Episode #66. This week on the podcast, I am thrilled to be joined by Leigh Wright. Leigh is a Certified Equus Coach from the Koelle Institute of Equus Coaching. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas and has over 35 years of experience practicing as a Registered Nurse specializing in Neonatal ICU. In addition, she has continued her education to include Trauma Informed Equine-assisted learning from The Natural Lifemanship Institute having completed the Fundamental and Intensive course sequences.
Leigh utilizes equine-assisted learning with a mindful approach to guide her clients to their inner knowing and promote self-awareness of life’s recurring patterns. Her coaching is rooted in offering a meaningful experience centered on building a relationship with the horse as a partner, then allowing and supporting the thoughts or emotions that arise in the space of that relationship and exchange. Holding the belief that all relationships are sacred and it is in the support of relationships that we can explore our true essence. Leigh is also a trained astrologer and regularly integrates this education with her equine coaching.
I met Leigh at the Miraval Wellness and Spa Resort in Austin, Texas in February of this year. My best friend Marisol and I wanted to take some time to focus on wellness and to spend some time connecting.
In today’s episode, she talks about her journey to her work today and how we can heal through our relationship with others including horses.
