Healing with Horses Experiences

Experience the healing power of horses in this unique and inspiring retreat.

3 day/ 2 night retreats

2024 has brought in some wonderful evolutions here at Heart of the Horse.  Many clients have mentioned over the years they just wished they could stay and not return to the 'real' world yet.  Well now, they do not have to!  

This inspiring & healing retreat offers a transformative experience that can support you with what you currently need in your life.  For some it is a health reset, others like the support and motivation to bring about changes in their lives.  Some people have needed time to themselves to re-centre from a relationship breakdown.  Many women in particular are choosing a conscious getaway, to gift themselves permission to make time for themselves. One common theme is the horses are a main drawcard, as so few people have the luxury of daily contact with these incredible sentient beings. You will immerse yourself in the transformative power of horse wisdom, where the gentle presence of horses may guide you toward emotional clarity and self-awareness.

During your retreat you will receive a relaxing 1 hour massage or healing session, enjoy yoga and meditations to help ground you into your body. You may love to sit under starry skies, lay on the earth or maybe journal to connect with your inner truth. Perhaps you like to paint or draw, if so pack your goodies to play with.  

This is an opportunity to experience yourself again. Through rejuvenating practices and nourishing food, you will leave with a deeper connection to your inner sense of self.

This experience will last well beyond your time here, as so many of the experiences you have will be in your toolbox to resource yourself when you are back in your home environment.  Check out some of the beautiful testimonials on the Testimonials page if you think this offering could be for you.

The current dates are set to the end of June 2024 and will commence in August 2024.

Equine Assisted Learning Session 

1.5 hours $190 / 2 hours $230

This session is designed to support you through whatever you are navigating or working through in your life.  The horses are free to move about as a herd.  There is ample opportunity to spend time with them.  When you work with horses you can't help but be your authentic self. You become embodied, congruent and totally present.

 

I'll facilitate the structure of the session and tailor it to suit you and why you've come.  This could be anything from anxiety, depression, grief to just spending some time with these remarkable creatures and getting back to feeling like you again.  The horses have shared in their chanelling that they can access all dimensions and bring back what the person in front of them needs.  I love that sentence so much, and I see it play out time and time again.

 

During a session the horses may be haltered for you to work with one on one,  groomed or enjoy a shared experience such as a walk or a quiet healing interval.  There are many of those! We just work with what unfolds during the session. Staying open to what the horses guide us towards.

Equine Assisted Learning & Healing Session

2 hours $230

This session incorporates many of the same principles highlighted above, however, after the time spent with the horses, you'll move onto a massage table in the paddock area (weather dependent to the warmer months, in the cooler months we retreat to the heated caravan for the body work component).

There is something very magical lying on table under the trees, horses grazing around you and allowing you to deeply connect with nature all around.  I work on your body using reflexology on the feet and energy balancing techniques that are useful in supporting the physical body coming back into balance.  As we are doing this, the horses may come and interact with us or stay further away. They are not tethered or enticed with food, it is totally up to them what they do.  We take notice of their body language and can gauge when they are assisting us, as their cues are quite obvious to spot.  They lick and chew, yawn, and go into a trance-like state when deep energetic work is occurring. It is very special. Of course, we are in dialogue with your comfort and safety levels throughout the whole experience

Being with such magnificent animals with the most impeccable ability for stillness is incredible.  When the herd are in that zone together, some powerful potent energy healing work is occurring. I call this the energetic gold of our work. Typically, as we drop down more into stillness they do so as well.

They often help you release at a deeper level. What I know from this work is, they assist you in releasing what you no longer want to carry. They open hearts and bring clarity to what you want in your life.  This is a potent healing experience that will leave you connected with yourself, your dreams and possibilities but equally grounded in the here and now.  Miracles are a common occurences that keep me in awe of this thing we call life and the rich interconnectedness that can occur between all beings.
