The Healer Divine - Spiritual Horsemanship
April 22, 2017, 8:45 AM - 4:30 PM $200
SoulJourney at Anamchara Stables offers classes throughout the year for people who are searching for personal growth and a connection to the horse on a more intimate level. Some of these classes include riding, some classes are ground exercises only.
This 3-day retreat celebrates the spiritual connection between humans and horses, our “soul friends.” Participants are invited to connect to the healing power of the elements, the living present and the five senses, music, and to find their own balance between the light and shadows that touch us all. Participants are guided through a series of exercises and meditations and are encouraged to bring pillows and/or blankets for comfort during meditations, and any other items spiritually significant to them to place in the center of the healing circle.
The old Celts called it "thin places". A.H. Maslow talked about "peak experiences". Contemplatives practice m"mindfulness". No matter what you call it, working with horses helps us to step aside from our stressful daily life into a different space.
Each evening will be divided into "classroom" time and arena time. We will spend time connecting with our horse partner, working with horses on the ground and in the saddle. This will be a place of community to share our horse stories and our thoughts about life and nature.
In this workshop, participants will engage with horses to discover the ways these magnificent animals see themselves and others. Through meditation and on-the-ground exercises, participants will explore their own hopes, fears, and struggles with their bodies. Participants will engage with radical self-acceptance, self-empowerment, compassion, and profound respect.
