“Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.”
― Brene Brown

Why Mindfulness?  Why Retreat?

“Mindfulness” is defined as actively seeking an awareness of the present moment and acknowledging physical sensations, current feelings and emotions, as opposed to swirling thoughts.  By bringing this real-time awareness into healing models, our facilitators and teams actively teach practices that can help our participants achieve this state outside in nature and with each other.

Humans were designed to recognize and take into consideration what intuition and instincts are communicating and not disregard and actively push those reactions aside and ignore them.  It is in this ability to make decisions based both on our initial instinctual reaction plus our years of education and life wisdom, that goals are accomplished and relationships are grown and cultivated.  Both must occur for ultimate life satisfaction, a sense of purpose and moments of joy.

The work that is done within our retreats is done so in a setting that provides safety and vulnerability and promotes a practice of mindfulness.  These interactions with each other in nature with the horses clearly demonstrate that horses authentically react to human’s intention, energy and focus, as well as communicating when humans are genuine in their response and when they are not.  This is absolutely necessary for true healing to occur.  Our participants experience the joy of warm authentic connection and it is something that is unforgettable.

We offer custom designed multiple or one-day retreats so contact us today to plan!  Our experienced and professional team of facilitators can plan your  group retreat to meet your specific needs and goals.  Our events can include hiking, mindfulness work, meditation, walking the labyrinth, working with horses, drumming, yoga, journaling, art and more!

Horses are not a requirement for each event.  Our beautiful facility makes any gathering memorable and life-changing.
