Recently, our sangha was invited to bless the “home” of the wild mustangs of Windhorse Relations. We had never been asked to bless a house before, and so this was a beautiful beginning, and a time when Tahri Marpo Ling and Windhorse Relations forged a new relationship. A herd of wild mustangs lives on the outskirts of Kayenta. The program of helping people learn from these majestic beings was founded by Mary Lee Brighton, and co-founded by Marcia Thayne. Please go to their website: windhorserelations.org to “meet” each of the mustangs via vibrant photos, to learn more about Mary Lee and Marcia, and especially to see the warming and healing of the heart that occurs “When Horse Meets Heart.”
The horses and neighboring cows really became enlivened as the chanting and playing of bells and drums progressed, blessing and purifying the land, the animal-beings and all who care for them. Many volunteers care for the horses and cows, and help during programs that bring humans and horses together through a heart-connection.
This was a very sweet, memorable time. Mary Lee, Marcia and all of their volunteers have created a truly sacred practice of basic goodness through their work with horse and human beings. The horses and cows became very active and animated with the chanting and playing of bells and drums! A closeness developed between the people of Windhorse Relations and Tahri Marpo Ling. Blessings covered everyone.
