Meditation with the horses
Treat yourself to a peaceful and restorative evening.
Join Andrea and Cheri once a month from 7pm-8:30pm for a nature walk and meditation. Accompanied by the beautiful horses of Horse Discovery, let us drop into the quiet, grounded place of our hearts, where horses naturally dwell.
We begin by settling ourselves on our blankets in the round pen, on the grass or in the hay loft. Cheri will provide a brief overview of how horses communicate with us using their bodies. Andrea will lead us through a guided meditation and we'll notice how the horses respond as we shift into a more mindful presence.
We may walk out to the forest and spend time cradled among the tall pines, or stay closer to the horses.
When the meditation is over, you're welcome to stick around from 8:30-9pm. Meet and greet the horses over the fence and 'listen' to any messages they have for you.
What to bring:
A blanket to sit on
A water bottle
Please dress for the weather, wear long pants for the occasional patch of poison ivy, bug spray
We’ll remain outside and 6 feet apart, but please bring a mask.
Cost: $30, or 3 sessions for $75

Wisdom Teaching of the Horse
“All of our wisdom for healing and well-being lies within us, but how to find our way to these precious gifts? In the presence of horses and with meditations to help light the way, we can find and trust our own groundedness, integrity and capacity for love and gratitude that is so natural to the horse, and ultimately, to us.”
We plan to be in the round pen, surrounded by the horses.

"Joe and I had a wonderful horse meditation experience. It was relaxing and relieved a lot of stress mentally as well as physically. I received much needed healing for a knee that has been a problem for a long time."
"Andrea, with her soft, gentle voice and expertise, guided us through a meditation. Then we did a walking meditation beside the paddocks on Cheri’s beautiful property. We ended in an amazing forest and did another body scan meditation. It was a calm, focused, beautiful evening surrounded by nature and horses of course 😊. Even though the air was chilly, our hearts were warmed by the environment, the stillness and these two beautiful women facilitating the event. A perfect little getaway from the craziness of our current world state. It definitely put things into perspective, which is quite a huge accomplishment these days!"
"I wanted to express my gratitude to both you and Andrea for inviting me into your piece of heaven, both figuratively and spiritually. I'm feeling both cleansed and awakened by my experience. And being amongst others during our time together was magic.There was a feeling of calm amongst us all as we lay spell bound in our meditation...read more."
