“Careers are a jungle gym, not a ladder”
– Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook
Our Women’s retreats are designed specifically for groups of women within organisations. For example, to support those re-entering the workplace after any prolonged break including maternity or carers leave. Workshops boost confidence and empower participants. Contents can be tailored to the needs of different groups, with a focus on skills such as communication, assertiveness, teamwork and inclusion in a neutral, non-threatening environment.
Horses respond in an honest, non-judgemental and immediate way to the stimulus around them. When we work in small groups with the horses in our programs, they respond to not only our actions, but our underlying feelings and intentions. They provide incredible learning opportunities and we can learn from them in such a way that involves us physically, emotionally and mentally. Often we are not aware of how we appear to others. If we are willing to accept how a horse reacts to us, we can learn so much about ourselves and how to better understand and communicate with others.
Our programs assist in developing:
- Improved decision making
- Stronger communication skills
- Professional and personal goal-setting
- Greater personal accountability
- More self-awareness
- Greater personal understanding
- Trust in one’s self and others
- Emotional, physical, mental and spiritual wellness
- Reduced anxiety
