The Ride of Our Life: Lessons in Faith, Love, and Wisdom from a Magical Horse (Large Print / Paperback)
The Ride of Our Life: Lessons in Faith, Love, and Wisdom from a Magical Horse is the first book in a multi-volume series that tells the story of the profound relationship Lisa Brisse shared with her horse, Little Miss. Twin spirits and soul companions for 35 years, Lisa and Little Miss's deepening bond carried them from challenging battles of will in their early years through a series of life-changing experiences that reveal Miss's true identity as a wise avatar in animal form - a Zen master whose spiritual mission is to teach Lisa and everyone else she meets about love in all its soul-shaping complexity. At a time when it is crucial for us to heal our relationships with ourselves, each other, the planet and all its living beings, The Ride of Our Life offers a remarkable story of love and connection that can help show us the way.
If you've ever bonded with an animal and felt an unspoken communication, The Ride of Our Life: Lessons in Faith, Love, and Wisdom from a Magical Horse will speak to your heart. And if you recall leaving home for the first time and setting out to find your place in the world, this book will take you back to your younger self and the complex emotions of that moment. As it weaves together a heartfelt coming of age narrative with extended reflections on the many spiritual lessons Lisa learned from Little Miss as they grew together from adolescence to maturity, The Ride of Our Life reminds us of the tremendous potential for healing and enlightenment that lies at the heart of our relationships with animal companions. Drawing on a lifetime of deep spiritual study and on her long experience as a wellness coach and meditation teacher to help communicate Little Miss's profound wisdom, Lisa invites us to reflect on how we respond to life's inevitable challenges and gently urges us to leave behind the limiting stories that keep us from opening to all that the universe has to offer.
