Shadow Work Through the Way of the Horse and Nature

  • Badger Creek Ranch, LLC 5795 COUNTY ROAD 2 CANON CITY United States (map)

This retreat for men and women, offered by Full Circle Alliance (formerly Full Circle Farm Growth & Healing Center), is a unique personal growth opportunity in the majestic setting of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. You can honor your true self by bringing it into the light with all your gifts and strengths in a safe, experiential, natural setting. Our time together is a blend of teaching and experiential learning with horses and nature (all time with the horses is ground work and involves no riding – no horse experience is necessary to participate).

The gifts of Shadow Work®…

  • Connect to your life’s purpose, step into leadership, step into the power to bless and support yourself and others, increase ability to make powerful choices. The direction of the sovereign with esteem and positivity.

  • Open up to emotions, deeper capacity to love and let love in, claim creativity, listen to the wisdom of our bodies.  The direction of the lover with openness.

  • Gain perspective, find solutions to problems, understand patterns in your life and transform them, and learn about your relationship with trust. The direction of the magician with awareness.

  • Set and hold healthy boundaries, achieve goals, be in service to self, confidence and power. The direction of the warrior with truth and courage.
