In the Middle of Hope and Fear show art In the Middle of Hope and Fear

The Equestrian Tai Chi Podcast

According to Taoist cosmology, Wu Ji is the undifferentiated source of everything. Although Wu Ji is the source of everything, it has no desire to create and for this a creative energy is needed, and this creative energy is Tai Ji. Tai Ji can give birth to, or generate any set of complimentary opposites, both physical and abstract. This episode is about looking at the opposites of Hope and Fear in relation to something you want to do. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful in some way.

In Taoism and other tradition too, the wood element is one of the five elements, wood fire earth metal and water. At different times of the year, each of the elements is predominant and that is a good time to work with the energy of that element, though all the element are always there in all seasons.

For Nervous Riders - I am versus I feel show art For Nervous Riders - I am versus I feel

The Equestrian Tai Chi Podcast

This episode is for riders who feel nervous sometimes and it’s to invite them to consider changing saying or thinking the words ‘I am a nervous rider’ to ‘sometimes I feel nervous when I ride’! Taoists believe that we can create identities or egos for ourselves without even realising! When we unwittingly create identities for ourselves, we can live from them and be controlled by them, without us really knowing and this can close down our lives in ways we might not have imagined.

Along with weaning, loading is another thing that can have a big effect on the foal's life, though not to such an extent as weaning.

This Episode is about how I taught my foals to load and about their first journeys. Wu Wei means Non Action or it can mean Effortless Action!
