Trust: An Interactive Exploration with the Trailblazers Herd

Date of Event: November 25, 2023

Event Description :

What if the way forward is through vulnerability and courage?

We believe that people are what change the world, and the world is worth changing. There’s never been a better time to go inward and wholeheartedly reconnect to the truth of why we are here. To stand grounded and strong, and guide ourselves down the path we know is right for us.

The wisdom horses offer is a reflection of who you are without the filter of your stories and negative self talk. Their lack of ego is a true gift to anyone wishing to grow personally and professionally.

This unique opportunity is another chance to experience Jodine and Margarita alongside the Trailblazers Herd with an offering to vulnerably explore your truth and learn more about how trusting your inner guidance can connect you to a source of courage that opens a world of possibilities. Join like-minded individuals from different walks of life to learn, create, and share in a magical space.

Winter Wellness Workshops 2023: Donkeys & Creativity

Date of Event: on-going

Event Description :

Imagine this: you are in a charming art studio, warm fire in the wood stove, cup of tea. You are learning a new skill, perhaps it’s simple printmaking, the pages folded into tiny books, perhaps you are making a length of plied rope from long leaves harvested from the Fall garden. Maybe you are coming up with ideas for a daily practice, something that you can use to focus and get your creative thoughts flowing during the months ahead.

Later, you share space with four gentle and wise donkeys in the comfort of their sweet barn, learning their ways, allowing them to help you connect with yourself. And you sit in quiet contemplation up in the snug hay loft, perhaps with a poem or a tongue drum or a notebook.

These are three spaces, protected from blustery weather, where you can renew, breathe, and feel possible in these uncertain times.

If you can get here through rain and wind and snow, we are here and offer Winter Wellness Workshops on Denman Island. 1.5 hours for individuals, age 16 and older.

Longer sessions for small groups and individuals are also available, weather permitting.
