CHOOSE TO LIVE CONSIOUSLY AND FROM THE HEART:
This is a flexi-silent retreat. During the introduction and over lunch and dinner, people who would like to share and chat are welcome to do so. Those who would like to remain in silence are also welcome to do so.
We start each day with a relaxed form of meditation which is just to quiet the mind and get everyone into a good space to enjoy the day. In between the scheduled activities, each person is free to choose where ever they would like to explore on the property. We encourage you to “follow your feet”, which means just go with your mat and your notebook to wherever you are drawn- whether it is a specific place, tree, herd or particular horse- and just be in nature with the horses. You can walk with another participant or you can explore on your own. If you feel worried about going into the paddocks on your own then you are welcome to ask me to accompany you. Your experiences and insights are personal and they are just for you- there will not be any obligatory sharing, set group discussions or story telling about each person’s experience. We will finish the first day off with a fun group dinner at Tin roof for those of you who would like to join!
I will be coordinating the practical aspects of the retreat, as well as offering support where it is needed, but your own intuition guided by nature and the horses will inspire and facilitate the experiences without any outside interference or interpretation. I would like to share with you the ways in which I have found my own rhythm with horse wisdom and invite you to explore yours! The focus of the retreat is to spend time with the horses and nature, remembering how to be still and listen, reconnecting with our own inner wisdom and to connect with horse wisdom that balances your Lion and lamb inside.
