At the remote and beautiful 1000-acre Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary, participants partner with Spanish and American Mustangs to clarify and create lives of passion, purpose and value. Horsewomen Adventures invite women to access their deepest longings and offer practical skills for bringing these dreams to fruition. Activities include deep listening exercises in the presence of other women, interacting with wild horses in their natural habitats, hands-on natural horsewomanship training with mustangs, and yoga in the natural world. Each workshop builds on the themes of the previous group, but is also appropriate to be done as a stand-alone experience. 

Themes include:

  • Leaving your "shoulds" behind
  • Finding your river
  • Living inside your value system
  • Attracting your tribe
  • Re-entering the world
