Balanced Connection Retreat – Montana


linda-300x202Has your soul been reminding you that you need time to connect with nature, slow down, and relax?

There is no better place than the breathtaking mountains of Montana. You will be pampered with home cooked meals, massages, the fuzzy muzzle of a horse and soothing scenery that surrounds you. This is your chance to reconnect with what counts.

Equine Gestalt Coaches and life- long horse women, June Voldseth and Linda Bruce have created an experience where you will learn, grow and find balanced connection in the presence of a horse. Horses are beautiful listeners and teachers. They bring into our awareness what we already know, without judgment or prejudice.

Finding connections not only with ourselves, but with nature, horses, and others, can bring about a keen sense of awareness. When we open doors and see ourselves through different lenses, our perceptions of how we connect with all living things can shift.

Sunday evening we’ll enjoy a delicious home cooked dinner and take time to get to know each other. The following days we’ll connect on the ground with our horses and each other, and then move it into the saddle for riding. You will have the opportunity to ride every day but Sunday. Or, if you prefer not to ride, there will be opportunities for individual coaching, hiking and relaxing. Riders must be intermediate to advanced (able to canter outside an arena)

june-web-1-300x200-1June Voldseth started Bonanza Creek Guest Ranch in 1993. It was a way to get out of the hay field and spend time with two of her passions, horses and people. But life stepped in with much more. Not only has the guest ranch been a fun adventure, but a learning, inspiring, empowering, life changing one. Many guests have also commented that it was a life changing experience for them. At the perfect time, along came awareness of the Touched By A Horse life coaching program and the opportunity to truly make Bonanza Creek a place to learn to live your dreams.

June has a love of horses, cattle, dogs, and the outdoors, especially the mountains of Montana. She is a working ranch wife, mother of 3, and “nana” to 8 grandkids. She is a graduate of Montana State University and a certified coach with Melisa Pearce, founder of the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method (EGCM®) and Touched By A Horse.
