Being on a cancer healing journey can be tremendously challenging in many ways. Not only are you facing your own fears but also the judgements and projections of friends, family and the medical establishment surrounding you. There is a great deal of fear around the word 'cancer' and receiving a cancer diagnosis can be terrifying.

Learning to navigate the windy road of a healing journey is an ever expanding opportunity for growth, but it is not without it's challenges. Many say that cancer was the greatest blessing to bring their life into perspective and to finally heal unresolved wounds.

I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in September, 2016. It has been a wild road, at times with beauty and other times with great struggle. Just when I think I've got it figured out there is another opportunity for growth around the corner. It is the journey of ultimate surrender!

My horses have been one of my greatest saving grace during this time. I am inspired to weave in an introductory Eponaquest workshop with valuable lessons that will benefit others on a natural healing cancer journey. I truly believe that knowing the body of this work has what kept me sane during the most trying moments.

  • Use emotion as information

  • Recognizing and moving beyond conditioned behaviors and thought patterns

Horse Medicine: Reclaiming Our Vitality through the Path of Horse

Horse Medicine: Reclaiming Our Vitality through the Path of Horse

Horse Medicine: Reclaiming Our Vitality Through the Path of the Horse
699.00

Horses offer us humans a profound gift. While simultaneously being grand symbols of strength and beauty, they also have an uncanny ability to mirror elements of ourselves not yet revealed to us. Horses inspire us while also reflecting back our unspoken dreams and emotional components of ourselves we may be suppressing. They give us the possibility to grow beyond our limited viewpoint of who we think we are.

Horse medicine offers us the opportunity to come back to a sense of wholeness with ourselves again. Through Eponaquest exercises based on the work of Linda Kohanov we will journey through the sacred landscape of the soul with the help of the horses to arrive back to our authentic truth once again. In this workshop we will learn to see what is holding us back from embracing our true authentic selves and in doing so learn to celebrate life and allow more joy and peace in.

There will be a shamanic journey, powerful exercises with the horses, expressive art therapy, information about the emotional message chart, boundaries and other effective tools to help gain self insight and clarity within one's self. 

In this workshop you will learn to:

  • Use emotion as information

  • Accessing a more authentic, creative presence

  • Recognizing and moving beyond conditioned behaviors and thought patterns

  • Setting Boundaries: establishing and maintaining clear and consistent personal space

  • Body Scan: using the body as a sensing device

  • Hands-on activities with horses as guides

  • Developing essential skills for building Authentic Community

  • Important healing tools for your own healing journey

Grief Ritual with Horses

Grief Ritual with Horses

Grief Ritual with Horses
199.00
"Grief is a form of generosity, which praises life and the people and the situations which we have lost. Grief that praises life shows the depth of our appreciation for having been given life enough to begin with, to experience both love and loss and that with all the mistreatment we humans give to the earth, we still have this amazing unlikely opportunity to actually speak and bathe in the Divine." - Martin Prechtel

Grief rituals are a way to give a voice to the sorrows that might be held within whether it may be losing a beloved friend, partner, relationship, family member, career or grieving the reality of our current environmental and social world. 

If we allow our tears to flow freely than our laughter is that much more liberated to be shared... Without expressing the emotions locked within we can easily fall into numbness which is equal to not living a full and meaningful life.. And it is in allowing ourselves to feel the depths of our true experience we give ourselves permission to come alive once more...

Tara has gone through an extensive journey with grief in the last two and a half years as two of her closest friends died young from cancer. To read part of the story click this link. It is through this experience she realized how vitally important it is to allow one's grief to be expressed. She has created a grief ritual combined with her equine assisted learning (EFL) and coaching tools with the horses  to hold safe space for others grief to emerge, release  and heal.

In this grief ritual journey you will experience expressive art therapy, time with the horses for self contemplation, do a release exercise with the horses, learn tools to understand and be with your grief and an active group grief ritual to memorialize and release your grief.

Here's what a past grief ritual participant had to say: 

"Being witnessed in releasing grief was much more powerful than doing it alone. Tara held a safe container and being with the horses was lovely!" -Samantha Russell

This event will be both inside and outside. If the weather is unpredictable the outside activities will be orientated and timed to work in accordance with the weather...

Healing with Horses 3 day Workshop
699.00

This will be my only 3 day workshop in 2017! Come spend time with the horses and I and discover some of the key elements of how I have been healing myself naturally in my cancer journey. (Note: This is not a 'how to heal cancer naturally workshop' but how to orient your mind and body to heal in the most efficient and joyful way possible with whatever mental or physical ailment you are challenged with. Everyone is welcome to this workshop!) 

We all are on a healing journey whether it be from an emotional or physical ailment.  These are powerful times we're living in and the key to finding balance lies in our ability to be present to our own personal healing journey. All of us have the innate ability to heal ourselves of whatever malady comes our way and horses can be wonderful assistants in the process of healing. Time with the horses offers an immense opportunity to dive into a deeper level of personal transformation.

Tara was diagnosed in September, 2016 with Stage 3 Breast Cancer. She decided to take an unconventional route to heal her cancer and decided to decline the standard route of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. She is now successfully healing her cancer through natural means. Tara credits her four horses as part of the reason she is thriving through her cancer journey as horses offer tremendous healing potential.

Our bodies store our emotions, whatever is not released in a healthy manner becomes stuck, which can eventually turn into dis-ease. There are so many tools for healing and the horses are powerful allies to help us tune into the messages our bodies have to share.

The proper use of boundaries, the messages behind emotions and the dramatic impact stress has upon our bodies and minds are some of the concepts you will be introduced to, along with nurturing, safe time with the horses.

Join Tara and her gorgeous horses for this three workshop to taste the brilliant essence of the transformational quality of being with the horses.
