About the event
This retreat uniquely blends the somatic healing practice of Equine Gestalt and Herbal Wisdom for an experience that is sure to nourish your soul and awaken your spirit.
If you find yourself craving an adventure, reconnecting to nature, and riding horses through one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in North America...Come join Us at Zapata Ranch for an unforgettable experience!
Zapata Ranch is a breathtaking oasis in the San Luis Valley where you can experience the healing power of Nature, Horses and Community. This remote destination offers a one of a kind retreat experience. Set in a cottonwood grove beneath the back drop of the 14,000ft Sangre de Cristo Mountains, it is a spectacular setting to dive deeply into the restorative power this beautiful land. The ranch is home to Elk, Mule Deer, Migratory birds, Eagles, a resident Buffalo herd and is also a working Cattle ranch.
Your Ranch experience will include chef inspired breakfasts, saddlebag packed lunches, Gourmet dinners under the cottonwoods, quaint accommodations with private baths and once in a lifetime riding experiences in Great Sand Dune National Park, the Medano and Zapata lands.
Each day we will join together in community to experience the healing power of Equine Gestalt Coaching, forage for native plants & flowers, learn the art of wildcrafting and the restorative practices of herbal healing. And, of course... ride amazing horses!!! There will be personal time to hike, read, reflect and soak in a tub too. Nights around a bonfire will close out each glorious day and send you off to a night of dreams under a starry sky.
Gestalt and Herbal Wisdom:
In this retreat you will explore the somatic experience of Equine Gestalt which offers transformational awareness and healing in addition to deepening your connection to nature, horses and community. Gestalt brings us into the present moment to explore how we show up in the world. Horses are the intuitive guides that help us to gain awareness and free ourselves from the feeling of being stuck, stressed out or unable to reach our true potential.
Herbal healing offers us a renewed approach to connecting with our bodies while awakening an ancient wisdom that lives inside all of us. The creation and use of herbal teas, smudge bundles, balms and elixirs resets the nervous system and enlivens all the senses.
Joining together Gestalt and Herbal Wisdom is a beautiful way to honor our mind, body & spirit.
In addition, time spent with horses encourages us to become more connected to our bodies, the world around us and to nature. By fostering these relationships we learn to live in sync with nature and trust our wild instincts, intuition and resourcefullness.
