Conversations with Lynn Carnes: Creative Spirits Unleashed Part 1
In this episode, Bruce and Julianne have a conversation with Lynn Carnes of Creative Spirits Unleashed. Lynn first came to Bruce to work horses, but also to see if this work would be helpful for her clients. Lynn accelerates change and unleashes leadership performance in organizations, especially in the context of challenges without easy answers. She has over thirty years experience in leading people, managing change projects, developing leaders and client management. With a background in banking and finance, she quickly grasps the essence of a business and what drives its success. Lynn approaches change management, leadership development and coaching with a practical focus that connects effective concepts and principles to real work. The rest of the story is that in the late 90's she was completely immersed in the corporate world, climbing the well-worn "ladder to success," yet inside, she was miserable. Somewhere under that misery was the simple but daunting question: What if it could be different? Through a series of seemingly random and meaningless events, a journey to wholeness began. She now serves as a coach, facilitator, speaker and writer. She is also an artist, and once again, a rider.
This episode is the first in a series of three that captures a conversation with Lynn immediately after an exciting lesson with Bruce. After months of work to overcome a negative riding experience, this lesson was a breakthrough. Bruce and Lynn discuss the lesson, as well as the work that they do with clients in their Leading Through Pressure Intensives with her clients.

Conversations with Mimi Rehor on The Abaco Island Project
Bruce and Julianne have a follow-up conversation to speak with Milanne Rehor about the Wild Horses of Abaco Project. In this second call, Bruce and Mimi discuss the early days of the herd and how Mimi found them when she first arrived on Abaco.
Bruce spent time over a period of two years working with Nunki, the last mare of the Abaco breed. Since she was in fact still wild, he was called in to help Mimi work with her on the stressful aspects of collecting eggs for future breeding and insemination. From handling during vet exams to stress-free loading into the breeding chute, the less stress she felt during the process, the greater the chance of success. Unfortunately, Nunki died in 2015 before the insemination took place. On a positive note, however, the organization was able to collect her eggs for future cloning projects.
While remaining in Abaco to update and fortify the Preserve to house an equine therapy program, Mimi was still in the Bahamas when the storm hit during the fall of 2019. The first podcast episode about the Abacos released in January delved into the storm and Mimi's experiences following the devastation. She has since completed enough renovations on a newly donated vessel to be able to take to the water again and make a move to Marathon, Florida.
