Heal Differently: Mindfulness Based Retreat with Horses

23rd May 2017 - 29th May 2017 Hamlet Luxury Farmhouse, English Speakers Abroad


We believe that horses can become our partners in healing by allowing us to experience the serenity of the present moment and provide us mirrors of our own emotions, ways of communicating and challenges in relationships. 'HEAL DIFFERENTLY' programme was carefully designed to provide you with a unique approach to personal health and growth involving the horse-human relationship. It promotes emotional growth and learning, psychological exploration, enhanced relationships, awareness of the present moment, improved communication and encourages insight and healing.

- Support yourself at times of difficulty or failure

- Work with emotions skillfully in a body-oriented way

Other features will also entail being able to:

- Introduce yourself to and interact with horses
