*We have discovered that people have attachment to the word “horse.” When we use the term Equine, we untether the mind, freeing us to connect and learn from these brilliant beings.
**Confidentiality is a keystone of the gathering: Choosing to show up is an agreement that what is shared by others in the group will not be shared beyond the group or discussed with others. Our souls are shy and vulnerable; we respect he/r courage to show up and express he/rSelf.
***Journeying is an ancient tradition that provides connection to and wisdom from ancestors, angels, animal or other spirit guides via a guided meditation.
*****Individual Equine-Guided Coaching Sessions: In our sacred space, the human participant voices a question or concern s/he is having such as relationship or work challenges, feeling stuck or wondering which direction to move in. Facilitator(s) use a combination of mind-body meditation, active questioning, and repeating spoken words in a way that allows participants to access he/r wisdom. Horses naturally “tune in” to energy; in doing so, they reflect back what they perceive. As 1200 pound animals, their presence is strong and memorable; interactions with them provide honest information about what is happening in our lives, and how to make desired changes.
******Energy Healing Sessions in the presence of horses allows release of what no longer serves you and fills yourSelf with Peace, Light and Love.
*******As Witnesses, we participate while seated at the edge of the arena, and gain wisdom via our loving attention on what happens around and within us. We will process our personal responses in a small group following each individual session.
