Chiron’s Way: Lessons and Gifts from the Wounded Healer

September 18-19, 2021

The teachings from the mythological centaur Chiron, known as the wounded healer, are perhaps more timely than ever, given what we are currently experiencing as, what he might call, a collective wound. In this beautiful experiential weekend, Dr. Sharon Forrest along with Sandra Wallin and the Chiron’s Way herd, invite you to journey with them into the Healing Sanctuary of the Centaur’s Cave to… 
  • mine the wisdom in the depths of our wounds,
  • find beauty in the places we’ve been broken,
  • discover the purpose of the bumps and jostles we’ve encountered while making our way in the world,
  • embody peace and serenity while in the company of horses
  • create a healing-horse talisman to take with you on your journey
By working through and finding these strengths, every life we touch benefits by example. This is true heroism and one of the wounded healer’s greatest gifts.

Past Events 

Heart Centered Horsemanship

This two-day workshop explores the horse-human partnership in therapeutic and learning environments. Through experiential exercises and thoughtful discussion, we seek to understand the evolving power dynamics within this relationship. What does it mean to co-teach with a 1000lb sentient being? How is it for horses to work as equals with those that historically have considered them solely as tools of the trade? Core topics include: ethical standards, safety, boundaries, leadership, communication, and authentic representation of our equine partners—how do we provide them with a voice that speaks to their physical, emotional, and mental needs?

Hosted by Carla Webb, Abbotsford BC
