Goals / Outcomes of Workshop


Connect with your hidden wisdom.

Learn the messages behind emotions.

Tap into your personal power and learn how to use it.

Develop your non-verbal communication skills and the use of breath.

Transfer your skills from the ground into the saddle.

 

Who is this for?


Anyone including children who wish to learn new skills and expand their awareness. This particular workshop also gives you the option during the last 2 days to either do mounted work or further EFL work.

What is it for? How it will affect your life?


Learning through experience or experiential learning has a lasting impact rather than learning in a traditional linear fashion. When you feel the results in real time, the skills you learn are accessible, tangible and speak for themselves. No amount of lecturing or studying can have this particular effect. This makes it easier to implement what you will learn into your day to day life. We want to share useful tools that will have an immediate and lasting effect on your life and I am absolutely confident they will. 

What will you learn and find out?


  • Learn the messages behind emotions.

  • Discover the intelligence and wisdom of your body.

  • Access the other 90% of communication that is non-verbal.

  • Tap into your personal power and learn how to use it.

  • Uncover tools for building a deeper relationship with your horse.

  • Develop a greater awareness of yourself and others.

What can Yoga with horses do for you?


  • Through the practice of pranayama/breathing techniques you will learn how to calm and still the mind and reconnect with your physical body and your spirit.

  • Practicing meditation will bring you to a deeper sense of presence and being fully present in the now

  • Practicing pranayama, meditation and asanas/poses with horses will help you to develop a deeper connection with these noble beings and lead you deeper in your path to finding your True Authentic Self.

GIFTING ECONOMY

Juliana’s Philosophy

My mission is to assist the horses, to empower people through experiential learning. I have discovered so much more beyond riding from the horses and I want to share it with as many people as possible.  

Conscious Equine Connections is about facilitating loving relationships with our horses, with ourselves and with others. It’s about being in the moment, connecting with the now and uncovering our true self.

Juliana is passionate about maintaining a gifting economy, so this will be the first EFL retreat of it’s kind in the world! The base fee covers the cost of the retreat and will go to your Host: Kindred Spirits, but Juliana’s time, your tuition cost, will be offered to you entirely by donation!

You will be invited to make a donation at the end of the retreat. This donation will go to Juliana in exchange for her time.

Some more about operating by donation and why it is her mission to operate this way.

Kindred Spirits’ Response

At Kindred Spirits we believe in the sharing of information, showing gratitude and compassion to all Beings and to Life.

We strive to keep our prices as low as possible, to pay costs,  to make it more accessible to all who want to learn and make a difference in their lives and in the world.

When Juliana presented her “gifting economy” idea and how she works through donations only, I was inspired by this beautiful woman’s desire to create a healthier, happier, giving and receiving way of living, and so this will be our very first and I believe maybe very first in the world, of offering an Equine Therapy Healing Clinic on a donation base.

The one week retreat with lodging and meals will be at a price to cover the costs.

Juliana will offer her teachings and therapies based on a donation at the end of the retreat.

And I, Terry, will also offer the yoga classes and Yoga in Harmony with Horses Holistic Healing classes, in the same way, where you invited to offer a donation at the end of the retreat.

We welcome you with an open heart to experiment this new ideology. We hope that it is successful and that we can promote this type of giving and receiving in a world that is in so much need of compassion, understanding, sharing and love.
