Reading for Cheryl Ann

Cheryl Ann's Question:  What do I need to do to ride again?

Card Pulled:  Rasa Dance  (Authenticity in Action, Cocreation, The Music of Connection)

From Linda Kohanov's Way of the Horse:

"THE GIFT:  Here's where you put all the pieces together, where new concepts and conventional methods fuse and expand, creating unexpected possibilities.  Authenticity in action draws on responsiveness, assertiveness, discernment, physical collection, mental and emotional agility, fluidity of consciousness, imagination, nonverbal communication, subtle-body awareness, intuition, consensual leadership, and the paradox between boundaries and oneness."

"THE CHALLENGE:  When two beings move in synchrony,  a greater consciousness arises, and with it a feeling of ecstasy.  Can you stay present and focused during these moments of intense joy?  Can you accept the gift of expanded awareness without becoming addicted to it?  If the next moment offers frustration, indecision, conflict, performance anxiety, or miscommunication, can you dance with that, too?"

"THE JOURNEY:  ...people (who attended a weekend workshop) weren't just motivated to sample the benefits of "not doing", they suddenly found themselves stuck there, incapable of asking their mounts to do anything.  Getting the dance started is not about dominance, it's about energy, motivation, and focus.  It's also about timing."

Basically, the rest of the text just says to get out there and learn the dance.
