How far would you go to heal someone you love? In 2007, the Issaacson Family took their five year old autistic son Rowan on a journey across Mongolia, traveling on horseback from traditional healer to traditional healer – which resulted in the 2009 bestselling book and PBS documentary of the same name: The Horse Boy. The film sparked a movement now called Horse Boy Method™, helping autistic kids gain direct communication through horses, nature, wilderness and learning through movement.
Square Peg Foundation, a school in Half Moon Bay offers this type of help to autistic children, those who need to take things more slowly, overcome fear or anxiety, and troubled teens through a method that also creates a safe place for horses and animals who are unwanted and unloved, and on the way to the slaughterhouse.
The movie, The Horse Boy will be screened on Friday, October 4 at 7:30 pm at the Half Moon Bay IOOF Ocean View Lodge at 526 Main Street. The suggested donation for this famed PBS documentary is $10. Funds will benefit Square Peg Foundation. Refreshments will be available.
On hand at the screening will be Square Peg Foundation’s Joell Dunlap. Square Peg Ranch has been delivering programs for kids on the autism spectrum since 2004. As a premier site for Horse Boy Method™, Joell will be able to tell you how you can get involved in this healing work.
Whether you are interested in travel and adventure, wilderness and its healing power, shamanism, autism, horses, or are just plain curious about how, when life hands you lemons, you make margaritas, this film is for you.
This movie is not recommended for children.
