Dancing Between the False and the Authentic Self

Five days of the intensive one on one work with Sheri Gaynor was beyond my expectations. It was an experience that words cannot describe. Together we moved through the process of creativity with art, movement as herd held the space for transformation to unfold in the field. My life has been altered to the new heights forever. I embodied my authentic self, looked at false self as I let go of the behavioral patterns that kept me stuck in the rut in the past.
We all danced for five days, in real and dream time, through the fields of both humanity and horses. Sheri walked by me and witnessed the process as she allowed me to dance and move through my repressed emotions. She fully felt and reflected the wisdom of the horses as I traveled from false self into embodying the authentic self.

The last day of integration was the culmination and the most powerful part of the training. I danced towards the herd and was asked to fully connect within my hearts’ deepest desire and ask “Who will be my dance partner?” This thought rushed in “What if they do not allow me to dance. What if I get rejected?” All the horses formed the circle and closed in. When I voiced the self-doubt, horses lined up and showed my dance partner. I still did not notice, Sherri pointed out what just happened.

I walked with my dance partner into the round pen for our dance. After arrival, I asked Marley to start moving and he did not. I felt sadness and asked Mary to help me release it as I was not going through my mind to figure it out what was it about. The thought came in, “Will this be our last dance?” I looked at his face he had a tear rolling down his eye. We both knew that we were complete and it was time to say goodbye to my false self. Marley walked towards the gate, unhooked the chain, opened the gate and let Takota in who had been silently holding space outside the round pen. I tuned into my body, loosened up and was ready for a dance with my new self. I allowed Takota to walk forward, with commitment and self-confidence.

Sheri coached me so that I could pass the threshold of the round pen into the arena where I felt deeper bonding, intimacy, and gratitude towards Takota on a heartfelt level.

That afternoon in the studio with Sheri, I decided to get messy and have fun with art materials. My takeaway from the immersion process was that I could still keep parts of my old creative self and dance with the new that is still emerging as I embrace each step with joy, fun, acceptance and play.

As I am writing this just a few days after the training, I am allowing in more joy, beauty, and nurturing. I have stepped into life fully, as I allow my new self to emerge with trust and faith. I catch myself as I hear Sheri’s voice “What is happening?” I release the breath, check in and go back to grazing, -creating with GUSTO. The partnership with my husband and others are transformed.

Thank you Sheri
