Animal experience hosted by Katherine

Hosted in English

What you'll do

A brief but inspiring discussion on meditation and why we do it with horses will motivate you to be dedicated and vigilant in your practice.

Then we go and meet the horses and I will teach you the basics in animal meditation. Then we groom the horses; this is the best way to get the horses to accept you as herd members as they bond by grooming each other.

As we start to meditate, the more stable, connected and balanced the client, the easier it is for the horse to step into his role of soothing, regulating, teaching and inspiring with his gentle and peaceful energy.

Often the horses will lie down and we can get down on the grass with them and be close and connected. We work on touching the horses in specific areas and watching for significant reactions to detect connection.

There is often an opportunity to test your connection by asking the horses to follow you without a lead and then you can take a little walk together.

We often finish with a beautiful guided meditation which will be chosen depending on the specific needs of the client.

We always end the session with gratitude and a big horsey cuddle.

As seen in the BBC, ITV and The Sunday Times; I am a therapist and meditation teacher and I use animals and nature to inspire, soothe regulate and teach my clients. I have studied and loved horses my whole life and dedicated myself to studying Yoga, meditation and Eastern Philosophy. I have travelled to India and Bhutan to learn from the masters. Having spent hundreds of hours meditating with my own horses, in nature, and studying their behaviour and my own self growth, I've constructed the perfect formula for intense relaxation that will benefit the health of your mind, body and soul. I am a votary of happiness and believe, the more happy and connected people are, the better the world will be as a whole.

A wonderful experience. Katherine certainly knows her stuff and made us feel at ease amongst the beautiful horses. We left feeling relaxed and at peace. We can certainly recommend it to others and would be happy to try the packhorse experience another time.

I absolutely loved this very simple and sensational experience and want to do it all again! It would be a great thing to do with a group you know eg team or family / friends or... in my case, strangers. Katherine is quite possibly the most accessible meditation practitioner and explains this in the best way (no bs**** approach) - I have gained a fair bit of insight of self and surroundings and work I can do from here. Don't hesitate - just go for it and be open minded

Katherine's meditation was good and certainly for people new to meditation, I was disappointed that there was only 2 horses,from the advert I expected to have many more horses, and more interaction with them. Worthwhile experience, but wouldn't do it a second time

We came into this experience thinking we would just get to meet some horses . When we got here we learnt a lot about the host . She guided us through a meditation which was really relaxing and the setting was gorgeous by the stream . The host one by one asked about of media ration experience and from this she gave us advice or described our personalities and traits and it was so helpful and accurate .

This is a truly beautiful, magical, spiritually uplifting and emotionally liberating experience developed by Katherine who in a stroke of genius, realising how highly sensitive horses are and their transcending ability to connect with humans, soothe emotional upheaval and bring about healing, sought to share her own experience with others so that they too could calm their anxieties, heal their traumas and feel at peace in a safe non judgemental environment around her majestic horses and Mother Nature. Katherine combines her vast knowledge of meditation with the therapeutical benefits of grooming and bonding with such a strong yet gentle creature, guiding you through this unusually special experience. The result is outstanding, I feel so fortunate to have met Katherine and elated at having had an insight into her original vision, the curative experience of meditating in stunning surroundings, sharing your deepest feelings whilst grooming and cuddling a magnificent, all accepting horse. Give it a go. I will certainly come back for more.
