Horsesanity – Follow your true nature

horsesanity logoFollow Your True Nature

Mindfulness through Horses and Wild Nature

8 days 7 nights    –   August 7th  to August 14th  2016

The purpose of this retreat is to provide the space for you to explore your world from a fresh perspective.

Immersed in the wildness of this ancient land you will be able to bring yourself into the present and become mindfully aware. Through the presence of the horses, you will be guided in your exploration of your true self.

This is not a luxury retreat where you will spend your time sipping cool drinks by the pool, nor is it a wilderness survival test where you are pushed and tested to your limits. Rather, it is a supportive experience where you will be able to challenge yourself and cultivate mindfulness; non-judgemental, open and curious in the present moment.

Yolynn jenkinsur Two legged Retreat Leader

Lynn Jenkin has had a life time learning Mindfulness from her horses, but it was not until she collaborated with her partners Sandra Banister and Pam Seccombe to bringHorsanity into being that she began to share the equine experience with others. The horses bring their own skills, the same skills they have been using for thousands of years. Lynn brings her skills as a facilitator and coach developed over her corporate career, which is of slightly less duration than thousands of years (although beforeHorsanity it sometimes felt that long).

Lynn will be supported by Rachel Dillon and Andrew Kikeros of On the Verandah. Rachel and Andrew have been running retreats and outback experiences in the Kimberly for many years and are experts in combining just the right amount of activity and the space to discover yourself. Our hosts are Roderick and Alida Woodland, owners of Digger Rest, a fully functioning cattle station (and featured in the movie Australia).
