Description

Mini Retreat

  • Do you want to increase your sense of wellbeing?
  • Do you seek to be more satisfied with your life?
  • Do you sometimes feel lonely, despite not being alone?

We are a profoundly social species with our need to connect deeply embedded in our bodies and our minds. It starts from the moment we are born and seek to be in connection with our care givers, it is with us when it is our connection to others that keeps us present to our last breath and it is why isolation is such a frequently used torture. Connection is a driving force in our lives .Our brains are ‘wired to connect’.

“This is what our brains were wired for: reaching out to and interacting with others.” Matthew Lieberman

Connection is built upon communication. Not only upon talking, that is just one part of communicating. To be in true communication we need to be able to, above all else, listen. Listen not just to the words spoken but also to the non verbal communication.

“It's not at all hard to understand a person; it's only hard to listen without bias.” Criss Jami, Killosophy

In this Mini-Retreat we explore ways of enhancing our communication and building connection. We combine meditation with mindful interactions with our herd of horses, a species that equal us in their need to be social, to be in connection with others. They grace us by wanting to be in connection with us.

We start the day by welcoming you into community and we work together with the horses to deepen our connectedeness. We are out in nature, connected to the earth and sky and the natural sounds around us. We “break bread” together and practice listening skills to take away and improve our well being when we leave this herd and head home.
