Creative Souls

Igniting Your Creative Intent: Artists, Writers and Other Creative Souls


Sculpture by Jane Garland

Is it time to do a check in on your creative journey? Perhaps even give it a jump start? Here’s an  opportunity to get in touch with your creative spirit while  levering the power and wisdom of horses to think out of the box.

Ignite your creative intent and connect to possibility with the power of the horse – exploring what’s possible in this unique, experiential one-day workshop. Together with other creative souls, you will:

  • Learn practical techniques to ignite your creativity, imagination and creative thinking
  • Take a journey with a horse partner to address creative blocks and make peace with your inner critic
  • Find new sources of inspiration — take a walk through the labyrinth and perennial gardens
  • Create a Mandala of Taming the Dragon — identifying steps to “tame” your dragon, setting yourself free from limitations that are keeping you from being your best creative self
  • Participate in a guided drumming journey. Guiding us to the spirit world to seek deeper understanding and connection, this guided drum journey will awaken your power animal. This is the animal that is most like you in naturalness: an ally, teacher, and spirit guide that walks with you on your life path. Knowing and working with your power animal can help you connect more deeply with the power, purpose and creative impulses of your spirit.

All of the exercises with the horses are done on the ground. No horse experience is necessary. Expressive arts will also be used to encourage creativity and self-expression.
