Horses are amazing at teaching us all that and more through interactive exercises in a small group.

Personal Retreats

Transformation and empowerment through shamanic healing with horses

This offering is a daylong immersion into shamanic healing supported by horses and surrounded by mountains, rivers, forests, and lakes.

Shamanism is based in Animism, the ancient tradition of our Ancestors who looked to Nature as their spiritual teacher. It is a living wisdom without doctrine that allows us to build inner resources and access sacred guidance. Shamanic healing is a means to reach the source of an issue in spirit and to release the pattern of pain and suffering. It is a path for reclaiming your power and for restoring joy and meaning to your life.

In Equine Guided Personal Growth, horses join the healing process. They are amazing teachers in human development, emotional healing, and spiritual growth. They teach us critical life skills, including managing emotions, navigating change, setting boundaries, and speaking our truth.

Your personal retreat is from 11am until 5pm and the package is completely customizable. Here is an example of what your day could look like:

We meet at the horse farm at 11am to sit with the horses during our initial conversation, then move into a shamanic healing ceremony supported by the horses, followed by an equine guided session during which you interact one-on-one with one of the horses for further insight.

We break for lunch from about 1-2 pm so you have time to process the experience, write some notes, and nourish your body.

In the afternoon, we go on an easy, 10-minute hike to one of the most stunning yet remote waterfalls for a Water ritual of surrender & forgiveness, an Earth ritual of grounding & planting seeds, or an Air ritual of breath & connection. For a Fire ritual of releasing & transformation, we would meet in Ulrike’s backyard.

We conclude the day with an embodiment practice and you can choose either a therapeutic Yoga session, a Reiki treatment, or a soothing massage.

Fees

Bundled into a personal retreat package your investment is only $420 for a full day of healing, transformation, and empowerment. Or come with a friend or your spouse and pay only $385 per person.
