Watch this short video clip and read more about our work with Thea below. If you feel moved to do so, we'd love to read about your experiences and reflections in the comments.
Thea Fast has spent 60 years with nature; 55 years with horses, 40 years with youth and self development, 30 years since university, and 20 years with Equine Facilitated Wellness (humanbeherd.com). Her newest endeavors are "Moved By Nature," somatic stretch toward dialoguing in relationship with body through sensation — as a stand-alone practice, or to take into other relational practices with animals. She centers Sharing Power with Nature and Loving Ourselves, Together.
I'd like to introduce you to Thea Fast, a dear colleague who does some of the most wonderful work in relational connectivity, power dynamics, and somatic practice I have been privileged to encounter.
As we've been getting to know one another in the Intuitive community network and as part of our group projects with Intuitive Prowess, Thea's anchoring of intuitive sensing modalities has become a powerful part of our day-to-day dialogue and practice — and really, we've only just gotten started.
The field is wide and deep. Our continuing explorations hold great promise for interconnection, stabilization, and the recoveries of our physical bodies and of our communities.
Prior to this short broadcast via Intuitive Public TV, Thea and I and group members of Intuitive Prowess have been engaging with the nutritive possibilities inherent in our practice of power flow and our recognition of what "healthy dominance" can be in a world filled too-full with unhealthy dominance (and unhealthy submission) patterns.
In this video, we're discussing our experiences with communication, assertiveness, power dynamics, and the importance of balance and harmony in relationships.
Thea also discusses the importance of meeting others where they are and not forcing things upon them — at the same time as engaging a practice of being more active in our relationships, communicating our needs and asking for what we want, so that we are not simply victims of our interactions.
Honorably engaged power dynamics can balance ecosystems, cycling the currency of mutually-respectful relationship.
How do we assert ourselves, stand up for our needs,
and at the same time care for one another in
growing, strengthening, living relationships?
How do we step in and lead for our own
well-being — and the well-being of all?
As we continue these dialogues together, you are invited to join us, follow along, and be part of the conversation as we bring in all our answers to these questions.
