Calling Your Power Home

A Workshop of Equine Inspired Learning

With Yoga, Meditation and the Creative Arts


Saturday, October 21, 2017


equine assisted learningHorses offer humans an opportunity to learn a deeper way of being in the world. Horses embody power, grace and authenticity. Their survival depends on their ability to sense incongruity in the environment and respond appropriately. For these reasons and more, equine assisted learning is growing across the globe.

Horses naturally trust their instincts. They are effortlessly attuned to the emotions and intentions of those nearby. They protect their space with the minimum amount of effort needed. They relax completely when there is no threat to their safety or well-being.

Is this true of you?

Nurture your body with yoga

Open Your heart by  connecting with horses

Nourish your soul with creative immersion

Call back the power you’ve given away

This day is dedicated to supporting you to:

  • Deepen connection and cohesion in relationships
  • Enhance emotional resilience 
  • Release bodily tensions that inhibit your freedom
  • Discover the beauty of emotions and how to use them skillfully
  • Heighten your ability to recognize and honor your own needs and the needs of those around you and how to respond without depleting yourself

Barbara Sayre Thompson, RYT, CSYT and Pauli Hakensen, CADAC-II facilitate this day of equine assisted learning at Sky Ridge Ranch in Wilton, California


“Working with Barbara, Pauli, the horses, and other course participants in our full day workshop revealed my self-limiting pattern of sending vague signals when working with others. The lesson? Get grounded, and then step forward and be clear.”

-Rich Brewer, IT Manager, Sacramento
