Equine Assisted Soul Experience 5-day retreat

Facilitated by Gabriella Angus, Ruthie Cooper, Lucia Birch, Anna Saqqara, Cher Langdon, Carol Ward and Dawn Oakley-Smith and the Heartshore Herd

Dates: Friday 9th – Tuesday 13th July 2021

We are very excited to announce something completely new for The Secret Space. A deep healing retreat made all the more powerful by the presence of horses.

The Equine Assisted Soul Experience (EASE) is a 5-day journey that will guide you towards an extraordinary and potent encounter with the deepest and most profound aspects of your being. It will offer real life-changing possibilities that will bring clarity, deep healing and the ability to step forward in the next stage of your life’s journey with purpose and self-confidence, courage and joy.

When the soul of a horse meets the soul of a human, magic unfolds! During numerous experiences observing horse/human soul connections, we have been amazed at the ability of the horse to acknowledge, cherish and sustain the life force of those who come to stand with them.

The Facilitators who will be supporting and guiding you on this experience have a wealth of experience. They have learned to honour horse wisdom and the capacity of the soul of the horse to open gateways for us.

“Horses give us an awareness of soul, of who we are in the deepest—where it matters; a consciousness and a sense of our connection to the divine spark within and without; a seeing and a knowing of our place in the stream of life; an ability to stand with courage in one’s centre, whatever happens.” Dawn Oakley Smith founder of Heartshore Horses

Our time will be shared between working directly with the horses and exercises, movement, meditations and journeying to deepen our connection to others and ourselves. In the process, things that have been held within, old hurts, grief and limiting beliefs can be gently released.

This work is truly life changing!


“Every day of the course is varied, enlightening and beneficial. I highly recommend this experience, one you will never forget.” Sandra C.

“A space of deep holding and healing and clearing…. being around the horses and the horse energy allows a depth of opening that otherwise would not be possible … it just happens without effort… one of the most opening things I have ever experienced.” Jacqueline S.

“A beautiful weekend of love, light and healing on many levels. We were ‘held’ every step of the way… Awesome experience.” Bridget
