Navigating Loss and Grief with the Power of Horses and Nature
Dates: Feb. 28 – April 18, 2023
Time: Tuesdays, 4–6pm
Where: Directions given upon registration
Loss comes in many forms.
From small disappointments, and transitions we face, to the traumatic losses in our lives. These experiences can compound over years. This can create turmoil in our lives if left un-processed.
- Through the process of working in a group outside in nature, with horses as our guides, we will develop a greater sense of awareness of our body, mind and spiritual responses to the losses we have experienced.
- We will explore the recent research on grief and loss and the neuroscience behind this topic.
- We will explore how our personal history impacts our ability to process and cope with these experiences.
I joined Jackie’s group after the loss of my beloved sister to cancer. The group allowed me to process through my grief in my own way, in my own time. Being outside in Nature, with the powerful intuition of the horses, some art and writing prompts, I experienced compassion and kindness towards myself. Being in a group with others grieving, allowed for deep acceptance and a safe place to express all that erupted in our hearts. — Anonymous
