Saturday Morning Grief Circle

We welcome the opportunity to share Saturday mornings with you in a space of healing and connection. While our focus is on grief and bereavement in all its forms – because to be human is to know grief and sorrow – please know that all are welcome to join this circle if it calls to you with whatever is on your heart. This group is intended for individuals who are ready to step up and dive deep into personal work. As is true with most of our groups, some days you will sit in support of others and absorb the borrowed benefit from their individual work. Other weeks you will get to sit as the client as the group supports you in exploration and transformation. It’s our job as your guides to create safe, sacred space and truly nurture your body, heart and mind as you open more and more to the truths that are awaiting your discovery – all alongside the naturally healing presence of our horses.

Co-led with Bobbie Harte Shaw.

Unburden Your Spirit (Full)

This one day healing intensive is for anyone experiencing grief, loss, or disconnection to daily joy. Led by Nelle Rogers + Bobbie Harte Shaw, Unburden Your Spirit is a place to explore the vulnerable parts that make you uniquely you. We are often so far from surrounding our shadow selves with love that we deny ourselves the greatest gift of being human in this moment. And that’s okay! We believe that with the right partnership and guidance anything is possible … no matter how distant that may seem for where you are on your journey. Choosing change begins with one step. We are honored to be alongside you as your guides and promise to lead from love, non-judgment, and with truly open hearts and minds.

Magic Mondays at Imagine Farms

We invite you to come to the barn and experience the Magic of Seahorse Healing Monday nights in August. We will explore healing through the experiential Gestalt process as well as the Art of Horsemanship. We strongly believe that Healing and Horsemanship go Hand in Hand – both are windows to growth and unexpected possibility. Both have profound impacts on our internal and external worlds as the lessons we integrate ripple out and out in other areas of our lives. 

Mondays in August | 6pm-8pm

Imagine Farms | Belleville, Wisconsin

Cancer Support Group w Horses

A weekly group for anyone affected by cancer – as a patient past or present, as a caregiver or family member, as a friend or partner. We will meet weekly throughout the summer season to share, explore, and support one another in a nurturing, safe environment alongside horses.

The gestalt process allows for an organic experience for each group member. We will follow the natural flow and needs of each individual as well as the group as a whole. Some weeks you will sit as a client and dive deep into your own life’s journey and needs. Other weeks you will sit as a supportive group member while someone else takes the client chair.

We will allow members to “drop in” from week to week, meaning that you don’t have to commit to the entire season. However, we will need you to register weekly so that we know how many people to expect and to make sure we don’t exceed our limited capacity.

Wednesdays 6pm-9pm

Magic and I were planning to attend this event, however it has grown to over 250 participants – very exciting!! We have decided that this busy environment may not be the best for Magic so he will be staying home, and I will be there volunteering instead.
