Mindfulness is the ability to pay attention to the present moment without judgement. In this one day retreat, we will begin to demystify "mindfulness" and allow you to re-energize mind, body, and soul in the beauty and serenity of Indigo Trails. Come explore what it is, how you practice Mindfulness and what are the real benefits to you - in terms of well-being, stress reduction, changing your relationship to the world and transforming existing relationships. Experience first hand a sampling of a couple mindfulness practices that you can take home and implement into your daily life. Not only will you find yourself re-awakened, you will find that you go back to your daily routine with a new vision and a new inner energy.

Nourish Your Soul is a monthly opportunity to come out to the farm for an evening of experiential learning that may include gong and chakra balancing, chakra bowls, meditation, inspired conversation around the bonfire, and anything else that seems like the right fit for the moment ~ some nights we will explore gestalt work with the horses! This night is meant to be fluid and open to whatever activities seem appropriate for the individuals and the group, allowing for deep exploration of the self and others while building community in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
Whether howling at the moon or sitting in quiet meditation to soothing music, this night promises to bring healing and nourishment to your body and spirit. Come play with us, with the land and the horses!
Nourish Your Soul is limited to a small group of women each month. We expect these sessions to fill and encourage you to register early! Registration is $35 per person and includes two hours of deep group work, sharing, and support.
*Please dress according to the weather as we will meet in the unheated indoor arena*

Join us in the lounge for an evening of conversation around our health topic of the month where you will nourish your mind, body, and spirit while challenging your traditionally accepted beliefs around food and health. An evening of education and fun, come learn about what we do and why the doctor is "on the farm now". For the month of April we will be talking about our Nervous System and why we want it functioning optimally and what happens when it is not.
Both men and women are welcome to attend and explore the health benefits of these monthly topics. Healthy appetizers and drinks are provided. Please register in advance to save your spot. We look forward to spending an inspiring, informative night on the farm with you!

Friday: Private One Hour Lessons (Limit 6 Participants)
Saturday & Sunday: Groundwork & Riding Clinic (Limit 10 Participants)
Ariana's intention is that the mentorship she offers helps you to continually develop your best self and a partnership with your horse that forever grows. By promoting ways to better understand animals and the relationships we have with them, she strives to inspire others respect, understand, and be an influential voice for the animals we share this world with.
While she initially had hopes and dreams of becoming an international rider, a question she asked herself one day would be the turning point in the focus of her career. She asked herself, “Even if I win all the blue ribbons in the world, when I dismount my horse and take off the saddle and bridle, does my horse still want to be with me?” She knew that if the answer to that question was no, then it didn’t matter how many ribbons or accomplishments she had; it would be a failure in the eyes of the horse looking right at her. Out of this simple question came a dedication to learn and continually improve upon obtaining a true connection with a horse, one that’s not bound by just ropes or tack.

6:00pm - 9:00pmThe mother daughter relationship is a complicated one. It can be fraught with tension, resentment, and guilt and yet it can be our most important supportive secure relationship that we have throughout our lifetime. Learning to navigate this all important relationship with love and compassion is crucial. During the teen years and early adulthood, our daughters are moving toward independence and learning to become their own leader. This can be difficult for us as moms because we have been the “lead” mare for their entire lives up to this point. How do we let go and let them learn to lead their own lives without sabotaging the relationship and our connection? I call this the dance of leadership and followership and it can be a tricky one. Horses can be amazing mentors and teachers for us. As herd animals their survival depends on their connection to the herd and their trust in the herd leader. They lead and follow because they choose to. In the horsemanship world we have a saying that “when the halter comes off, the truth comes out”. As a parent it can be scary to take that “halter” off of our children to let them grow and become their own leader. Through temperament type, mandala work, and experiential work with the horses this 4 week series for mothers and daughters is designed to experience and practice 7 Elemental Steps to opening the door to a healthier and stronger relationship with one of the most important persons in your life. Requested Age ~ 12 and older What to Wear We will be working in both the heated lounge and when we work with the horses we will be in the arena which is enclosed but takes on the outside temperatures. Please dress in layers so you will be comfortable. You will also need closed toed shoes. Event Details Monday, May 6th 6:00-9:00pm Monday, May 13th 6:00-9:00pm Monday, May 20th 6:00-9:00pm Monday, June 3rd 6:00-9:00pm Investment In You & Your Daughter is $250/person ($500 per mother/daughter team) Limit of 12 attendees (or 6 Mother/Daughter teams) Requested Age ~ 12 and older

9:00am to 3:00pm dailySummer on the Farm Camps offer kids a way to be in the world with humans and horses, dogs, chickens, the earth and sky, and everything natural. Based on a beautiful little farm in Verona, WI, this summer camp promises to take campers on a journey of self-discovery. They will learn to care for the animals and the land, learn about gardening, go hiking, do art projects, tell stories, learn ground activities with horses and much, much more! This is not a riding camp, and no horse experience is necessary. In Session 2 we will go a little deeper with the older kids with A Hero's Journey. We will be teaching about feelings and how to communicate effectively, building trust and self-esteem, and contact with the horses offers loving support and how to be in the moment. The result is unequivocally that which inspires the participant to believe in themselves and discover their very own Hero within.
NEXT SESSION BEGINS APRIL - SEPTEMBER 2019
REGISTER NOWThis six month program is an opportunity for you to make lasting changes in your health while connecting with others in the community and taking time for you! It is my intention through this six month program to not only empower you around the inner workings of your body - partly so that your choices reflect self care more easily - but to support you in creating a relationship with food that fosters true nourishment – body, mind, and soul.Because this course is teaching the WHY & HOW, as well as the FEEL, you will be inspired to implement a new way of living, which for some may mean a new way of thinking about health, energy, food, and weight loss. I want to help you deeply embrace a new lifestyle and part of that means creating new rituals, priorities, beliefs, as well as meals, and this will take time. We will explore:
- the systems of the body that impact your health and vitality
- the nutrients that support these systems
- the emotional landscape of why we do the things we do when we know the things we know
- the creation of new rituals, priorities, beliefs, as well as meals
