Drum Beats, Heartbeats and Hoofbeats: A Horse inspired Drum and Journey Circle for Inspiration, Healing and Well Being

Drumming CircleDates: Sunday July 20, 2014 & Saturday September 27, 2014
Time: 3:30 - 5:00pm
Place: Pebble Ledge Ranch, Novelty Ohio
Donation/Fee: $25.00
Guided by: Jackie and Herb Stevenson, seven gentle hearted horses and one courageous zebra.

Reservations required by e-mail to Jackie at jacalynstevenson@gmail.com.

Bring your own drum (or we can provide you with one), two blankets to sit upon & a journal. Dress for the weather as we will be drumming and journeying outside or in a covered area with the horses.

Horses, as all nature, are remarkable teachers of sacred relationship. They have an amazing ability to resonate with our true emotions and reflect back to us our authentic self. Horses are inherently shamans and holy ones, they are the sacred drum beat as their hoofs touch the earth in natural rhythm.

Join us for this unique opportunity to share a drum and journey circle with the human and horse herd. Our drumming and journey circle is open to adults of all spiritual backgrounds and practices.

Nature's Summer Celebration:

The Active Experience of Doing
No-thing to Discover Some-thing

summerDate: Sunday, July 20, 2014
Time: 9:00 am - 3:15 pm
Fee: $100
Place: Pebble Ledge Ranch

In the simple act of doing no-thing we make space for some-thing extraordinary to happen. Take a rest from your search to discover what is already there.

In the extraordinary place of Human Being rather than Human Doing "Love is not difficult to find...it is impossible to avoid."

One-day retreat/workshops offering the opportunity to be in relationship with a herd of gentle hearted horses within the beautiful realm of nature.

Learn from our herd horses and nature to enjoy:

  • time to yourself
  • the summer rhythm of slow,
  • the luxury of sunshine or a cozy gentle rain
  • horse kisses, wild flowers and bird song
  • quiet stillness and lively play
  • moments of discovery and creation
  • your ecological identity

In the reflection of the horse's eye and flowing river we can discover our inner vision. The smallest insight can change our life forever.

There is no riding--the focus is on relationship. The work with the horse takes place on the ground. No Horse experience is necessary.

Nature's Fall and Colorful
Lessons of Change

Dream Workshop with Horses
as our Guides

dreamDate: Saturday, September 27, 2014
Time: 9:00 am - 3:15 pm
Fee: $100
Place: Pebble Ledge Ranch

"Dream Tending" with Horses as our Guides:

The beauty of fall is a wonderful time to Awaken to the Power of Your Dreams and Visions (Based on Steven Aizenstat's Dream Tending process.

This workshop engages horses as our guides to explore dream time in our night sleep and in day dreams as an important source of learning, knowing, remembering and visioning.

Dreams are guidelines unfolding our own uniqueness and teaching us our own lessons. They are reflections of our outer world, messages from our inner world, teachings from the land of our ancestors and blessings from the realm of Spirit. Tap into your ecological identity to realize your dreams.

Experience in the dream world expands the awareness of our life journey. The challenge is not that we have too few dreams or visions but in moving them to our awareness and recognizing which ones to cherish, follow and bring to action.

Committing to dream work we can expand our capacities as a sacred presence bringing forth the dreams of healing, wholeness and abundance for ourselves, for our community, for mother earth, and for the children of the generations yet to come.
