WORKING WITH HORSES TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE
From team building for the workplace to life transition soul work, horses offer opportunities to re-assess yourself and your approach to personal and professional excellence and fulfillment. Connecting and communicating with horses through the body allows you to access intuition, clarity and choice, as you are tapping into potential beyond just the thinking mind.
The feeling of a 1,000 pound animal focusing all her attention on you, listening, waiting, respecting, responding to and trusting in you, is like an injection of renewed courage, motivation and dedication for whatever it is in your life that you want to do, change, or become.
All levels and styles of horsemanship welcome, but no horse experience necessary. This work is about tuning in to the horses first, recognizing what you can control within your own body and it primarily takes place on the ground. Sessions for individuals and groups are conducted in a confidential, retreat-style manner. This work complements yoga, meditation, and other mindfulness and physical well-being practices.

A word on the power of a group. Amplifying.
When a group of human beings comes together with horses to learn and grow and change their world in some way, the resulting awakening and empowerment is amplified by the presence and support of other people.
Look for open group programs posted on this site throughout the year, and contact me if you have an existing group and would like to book a date. Beginning in May 2019, I will be dedicating Sundays from 12 – 4pm to group sessions. Special rates will apply for existing clients or clients in a longer term coaching program.
