have come a long way my friend, through uncertainty, confusion,
misinterpretation; carried by the wings of love to a far greater understanding
than we could ever have believed.
Imagine a world where all minds are joined in the quest for greater
understanding. You and I can change the world, one mind at a time.

One with the Herd is the official newsletter of Liz Mitten
Ryan and a group of very special horses, the "Edition Warm bloods" who
live on Gateway 2 Ranch in the Nicola Valley of British Columbia, Canada.
This particular herd (presently numbering thirteen) has the luxury of
living as a wild herd on 320 acres of grassland, forest, meadows and
lakes. They each have their immediate family members, and together are
descended from the original four mares, all half sisters from the same
sire. Unlike a wild herd however, when the Edition Warm bloods return
to their barn, they are afforded the benefit of a loving supportive
interface with humans. Above all they are respected as important spiritual
beings of immense value with much to contribute to the evolution of
Over the last year these horses and their owner Liz Mitten Ryan have
co-written two inspirational books; manuscripts of essential information
for those who love horses and gifts of the earth in general.
One with the Herd,
the first book, tells their story and explains the setting of their
unusual circumstance, and book two, The
Truth According to Horses is a communication of their deepest
understanding of life. (Both books are filled with stunning photographs
the newsletter: "Here we (the horses and Liz) aspire to bring
awareness to this quest, to inspire and instruct readers with their
own horses via e-mail and questions, to keep you up to date with the
latest goings on, and share the horses revelations and ideals."
We are now experiencing the birth of
some very exciting times. The consciousness level of all life on earth
is increasing. It is truly time for us to share this world in understanding,
as equals. In the very near future we will look back at this time in
disbelief at how we could have considered ourselves to have "dominion"
over our fellow beings; whether human or animal we are all unique parts
of the larger spiritual entity that the horses call the ALL.
Horses seem to be at the forefront of
this movement towards communion and kinship. They are now forerunners
in the field of therapy: physical, mental and emotional; they even have
their own 24hr television channel. Horses are being recognized as teachers
and healers; the power of their spirit reflected in the largeness of
FROM THE HORSES: (Limited Edition,
(L.E.) speaking for the herd)
for the animals, we are here as fellow beings on this planet to bring
perspective to our mutual journey. How differently do you view the world
in our company and on our backs? Just being in our presence brings you
joy, peace, love and freedom. We accept you unconditionally. It is time
to let go of your limited thinking, to believe in the possibility of
one mind, one life. We are all that one being; that one becoming. Together
we are evolving to become the possibility of our most cherished dreams.
Fear is the
only barrier. Let go of your fear and remember the garden; we are waiting
for you to join us. We will help you - just speak with us as you do
each other; send us the picture in your mind and trust in your intuition
when we answer you. Spend time with us without agenda, like you would
a friend. Entertain the quiet that is found in nature; release the need
to control each situation and you will find the treasure that lies buried
beneath your ambition. We are all one with God and God is all there
is; relax and enjoy the experience."
my husband, invented a wonderful word the other day, which embodies
this quote from One with the Herd. "I am living a dream that continues
to expand beyond the boundaries of my physical self, to the greater
soul of all life, where what I dream for myself is a gift for all to
enjoy, and what I give to all life, I give to myself. Life is discovering
itself through us".
The word is "EQUINISITY" -
the gift of finding the unexpected and truly important perspective through
the clear and almost 360 degree vision of the equine.
