Are you yearning for a soul-nourishing escape? Picture this: a serene rural country property, that invites you to rediscover your true essence. A safe space, that encourages self-exploration, and soulful connection with some magnificent fellow creatures …

Here’s why this one-day retreat is an experience you won’t want to miss:

Creative Alchemy. Wander our 23-acre farm property, surrounded by forests, where wildlife abounds and wildflowers bloom, where the air smells of earth and freedom. Let the land inspire you as you relax into exploring your inner landscape.

Get Grounded. Close your eyes. Breathe… CJ will start our day by guiding us through a meditative journey, a bridge between the seen and the unseen. These quiet moments will let you hear your inner whispers and remember your forgotten dreams.

Meet Our Magical Herd—engage with these gentle beings who mirror our emotions and hold ancient wisdom. Under Jane’s expert facilitation, let their eyes speak of resilience, vulnerability, truth, and trust. When you engage with the horses, you step into the present moment. Their non-judgmental gaze will reflect your authenticity and frees your spirit to creatively explore your essence.

Self-Exploration. With CJ’s gentle guidance you will then engage in a creative “inside-outside” mask-making process that will help you break old patterns, reveal self-limiting beliefs, and positively impacting your well-being.

Inner Reflection: Over lunch, sit near the horses or under the shade of a tall tree. Reflect on your journey—the ups, the downs, and the hidden corners of your soul. What have you learned about your authentic self? What longs to be expressed?

Community Connection: Share your discoveries with the horses and one another. Laugh, cry, and witness each other’s artistic process unfold. Be part of a new constellation of voices rising together.

Art as Self-Expression: Allow nature to be your muse as you continue working on a mask that will reveal the beautiful, magical, mystical you – a reflection of your inner landscape and canvas. It’s more than art; it’s a map of your soul. Let it remind you: You are art. You are authentic. You are enough.


Your day includes: opening and closing ceremonies, safe and facilitated time with the horses, guidance through an artistic process using an array of art materials—paints, markers, feathers brushes, ‘gems’ and more to create an 3-dimensonal mask, healthy snacks, beverages, plus a light lunch, and quiet time to enjoy the acreage of Whispering Winds.

Join us for a day of immersion, “face to face”, with equine wisdom, artistic expression, and emotional well-being. Reserve your spot now and let nature’s magic guide you back to yourself.

No previous experience with horses is required. All interactions with the horses take place on the ground (no riding) and are safely and professionally facilitated.
