The Most Sacred Place Dwells Within

“The most sacred place dwells within our heart, where dreams are born and secrets sleep. A mystical refuge of darkness and light, fear and conquest, adventure and discovery, challenge and transformation. 

Our heart speaks for our soul every moment while we are alive. Listen. . . as the whispering drumbeat repeats. . .

Be – gin. Be – gin. Be – gin. It’s really that simple. . . just begin. . . again.”

–Royce Addington


I look forward to the time I spend with these magical Nokota® horses. They are unlike any other horses I have ever been around. They are feral, raw and live by their own set of rules. They are untouched by the human hand that “breaks” a horse into submission. These horses carry the blood of their ancestors within them . . . horses that roamed vast landscapes for hundreds of years and lived among Sitting Bull and the Lakota Sioux Nation. Simply, they are magical.

I have found that if you allow yourself to leave your rushed life, your schedules and your daily chaos at the gate, these horses will give you a connection to Mother Earth that you are desperately in need of and don’t even realize you’ve lost. We would all be a bit more settled in this world, if we took the necessary time to put down our phones and our chaos and just walk barefoot in a grassy meadow. Listen to the songs of the birds in the trees. Watch the beauty of the hawk as he circles above and calls to you. Sit and feel the earth below you. Close your eyes and breathe. Silence your mind and listen to your soul speak.

Re-Wild yourself.

Hear the natural beat of Mother Earth around you. . . Just breathe. . .

I believe it is in our DNA to be connected to nature, animals and each other. When I look through the lens of my camera, I want to highlight this connection and preserve it so you can share your story with future generations.
