book ✓ The Extraordinary Journey of Healing that Changed a Child's Life Å Rupert Isaacson

Ith a crazy idea why not take Rowan to Mongolia the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersected? THE HORSE BOY is the dramatic and heartwarming story of that impossible adventure In Mongolia the family found undreamed of landscapes I just finished the book Marvelous read A remarkable story of a family's journey and a remarkable healing It was a joy to read I've heard it said that we're never tested beyond our ability to deal with the tests we're given I don't think I would have been able to deal with the sorts of challenges that the Isaacson's had to deal with I loved the author's summary at the end Very valuable for me to frame this mysterious disorder In the esoteric lore it 'reads' that advanced souls will be born into a trying time on earth to help the earthmankind into the next level Perhaps these gifted and interesting souls are among the helpers There were so many things I loved about the bookespecially the author's description of the beautiful countryside that they passed through For that reason I started streaming the Netflix movie last night but only got 13 through saving it for later when it wasn't so late The book though is always better I'll look forward to watching the rest of the movie I highly recommend this book

Anyway overall I learned some but eventually I got pretty bored and annoyed with the objectification and repetition The ending was nice
