Shamanic Healing sessions- Call to schedule With our beloved Belle or in our healing studio. Shamanic healing offers another level of insight to our selves. We hold certain information in our body, past traumas or ideas, these holding places often need the aid of release via energy healing. Without the release, they can cause discomfort, pain, dis-ease. Horses show us what we need to see about our behavior, our inhibitions or if we are present or not. As horses respond to the truth, even if we think that we can hide it. The horse will show you what you do not want to speak of, there is no hiding in their presence. Especially a previously wild horse that responds to energy so acutely, as it has been the difference of life and death to her. Just being in their presence is often an exhale and allows one to feel something more than themselves. Combining Shamanic healing in the presence of our Equine partners is profound and provides us with an even keener insight to ourselves, as they are pure and show us.

"In just one lesson, Monica helped me find a greater connection with my horse. Starting with simple stretching and mindfulness exercises together on the ground, I was far less stiff and and listening better when I mounted. And during the mounted activities I could tell by the improved softness and responsiveness of my mare that she was happier, too. Monica is very knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. I'd highly recommend her to any rider whether a beginner or an expert. This is a fun, relaxing and rewarding way to spend time with your horse that really pays off for any discipline!' SG, experienced rider from Connecticut
"I really enjoy your practice and am happy to find myself there! I think you lead a very thoughtful and nurturing practice that flows beautifully and is a work out!!! I love your knowledge of the body and your kind approach. As I said ....blissful!!!!! "JF. Yogi, Professional Dancer
"Monica allows us to stay grounded and to take the practice as deep as you need it. She offers modifications to postures to meet the needs of everyone. Every day it is different, no matter how many times you have done the same posture, I am often lost before I begin, and this practice always keeps me grounded." EB Yogi, Mother, Board Member
