Portland OR Equus Workshop:
Lead From Your Heart; A Journey Home to Love
Wednesday August 2nd At Wild Horse Mountain Farms, Sherwood, Oregon
Equus is a unique, non-verbal, heart-expanding relational experience where a horses mirrors your state of being. As your partner, the horse gently reveals your unconscious expressions and behavior patterns. They are extraordinary guides walking with you on your journey home to love.
So, are you ready to lead with more compassion and see how you show up in your relationships? Let the magnificent horses show you the way to invite clarity, ease and play back into your life. Are you feeling a bit stuck? When you step into the round pen with a horse you will experience true and honest feedback for the way you communicate and lead your life.
Please join me for a transformative, magical experience with horses and let them show you the way to listen for the wisdom of your heart.
Horses show you in a gentle, honest, non-judgmental way, how you express yourself. They have no stories and provide a beautiful biofeedback system. They reflect back to you parts ready to be seen, felt, heard and embraced. Horses tune into the emotions expressed through your body. If you attempt to lead from a place of fear, control or bribery they will either leave you or attempt to lead you. When you lead from a place of ease, gratitude, joy and clarity, you become magnetic and they will want to connect with you at the precise moment you connect with your own heart.

Comments From Previous Workshop Participants
"Spending time in the Los Gatos hills with the horses was some of the deepest healing work I have engaged in thus far in my life. I immediately felt the safety of the space and genuine trust within a group of people I was meeting for the first time. The work is not necessarily easy, but it is necessary if you wish to finally let go of what is holding you back and access the clarity that you deeply desire and deserve. I had believed in my heart that I had “dealt” with various wounds in my life, but the transparent power of the horse quickly told me otherwise in the most loving way one can ever imagine. That window into my subconscious is finally allowing me to take steps towards a life filled with more joy, presence, and purpose. Working with the horses is indescribable. I am forever grateful for such a heart-opening experience." ~ Annie Anton, creative artist and Soul Shoppe Big Hearted Facilitator
"Thank you again for an amazing experience! I am still integrating, this was so powerful for me and I understand now in a deep way, the value of working with the horses. It’s brilliant." ~ Donna Milgram, Executive Director, Institute for Women in Trades, Technology and Science (IWITTS)
"I was thinking about the feedback I got from the horses. Amazing and unbelievable feedback. Huge learnings for me. Especially the “snappy” horse, he told me a lot. I’ve never felt safer and stronger than after the third round pen. Amazing!!!!!!" ~ Wolfgang

Meet Your Facilitator
While the horses provide a gentle and powerful mirror to access your innate wisdom and true magnificence, you will receive compassionate support as you explore the areas in your life where you feel stuck and confused. I listen and gently illuminate areas that may block you from seeing who you really are and support your journey home to your heart. There will never be another You and no matter what your circumstances, no matter how deep the pain, I believe at the core you are love and that you are safe, loved and supported. It is an honor to witness as you discover and create what you envision.
I partner with horses to share the key principals for effective leadership and communication including trust development, healthy boundaries, clarity and the ability to tune into a broader range of communication beyond words. I have been give the unique opportunity for deep practice and integration as a parent of a pre-verbal, energetically sensitive child often described as autism.
