Spring and Summer 2014

Spring - A Season of Change  

It's been a long and cold winter in much of the country. For what feels like far too long, the world around us has appeared lifeless, with many people hibernating indoors, perhaps feeling listless and empty.  And yet, spring is on our doorstep with green leaves and grass soon to re-emerge from winter's dry brown twigs and snow cover.

Spring IS the season of change and it can also be a time for transition - letting go of the old relationship, situation, event, or behavior that's no longer working and starting a new beginning.  Much like the first daffodils emerging from the ground, transitions from what is to what can be, may fill you with eager anticipation.  But all too often the question becomes how do I start or 'spring forward'?  Or perhaps what keeps me stuck?  

During 2014 - the Year of the Horse - we invite you to explore what a profound change horses can make in your life as you answer the internal call for change, The horse's gentle, non-judgmental nature may be just want you need to move beyond where you are now and to do it with confidence.  Their intuitiveness, together with your own body's wisdom, will help reveal the things that get in your way. As the leaves bud and flowers bloom, you too will find renewed energy to make a new beginning and blossom into the life you desire.  

At EQnimity, we've been using the winter months to work on our own transitions which you'll read about here including a new location, new horses, workshops, programs, and pricing structure.  We're excited about the changes and hope you will be too.

Happy Trails!

We're transitioning ourselves and are moving to a new location at 178 Sherman Rd in Waitsfield, VT (featured in the photo at the top of the page).  This winter brought a wonderful opportunity our way in picturesque Mad River Valley that will allow us to expand our offerings. We'll continue to offer private sessions and will now also support businesses, organizations, and retreats.  

We've thoroughly enjoyed our fall/winter location at Stephanie Brinkman's farm in Waterbury where the horses have benefited from her care and where they've thrived on Dynamite products.  Contact Stephanie at 802.399.9377 for more info on Dynamite nutrition products.

Becoming a True Leader

A true leader is someone people want to follow and do their best for.  They go beyond just managing people by demonstrating a set of emotional and social intelligence skills that all great leaders have including self-awareness, empathy, balanced energy, and handling relationships. Whether you're in a leadership position already or it's part of your career plan, horses can help enhance your skills and effectiveness by changing the way you think, act and behave. You'll walk away with new levels of awareness and the skills and confidence to truly lead - personally or professionally.
