Horse Medicine Journey

  • Adena Springs North 14875 Bayview Avenue Aurora, ON, L4G 0K8 Canada (map)

The ceremony you have been waiting for!

In the lead-up to the October Full Hunter’s Moon, join us for a nourishing 1 day immersive experience blending Horse Medicine, channeled wisdom, drumming and shamanic sound healing.

Relax in a private sanctuary, connect with the magnificence you are capable of having, and elevate your spirit to new heights. Leave with the tools, decisiveness and support to take powerful steps forward in the life direction that calls you.

This sacred experience is happening at Adena Springs, one of Canada's most exclusive equestrian facilities. It is located just 45 min north of Toronto.


Horses as Healers

Horses are great teachers because they have an innate ability to read body language and emotion in a way that ensures their survival. What does that mean exactly?

Horses offer immediate visual feedback about our emotional state. This makes it easy to talk about emotions, because we can translate into the language of horse behaviour.

Working with horses is an easy way to get comfortable with emotions and to relieve the stressful ones. Horses help clients accept painful feelings and replace them with comforting ones that accompany the rich experience of connection. 

Horses also reveal the critical pathway to reaching your goals, by helping you come into emotional resonance with them.

 The Facilitators

The Land

Immerse yourself in nature’s sanctuary just 45 min north of Toronto at Adena Springs. This is your opportunity to experience horse healing in one of the most stunning facilities in the Toronto area. Relax in a pristine environment, with plenty of quiet space available. Meditate atop a beautiful hill, observing a herd of horses roaming free in their paddock.

Adena Springs is located a 55 min drive from Toronto Pearson International Airport. It is accessible by Uber, and a 5 min drive from the Aurora GO station.


Horses are very powerful animals. They teach us a lot about ourselves through their way of being. They get people connected and grounded in their bodies and hearts which is powerful healing.

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.
