Reiki & The Way of the Horse
Certification Training
Level 1 or 2

Fulfills Pre-requisite for Facilitator Training Mentorship

Welcome and thank you for your interest in this very special program.

I want to invite you to spend four of the most magical days with me in this amazing and very special Way of the Horse Healers Retreat.

We will be in the Blue Ridge Mountains at Epona Ridge where the profound and innate feminine energy of human, animal and land create a timeless space as we step into the healers path.

Expanding the heart’s intuition is a wonderful gift. Through the practice of Reiki many have found a greater sense of inner balance and peace that naturally comes with personal alignment. Here you will practice the skills to quiet the mind and tune into a deeper wisdom.            ~ Barbara Alexander ~

The skills of women as healers have long circled this land. For centuries we have held the power of loving energy that innately beams through our hands and hearts supporting the healing process as a skill we were born to embody.

This retreat is essentially 2 retreats in 1. We have combined Reiki training and certification along with inner balance and personal growth through The Way of the Horse. It is possibly one of the most fulfilling experiences in the expansion of the human spirit. Here you will learn skills and tools to support the healing process for ourselves and with others including animals and nature, a practice that honors the greatest potential for well-being.

Because this retreat includes the heart-aligned energy of humans, animals and nature co-creating together in healing therapy, this experience becomes one of the most blissful and powerfully enriching retreats all year.

All experiential sessions with horses are done safely from the ground – no previous horse experience needed. 

“Thank you so much for the generosity you showed us all in opening your home and your heart in our Reiki retreat. I came weary and feeling I had somehow in my busy life lost a piece of myself that I reclaimed at Epona Ridge. I left connected more strongly to my heart and filled with gratitude beyond words. I am excited and energized to take the many blessings I received there out into the world. Thank you for the Magic! I know there will be more of Epona Ridge for me as life unfolds.”

Lunch and Snacks
Each retreat day, a fresh and delicious lunch will be prepared for you to enjoy with the group. Snacks and tea will be provided as well.

Time for meditation in nature
The grounds of Epona Ridge were designed to provide many areas for meditation and reflection to deepen your inner connection and support rejuvination from healing energy of the Blue Ridge mountains

This expanded process of Reiki Certification and training is an opening to an ancient awareness in the sacred art of healing. We are all healers and teachers and this retreat will provide you with the skills to activate the natural healing processes of the body and restore physical and emotional well-being for ourselves and those we love.

  • Learn how to connect to animal and nature energy systems.
  • Learn the skills of offering healing energy to everything around you.
  • Gain an expanded intuitive awareness of non-verbal communication through the guidance of your personal core energy.
  • Learn from the personal biofeedback of horses.
  • This four day session is filled with so many wonderful things, yet at its core is the deep inner journey to well-being – as you walk the path of the healer.

I hope you will join us for this very special retreat!
