Sharing Territory

I’m on day four of the Carolyn Resnick’s “21-day chair meditation challenge. Instructions include “sharing territory” with one’s horse by sitting in a chair in a space with the horse from fifteen minutes to one hour with no agenda, no expectations and no intention for the horse. The instructions offered a choice in the amount of time spent each day. Fifteen minutes a day would deepen my connection with my horse, thirty minutes a day would create “profound self-realization” or one hour a day would be “life changing”. I’m always up for “life changing” experiences. So I have opened up my schedule to spend one hour a day with my horse. “Easy, peasy”, I thought.
