A Woman’s Life Equine Workshops and Retreats

There’s something about stepping into the barn…
You hear soft sounds from the horses as they munch on hay in their stalls.
There is something about this that feels connected.  This is the environment of A Woman’s Life Equine Assisted Workshops.

This is about YOU….

A Woman’s Life Equine Assisted Workshops and Retreats are opportunities to do something different just for you.

These events are designed for women who are looking for a new way to learn.  There are lots of different options.  If you are looking for fun and the opportunity to rediscover your playful, thoughtful, and creative self or  maybe you want something that is focused on building skills to improve your relationships, discover your strengths, or move through seasons of life with grace and more self awareness, there is something for you.  All have the beautiful benefit of feeling supported and heard by the facilitators, the group, and most importantly, the horse.

All workshops and retreats are designed with you in mind. Making you feel safe, supported, and empowered are the goals.  Each workshop is facilitated by a team composed of myself, a certified equine professional, and the herd.  No riding or horse knowledge or experience is needed.  Just your presence and willingness to show up for the experience.

Being with the horses is an unique opportunity to practice being in the moment, to lean into the presence of these intelligent creatures, and to feel reassurance that you are ‘enough’ when the horses trust you to enter their space.

The herd can allow you to experience the sense trust, connection, and practice healthy relationship. As your understanding of how it feels to be accepted just as you are, you begin to notice how these key elements show up in other relationships.

Horses help you take off the mask of your usual “I’m fine” by reacting to your non-verbal communication. The subtle shifts in your posture and your breathing noticed by the horse can indicate that there is something in the environment that may not be congruent– their reactions and feedback can allow you to self-check when what you say does not match what you feel.

As self-awareness grows, horses also give you an opportunity to practice new behaviors. Practicing in this non-judgmental environment cultivates a sense of empowerment, mindfulness, and confidence. This authentic feedback and the sense of connectedness are why working with horses has become part of my story.
