Linda Bruce and Vivian Thwaits of Soulful Prairies and Art Soul and Horses Present
Horses, Art and Transformation 2 Day Retreat
Changing Your Story
Slip away for an evening and day to recharge and bring awareness to where you have been, where you are, and where you are headed. What passions are pulling at you and what do you need to let go of to step into your new story? Vivian Linda and the horses have planned a retreat that will stir your soul.
You will enter through antique wrought iron gates that will lead you down a quarter mile road and take you to a place of serenity. The land is speckled with a 1800’s log cabin, a nine stall barn created from new and salvage and in the forefront stands a brand new house that looks somewhat like a barn. Your accommodations will be either in the cabin or in the lower level of the new house. Soulful Prairies is the home to nine horses, a pig, two goats, chickens and mini donkey and horse. You will have many opportunities to spend time to get to know the residence during your stay.
Friday Evening we will indulge in a fabulous dinner, spend time with the horses and get to know each other around a ceremonial fire while munching on ice-cream cone s’mores.
Saturday will open with healthy smoothies. We will then immerse ourselves in creating a piece of artwork that will inspire us to find connection with the intricacies of what brings you joy. The horses will enhance this experience with their innate beauty and ability to be in the moment to bring fun and clarity around your creation.
Come slow down, spend time in nature, snuggle with a fuzzy muzzle, enjoy connecting with a small group of woman and create. We guarantee you will leave with an inspirational feeling of rejuvenation.

I strongly value the seeking of truth and answers to create a full life for oneself and others. This never ending process has brought me to a place of combining my social work, counseling, Equine Gestalt Coaching, life and horse experience together to create a place where human and horse can partner and discover the healing powers that exist within each of us.
Art Soul and Horses
RN, BSN, Reiki Master, Equine Gestalt Coach and Mixed Media Artist
Eighteen years ago I was called to the nursing profession after a tragic loss. Over the years I have worked as an RN in both clinical and administrative settings, and learned that when you pour your heart and soul into everyone else, it can leave you empty, overwhelmed, burned out and at risk of developing compassion fatigue. In the middle of my own burn out on the job I reconnected with my love of horses and art. This journey has brought me to a place of peace and my greatest hope is that in sharing my story you too will be inspired to set on a journey of compassionate self-care that will allow you to fly
