Laura Anne Parker has made a lifelong commitment to her love of and guidance from horses. Her spiritual practice has been nourished by Master teachers of Eastern Spirituality and Indigenous Elders creating her path of intentional integrity. Formed out of a need for a sanctuary-like environment for training horses and caring for them, Laura envisioned and manifested the land she calls Inner Circle Farm. Laura's intention has always been to create space for like-minded people wanting to learn and grow together in this community and here her dreams are being realized.
Truly committed to learning, Laura never stops seeking guidance from her Elders or highly trained Equine professionals. She has made great use of her Master’s degree from NYU in Education and Motor Learning, years studying body awareness with the Alexander Technique, and all of her world travel to bring life force to her path as a teacher and guide.

All of these aspects cause our multi-diverse selves (and the body) to feel safe enough to open internal doors for deep healing.
Guided entirely by spirit, Lia performed her first healing when she was 9. After this, she began incorporating the natural energies found in plants, earth, and stones into healing environments for all beings. Ten years later her search for understanding the workings of subtle energies found her living in the far east studying with different healers in Japan, Thailand, Nepal, and the Philippines. Since then she has mastered many healing modalities from around the world including Shamanic and Usui Reiki, Incan Shamanism, Tezkatlipoka (an ancient Healing tradition from Mexico), yoga, and dance, as well as the power of the creative process as used in Creative Arts Therapy and Sand
