LIFE WHEEL – UNLOCKING OF THE BLUEPRINTS OF EMOTIONAL FREEDOM
The 'Life Wheel' is a holistic energy healing system which is rooted within a shamanic medicine wheel.
This experiential journey is deeply guided by Nature and the Spirit of the horse. Your horse partner serves as your guide and represents your relationship to your own emotional freedom and healing. You are the creator of your reality and by understanding the truth of where your perceptions originate, you have the power to create desired outcomes. This Wisdom is aligned to your authentic self.
THE LIFE WHEEL
The Life Wheel has been mapped to specific life patterns, emotions, belief systems, age of imprinting, current area of impact and the priority healing for further integration and support. Every symptom, every stress, has an emotional root. Once the true story is understood, energetic blockages can be released with supportive healing that increases life energy flow.
In partnership, you walk beside the horse, the Spirit guide within the crystal Life Wheel. In this process the horse will reflect and reveal blocks and imprints locked within your own body and energetic field, and these are the clues to specific healing pathways.
Horses gift us with the opportunity to return to a primal, non-verbal state of awareness and allow us to see ourselves in the moment. For a horse, there is only the present moment, seeking balance and harmony, they act as 'divine mirrors', reflecting back to us the energy of our emotions. Without any agenda and without expectations, they respond to what lies in our hearts, not in our heads.
THE MEDICINE WHEEL
The medicine wheel is an ancient tool for conscious living that opens a healing space beyond that of conditioning. It is an experiential system that connects humankind to all of life and to Universal Knowledge that is the key to freedom.
The medicine wheel is a catalyst for change and functions as an integral process that brings together fragments into a unified and balanced whole. So the medicine wheel brings together those aspects of ourselves and our lives that we have been conditioned to believe are separate, bringing us into harmonious relationship with all other Beings and the very Powers of the Universe.

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
Olivia Badach is the owner of The Human Spiral which focuses on the journey of Being human. Her belief is that to invite awareness of embodied stories we can open the door to healing, integration and transformation. She holds a deeply compassionate space that nurtures self-expression and heart-based connection. Her effectiveness as a facilitator and healer comes from her own life experiences and years of spiritual exploration and application.
Olivia's keen interest in people began with her studies in Industrial Psychology and Sociology at UNISA. She later acquired a diploma in craniosacral therapy (2003) and is a practising therapist registered with the Craniosacral Therapy Association of South Africa (CSTSA). With her keen interest in birth, she certified and practised as a doula for a period of time and later completed her Womb Awakening 9 Moons Apprenticeship with The Fountain of Life (Womb College).
Olivia has completed her Master I, II and III coach training through Creative Consciousness© and was an accredited Insights Discovery© licensed practitioner for over 5 years. The Insights model is a global depth psychology tool that supports a deeper understanding of human behaviour.
In 2013 her journey with horses began. It was the beginning of a life-changing rite of passage to remembering and reconnection, a surrendering and opening of the heart, and a deep trust in the innate intelligence and Wisdom of Nature and the Spirit of the Horse.
Nicola Michl is one of the founding members of the Equinox Trust, which facilitates empowerment programmes for communities and individuals in need in the field of Animal Assisted Therapy. She is also the owner of Earthwalk Pty (Ltd), the home of the therapy horses.
Nicola’s deep connection with horses began in early childhood and she has worked with them extensively over the past 25 years which have allowed her to experience the healing quality these animals hold.
Her interest in a holistic approach to healing began at university with her interest in Psychology and Philosophy, as well as Quantum Physics. She studied to become a certified natural healer and counsellor and is a registered Ethnic Health Care Practitioner with the Natural Healers Association (NHA). She has a BA Honours degree in Fine Art from UCT and has also completed the Part 2 certification of the EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) model and is currently completing the advanced certification.
After 10 years of working as an equine assisted therapist, she has witnessed and believes in the power of Nature and all within to restore and heal the human Spirit.
The Life Wheel is a Gift from The Spirit that has been birthed through the partnership between Olivia and Nicola.
Beyond the veils of language and the noise of activity, the most profound events of our lives take place in those fleeting moments where something else shines through, something that can never be fixed in language, something given as quietly as the gift of your next breath. — John O’Donohue
