Girl with Horse

Grief Reigns Retreat Information

Group Retreats

The wisdom and insights we gain when submerging ourselves in the rhythms of Mother Nature can be truly life changing. Kim offers a handful of experiential life coaching retreats throughout the year at specially chosen locations. She partners with horses based on her own inner healing the horses provided her due to trauma from childhood.  She witnessed first hand the healing power horses give so freely.

Horses can sense our sadness, anxiety, anger, fear, grief and depression, They have a way of showing us what we are feeling - they reflect it back to us.  

Traumatic events which may be only slightly similar to previous events during one’s lifetime, can cause us to go into a reactive state years later as an adult.

This is most commonly outside of the person’s awareness. Maybe someone says to them, “You’re over reacting,” and the person wonders why but yet recognizes that reacting is what they’re feeling. Where we would normally have a quiet calm response to someone or something, we are actually triggered and have a reactivity to it. Again, the old memory is not in their awareness associated to this.

The good news? This does not in any way take years of therapy to change or correct. It takes only a few professional Grief Reigns sessions to clear up and move forward with responses rather than reactions.
