Announcing an innovative workshop: horses helping humans to heal from eating disorders!

I am so excited about an upcoming venture, presented by Beyond The Arena and Kate Daigle Counseling:  A full-day workshop at a beautiful ranch in Larkspur, Colorado where horses spend the day connecting with women and helping them on their journey towards recovery from eating disorders!

You may remember a post I wrote a few weeks ago about my experience visiting the ranch that hosts Beyond The Arena, a coaching business which is owned by Devon Combs who is an exceptional gestalt-trained equine coach.  I was moved beyond words by the authentic and powerful healing presence that horses embody in their natural beings, and now I am working with Devon to present a workshop on August 27th where women who are affected by eating disorders can receive the same gift of self-acceptance and peace in the midst of these stunning creatures.

I later started to look for ways to have a ranch of my own, I looked into turnkey ranches for sale to understand what is that that I was looking for in the ranch for an affordable price. Have you ever felt like you needed to get out of your head and into your body?  Do you truly know what your body is experiencing on a daily basis — where it holds hurt, pain, anxiety, excitement, joy?  What would it be like to connect with those parts and emotions within yourself and truly accept YOU for the amazing person that you are?  I have first-hand experience with the benefits of connecting with horses at Beyond The Arena’s ranch, and I took with me many memories that I will never forget.  I also was able to release a part of myself that was being held back by fear and stress…the horses I was working with allowed me the space to let go of obstacles in the way of my path.

The workshop will be from 9:30am-4:00pm on Saturday, August 27th.  We welcome women ages 18 and older, and are focusing this workshop on women who are currently struggling or in recovery from eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and other types of disordered eating).  We will spend the day with several horses who will invite us to experience a peaceful space with them, and we will process emotions that come up as a result of dwelling in this non-judgmental environment.  One of the best parts: you do not need to have any previous horse experience!

Please contact me for further information – and spread the word!  Space is limited!
