Imagine yourSELF here....

Imagine yourSELF here….

Calling all Courageous Cowgirls…or wannabe’s
Are you ready to THRIVE-not survive? 

The journey of life is often filled with unexpected twists and turns. No matter what age we are, most of us understand that life requires a healthy dose of flexibility. As we know, sometimes that’s easier said than done. What does it mean to be resilient? What does it mean to THRIVE-not just survive-life’s trials and tribulations? Imagine a co-creative week in the gorgeous landscape of Costa Rica! In this magical environment, through ground work with the herd and experiential activities, we will weave the alchemy of creativity with the wisdom of horses to master the Eponaquest 4-point method of emotional agility, the art of emotional strength training.

Through encounters with the herd, expressive arts, writing, mindfulness practices and movement, Sheri’s Creative Awakenings process deepens and takes on a whole new meaning, giving you the skills you need to THRIVE-not just survive-during challenging times.

Each day will include, daily yoga classes-both on and off the horse-with Equisol’s very own Heidi Potter. You will receive daily journal prompts designed to spark your imagination. There will be lively group discussions and engagement with the herd, as well as sacred, quiet time for self-reflection.
This retreat/workshop is appropriate for all levels. If you are new to horses or riding or even timid about the idea, this is a fantastic opportunity to learn how to interact with a horse through an energetic and spiritual connection-not as a beast of burden. In doing so, you will deepen your connection to your authentic self, build confidence, improve communication and reconnect with your true nature, your intuitive knowing.  If you have had past trauma with horses, this is an excellent opportunity to heal this wound, in a safe, and nurturing space, with horse as your guide and teacher.
Replenish and immerse yourSELF in the beauty of your surroundings with yoga, horses, delicious cuisine, an included 60-minute massage, jungle and waterfall horse back rides and incredible accommodations.  Group size is limited to accommodate all needs and to create a unique, personal experience. This workshop qualifies as an Eponaquest Introductory workshop, allowing you to enroll in future advanced level workshops with Linda Kohanov.  Download the Full Brochure.
