Here's What You'll Learn

Learning how to communicate with horses in a way that triggers connection is a crucial step in horse ownership, and this course shows you exactly how this is done. Even if you don’t own a horse, all of the exercises are applicable to developing compassionate relationships with other animals and humans.

In the course, you’ll learn:
  • Why your horse wants to be with some people or animals, and not others 
  • How to communicate so he understands
  • The secret to harmonious relationships with horses and all life
The exercises will teach you:
  • How your thoughts and emotions have an impact on the way you communicate
  • How creatively changing your perspective will draw your horse to you without you needing to apply force of coercion
  • How to become more and more acutely present in your day to day activities, your horse will notice and respond!

This course does not cover horse training techniques. Instead we focus on communicating from a place of empathy and compassion.

However, chances are that at the end of this course, you will spontaneously want to use a different approach while working with your horse and you will explore and discover creative and unexpected ways to do so.

“Participating in Compassionate Communication with Horses was a momentous experience for me. In a generous and supportive style Stormy May presents a series of exercises that brought accountability, structure and balance to my previously self directed and perhaps haphazard, though serious, endeavor to mindfulness and positive relationship development.

With the support of scientific data and years of personal practice, Stormy has distilled an overwhelming array of methods for achieving peace of mind, happiness and a fulfilling life with ourselves and others into a practical and doable set of foundation practices that are suitable for the utmost beginner, as well as anyone who has tried various techniques but never put it all together or stayed with it long enough feel the full benefits.

The class work notably improved my approach to conflict resolution with skills for analyzing perception in myself and in any relationships, whether with humans or non-humans. It significantly simplified my concerns for attention and enriched my abilities to educate others. I had come a long way with years of self-development on my own, but working through this course I saw great progress in only four weeks. I whole heartedly recommend this course to anyone struggling with desire for results.”

“In a world where few take the time to learn the tools of effective communication, Stormy May shows the way in this grounded online course in Compassionate Communication. Using proven exercises to help learners expand their self-awareness, Stormy supports them in their journey to think about and respond to situations in a new more constructive way.

At its core, this course is about developing a more compassionate way of being with oneself, and expanding that into being more compassionate with others. Becoming present with others is impossible until one can become present with oneself, and these lessons are a wonderful introduction for beginners on the way home to themselves as well as a gentle reminder for those already on their way.

As a seeker wishing to see and honor the sacred in life and all living beings, I experienced this course as a practical study in becoming more mindful and present in everyday life. Communicating from a place of presence and compassion is a skill you can learn and practice that will improve all your relationships, whether it be with a horse, a dog, a human, or any other being. Stormy guides you in getting started or improving upon the skills you already have, and joining the Facebook community of graduates is a supportive way to go deeper into the practices so they become a way of being. If you feel a call in your heart to experience more compassion in your life, don’t hesitate to get started. The time for more compassion in the world is now.”

Time required

In order to get the most out of the course, you should give yourself the time and space to be able to devote at least an hour every day for a month to learning and practicing the materials. Much of the time can be spent doing exercises that can be done at the same time as your regular daily tasks.

Participants so far have shared that they could easily fit the exercises in their busy schedule most of the time.

Participants also shared that their relationship with their horse started changing right during the first week, which is powerful encouragement to continue!

The course includes exercises that I use on a daily basis to operate from a place of compassion.​

The power of group learning

Even if participants are taking this course from many locations in the world, we have experienced great team insights and sharing that has helped a lot in the process of learning.

The exploration of new ways of communicating with horses can sometimes lead to profound questions that are life changing.​

The group calls and the private Facebook group provide multiple opportunities to come together as a team to explore compassionate communication. This creates a dynamic that is much stronger than reading a book or watching a video on your own.

However, I keep my groups no larger than 10 participants at a time. I want to be able to answer everyone’s questions on a regular basis, and I choose to support an intimate complicity among participants of the same group. So far, participants have been very supportive of one another and the exchanges between them always rich in exploration and learning.​

“Since participating in Stormy May’s Compassionate Communication course, I have seen an improvement in family and animal relations, as well as my health. My house is more organized, health improved; I feel less stressed. How, did this happen? Not by magic, though magical thinking did help. Looking back, I realize that the magic happened by changing my point of view. It was a pleasant surprise to discover that by simply changing my perspective on a given situation, I could shift, not only my response, but how others respond as well. If you can accept the premises that most of our actions are the result of rote, unconscious, preconceived ideas and thoughts, then this course will work for you. While this is likely not a new revelation to most people, making changes without support is extremely difficult. Impossible for me. By employing the exercises presented in the course, exploring the true meaning behind our perceptions, I have seen a perceptible change in my consciousness. Just by looking.

In addition, this course helped me get through difficult times, since setbacks on both a personal and financial basis occurred within a month after enrolling in the course. Equipped with a new perspective, these setbacks became challenges. Annoyances became gifts. While the course won’t prevent life’s difficulties, it does help you to cope and master whatever comes your way. Another collateral benefit of Stormy’s coursework is happiness. While happiness is always present, the exercises helped me to capture these fractured moments of happiness.

In sum, it is possible to achieve happiness and establish better communication with family, friends, and of course, animals, through employing simple tools and exercises laid out by Stormy May. For those willing to pull back the curtain to your consciousness, and practice mindfulness, then I highly recommend this course. I have found it has increased my communication with animals, family and friends, not to mention improved my health and appreciation for the fleeting joyful moments of life.”​

“I was fortunate enough to be one of the first people to experience Stormy May’s course “Compassionate Communication with Horses”. This course gave me the tools to be compassionate not only with horses, but all living things including humans! Learning how to be in the moment, letting go of things that are not in my best interest, and exploring my perspectives and beliefs are a few examples of where the course took me. Stormy is an amazing teacher that encouraged me with her gentle questions and observations. This course is for anyone looking to change where they are in life, and willing to commit to themselves for a more compassionate way of being.”

“The exercises in the main course were things I had come across in other areas of life, theatre training, philosophical thought, perhaps even meditation and the teachings of Zen, but as the course began, I realized the emphasis was so different from what I was expecting that it’s made my world turn around considerably.

What I experienced was so much more that I’m still trying to make sense of it a couple of weeks after finishing the course. I am now part of an ongoing exploration group where I can stay in touch with Stormy and other graduates of the course. This is a process that now I’ve started I don’t want to stop.

Compassionate Communication became the way you conduct yourself, and as the exercises take root, you find yourself viewing a very different world to the one you were looking at before starting.

If you’re the kind of person that can confuse yourself when your intentions don’t match your actions, or where you get lost in the mire of should and should not, do and not do, this is definitely a course worth looking at.”​

“Life pulls us into a trap, you have to make a living, we’re fed things through the media, you have to have that and you need to do that, it’s overwhelming, it takes your whole life but this course showed me a way out. This course with the perspectives and different perceptions, I am seeing where I am and how I have been stuck in so many ways and I’m catching myself in it, and it is absolutely amazing. When I get into the exercises and apply them, it makes a difference. So many times throughout the day now I catch myself and collect myself and make new choices. I wish all people had the opportunity to take this course. This course was at the right time for me to give me the tools to take that next step.

This really is giving me things to do that are shifting me out of the rut I was in, and I’m noticing it around me too, not just in me. I’m seeing different opportunities I hadn’t seen before. It is the first course that has really sunk in. I am actually seeing the change and the transformation and others are seeing it in me too. And it’s not just me, it’s how I am relating to other living beings and my perception of the world. It works!”
