Workshops & Retreats
Supported by horses
Workshops and retreats with the horses are suspended this year while we're searching for a new location.
Below are the programs we have been offering in the past, and which may be offered again next summer.
release & recharge
Are you ready for a break from your busy schedule?
Do you need to release some heavy emotions?
Could your depleted "batteries" benefit from being recharged?
This is a day to do just that: release and recharge in the healing presence of gentle horses, breathe deeply and learn how to ground yourself when life becomes overwhelming, and discover what you need right now in order to move forward. This day has no set agenda. We will simply flow with the needs of the group and the guidance of the horses.
max. 4 people, $245 per person
2-Day Retreat for Personal Growth and Empowerment
Supported by horses as healers and teachers, these two experiential days of healing and learning in a small group will leave you nourished and inspired to move forward with fresh energy and new tools to live life more fully.
Boundaries are essential to healthy relationships and a healthy life. Boundaries give us agency over our physical space, body, and feelings. Setting and sustaining effective boundaries is a skill. Unfortunately, it’s a skill that many of us have never been taught. We might pick up pointers here and there from experience or others, but for many of us, boundary-setting is a relatively new concept and a challenging one. Supported by the horses, you will learn grounding, energy awareness, and setting healthy boundaries through interactive exercises.
Now that we know how to set healthy boundaries, we need to learn how to assert them appropriately. Assertiveness is about confidence and self-acceptance. It means standing up for our personal rights and expressing thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in direct, honest, and appropriate ways. Assertiveness includes discernment—the ability to decide when a situation is healthy and supports our well-being, and when it is not—and to take appropriate action. Horses are amazing at teaching us all that and more through interactive exercises.
Self-care is an important part of effective boundaries, which involves giving ourselves permission to put ourselves first. It also means recognizing the importance of our feelings and honouring them. Self-care is anything that we do to take care of our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. Though a simple concept in theory, it’s something we often overlook. Supported by the horses, you will learn these important life-skills while at the same time recharging your depleted energy resources and receiving gentle healing from Mother Nature and the horses.
max. 4 people, $430 per person for two days
TRANSFORM YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS
3-Day Retreat for Healing and Transformation
Do you find yourself constantly repeating the same experiences? Have you tried to change a behaviour only to fall back into the same rut? Are you getting frustrated with affirmations and visualizations and positive thinking? It may be time to make a change at the level of your subconscious.
In this three-day belief-change group ritual Ulrike is pulling together her experience in Shamanism and Equine Guided Learning to bring you a belief-change process that works! It is based on the same principals as Psych-K, which is derived from neuroscience research and ancient mind/body wisdom to facilitate change at the subconscious level.
In this process we will draw on the wisdom of the horses to support us through interactive exercises. You will be guided through several shamanic journeys and engage in elemental healing rituals to effect lasting change in your life, working with the four classical elements: Fire for transformation, Water to release, Air for inspiration, and Earth to plant new seeds.
These three days will be intense, and at the same time you will be relaxing in Nature, supported by the gentle healing power of the horses.
max. 3 people, $645 per person for three days
This belief-change ritual can also be booked as a private retreat over two days. Please visit the "Services" page for details.
