Dear Friends,

Socrates said: “An unexamined life is not worth living.”  Every day is an opportunity to reflect upon recent experiences.  How have you been living? Are you making the most of opportunities coming your way? Is it time to focus your attention and actions to make improvements? Have you overcome obstacles and can now take a moment to really enjoy those successes? Reflection is so important!  Of course, it is wonderful to reflect while in nature.

As we strive to come to know and understand ourselves, we can increase the meaning, power and value in our lives. I often deepen and clarify my understanding of life, during deep talks with dear friends and loved ones or while writing. I find value in looking back (and within) with a keen, compassionate eye. Are you being kind to yourself?  It is easier to hold a high standard of kindness for others when we practice ‘at home’, with ourselves. Do you laugh easily?  Can you go with the flow?

I would love to support your progress with healing and other goals through energy healing support & empowering conversation.  (Check out the testimonials below!)

Improving the quality of life through love, kindness, forgiveness and compassion


As we go through each day, accomplishing tasks, flowing through routines, facing challenges and choosing how to spend precious time and energy, we have the option to make an important investment in ourselves and our highest good.  Time spent listening, being still and receptive. Time to let go of TO DO lists, others, technological wonder gadgets. Time to connect with the higher self, blue sky mind, intuition, inner healer, great teacher, the cosmos or divine; whatever you call the enormously powerful energy that enlivens and nourishes us in every moment of our lives – even when we fail to pay attention to it.

When we spend a few minutes (or hours) each day in stillness and silence – especially while in nature, we gain a stronger awareness of the aliveness that we are, the optimal direction to aim for, the value of (and joy in) simple presence, and a myriad of gifts, including improved intuition, spontaneous arising of solutions to problems, and a deepening of peace and equanimity.  Even ten minutes of stillness, silence, and awareness of self, aliveness and surroundings can change the course of your day, week, or year!

If you haven’t yet given it a try, please do…and let me know what you notice.  If you’re already doing this regularly, please let me know how you benefit from your practices.  Send an email or write a post on the Wonder Horse ‘Positively Healing’ Facebook page.  We want to hear from you!

Woman Spirit Network:  On the last weekend of April, the Woman Spirit Network Retreat was wonderful!  This retreat is coordinated and operated entirely by volunteers (including Wonder Horse!).  As a non-profit endeavor, it is exceptionally affordable. Bonfires & stories on frozen lake shore.  Everyone received a special card.  Wonder Horse’s said ‘Surrender to Effortlessness’.  Love that!  So why do we so often resist surrendering to WHAT IS and what is meant to be easy, flowing, natural and wonderful – or challenging and character/strength building for our own good? It was a very healing weekend for women from varying backgrounds spanning three generations.  Drumming.  Good food is served up next to great company and much laughter.  A magical mixture!    Hope to see you there in October!
* WSN sells out each spring & fall.  Women’s retreat: advance deposits strongly recommended.

Crescent Cove Children’s Respite & Hospice Home hosted their first family (after MN licensing was finalized!) on May 18th.  Congratulations, Katie Liindenfelser!!   Go go go (and please do support) Crescent Cove!

Crow Wing Crest Healer’s Retreat was fantastic!  Woodpeckers, eagles, hummingbirds, chipmunks and qigong – lots of qigong!  A class & many healing support sessions by Wonder Horse!   Some of the feedback received over the course of the weekend:

“I feel all full, all connected and all here for the first time in a while.”  J.M.
“This is the best service I’ve had all weekend.  Thank you SO much!”  M.B.
“My back feels fantastic!”   J.S.
“Rhonda masterfully guides you through energy work in the discovery of fresh insights regarding sources of discomfort, bringing solutions to the surface.  Rhonda exudes enthusiasm for qigong practice and for your improvement, while leaving you feeling comforted and nurtured. I appreciate that Rhonda genuinely cares, as indicated by her follow up with notes to sustain the healing process.”    M. L.
