BREATH and HORSES - Transformational Retreat

LISTING > Breathwork, Animal Healing Retreat in Hermanus & Caledon

Combining the life-changing modality of Transformational Breath® with the powerful insights that horses provide to raise human consciousness, this retreat focuses on transformation in an expansive yet private natural setting. We offer you delicious organic home-made food from our farm and a rich program with meditation, body awareness, Transformational Breath®, horse facilitated transformational coaching, and a Sacred Soul Journey. All of which will enable you to connect to your powerful and wise Self, your personal Spirit Guides and to the ever available Source.

In addition to this program we offer the opportunity to book private sessions with Josie (Transformational Breath®, Reconnective Healing® and Enneagram-coaching), Kirsten (horse facilitated coaching) and Shelley (Sacred Soul card readings). We also invite you for a horse ride exploring beautiful fynbos trails. The optional outing on Monday 20th August to Platbos Forest and De Kelders coastal nature reserve will give you the beauty and sacred space to assimilate all you’ve experienced and to re-enter your life with ease.

Transformational Breath® is a practical tool that carries us to all levels of consciousness. As a state of the art healing and regenerative process, Transformational Breath® utilises a specific breathing pattern that clears past repressed traumas, revitalises the physical, and transforms emotional and mental traumas on the cellular level. Maximum physical and emotional benefits along with expanded states of awareness are the natural products of increased oxygenation that Transformational Breath® brings. The way we breathe, is the way we live.

Josie is a sparkling woman with a huge love for people. Her background in the business world, combined with her knowledge and experience of the healing arts, make her a solid facilitator of awareness, who directly confronts you with your potential. Due to her joyous radiance and earthly humour you will feel at ease immediately. Apart from Transformational Breath®, Josie is also trained in The Reconnection®, Massage Therapy, and the Enneagram. Her talent however is to BE with who and what is; guiding you to a level of self-realisation at your own pace.

Facilitation with Horses: Horses are highly sensitive beings, sensing and responding with their guts and hearts. From a distance, they are aware of the emotion and energy that others carry. Their response reflects back to us how we are at that moment. Often we are not aware of this ourselves. Working with horses brings deep self-realisations and the opportunity to practice change. Are you ready to be seen and to really see?

Kirsten loves to catalyse AH HAH moments that reveal to you your integrity and passion. In a beautiful and safe outdoor context, Kirsten and her 7 horses will welcome you into the herd to explore your chosen intention. Be prepared for spontaneous behaviour that may deepen your insight and give your heart and soul the courage to realise your intention.

Laughing Waters Farm: Experience the peace of this beautiful fynbos flower farm encircled by mountains, with a river running through. Enjoy nature, star-lit nights, interactions with our friendly herd of horses, walking, swimming in spring-fed farm dams and guided experiences of the area. Enjoy our lovely farm cottage accommodation and private Laughing Under the Oaks venue.
