in community with horses
the curious art of listening for what's emerging
Saturday, April 21, 2018
from 10am - 3pm
in Apollo, PA (outside Pittsburgh)
Suggested donation $20 - 100
* a portion of your donation will go to animal care
Pause and listen. What do you hear? What are you listening to? What are you listening for? This is one of those questions I often ask (at workshops and of myself). The variety of answers are amazing and over time through reflection I have begun to recognize surrounding environmental factors that create patterns in my own listening. Come spend time listening in self reflection with us (and the horses of the Stable) to see what's emerging for you!
Self reflection can be incredibly liberating. Reflecting in a herd - deeply inspiring. This workshop will offer space for you to take care of yourself as you build skills around awareness, gratitude and the art of wandering. We'll provide prompts and activities both individually and in community. You'll have the opportunity to share your reflections or not - as you wish. It will be a day to acknowledge the depths possible in our human communication. When you add the element of horse language, you're sure to have a memorable experience.
Have you listened to yourself lately? Found something meaningful? We'd love to hear about it!
No prior horse experience necessary. We won't be riding the horses, rather spending time with them in the paddock and on Stable grounds.
Shout out to our hosts and the herd at Victory Stables!
