Equus Workshop: Trust
“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.” – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
TRUST, a one-day equus retreat at Creek Hollow Ranch, Ramona CA
Saturday, January 19, 2013
Developing a profound sense of inner trust is a gift that will give you freedom—freedom to express yourself, engage easily with others, and live the life you’re meant to live.
Come join me and our wise four-legged teachers for a one-day equus retreat and experience the profound shifts that can happen when you learn to see yourself from the eyes of a horse.
How Can Horses Teach Trust?
To exist in the wild and to rely on their family herd for safety, nourishment, and well-being, horses have an innate sensitivity and ability to trust. They are the perfect teachers to show us how to develop trust from within.
Horses are deeply sensitive beings and are beautiful mirrors the moment you step into the roundpen. How you show up in the world is gently reflected back to you by the horse.
No horse experience needed, only the willingness to get a little dusty and have fun as these wise creatures remind you of your true nature. All coaching is on the ground, there’s no riding.
The easiest way to make shifts is to experience change in action. It’s often not enough for your mind to know something. We teach you to drop out of your busy mind and into the wisdom of your body, where instinct, heart, and clarity exist.
Learning through experience is the most direct way to create profound shifts in your life.
In order to cultivate trust, we’ll explore what’s holding you back from trusting yourself and others. Perhaps an experience from the past gave you plenty of evidence to not trust again. Or maybe you want to do something entirely new, and the unknown prevents you from taking a leap. You don’t really need to know why to begin, the horses will help us clearly see what’s holding you back.
We will practice presence and awareness. Learning to access the wisdom that is beyond your mental and analytical mind is groundwork for developing trust.
Accessing and acting on internal instinct and intuition is at the heart of learning how to trust. Beyond the limited understanding of the thoughts and beliefs in your mind, you have a powerful force to rely on, a wisdom and guidance that is beyond words.
Play is oddly linked to trust. The ability to do something with curiosity, exuberance, pleasure—to play—means that a sense of trust is inherent. You drop judgments, failure, protection to exist in play, where there are only experiments, imagining, and feedback. Play lets you track the hot and cold tracks of your life. Find out what amazing teachers horses can be in play.
A Day with Horses
You’ll spend a day with the horses at Creek Hollow Ranch, a beautiful ranch located on 350-acres of wide open valleys and hills. Within an intimate group setting, you’ll learn from one another and the horses.
