, she was drawn to the mysticisms of the universe and began searching for truth.
She found her first, everlasting “home” and first answers sho found at the horses. Since early childhood she felt fascinated and attracted by their energy. In the presence of the horses she was in the here and now and could simply BE.
She found her other “home” and deep connection in working with Ayahuasca and other master plants.
On her path as a medicine woman, she went through an intense out-of-body initiation process and embarked on a profound healing journey out of depression and anxiety.
In 2017 her first own horse Levante came into her life and she began to work and learn with her friend, transformation teacher and horse whisperer Larissa Simon.
The energies of the plants flow into her work, elements from body and integration work. With her strong intuition she holds a transformative space of presence, clarity & love for humans and animals.
She lives in Andalusia with her 3 great teachers horses, a lovely hind, her 2 dogs and 12 cats.
Even as a child, I was fascinated by the grace and strength of horses. When I was near them, I felt a sense of freedom that stopped all my worries, expectations and fears for the future for a moment. Because I was in the here and now – present with the horse.
I spent a lot of time with the horses and had the chance to work with different characters. When I was 17 I met my Warmblood mare Principessa and then Larissa. Through this merger I was able to experience an even finer, more authentic communication with the horses.
Furthermore, I became aware of my own emotional body and began to deal with energies, emotions, femininity and embodiment. I learned from people, animals, books and from many of my own processes.
I worked as a kindergarten teacher for a few years until I realized that my life was taking me in a different direction. In 2016 I completed the training in craniosacral energy balancing and acupuncture meridian massage. I work with people and animals, connect with their energy field and get the system flowing.
I met Ida, our “wise eldest”, 2 years ago on one of my courses. I call her the “wise eldest”. Ida is one of those women who, through her own school of life, managed to naturally become a teacher for others. She complements our team with her life-affirming, young-at-heart and clear manner. It’s always good to have such a woman by your side. 😉
Unfortunately, these days, such women are rarely encountered and if you meet one, you should grab them right away and get them into your team. These women anchor and ground us youngsters on our way into our own depths.
