Healing with Horses & Yoga Retreat

Stable Sessions

The animal kingdom has many lessons to teach us, and horses are among some its wisest teachers. These majestic creatures help you reconnect with your heart, experience acceptance, and open to authentic relationships. By mirroring your emotions back to you, in a safe space, they help you understand and heal subconscious patterns.

Horses intuitively recognize blocks in our physical bodies and auric fields. They can help clear the energy, releasing repressed emotions and old patterns. They invite you to step into the space of deserving love, support and connection, and they will show up as your friend as you do so. For this reason, working with horses is an incredibly powerful way to accelerate the healing journey. Connecting with horses allows you to bring things to the surface that otherwise might be difficult to process. Combined with reiki, channeled wisdom, and crystal bowl sound therapy, it is then possible to move through these emotions with ease and transform them into better feeling ones.

In the stable sessions, we will activate a new balance between your masculine and feminine sides, and open to the experience of deeper partnerships.

Relax at the historic Forks of the Credit Inn which was built in 1855 in the beautiful Caledon Hills. Recently revitalized, it is now a Boutique Inn and new Yoga Retreat Centre. It's steps away from the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park and the Elora-Cataract Trail. Enjoy hiking along the Bruce Trail and see the falls. Bike the 45 km groomed trail that starts at our doorstep and goes west through Erin, Hillsburgh, Belwood, Fergus to Elora.

I have never had such a profound movement of energy in one sitting - I am awed by the silent power of horses to know, mirror and invite healing. What a sacred blessing and honour to share space with them and come back to myself. My gratitude is immense.
— Amy Douglas
Letting go of things I’ve been carrying a long time and not realizing how heavy and tiring that was. Catching my breath and looking around with a fresh and unburdened or less burdened heart. Big sigh!
— Jacqueline Cardinal
For the first time in as long as I can remember, I let down the barriers, got out of my head, and took a deeper look at my heart and at myself.
— Debbie Johnson
