Writing with Horses

Writing with Horses was soul food, and is still nourishing me...the loving energy of the horses carried me on a joyful journey into the heart of my own creative expression. I felt peaceful, inspired and deeply cared for as new, creative sparks flew into formation.
— Linda Galasso

Join us for our signature Writing with Horses weekend experience where you’ll connect with our magnificent herd, the expansive land, and your own exquisite creativity. Ultimately, you’ll give yourself the gift of igniting your spirit through 2 days of horse immersion and creative writing. Here’s some of what you’ll receive:

  • a beautiful blend of horse time, writing time, meditation time, YOU time

  • backdoor tools and writing prompts to access your own creativity and to sidestep your inner critic

  • an invitation to tune into the present moment to better hear your own voice

  • an experience of time slowing down, allowing inspiration to flow in

  • insights and wisdom simply from BEing with the horses

  • a deeper understanding of how horses communicate in a herd and how they respond to our body language

  • a chance to meet with the other sweet characters at Flag Ranch, including a 600 pound pig and a goat that thinks he’s a horse

  • an opportunity connect with like-minded creative seekers in an intimate setting

  • a feeling of being nurtured and safely held as you slip into the herd and your journals

This joyful day will be facilitated by writer, poet and creative cheerleader Allison Fragakis (www.WritingAllison.com) and writer and communications consultant, Kimberly Carlisle, director of Flag Ranch. No writing or horse experience necessary. Limited to 10 participants.
