Equine Facilitated Mindfulness – We are Up and Running!

Posted By Brendon Abram on Jun 3, 2021 | 0 comments


I am once again running sessions with the horses! So wherever you left off you are welcome to come back and “pick up the reins” again.

If you haven’t experienced mindfulness with horses yet please come give it a try. The first session is free. For more info about the program please visit Program Overview

For essential workers who had already started the program before the latest lockdown you are welcome to complete the seven sessions at no cost.

I also have some other events planned over the course of the summer and fall that you may be interested in and are described below.

Sunday July 25th – Nature Walk with Horses

Join us for a 2 to 3 hour interpretive nature hike and meditation. This a great opportunity to see and hear nature from the perspective of a horse. Horses are always connected to the natural world. By observing their behaviour as we hike through forest and field you will develop a new appreciation of the world around you. About half-way through the hike we will stop for a 20 minute meditation. Throughout the walk you will have an opportunity to learn about this area’s flora and fauna from a local naturalist.

Cost is $30 per person. Maximum group size is 5. To register please call or text Brendon at 613-438-9642.

August Date TBA – Monarch Meadow Magic

We are so fortunate to have a milkweed meadow on our property. Over the years it has become a favourite breeding site for monarch butterflies. One August day last year I rode Delta into the meadow and was privileged to observe hundreds of monarch butterflies. It was really quite magical. I am hoping that it will be the same this year and that I will be able to share this amazing experience with anyone who is interested. The eruption seems to last for only a few days so if you would like a chance to see it please register and I will give you a call when it starts to happen.

Cost is $30 per person. Maximum group size is 5. To register please call or text Brendon at 613-438-9642.

Saturday/Sunday September 17/18 – Camping with Horses

On Saturday afternoon we will take about an hour hike to head to the horse camping area. After setting up camp you will have an opportunity to do yoga with (in the presence of) the horses and time to explore the trails on the property or to simply hang out and relax. The evening will see supper cooked over open flame followed by some campfire companionship. Maybe even a ghost story or two:) Sunday morning will start with yoga and meditation followed by breakfast. For those who are interested I will teach you how to do a few yoga poses you can do with the horses – helping them stretch out as well before we hike back down the hill.

Cost is $100 per person. Maximum group size is 5. To register please call or text Brendon at 613-438-9642.
