The Nature of Wisdom (NOW) Programme

  • Are you ready to fall in love with life and embrace your life’s purpose?
  • Do you want to move beyond limiting behaviours and live life from a larger perspective of who you are?
  • Do you want to have more authentic relationships at home and at work?
  • Would you like to explore this through connection with horses?

Then the NOW Programme is a beautiful gift to yourself.

The NOW Programme is an advanced personal development programme created by Carol Roush (founder of the Medicine Horse Way) and facilitated in the UK by Rosie Withey (an Eponaquest Advanced Instructor and Medicine Horse Way Master Instructor).

Participating in a NOW Programme is an opportunity to step away from daily life and develop a deeper connection to your authentic self. You will learn to connect with your own inner wisdom and learn to understand and develop the language of your emotions. Horses help you to shift subconscious beliefs and behaviours and you will take home new tools and expanded self-awareness to help you make lasting changes in your life, career, relationships and community.

This two-part advanced intensive programme is an in-depth exploration of the Way of the Horse as a profound journey of self-discovery and transformation. It consists of two weeks of experiential learning with time in between to integrate your process and learning and brings together theoretical teachings of the mind, experiential learning of emotional intelligence, shamanic journeying and mindfulness with interactive experiences with horses.

In the safe and congruent environment of NOW, with horses as your inspiration and guides, you will learn skills that help you to increase self-awareness, learn to hear your own inner guidance, access inner peace and develop an approach to life that enables you to live deeply and awaken to your life’s purpose.

If you are ready to get out of your story and into a joyful life, NOW is for you.

Nature of Wisdom

Portrait of Carol Roush, creator of the medicine horse wayThe NOW Programme was created by Carol Roush (founder of the Medicine Horse Way) to help you turn on your light.

In the NOW Programme horses show a way to increase self-awareness to transform your life, family, relationships, work and community. You learn how to communicate authentically, set healthy boundaries whilst respecting others, and see a greater perspective of what is possible in your life.

“There is nothing more important to you than the light of your own inner guidance. The societies of original tribal people were deeply rooted in the wisdom of mother nature. They sourced their lives, their spirituality, and developed human wisdom in partnership with nature. Children learned to listen to the wind, appreciate the healing gifts of plants and trees, and they were encouraged to study the medicine of all animals they encountered so that they could walk in balance on the Earth Mother.

NOW Programmes are intended to begin a process for many people who have never understood their connection to our Earth Mother. It is our intention to open a new doorway of understanding for those who seek the Oneness of all life, connection to the Great Mystery and to awaken to the awareness of their authentic selves.”
