True Nature Equine Journey and Wellness Retreat

Perhaps this was put into motion all the way back to my childhood connection and love of nature, horses and all animals.  One could say it was in the cards as a message from my ancestry. You may say it all began after one hell of a year filled with love and tragedy,  a magical trip to Sedona, and one strong push, or slap, from the universe! However this came to be, my wife, Marie,  and I made a decision to escape the buzz of the city and make a move back to nature and move toward our authentic self in hopes of creating a healing space for all beings. We have a combined background in Psychotherapy/Psychology, Physical Therapy, Bodywork and Chinese Medicine and strive to use all of our gifts to create our home business and dream. This past year we found the location and home and now we need to cultivate the land and this is where we need your help.

Our dream is to transform this magical space into a wellness retreat. A safe place for soul connection, decompression, and creativity. A place free of judgment, free of division, full of love and acceptance for all beings.   We are busy working on additional licensing, certifications, and expanding our healing practices to include Equine facilitated learning and psychotherapy, Yoga, Goat yoga, Meditation, Reiki, Shiatsu, Chinese Medicine, Mind Body Therapies, and more. At this time we are not taking any business loans but are looking to use a lot of DIY energy and seek support through crowdfunding. We can not begin to express our excitement about this journey and our gratitude to everyone who has lent an ear and sent positive energy toward this dream. We will be giving updates, and donor incentives as we go and hope you will share in our stories and adventures along the way!! Also stay tuned for events and adventures to begin this Summer!

(The Front of the land where pastures, barn and horses will roam)

Your donations will help to fund costs related to:

- Clearing and beautifying the land
- Building a barn to prepare for our small herd of  horses
- Assisting with tuition to an Eponaquest apprenticeship in Equine Facilitated Therapy
- Finishing the Yoga Barn/Studio, including insulation, HVAC, building treatment rooms
- Building a Labyrinth 
- Finishing the tiny home and more...

What is Epona? Equine Therapy? 

What is Zen Shiatsu?

In Gratitude,

Jenn and Marie
