Friskeröd Academy: International courses in empathic interbeing 

The horses are planning two international on site courses in 2024. 

The preliminary dates are: May 5-14 and September 8-17 in Tanumshede, Sweden (about 2 hours drive from Gothenborg). 


If you are interested in participating, please send a personal letter to where you describe a little bit about yourself and why you are interested in this work. The admission process is done through the horses and other animals. As soon as we know anything more, we will let you know. 


Contents of the course, so far:

Day 1. Arriving and settling in from mid-day and on. Spending time just being together with other species. In the evening we gather for a shared meal and storytelling. 

Day 2. Different exercises in finding and opening up the self for empathic communication. A walk in nature will be included. 

Day 3. We learn more about the concept of non-hierarchal interbeing from different species. The teachings of the Jordanian, Hashemite horses are included in all the work. 

Day 4. In order to receive something, we practice giving. This day is free of studies in order to digest what we have experienced so far. The day is spent helping out at the farm, and the duties are guided by what the animals wants us to do for them and the place. 

Day 5. Rosen inspired therapy, meeting the essence of the other one. We learn more about how we can help animals suffering from trauma. 

Day 6. The basis of riding horses, according to the principle of Mio. 

Day 7. A day by the ocean, meeting different species. We visit the nature reserve Tjurepannan where we focus on water and dissolving the concept of linear time. 

Day 8. This day we meet and work with plants. We also help out at the farm with whatever is needed.  

Day 9. Today we learn more about micro movements and communicating through an enhanced body awareness. 

Day 10. Contemplation, practicing gratefulness together with the animals, plants and forest. We finish around lunch time. 


Details around food and accommodation needs to be sorted out. Therefore we still cannot present a cost. As soon as we know more, the information will be updated.

Day 1, 23/2. The relationship with water. In Sweden some water is frozen now, and it is still too early to awaken the memory of the life to come in springtime. it gives us time to practice finding the contact with water inside and outside of ourselves. 

Day 2, 22/3. The awakening of springtime. The water moving and the memory of the individual is brought back to life. For those who are not in the northern hemisphere, awakening is still happening throughout the growing seasons. 

Day 3, 3/5. Growth and development of the uniqueness of the individual. Grazing as part of that growing process. How can we enhance the growth and development of each other? 

Day 4, 7/6. Microbes and mycelia. The practice of empathic communication with entities that are less separated. Aiming to find the instinctive knowledge of interbeing. 

Day 5, 5/7. Coming into full bloom. Reaching the peak of growth on many levels. And how that may affect the grazing planning for the rest of the season. 

Day 6, 6/9. The development of seeds. What happens to consciousness when the individual plant splits into seeds, or when the roots grow to give space for more than one plant body? How does this season affect the grazing and the relationship between plants and grazing animals. 

Day 7, 11/10. The transformation of vital energy moving from the upper parts to the roots. The grazing habits as well as the movement changes now. How to maintain and store vital energy for the coming winter. 

Day 8, 29/11. The final part of the grazing season (in the northern hemisphere). Our role as humans in a wider perspective. How can we be part of an empathic interbeing? Closing the circle and gently move the water within and without. 

If a student begins online, later on, the best might be to begin in late winter - whenever that occurs in that part of the world.
