One thing that is so amazing about Laurie is how skilled she is at holding space for people’s stuff to come up, without judgment. And to help them have a better understanding of what’s going on inside them without interpreting it…It’s powerful work that she has committed her life to and she’s giving to other people in such a way that’s life-changing. — Stephanie Lee, artist, writer, and entrepreneur

I wrote this blog post about the benefits of retreating. There are countless others, but it’s a good start. One of the best parts is that you are taking time away from “real life” for you. To put yourself first. To recharge your batteries. And go back to your real life with an improved mental state that shows on your face! ($20 off the price of this retreat if you know that movie reference!)

{It WILL knock your socks off!}

Everyday Extraordinary!

The Interactive Equine Workshop part of this retreat is SUCH a unique experience. It’s an amazing opportunity to work with horses in this way. If you’ve ever been curious about or drawn to horse work, this is your chance.  It’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced before! And the opportunity to do it in this small group retreat setting is unmatched. Anywhere.

The Horse Workshop was incredibly surprising to me.  I wasn’t quite sure how hanging out with horses would ‘work’ you know? But I had an immediate and deeply profound experience. I was able to access a hurt that was so old I didn’t even really know it was there – and Roco (the horse) was absolutely the conduit to finding that and to beginning to heal. Its been a few months since the retreat and I have carried that healing home with me – there are echoes of it in how I relate to my husband, my business and most importantly how I feel about the future. It’s absolutely changed my DNA.” —Sas Petherick, life coach and writer


So, What is Interactive Equine Coaching Anyway?

I’m so glad you asked!  Equine work is about the energy we bring to the horses that they, as limbic beings, react to. That reaction and our reaction to it teaches us so much about ourselves. You’ll walk among the herd (NO RIDING!!!). And we’ll do some activities. And you’ll uncover deep truths that will change the way you live your life. Simple. And profound.

Here’s an FAQ video to help with some of the basics about the horse work.

The things that came up through the {Equine} Workshop were absolutely life-changing. I really felt like I had come to a point in my life where I had plateaued; where I had made a lot of changes, a lot of forward progress, but I really felt like I was spinning my wheels. By the end of the retreat I had had a major breakthrough. My entire body had relaxed and one of the things that I had desperately needed and didn’t even know I needed, was to relax. Not “sit by the pool and sip a Mai Tai” relax, but to offer myself Grace and practice true self-care in order to relax my soul, to relax by body, to unclench, to really melt into the moment…— Kimberly Kalil, graphic designer and  writer

Benefits of Working with Horses

You’ll walk away from the workshop with a deeper understanding of who you are. You’ll get why you move the way you do in the world. Your hidden assumptions and reactions that get in your way, brought to the surface.

You’ll recognize the stories you’ve created in your mind that aren’t serving you. And you’ll learn how to let them go. You may develop problem-solving skills and improve your confidence. You’ll quickly learn about boundaries and see what healthy ones look like. You’ll also learn to stay in the present moment and be in your body.

The horses are the most amazing teachers. And that, combined with the wisdom of your own body = magic. The experience is as unique as you are. It will be whatever it is that you need. Guaranteed.

I was VERY surprised by how powerful it was. Having been around horses most of my life, I wasn’t sure that I would learn much. I thought it was about horse behavior according to my emotions – and it was a little bit. But it was so much more than that. It was an incredibly illuminating experience of the energy of the horses and the amazing guidance and insight of Sherry that opened new doors into my awareness of the stories I’ve created that keep me in my own way. —Stephanie Lee


I loved the ease of the schedule and the guidance we received that was SO much more than common platitudes and feel good ideas.  I loved how Laurie had some very clear ideas of what we would explore but was amazing at adjusting according to the energy of the group. We were able to go where each of us really needed to go in our hearts—Stephanie Lee

I ask all my clients before our first session what they are willing to do to make changes in their lives. And they always reply, “Anything! As long as it’s legal!” Or something to that effect…I’m asking you the same thing – what’s it worth to you to make the changes you want to make in your life? What are you willing to do, or give up, to transform your life? To take some time for yourself away from the pressures of daily life and do something beautiful and magical for yourself? What is it worth to you and your family to return to them a more refreshed version of yourself?
