What you'll do

Upon arrival at the ranch, we'll get grounded and connected to the space and then visit with the goats (at least a herd of 8 and new babies this year too) to learn from their wisdom around curiosity, courage, confidence, and connection. We'll explore ways you can grow these qualities in your life as you meet each of them and give them scratches which is a nice flow of giving/receiving. You'll see which goat you connect with the most and you'll learn a bit about them. We'll do a short meditation to feel the goat quality you most want in your life.

Then we'll head to the large horse pasture on 10 acres and you'll get to meet the herd of 4 horses and 1 mini donkey. Again you'll observe the horses and see which one you are most drawn to and why. You'll learn about each of the equines and what they teach which is often about power, leadership, presence, living from our hearts, and staying centered/grounded. We'll end with another short meditation to feel the healing power of the horses and become connected to the horse quality you want more of in your life and work.

All work with the animals is on the ground (no riding) and is based on respectful touch and listening to their desires as much as our own.
Other things to note
Most people are not allergic to goats or horses but if you think you might be, please bring allergy medicine and also be prepared for your clothes and hands to get dirty as the animals love to give kisses and may rub against you too.

A truly impactful experience, that I don't expect to find anywhere else. The animals were so friendly and created a warm and serene atmosphere, that made for such a unique meditation. Kate was full of astute observations that made the entire experience feel personal and meaningful. I feel supremely filled with peace and joy. Many thanks to Kate and all the sweet animals I met today.

Spent the day at the Mother Ranch with Katie Neligan soaking up the Spring Sunshine, grounding with the incoming energy of freshness and worthiness. My session revealed the sanctuary of my home as my stability (makes sense since so much of my work is committed with travel and my time at home is spent in fulfillment and creativity), shattering the glass ceiling with the shards of glass falling all around melting away and success exposed in a heart-felt fashion. It was wonderful to bounce my visions to Katie and she helping to decipher, we worked in great harmony.

I loved my experience with Kate, the goats, and horses. It was so refreshing to be outside in nature and to connect with such beautiful animals. The energy was amazing and I smiled the entire time I was there. I left feeling energized and connected. I would definitely recommend and go back!

Kate really made this experience special for me. Her expertise helping me connect with the animals at the ranch made for a rewarding and fantastic experience. The goats were really fun to watch and pet and connect with. The horses were also really engaging and affectionate. I left this experience feeling more relaxed then I have in months. I'll definitely be back.

This is the real thing folks. There is some serious good magic about this experience; and Kate is truly gifted. The setting is beautiful, and the horses and goats are so loving. I found Kate to be professional, credible, and wickedly intuitive. I laughed, I relaxed, I released. In a word, WONDERFUL. Wish I lived closer, as I'd definitely sign up for more. Next time I'm in Denver, I'll be back. BTW - coincidence or not? Prior to this experience, I hadn't slept a full night's sleep in almost two years. The same night after working with the horses and goats, I slept longer than six consecutive hours! Same the night after that. Good stuff!
