Wisdom of the West

Legendary Leadership for Troubled Times


Do you long for a simpler time?

Do you pretend to be happy?

Do you feel disconnected?

Does life seem incredibly complicated?

Our modern world has led many to feel isolated and alone, unappreciated and invisible, searching for a moral compass. The past may hold the key to a more joyous and rewarding future. 

 Living in the country and having daily interactions with the horses have made me intimately aware of my confidence and personal boundaries. Horses are a thousand pounds of muscle, and as prey animals, are constantly on the search for security. When we become aware of their reactions, and stand quietly and patiently in our own power, we can calm them and lead them. These lessons are directly applicable to our personal and professional lives.

 Integrity, hospitality and respect for the people, animals and land shaped the Code of the West – standards of behaviour for the farming and ranching families that settled the North American frontier.

Talk less and say more.

Remember that some things aren't for sale.

Know where to draw the line.

Jocelyn Hastie’s search for personal fulfillment led to embracing the rural lifestyle in her early 30s. She still has the passion of the newly converted, knowing that the country way of life (especially the horses she raised, trained, and showed), gave her peace of mind she never felt before.

These things helped her survive late-stage cancer treatment in 2014. Her passion is to explore these lessons with others who are searching for purpose in their lives.
