Adult Workshops

Full Moon Meditation with the Healing Herd of Whispering Equine


Whispering Equine and Pamela Dais Nichol are excited to present a series of 3 full moon guided meditations this summer. This summer series will focus on helping you connect to your Life’s Purpose, by first becoming clear about what your purpose is, discovering what you are doing right now to achieve it and lastly, connecting and becoming clear about the next steps.
This is a unique opportunity to spend time with the healing horse herd of Whispering Equine grounding and centering yourself before we start a guided mediation with your Angelic team guiding you to a higher understanding of yourself.

Why full Moon Meditation?
These Meditation evenings are designed to give your mind a break and allow you to clear the clutter and regroup for the next month. We capitalize on the full Moon Energy because it’s bright strong light helps to illuminate the unconscious mind chatter, allowing you to release, cleanse and revitalize your soul. Taking part in this monthly ritual is a rejuvenating way to keep you on purpose and moving in a focused direction forward.

What can I expect from the horses?
Horses are keenly aware of emotional energies. They can sense emotions that lurk beneath the surface of our awareness. They will help us ground while holding space for us. Allowing us to tap into our inner selves during the meditation, opening another opportunity for self discovery.

The horses will be in a small field surrounding our meditation space. We will have a half hour to walk among them or stop and work with one of them. Afterwards we will head into a guided meditation with the horses just outside our space.

There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man. ~Winston Churchill

TBA life purpose
This month’s theme is life purpose. Life purpose is a complex thing and often it can feel like we are lost in the weeds. During our guided meditation we will be asking Arch Angel Michael and Raphael to show us what the next steps in our purposeful journey are.

 TBA Harvest time
August signals the beginning of harvest time. Harvest is symbolic of gathering your resources and preparing for winter. This month we will focus on the goals you have for the next 6 months. In our meditation we will ask Arch Angel Michael to clear the way for us to achieve our goals, so we may have a bountiful harvest!

TBA Clearing and Connecting
September is the last meditation in the series. This month we will focus on clearing our mind of insecurities or negativity that may be standing in our way. With the help of Arch Angel Michael, we will release them and clearly connect with the future where our goals have been achieved and we are living our most bountiful purpose filled life.

 

EFW Horsemanship Workshop

At Whispering Equine we hold the concept of horses being sentient beings, in high regard and base a lot of our teachings from that. One dictionary definition of sentient is; having the conscious power of perception by the senses. But what does that really mean and how does that apply to horses? To us, it means that horses experience feelings and emotions based on what they perceive and interpret from their herd members, their environment and the humans they are partnering with. As horses cannot communicate their thoughts and feelings verbally through  "human talk", we as horsemen must learn and find different ways to listen to and interpret what the horses are attempting to express to us. By doing this, we open ourselves up to a whole new way of interacting, caring for and growing with our equine companions and partners.

During this 1 day workshop, we will explore various areas to help you improve your ability to listen to, understand and connect with horses. Below are a few topics we will cover:

  • Introduce the concept and importance of being grounded  and in the present moment, before interacting with a single horse or a herd of horses (especially as a rider or facilitator)
  • Learn ways to detect your current state and how to become grounded and in the moment
  • Introduce awareness of appropriate ways to approach, catch, lead and handle horses in a safe manner (ie. while in a field among other horses, going through gates, walking to and from different areas and in the barn/arena)
  • Explore how horses communicate to each other and humans
  • Introduce ways we can receive information from the horses
  • Herd dynamic analysis and awareness
  • The importance and benefit of "knowing" your horses(s)
  • Various horse personalities and why it is important to know them for yourself and/or clients
  • Importance of setting clear boundaries while being mindful of the horse, human and situation
  • Recognizing various signs of stress/tension in a horse
  • Discuss, introduce and practice ways to help a horse release stress/tension (may include Acupressure, Ttouch and Masterson Method Massage techniques)
  • Introduction to pre-liberty training and other forms of ground work activities to build on your existing skill set and improve the connection and communication between you and your  horse

Dates:                  April 4, 2020 (10-4pm)

Investment:         180.00 +gst

Day Retreats 

Discovering Your Authentic Self Through Horse and Yoga

Experience a day in nature and with horses combining mindfulness, yoga, and equine facilitated learning to connect to your authentic self. 

Our authentic self is always with us. We sometimes just stop hearing it because we are busy focusing outside of ourselves. When we make the time to be present with ourselves the truth emerges. Horses, yoga and mindfulness cultivate presence which allows your authentic self to emerge into your consciousness. 

The workshop will include gentle, mindful yoga sessions with Meghan Vornholt to open up the body, focus the mind, and get you in touch with your authentice self. Carrie and her herd of horse will guide equine facilitated learning sessions to deepen your awareness and connection to your inner self. We will also do a take home craft as a reminder of your experience and learning. 

Please bring
- a lunch that will nurture your individual needs
-closed toe footwear (no sandals please)
-comfortable, weather appropriate clothing
-water bottle
-yoga mat

All levels of yoga and horse experience welcome.

NEW- Level 2 Pendulum 


Join us to deepen your understanding and use of your pendulum and muscle testing tools already learned in the Level 1 class. During our time together we will review the introduction material and give you some practice time to feel connected with it all again. We will also look at how imbalances in the various body chakras, identified using the pendulum and muscles testing, can be used to help bring awareness to what aspects of ourselves, others or our pets (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) may need support and what the various options of support could be. By identifying and eventually addressing the "blocked layers" of the chakra, one will start to find relief and clarity in various areas of their lives. The body knows what it needs to heal and stay balanced, we just need to find a way to tune into that...and the pendulum is a great way to do that!! We will also look to introduce you to some of the spirit guides you have supporting you at this time. The pendulum is a helpful tool to be able to connect with your higher self and your various spirit guides to find guidance from them.
