http://www.zenmindzenhorse.com This exercise, called "Focus on the Hip" is designed to help the student become aware of just how much chi can be summoned up at will in his or her gaze. As predators, humans tend to focus a tremendous amount of energy in their eyes. Here, we first teach our student, Shanna, to breathe and drain all the energy out of her body. You'll see she gets very quiet and relaxed. We then ask her to set back and quickly summon up a lot of chi. We help her to focus all that chi by asking her to use the end of the lead rope and point it at the horse hip. You'll see the horse willl move his hip away from the energy that Shanna is focusing on him. Next, we ask Shanna to do away with the lead rope and just use the energy in her eyes to move the hips over and you will see how the horse responds just to her focused energy (without pointing the end of the lead rope) on his hips. It's a beautiful demonstration of how we can learn to dissipate energy or summon it up at will to focus where we wish to exert our intention.
