We stand as a group in the arena after a full day of learning and growth. The gentle warmth of the late spring air fills us. The herd is nearby, peacefully eating hay and grass. Along with the herd's contented munching, we can hear the sounds of birdsong outside. We are surrounded by the herd's earthy hay-and-hide scent and the bright smell of fresh grass. Through our bodies, we can feel the connection to ourselves, each other, and the Earth.
Standing in a circle, we reflect on what we experienced, speaking of transformation, deep insights, and connection. We glow with the day's work and the steps we have taken on our life's journey, knowing we will take these lessons into our relationship with ourselves and the world we live in.
We finish the day by expressing gratitude, to the horses acting as guides, to the beautiful space surrounding us, and to those who joined us with openness and fierce vulnerability.
If this sounds like the end of an ideal day, join us for our Connection Retreat, happening on Monday, May 31, 2021. For more information and to register, please visit the event registration page.
