Join me in my mission to save our Mother Earth

I am passionate about re-connecting people to land and nature so each can heal the other. By spending time in the natural world, we can re-find our original self and learn to live healthy, balanced lives in the mind/body/spirit way. Join me in exploring how you too can be in right relation with yourself, others and the amazing earth we walk upon.

Are you ready to contribute your best self?

Our programs focus on the importance of learning from Mother Nature how to be respectful to self/others and earth, and how to live a life of integrity, balance and freedom.

Choose from online learning topics like totem animals, plant medicine, nature as healer, or take a more indepth course like our Equine Guided Coaching programs or spirit retreats. 

And for those who want to learn more about living a healthy, balanced life, join us for farm events and farm to table, pleasures with like minded inspired people.

Meet a True Visionary, Ariana Strozzi Mazzucchi 

Ariana Strozzi Mazzucchi is a Master Somatic Coach, zoologist, rancher, lifetime equestrian, raptor expert, artist and spokeswoman for her A-Gaia-Culture Movement. She has been developing healers, coaches and business leaders since 1989. She has coached thousands of people from all walks of life who go on to achieve their own transformational goals and make deep contributions to healing our great Mother Earth.

She founded Leadership & Horses™ and Equine Guided Education & Coaching in 1989. She pioneered the field of horses as healers/teachers and has been training other professionals since 1997. She held eight international EGE conferences, bringing the leaders of EGE, EFP, and EAP together to further develop this amazing approach to human growth and learning. Her SkyHorse EGE™ practioners can be found around the world.

In the 1990's she co-founded Strozzi Institute also known as the Center for Leadership And Mastery and the Strozzi Somatics Coach program. There she trained leaders, coaches and healers in the art of mind/body/spirit balance. She weaves biology, business process, nature as teacher, emotional intelligence and somatics into a truly unique and profound, life changing platform. She is adjunct faculty at Institute for Women’s Leadership and Generative Leadership and has been a guest teacher/lecturer at several Coach Training Programs, IONS, Meridian University and more.

Ariana excels at thinking outside the box, challenging outdated paradigms, and creating the strategies to achieve results. She looks forward to sharing her visionary skills and coaching excellence to help you make your vision a reality. Ariana’s passions include sustainable land stewardship, healthy lifestyle practices, healing for the earth.

She currently trains healers, land stewards, shamans, animal advocates, equine coaches and from all around the world.
She is the author of three books, “Horse Sense for the Leader Within,” "Equine Guided Education: Horses Healing Humans Healing Earth," and “Planning Your Business in the Horse as Healer Teacher Professions,” and a DVD,” Intuitive Horsemanship™” and has been published in the anthologies, “Being Human At Work” and “Horse Crazy,” as well as Somatics Magazine, NorthBay Business Journal, Press Democrat, Edible, Wall Street Journal, San Jose Mercury News, San Francisco Chronicle, Ride Magazine, Western Times, Strides and Raptor Release.

She began pioneering this work in the 70’s training horse and rider in a variety of disciplines (winning champion awards in dressage, jumping, eventing, gymkhana, reining, and working cowhorse) when she realized horses were listening to subtle forms of energy, intention and imagery. She expanded her studies of animal behavior at UC Davis where she graduated with a degree in Zoology in 1984.

Ariana spent several years working with birds of prey and other wildlife at the UC Davis Veterinary School and other rehab centers, going on to manage several animal and equine facilities. The birds and wildlife taught her many of the same lessons that the horses had and she began to feel a need to bring the magic of animal communication into the world of people. She began studying human dynamics–aikido, leadership and somatics-and became a Master Somatic Coach in 1996. The seemingly separate worlds of horsemanship and self-mastery began to blend together and ultimately shifted her orientation from traditional horsemanship (in which we control the horse’s behavior through a system of cues and orders), to seeing the horse as a sentient being who can actually guide us into a deeper connection with ourselves and our whole lives.
