Jenn Cohen Harper with a Horse

Rest and reset, in the company of horses on their own healing path, with mindfulness teacher Jennifer Cohen Harper and the team at 13 Hands Equine Rescue.

Jennifer Cohen Harper describes the healing power of working with horses at 13 Hands Equine Rescue.

Today's world can be overwhelming, and it's easy to become disconnected from ourselves, from nature, and from each other. Horses live fully in the present moment, and spending time with them can help us slow down and reconnect with our capacity for mindful awareness and personal power.

In this retreat you'll learn mindfulness based practices, supported by the grounding of horses, that help us reconnect, cultivate compassion for ourselves and others, and build the courage to step fully into our lives with power and authenticity.

During your time at the 13 Hands Equine Rescue, Jennifer Cohen Harper guides you to connect with horses using your body language, breath, energy, and intention. Learn to:

  • Exchange greetings and convey that you mean no harm
  • Ask for space without creating fear or disconnection
  • Groom a horse to create comfort and connection
  • Move quietly through the herd without disturbing the horses
  • Support a horse that is uncomfortable or scared
  • Invite a horse to walk and/or rest with you

We'll also spend time on Omega's campus, where Jenn leads a combination of mindfulness practices, movement, journaling, and group discussion. We'll expand on the discoveries made at the rescue and set intentions for the next day.

Together we'll explore a way of being in the world that is deeply healing, that connects us to our own body and breath, and to each other.

Head home with a greater awareness of the energy you want to bring into your daily life, and your relationships, and with practices to support creating it (with or without horses).
