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.

Hiking, Horses, Meditation

Immerse yourself in nature, and allow  the fields,  woods and Horses of BHW's  be a restorative balm.  Participants can allow this experience to be a catalyst to inspire and spark creativity, help you to set goals, or get your goals back on track.  This program can spark creativity for your vision board, create a vision board or to recenter and press the reset button by stepping out of your busy life.  This is a perfect program for corporate leaders or any one looking to  practice being calm and  assertive in the presence of horses.  Or just simply for those of you that would like to combine their love of horses and hiking and to step out of your busy life.  Hiking and Horses brings two incredible worlds together via mindfulness, meditation and journal entriesParticipants are led through a mindful meditation, centered in breath and body awareness prior to taking the horses for a hike.  We will then hike through the beautiful fields and woods, along a trail with a babbling brook, with our Equine companions, to a meditation sit spot.  You will  then be guided in a solo sitting meditation, time will be allotted  for journal entries and/or  free association writing,  or vision board inspiration.  

We will then hike back to the barn and have a moment to close the program.

Testimonials:

"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

 

 


When...people experience the slightest hint of the sheer, unbridled euphoria that comes from moving in perfect rhythm with a thousand pounts of heart and muscle, there is absolutely no turning back.
