Women’s 4 Day Retreat – Empowerment through Healthy Boundaries

August 24, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - August 27, 2023 @ 3:00 pm


Boundaries are invisible but sturdy lines we draw around ourselves. They protect us in relationships. They’re like the doors and walls of a house or the fence around a garden. Their job is to protect a private space not everyone can have access to. They’re your personal limits to help you protect your energy, dignity, privacy, identity, and more.

Working with horses provides gentle opportunities to strengthen our boundary-setting skills. As horses are members of a herd in which safety is the number one priority, it is in their nature to tune in to their boundaries and the boundaries set around them, as this helps maintain the collective safety within the herd. If we are unsure or not clear, a horse might come into our personal space causing us to move or shift our balance. But when we are present and align our behavior with our intention to hold our space, the horse will respond cooperatively to what we are communicating as they are able to read our body language.

Being able to set boundaries with such a majestic, large animal can be empowering and can make the process of setting boundaries in our day-to-day life less intimidating, especially in those times when it’s difficult to say “no.” Interacting with a horse also teaches us to slow down, check in with ourselves and notice what feels safe and what doesn’t.  

Much like the horses, we need to have healthy boundaries in order to feel safe and protected as well as being able to speak our truth when needed. When we are in touch with our own inner landscape of emotions, beliefs, perception, and power, we are able to establish clear healthy boundaries with others. Boundaries carry firm, compassionate, body centered communication that include respect and truth. 

Many in today’s society are feeling lonely and disconnected. In this 4 day retreat, Laurie,  Jennifer, and Rebecca will explore with you the Medicine Wheel concept of the “whole” human – the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual aspects to understand yourself better. To gain clarity on the places you fear to go and actually avoid. Patterns you want to change that affect your relationship with self and others. Do you have conflicting relationships? Do you feel like you are at war with others?

Learning that you are part of a larger whole heals the feelings of separation so that you can awaken to your essence and gain empowerment and clarity on how you feel and what you want in life. When we learn to deeply listen to what our inner guidance is communicating to us, we awaken to how we can effectively balance power and maintain a state of inner peace & harmony.

      • Recognizing when and how to set a boundary.
