As a young girl, I often took off on my horse for the day to explore the bar ditches and corn fields of my childhood playground. And if there were questions in my life that I happened to be pondering, somehow magically at the end of the day, the answers were always there. It was these early experiences of being in nature and with my horse that grounded a fundamental understanding within my soul that horses helped me think better. Just being in their presence opened my mind to new possibilities and helped guide me along the path that I was supposed to follow. I just needed to listen.
Consider the times you’ve been near a horse. There is a big energy that encompasses you in their presence – encircling you in a field of grounded nature. If you stop you will notice the horse magnifies our awareness of emotions and the feelings that we embody. If you really play in this field, you will discover that there is wisdom to be gained and explored. It is in this sacred space that the Syzygy Equine Vision Journey Retreats are built. It’s a place where you can connect to your own soul, play in the possibilities and set new paths.
A Syzygy Equine Vision Journey will help you discover your essence and uncover your dreams while working with my magnificent and wise herd of horses. Over the course of these two days you will experience the power of Equine Guided Learning, as you engage with these sentient giants. You will discover your strengths, values and passions to define the essence of you, and take time to dream your future. The Syzygy herd will take this journey with you, helping you trust your inner voice and find the life you’ve always wanted to live.
Our time will be filled with self exploration, yoga, shamanic journey, creating and walking a medicine wheel, and one-on-one round pen sessions, all with the support and participation of the horses. Each element brings a new glimpse into your soul and helps bring together the pieces of your own unique puzzle. And no prior horse experience is required!
Very often big life changes take place following these weekends of exploration – I’ve had people leave dead-end jobs and start new careers, college students change majors and others who have just redirected their life focuses. Always the power of these retreats are best described by prior participants, and I share a few notes that have come my way:
“My mind and soul were liberated and I was able to open up to new possibilities in the future.”
“This experience will be a touch point of strength for my life. Through this exploration I have identified a solid set of healing forces that I can come back to when I need them – such as the smells of pine, sage and horses – centering my mind with yoga – and remembering all of the good I have achieved in my career and life.”
“I was stunned by this experience. The difference is that you emphasize participants listen to their hearts. This may seem superficial at first blush but it makes all the difference in getting to the core of the person and understanding what journey they are truly meant to undertake.”
