The 9 week series with Kerri has been amazing - I've found a greater sense of peace and confidence in myself. The tools I have learnt on the course are invaluable in everyday life and make it much more playful. The best thing is that it is really simple too - so I recommend the 9 week series to everyone!

"I'm a bit past the halfway mark of the book (Listen Like A Horse), and it's fabulous!
It seems to hit "below the mind" as I feel it in my heart when reading/listening. The patient, unhurried tone matches that of your play with Cooper, and seems to occupy my mind in a way that keeps it engaged without trying to interfere with the more visceral experience. It feels satisfied, as if it's out to pasture, and not trying to force things.
I certainly can identify with Cooper, feeling the effects of a lifetime of "handling." But I also identify with the handlers, being on both sides of this tug-of-war we mis-label as life. Your writing brings out the longing for connection which has become less muted through the inner tumult of the past few years."

I attended Kerri’s workshop on Generation of Harmony. It was such a rich and joyful experience. It has helped me on my journey of bringing Heart, Soul and Spirit to everything I do. Her presence made me feel very much alive, and I knew she completely understood me without having even heard anything about my story. This made for a very safe environment. And playing with the tools Kerri presented to us, gave me the opportunity to look at some issues in my life from a different angle, giving me valuable insights and ways to take action towards the true me. I also loved reading her book called Listen Like a Horse (recommended reading for this workshop) – it has certainly enhanced my awareness. Thank you, Kerri, for your Love, support and generosity!

I want to express my experience of the class at Seaside by Keri. I feel fortunate to have attended the class with Kerri. She is a fantastic teacher and I learned a great deal that I can apply to all aspects of my life. I have been on the spiritual path for awhile and have listened to many great speakers but what she had to offer was truly unique and life changing. I really enjoyed her book as well. At the end of the last class all of those present sincerely shared with Kerri about how amazing and impactful the class was for them. I would recommend this class to anyone.

“I also resonate with gaining a greater sense of who I am and letting go of the other stuff, like, “OH! This is who I am!” And I also find that I like myself better, that I’m being gentler with myself and accepting, which allows me to jump in when my ego takes me for a ride. I recognize that it’s an ego trip of some kind, that there’s something driving me that’s other-than myself. I can see now that I just don’t want to take that ride and I just let it go.
My daughter is applying to a Waldorf school, and she was going to do a shadow day to have the experience of being there. I was freaking out, being the “helicopter dad” who wouldn’t leave things alone, controlling everything down to what my wife is going to wear! My wife asked me, “Dennis, what’s wrong?” And I was able to stop and think, “Yeah, what IS wrong? Why am I acting like this?” And I just stopped dead. I just stopped. And I realized that I was feeling insufficient, that I wasn’t going to measure up to the expectations of this school, even though they were the ones inviting my daughter to attend! I was feeling really insecure, and then I realized, no…no, I don’t need to do that. This is fine. They’re welcoming my daughter, asking us to apply…it’s okay. I can be myself. And then it all just dropped. I was fine after that and relaxed. I apologized to my family.
It was a gift to have that presence of mind to ask myself, “Why AM I doing this?” That was cool.”

“The first thing I noticed was that the relationship with the mind and the body changed. My whole bodily experience has changed - the way I move, the way it feels. The other thing is that I noticed a change in the way my mind observes my body. There are different tones of how I’m watching, like “what’s wrong” or “Is something hurting” is what I’m used to. It’s fear based. Now that’s been replaced with a more friendly kind of watching. The mind is now more friends with the body.
I played a lot with Breaking Energy. Nearly the last year I had to do a lot with heavy feelings. I started to break energy with them. I played with questioning and questions for clarity to find out how much of it is mine…and I got the idea that it’s not mine at all! It was really great! It wasn’t easy to let it all go, but I started to wonder who I will be when it’s all gone!
At first it was breaking energy with certain persons, but then I realized I can do this with not just people but also with thought patterns too. That was very interesting - I can even break energy with German history! So I played with that, and I feel much lighter this week.”

"I am so enjoying and finding great value in your Tools. I’ve heard your Tools before at the conference where you spoke a year ago, but there is so much more depth to be had and experienced if you’re willing to just go back and keep listening. I listened to both sessions 1 and 2 again this week and then gave myself the gift of actually DOING the processes! I got great benefit from that and have noticed myself applying the Tools. I’m also noticing retroactively when I could have applied the Tools, which is of course the beginning of noticing that I have learned another Tool or two. That’s been really great.
The other day I had a big charge in a situation with my husband, and instead of doing what I usually do, go out and hide in the barn, I just sat in the other room from him and used on of the Tools…it was so great. He was right there in the house with me and he didn’t know what I was doing, but I sure did! Everything shifted so fast. It was very sweet.
I definitely feel like we’re building on a foundation here. I’m really glad this is nine weeks. At first I thought 9 weeks was a really long time, which I like, but was wondering how we were going tokeep diving deep. I have a bette sense of that now."

"Hello Kerri, just want to thank you again for the wonderful session with you. It was really an amazing experience." - A.N., Encinitas, CA
I met Kerri when I began to sponsor a horse who was really pushy and always testing my authority. Kerri is a horse whisperer i her own right She coached me into becoming the leader. My experience with Kerri has been more of a gift than I ever would have imagined.
She has taught me how to work with my horse in his language to accomplish the ground work we both needed. In my riding lessons she knows just how to describe a pressure or position with words that create clear images which are easy for me to follow.
Kerri has not only helped me become successful in my groundwork and riding, she has also helped me personally. She helped me release some of the grief and trauma I’d been holding related to the loss of another beloved horse. She taught me a technique called tapping to help me improve my riding by relaxing my hips, and I this is something I can now use for many other issues as well.
Kerri is a soft, gentle, kind leader. You would give yourself a great gift to work with her for personal and animal concerns and communication. I hope you will be lucky enough to choose to be mentored by Kerri.

I've been working with Kerri Lake who has been teaching me how to integrate heart-mind-body-universe in a highly relevant and effective fashion. My colleagues are reporting that I have greater presence and confidence after a handful of sessions. She's a "facilitator of facilitators and consultant to teachers and creators with an ultimate purpose of generating harmony throughout humanity.

I know from repeated, personal experience with my dog and cat that Kerri is an authentic interspecies communicator. When I leave my animals with Kerri, I know they are heard, respected, loved and very well cared for. Kerri is also calm, grounded and responsible with regards to the care and maintenance of another person's property. I suspect she is, and will be, in very high demand in her community. This is a wonderful way for people to get to know her very special skills and abilities.
- NK, Oceanside, CA
Kerri’s intuitive abilities are incredible and the horses she works with are a testament to her abilities. she also establishes a wonderful rapport with the horse owners as well and involves them in every step along the training process. Her enthusiasm and love of her work shows in the pride and confidence she instills in her clients, both the two legged and the four legged variety.

I grew up a “horse crazy” girl as many are, and coming back to horses after several years away has been a real gift, as well as a challenge. I needed someone to understand my strengths and weaknesses as a (now much older) rider, but I also wanted to be a better horsewoman and gain some real education and insight about riding and about connecting with horses.
Kerri Lake has been an invaluable mentor in all of these areas. Right away, she seemed to intuitively sense where my weaknesses lay, not only in my actual riding but also in my thought processes and attitude. She also immediately understood that with two small children at home, this time with her is very important to me, and she genuinely treats it s such. From our very first lesson, she has been able to gently but firmly guide me to an understanding of the kind of rider I want to become.
Kerri has a great way of encouraging me to visualize where I want to be as a rider and then be able to feel myself, whether or not I am progressing along that path, Rather than shouting out arcane commands from the center of the ring, she will ask something like, “How does that feel to you?”, listen to my assessment and then giver her own feedback, making sure that I understand what she is explaining and the reason for it. This has been an extremely helpful tool in learning to self-correct.
Kerri’s teaching methods are based in becoming a balanced, intuitive, relaxed and effective rider through self awareness and moreover, a symbiotic relationship with the horse, which I feel can be applied to any riding discipline that I might choose to undertake on down the line.
In the time that I have been working with Kerri I know that my riding has improved substantially. I am more confident and secure, and my horse has definitely responded in a positive way to the differences, on the ground as well as in the arena. I hope to continue working with her as long as she is is willing to teach. I feel like things can only get better... I have so much more to learn!
It is immediately evident when you meet Kerri that her sensitivity and enthusiasm carry over necessarily into the way she communicates with animals and relates to people. She approaches both with honesty and integrity. I feel extremely fortunate to have met her, gather knowledge from her, and call her a friend.

Just a quick note to thank you for braving the cold winds and sharing your message with everyone. You are a true kindred spirit for all living creatures with an incredible welcoming aura of friendship!

I’ve been doing very little with Maggie, just grooming and loving her up, been on a couple of walks. Well, to make a long story short, I don’t know if you went out to our pasture, but there’s a ridge line where they feed and then there is a valley where I find Maggie a lot. She makes me work to get her.
Today I walked out there and saw her down in the valley, called her name and she lifted her head, acknowledged me, and put her head down to eat again. I kept walking towards her but I was still a good distance away. I called to her again and she lifted her head and was looking at me. I slapped my thigh a couple of times and said, “Come on, Maggs!” She just stood there looking at me, I took a couple more steps toward her again and did the same thing...
Next thing I knew, she was cantering up the hill right towards me and stopped right in front of me with her nose on my chest. It brought tears to my eyes. She’s never done that before and I just want to thank you for validating my feelings and helping me to trust myself and my horse.
What a great feeling it was to see her running towards me like that. Sorry this is so long winded, but I wanted you to know the progress we have already made, and I wanted to give credit where credit was due.

I signed up for one of Kerri's clinics not quite knowing what to expect. What I recieved was amazing and life changing! Kerri has a very gentle, caring and soft way of working with you and your horses. I spent the most wonderful afternoon learning so much about myself, my fellow riders and of course our horses. I felt like we'd all had in-depth therapy! I'm truly looking at life from a different perspective. If you have the chance to spend an afternoon with Kerri TAKE IT!!!
- J.C., Nicasio, CA
I feel fortunate to have met Kerri and I have in the last 12 months got to know and respect her in two different ways – I first met Kerri in early 2015 when she came to Australia to present a 7 day program at my facility. When she returned in October to present again it was not surprising we would became great friends and I have since undertaken an intensive distance coaching agreement of two Skype hook-ups per week!
One of the standout qualities Kerri embodies is great clarity, which arises from being without judgment. I feel safe as a student myself and hence feel confident in recommending her as a facilitator of the highest and purest intent. She has a number of profound tools to call upon for facilitation and expansion in her clients.
My passion is my own journey of expansion while at the same time raising awareness and merging natural horsemanship with Heart and Spirit. I have consulted with Kerri in the capacity of mentor for the new domain and online project I have registered, as she understands this subject from all perspectives – the horse, the human and the Divine.
All I can say is you are in for a treat at your upcoming workshop!
- J.R., NSW, Australia
I found Kerri on the internet, when my beautiful horse George had decided to start charging at me! Of course he was merely trying to say something and it is this that Kerri helped me with. After many one on ones over Skype for various things, we organized her trip to the UK, where she has now run a few workshops and held one-on-one's.
What can you expect at these events - I guess the best thing to do is not to have any expectations as Kerri’s uniqueness shines through in her workshops and when she sees you one on one. Kerri guides the course or the individual as conversations arise and allows these conversations to exist.
There is never any judgment and though you have access to lots of answers and ideas after meeting with her, she never says "you should do this." Instead, she helps you to believe in yourself and to reconnect with your physical body by having total awareness of how your body is feeling. If you are trying to work through something she guides you through it, always bringing you back to how the body is responding, which allows one to feel safe and grounded when uncomfortable moments arise. If you are trying to find answers to problems or situations, she will guide you through any blockages, allowing you to discover what is right for YOU not those around you, but you. In short, Kerri, gives you the opportunity to reconnect to your truth, to your heart; to feel and to believe.
Kerri is truly special. I hope you have fun and enjoy working with her.

By working with Kerri Lake, we have realized giant improvements in collaborative communications, ability to execute, and overall clarity of purpose. Her insights and coaching have been extremely valuable through our early growth, and we look forward to creating an ever-greater experience for our clients by incorporating Kerri's gift for facilitation.
