Equine Grief Support Workshop

 In partnership with Dancing Spirit Equine Facilitated Learning and Coaching, LLC and TRU Community Care

If you have experienced the death of a loved one and are looking to take the next step in your healing journey, join us in this unique offering.
* Get outside in nature and unplug from the electronics and distractions
* Plug into the rhythm, sights, sounds, and smells of horses and the natural world so that you slow down, reflect and notice what is happening inside.
* Be in a safe space to not be okay or happy and allow horses to be present to you as you are … sad, grieving, a mess, mad, confused, lost …
* Invite horses to be your guide and teacher to access greater awareness and renew your spirit
* Meet others experiencing grief and loss and know you are not alone
Horses are non-judgmental beings who model and invite humans to become present and honest with our feelings, emotions, and thoughts. As prey animals, their survival and ability to thrive depend on being fully present, self-aware, and emotionally intelligent. They are excellent communicators and listeners who respond to what they receive from us, making them great mirrors for our learning, growth, and healing.
Join us to let the healing power of horses help you as we slow down, reflect, and have some fun together. Come with an open mind and heart and discover what the horses have for you at this stage of your grief journey.
Various activities outside in nature with and without horses throughout the day.
*No prior horse experience is needed. We will engage with the horses safely on the ground.

Full Day Workshop for Adults from 10am-4pm ($100 fee). July 16th & August 13th

New Beginnings – 6 Week Program

The days, weeks and months following the loss of a spouse or partner may be filled with many unexpected and challenging struggles. Within the first year these may seem impossible to cope with. In this group you will be invited to partake in discussions and doable tasks to help create a sense of movement and purpose, including reflections and activities between sessions. The 6 interactive meetings will deal with many of the difficult topics that arise during the first year after the loss of a spouse/partner.

Unmasking the True Self – Experiential Sound Meditation

with Ann Martin

With Halloween just around the corner, our theme for this participatory sound journey is MASKS! We all have an array of masks for the various roles we play in our daily lives. This meditation offers an opportunity to peel back the layers of masks to tap into the full potential of who you truly are, at the core, without masks. Sound and vibration from quartz crystal and metal singing bowls, gongs and other meditative instruments, help you come to center, without the mind-chatter of negative self-definitions, and awaken the whole and beautiful picture of Self – something that can feel “derailed” during grief. The result is authentic power and self-appreciation. If possible, wear or bring a mask to this event. If you prefer to recline during a sound bath, bring a thick pad and pillows for comfort. (Singing bowls are provided)

Cost: $40

Saturday, October 29th 10am-11:30am at HeartLight Center

Space is Limited, Registration is Required
