Dewachen Ilg and Lumbré…these two have had a special, spiritual relationship for 2 years, “Daddy, Lumbré KNOWS when i am having a hard day and he helps me feel better.”   Horse Beings have an exceptional capacity to transform the emotions of Human Beings…if you let Them.   Dewa met Lumbré at Durango’s Medicine Horse Ranch at which tremendous yoga takes place everyday in many ways!    pic by Joy Kilpatrick


oh, it’s easy and for many, these Kali Yuga days; insanely profitable, to get a fancy PowerPoint Presentation together, quickly cobbled together by copying unTransmitted spiritual Teachings from the Masters, and turn a nifty profit on everything from Chakra Cleansing to Self-Empowerment…

personally and professionally ilg don’t trust no Path that ain’t seeped in Tradition and Sweat with proven Tools to parlay those two Most Noble Spiritual Ingredients toward Self Transformation…

that is why i am still such a rank beginner at Wholistic Fitness® and why, even after 35+ years of channeling our lofty Path so high above the rest…becaUSE of her constant tweaking – if not wrenching of my negative tendencies and emotions!  WF is all-Ways in my face; challenging my addictions toward comfort (stagnation of spirit) while challenging my wholistic limits in body, mind, and spirit.   As Sogyal Rinpoche teaches:

“The more often you listen to your discriminating awareness, the more easily you will be able to change your negative moods yourself, see through them, and even laugh at them for the absurd dramas and ridiculous illusions that they are.

Gradually you will find yourself able to free yourself more and more quickly from the dark emotions that have ruled your life, and this ability to do so is the greatest miracle of all.

The Tibetan mystic, Tertön Sogyal, said that he was not really impressed by someone who could turn the floor into the ceiling or fire into water. A real miracle, he said, was if someone could liberate just one negative emotion.”
