AN UNFORGETTABLE CANVAS

Tap into your creative spirit by using the side of a horse (that’s right, a horse!) as your canvas. We use a living canvas to remind us to stay present and grounded in our storytelling. Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, and bring a hat, sunscreen, and water bottle. Note that this can be a messy experience. $

MIRAVAL EQUINE EXPERIENCE™

Work alongside our specially selected horses and our expert facilitators to practice living life in the moment. Horses are creatures of the present, unconcerned with past regrets or future dreams. They offer a way to help us notice personal patterns that could be restrictive in this exercise and in life. Note that this is not a riding class. $

JOURNEY TO SELF

The Journey to Self is an archetypal story pattern in which a hero goes on an adventure, faces trials and temptation, grapples with a crisis, and undergoes a transformation in consciousness before returning home. Guided by our trained equine specialists, walk horses through a series of obstacles that represent challenges and triumphs from your life. Reframe your experience and become the hero of your own journey. $

Common Ground: Self-Leadership for Effective Communication

Experience the powerful dynamics of non-verbal communication and how this influences your ability to lead yourself and others. In this unmounted activity, you will move with a horse around the pen, engaging tools of communication, collaboration, and creativity without speaking or touching. The insights and skills you discover may apply equally to personal and professional relationships. $
