The Water Protectors at Standing Rock captured world attention through their peaceful resistance.

The film is a collaboration between Indigenous filmmakers, Director Myron Dewey, Executive Producer Doug Good Feather and environmental Oscar Nominated filmmakers Josh Fox and James Spione. It is a labor of love to support the peaceful movement of the water protectors. Details on how to watch will be sent to those registered when the film opens on 10/21/20.

In these hands-on workshops you’ll learn how to recognize and use the visual responses of the horse to your touch to find and release accumulated stress in key junctions of the body that most affect performance. Jim Masterson has successfully taught these techniques to hundreds of owners, therapists and trainers worldwide, enabling them to open new levels of communication and relationship with their horses. The prerequisite for this course is to purchase and view the DVD, Beyond Horse Massage and/or the Beyond Horse Massage Book prior to attending. These will be good reference tools going forward.
