WEEKEND INTENSIVES

farm-house weekend RESIDENTIALS for Women to refresh and inspire

The most immersive part of our programme, these three weekends spread out over the year will enable you to deep dive into your unique process and self development. Here we facilitate encounters with our herd of horses, who offer  deep, powerful, gentle reflections.  You are free to let go and step back from daily life, exploring  for yourself in a soulful, relaxed environment among kindred spirits.

Learning about yourself through the medium of being with horses is dynamic and often joyful experience, even for women who have been afraid of horses.  You will be guided by expert facilitators Harriet and Laira, who have been practicing Equine Guided Learning for 14 years. Body and soul will also be nourished with delicious food, yoga and massage. The retreats take place at a tranquil Seventeenth Century  farmhouse in Nottinghamshire, just an hour from London Kings Cross by train.

Experienced Facilitators

Adept at holding group process, supporting the depth of emotion while maintaining a light touch. Leaders in the field of Equine Guided Learning (EGL) and experienced horse women. We offer a warm, intuitive and feminine approach.  


Deep, experiential and embodied learning experience

The weekends are designed to catalyse growth and change at a deep level. Women can take the space to really connect with themselves, with each other, and with the horses whose responses offer a mirror of each participant's internal reality. There is opportunity to develop self awareness and then to rehearse and integrate new ways of being and doing that support the emergence of each woman's potency and joy. Something very special can happen in a circle of mutually supportive women during these weekends, and deep friendships often grow from this shared experience

It is difficult to summarise my learning over the week as it has been extensive and deep. In essence I feel it is all about ‘quality of presence’; about my ‘being’ as the horse is a creature of ‘being’ too. It feels like the horse and person weave together like a tapestry - if the core the person is sure of themselves and in tune with the horse, the more the horse responds - it is as if it’s saying ‘finally, you’re speaking my language”
— Sarah
