Rupert Isaacson’s incredible journey to learn how to heal autism with horses began with a chance encounter as his son, who was diagnosed with autism, suddenly connected with neighbor’s horse. What unfolded from this fateful moment led his family to visit shamanic healers all over the world. Success with his son motivated him to develop treatment programs which now helps other autistic children retrain their brains. This interview with Regina Meredith was originally webcast April 14, 2016.
