Private Equus Workshop: For Anatomy of a Calling Family

Saturday January 21st 10am - 5pm Los Gatos Farms, Los Gatos, CA

I'm delighted to offer you this unique private day for our Anatomy of a Calling Esalen family! Thank you to Michael for coordinating and bringing us all together. Here's a bit of what the equus experience is about and I so look forward to sharing this experience with you!!

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.


Why Horses?

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 the parts of you wanting 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 and clarity, you become magnetic and they will want to connect with you at the precise moment you connect with your own heart.

What The Equus Experience Offers You

You will have the opportunity to make profound shifts in the way you see, listen, feel and create in your life through exercises with a horse! Your visceral experience anchors in a reference point in your body to access as you implement and integrate your new awareness.

  • Awaken core qualities for healthy collaborative and joyful relationships that include presence, listening, compassion, vulnerability, trust, clarity, power and play
  • A deeper awareness and understanding of how you show up and communicate in the world
  • The ability to communicate from a mind-heart-body-soul integrated source of power
  • Personalized implementation strategies to integrate your new awareness into your daily life and relationships.
  • A return to a state of flow, ease and joy


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

"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

“This experience exceeded my expectations. I feel empowered and at peace. I can’t wait to attend another session.” ~ Margret
