“Your hand has the power to hurt me or to heal me..Look into my eyes to the heart of my soul and choose to heal me.”
Margrit Coates, Healing for Horses.
Welcome to our site!
In 2002, Institute of the Southwest, a 501(c)3 public charity and California educational corporation, branched out into the world of horse rescue. Under the project title, Spirit of Equus Rescue, the organization focused on providing a sanctuary or sacred place for horses in crisis, assisting in the re-homing of horses in the field, creating a herd-based approach to the holistic healing of horses entering the sanctuary, and continuing our emphasis on education by providing workshops, courses and publications for the benefit of the public.
In 2010, Institute of the Southwest spun off an additional project ~ Energy Healing ~ to provide support for the healing of sanctuary horses and any horse in the field.
In 2012, after 2 full years of development and successful application of our techniques with “Spirit”, an abandoned Arabian gelding in our care, we launched the Horse of Light Holistic Healing Program. This program is available to horses in the field.
Janet Meyer is the developer, scanner, and energy practitioner for the Horse of Light Holistic Healing Program.
The Sanctuary is not open to the public. However, individuals are welcome to call for an appointment to meet the horses. The Director occasionally invites guests to an observation of herd and prey animal behavior which is offered as a educational opportunity. You may contact the Sanctuary Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
