Living Fully with Intent


Living Fully With Intent: 2-day Women’s Workshop

Women's Programs Many women today are seeking ways to live life fully with intent. If you are like most women, you spend your days fulfilling commitments and juggling multiple roles, galloping between everyone else’s needs and your own. Whether you are between jobs, between kids, in transition or seeking life’s next adventure, this workshop is designed to help you blend together instinct, intuition and intellect to discover what’s possible and to live courageously with passion and purpose. Participants will have an opportunity to:

  • Be clear on your life passion and purpose
  • Identify any beliefs, attitudes or emotions that may be limiting achievement of your main intent
  • Use emotions as information for greater self-awareness
  • Move forward, connecting to possibility through horse power
  • Benefit from a community of like-minded women

This two-day workshop will bring you together with horses in a fun, safe and unique experience. All of the exercises are done on the ground. No horse experience is necessary. You will also have access to beautiful Renegade Ridge Farm. This beautiful 80+ acre property features a historic farm house, the original log cabin, century barns, and an indoor 9100 sq. ft. arena for equine work. The property includes 20 acres of sugar bush with trails, a hidden meadow, natural wet lands, large perennial gardens. The farm boasts a growing herd of healing horses, a few goats, donkeys, cows, dogs, cats and other creatures.

The farm is located in Otonabee Township near Rice Lake just 90 minutes north east of the Greater Toronto Area. Accommodation is available in area resorts and cottages.
