As a follow-up to the publication of my article on Equine-Assisted Shadow Work® last February, I want to share a few pictures with you of our first one-day Equine-Assisted Shadow Work® workshop at Full Circle on November 16th.
The workshop was for women, and I was the facilitator. We had an amazing turnout, 16 participants, and they were an eclectic mix of horse enthusiasts, therapists, educators, body and energy workers and even a well-known physician. We also had six horses and one donkey join us to help me facilitate.
Our day was a blend of Shadow Work® teaching and equine experiential activities allowing the women to explore the archetypes and their shadows through their interactions with the horses. Despite the cold temperatures, women walked away with new insights and personal knowing.
We are excited to announce that, in addition to our Introduction to Equine-Assisted Shadow Work® workshops, we have developed a new retreat offering called “Shadow Work® through the Way of the Horse and Nature: The Four Quadrants of Relationship.” We will begin offering these retreats in 2015, beginning with a retreat for women in May. Stay tuned for news about men’s and co-ed retreats.
“Thank you for a lovely day on Sunday. I came away with far more insight than I could have imagined and it was an amazing experience.” Katie, shown with equine partner Jesse
