Intuitive Awareness: Way of the Horse

The Unspoken Energy Between Us

December 9-11, 2022 Brookshire, Texas
There is a dynamic in the energy between us; it can help create connections or, unknowingly, create blocks of dysfunction. This experiential training workshop develops self-awareness through real-time bio-feedback from horses. Here you will learn interpersonal skills for emotional intelligence and discover the keys to genuine connection.

The Whispers Of Your Soul

September, 2023 Scottish Highlands 
Join a small group of women and awaken to a land of inspiration. Everything will be taken care of from the moment you arrive until the moment you depart. It's the perfect time to regroup and realign your life with joy in a land of breathtaking beauty, stone circles, faery glens, chambered cairns, lochs, sacred mountains, and a beautiful circle of women.

What Others Are Saying About These Programs

Shifting From Ordinary Time to Sacred Time

"Most of us seperate ordinary time from sacred time in our lives. We do our spirituality like we might do a job, it can be structured, a routine like a task, rather than an opening to a way of Being throughout our lives.

When I left the retreat I re-entered ordinary time but I was forever altered.

Once we learn how to live from sacred time, we can see how our entire lives are enriched, balanced within, and more joyous than we ever imagined."

Dr. Nancy Kehr, D.C.

Los Angeles, CA, Asheville, NC

There is a deeply spiritual connection to horses that greets us with compassion and clarity.

The sheer joy is almost beyond my ability to express, yet I know it well.

I find myself in awe of those moments in time when who I am is no longer separate, but connected to all that is.

They help us discover the sanctuary of the heart.
