This Storytelling Evening features Sylvain Gillier, a holistic practitioner and homeopathy MD, who will share legends, lore and history of the Navajo Native American People, in particular, how the Navajo interact with horses. He will recount the traditional Navajo ceremonies and techniques used in gentling horses and how the Navajo incorporate horse-work into teachings, bringing knowledge to their fellow Native Americans to improve their lives and interactions with the world at large.
About Sylvain……residing near Paris in the natural preserved area of Vallée de Chevreuse with his herd of horses, he organizes workshops on relationships between humans, animals and nature. His passion for horses started when he discovered through intuitive communication that many horses have a message to transmit to humans. He was trained in horse therapy by author and teacher Linda Kohanov, author of The Tao of Equus attending horse workshops and traditional Native American ceremonies on the Navajo reservation in Arizona and New Mexico. These experiences led him to discover the parallelism with his practice. Sylvain’s curiosity resulted in numerous visits, twice a year since 2012, and cultural exchanges with the Navajo People. Developing many friendships along the way including with the renowned Medicine Man Jones Benally, an Arizona Living Treasure, who visited France to share teachings and methods. In the Fall of 2017 Sylvain is organizing a group journey to Arizona to meet the Navajo and Hopi in their own territory and will include visits to the Grand Canyon, the Painted Desert, Shiprock, and sacred places in the Canyon de Chelly.
The menu will feature a Navajo and Southwestern cuisine including Chili, Corn & Bean Salad, Nachos, Navajo Tacos, Peach crisp and other items. Vegetarian options with advance request. As usual, it will be a complete dinner with choice of red or white wine, beer, cremant, tea and coffee. This Storytelling Evening will be chez moi. Codes sent when you RSVP.
