WOMEN'S WELLNESS RETREATS

 

UNLOCK THE SUCCESS, LOVE AND LIFE YOU’RE CRAVING BY REVEALING THE MOST GENUINE VERSION OF YOU.

A WELLNESS RETREAT FOR WOMEN. JUNE 12-14, 2020.

You take care of those around you. 

You make sure the details are looked after. 

You’re always there, making sure the needs of your family and friends are met.

You work hard to never let anyone down, but feel like you still do.

You say yes far too often.

You hear how others describe you and think to yourself “That’s not really me”.

When was the last time you said, “I’m going to do what’s best for me”? 

Where are you on your priority list?

We’ve created a safe space, surrounded by the wide-open beauty of the prairies, where your untapped potential is endless and clearly in front of you. This retreat will give you the chance to explore your own heart and find your inner leader, with the help of a trained equine partner.

Presented by EmPower U Equine & Mandy, Pavlovsky of That Glitter Life.

No horse experience is necessary prior to attending our retreat! Whether you’re an experienced rider or have never been near a horse, your success with this program is entirely up to you. All the work is done is from the ground, at no point will we be riding (unless you want to add a riding lesson). This provides the best opportunity for each equine partner to teach in their natural environment. Because everyone learns in their own unique way, our program has been designed to incorporate the different styles of learning. Our programs utilize visual, auditory, verbal, physical, logical, and social tools.

WHY WORK WITH HORSES?

Horses are some of the greatest teachers we could ask for. They are intuitive, honest beings that reflect us right back, like a mirror. In a horse’s world, the rules are clear, easy to understand and dealt with swiftly when challenged.

 

We aren’t always aware of all the ways we’re communicating. Much of our body language and how we present our self to the world is unspoken. Horses are beautifully gifted at seeing you just as you are and reacting to exactly how you show up. They are completely non-judgemental. They simply react to what is in front of them. The wonderful thing about this is that the results are immediate. You may approach your equine partner to have them turn away from you one moment, but by adjusting your approach, their reaction may be entirely different in the next attempt. They hold no preconceived ideas and are open and honest. Before a horse can trust you, they require strong leadership and clear communication. Your equine partner will help guide you through challenges and obstacles to reach success and your authentic self. You will learn how your feelings and behaviours may be affecting much more in your life and relationships than you’re aware of. 

WHAT LESSONS CAN YOU EXPECT OUT OF THIS JOURNEY?

Every single person’s experience in life is different and as such, we know that your experience with this program may not be the same as the person standing next you. We are here to hold space for your growth, whatever that may mean to you, and help you make the most of the lessons your equine partner is trying to teach you.

 

Here are some of the lessons you may find:

 

  • What you say to yourself on the inside needs to match your outward actions.

  • You cannot force something into movement.

  • When you look back, you prevent movement forward.

  • You are responsible for your actions.

  • You are capable of great creativity and innovation.

  • You have an inner leader.

  • Patience is important. 

  • It’s not the end goal, but how you get there that matters.

  • How to work with others, and a 1200 pound partner.

  • To be courageous.

  • To listen.

  • To problem-solve.

  • To be an effective communicator.

  • To work in a team.

  • To be a leader.

  • To be accountable.

  • To trust, not only yourself but others.
