Tell Me Your Story - Retreat
Each of us is a collection of experiences, when we slow down and draw awareness to these moments we can connect deeply to where we have been. This process allows us to bridge the energy we consciously choose to bring forward.
Join us for a 2 1/2 day retreat at Soulful Prairies where you will have the opportunity to discover your personal story through creative expression. We will connect with ourselves and each other through art, experiences with the horses, mindfulness practices, group time and journaling.
Risa, a self-named Creative Connection Coordinator, will guide you in the process of creating your very own voice/story stick.
Linda, an equine gestaltist, will guide us to finding our inner voice and personal rhythm in the grace of the intuitive horses.
As we reveal ourselves through art we can become deeply in tune to the expression held within our stories and the intricate details that have brought us to be who we are. This process helps transcend beliefs that hold us to any negative thoughts from our past and opens space for shifts in perspective and new and vibrant energy to unfold.
Stroll the property, enjoy the fairy forest, angel wings and visit with the various four legged farm residents. Wrap yourself in a blanket and enjoy a rocking chair on the porch with a cup of tea and connected conversation. Get inspired by the fresh country air and the beauty of this magical landscape.

Linda, Gestaltist and owner of Soulful Prairies strongly values the seeking of truth and answers to create a full life for oneself. This never-ending process has brought her to a place of combining her social work, counseling, Equine Gestalt Coaching, life and horse experience together. Her passion is bringing humans and horses together to create an environment of discovery while finding the healing powers that exist within each of us.
