Barbara Alexander | Experiential Retreats for Joy and Inner Balance

Inner Joy Is Contagious!


Life Lets You Know When It’s Time To Recalibrate… 

Hi, I'm Barbara Alexander and for starters, we can begin right now!

Together, through this audio training, we'll discover a default that sends you in the wrong direction.

It's like getting a private coaching session with me. (And it's free!)


Intuitive Awareness: Way of the Horse

Brookshire, Texas

December 9-11, 2022  Energy and Interpersonal Dynamics

Provence, France

Intuitive Awareness: Way of the Horse

Asheville, North Carolina

September 12-17, 2022  Soulful Wisdom
Nurture your spirit on a 6-day experiential retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains! Barbara and the horses facilitate this personal journey to inner balance and heart aligned rejuvenation. It’s the perfect combination of nature, relaxation, and connection with a wonderful group of women. No prior equine experience necessary.

Scottish Highlands

September, 2023
Join a small group of women and awaken to a land of inspiration and the whispers of your soul. Everything will be taken care of from the moment you arrive until the moment you depart. It's time to regroup and realign with joy in a land of breathtaking beauty, stone circles, faery glens, chambered cairns, an abbey, lochs, glens, mountains, islands, beaches, and ocean.

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.
