Horses are acutely attuned energetically. They respond to us more fully when our mind, body and spirit are connected. They are extraordinarily accurate ‘mirrors’ of internal processes: emotion, intention, contradiction – and amazing ‘amplifiers’ of the energies they perceive. In this they demonstrate how we can become more present, more potent and more alive.
This experiential week involves meditations and exercises supporting embodied awareness, and interaction with beautiful horses. The number of participants is limited to 10 so that each individual can best be supported in their interaction with the equines. Through witnessing and attending to resonance, guided processes and discussion, the group will also learn from each other.
Participants may hold a particular focus through the week, or none – the ‘work’ finds its own direction, through respectful, mindful interaction with the equines and tracking of somatic process. It is deeply soulful, heart-opening work, which touches those watching as well as those participating.
The approach involves no riding and requires no previous experience. Pam and Lindsay have been leading these workshops together since 2008.
When you book this course please will you send us a short introductory letter telling us about yourself. Please write about your reasons for choosing this workshop. What has drawn you? What has your journey to this point been? Please write whatever you feel is relevant for us to know about you. Writing from the heart is more important than a ‘well-written’ piece. Something between half a page and two pages is probably about right. We would like to have a sense of you as you truly are. Thank you for your openness. The people who will read this are Pam, Lindsay and the Findhorn Foundation workshop organisers. Otherwise what you write is confidential, within the law and allowing for issues of safety. Please send this to us by the end of June 2017.
Our quoted prices are fully inclusive of participation in the workshop or event, accommodation in our guest rooms (including towels and linen), all meals and refreshments, and full access to our community facilities like our meditation sanctuaries.
