Awaken - Empower - Connect

This 3-day transformational retreat is specially created for women seeking to define and express who they are authentically in this world. Working with horses and nature as a mirror, you will be invited to explore connecting to inner self through reflective (observation) and active (hands-on) practice. Individual and group experiences will be processed with the intent of deepening integration and learning. By the end of our time together, you will expand your understanding of the healing and supportive qualities of nature, rekindling your relationship to self and others. 

Wild Women Retreat - Through The Eyes Of The Horse includes activities in the following areas       

  • Exploring the restorative power of horses and nature
  • Connecting to nature, the herd, and community
  • Personal empowerment
  • Intuition and energetic work
  • The Way of Council: a practice of open, heartfelt communication

You will be invited to participate in
  • Equine facilitated learning
  • Inter-species communication
  • Nature-based sensory and awareness practices
  • Women's sharing circles
While there will be lots of time spent outdoors, physical activity will not exceed the capabilities of most people. All work with horses will be done from the ground and no previous experience is necessary.


The fee for the retreat is $415 (+ food and accommodation).  

$100 deposit will secure your registration. Space is limited to 10 participants. Please register early to avoid disappointment.

Accommodation and meals are arranged at an additional fee. See details below to choose a suitable option for you.
