We utilize the horses to facilitate and reinforce proprioception, present state awareness, perceiving through sensing rather than thinking, and to reveal coping strategies that interfere with all of the above.
Horses demand presence and congruence from us to align in cooperation and flow. They are incredibly patient and willing to wait, all the while communicating what is needed, if we are willing to feel.
Our horse program is incorporated into our other programs, as well as occasionally offered as a retreat experience.
Offering guidance in uncovering truth, in making conscious decisions, and in taking creative actions that move in the direction of being more present and aligned through a series of gradual steps that assist in uncovering what is false, so that what is true can be felt and experienced clearly – - – maybe for the first time.
To watch Holly guide someone through the inquiry process is to see a form of mastery at work. Her approach, while loving and patient, is tireless in pursuit of the truth that lies beyond "story". By drawing on her personal practice of confronting the false self, Holly is adept at cornering ego so it reveals itself. Her natural gifts of deep listening and intuition, allow her to lead clients on a journey of self-discovery. The result is a taste of freedom that may leave one hungry for more.
