Connecting Through Grief

We are excited to announce a new addition to our programs at Medicine Horse—Connecting Through Grief, a program offering support for those experiencing grief due to a death loss (Human or Animal). This unique program provides a safe and nurturing environment where participants can explore the nature of grief through connection, mindfulness, discussion, and observation.

About the Program:

  • Duration: 4 weeks

  • Start Date: Friday, August 16 - Friday, September 6th

  • Time: 4:30 - 6:30 PM

  • Cost: $300

  • Eligibility: Adults 18+ who are six months out from their loss​​

 

 

​​​​​

What to Expect:

  • Connection: Build meaningful relationships with others who share similar experiences.

  • Mindfulness: Engage in practices that promote mental and emotional well-being.

  • Discussion: Participate in guided discussions that help process and understand your grief.

  • Observation: Benefit from the non-judgmental, grounded, and authentic presence of horses.

Horses offer a unique ability to support us in holding all that is going on within ourselves. Show up just as you are and find support within our herd—both human and equine.

Challenge by Choice:

Challenge by choice is a core value here at Medicine Horse. This means that participants are encouraged to participate to their level of their comfort. We always have shade, chairs, water, and alternative spaces available to maximize comfort. Our mini horses, donkeys, goats, and sheep can offer connection that may feel less intimidating than interactions with large horses.

Refund Policy:

  • Refunds: Full refunds are only available if requested before August 1st. No refunds will be distributed after this date.

  • Program Cancellation: If Medicine Horse cancels the group, full refunds will be provided.

  • Session Postponement: If Medicine Horse postpones one session due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, a make-up day will be provided. Refunds will not be provided if you miss a scheduled session.

We understand that grief is a deeply personal journey, and our program is designed to offer compassionate support every step of the way. All loss is valid, whether it is human or animal. It doesn't matter how long out you are from the loss, whether it be 6 months or 5 years. Our sessions will guide you through understanding and processing your grief, with the help of our dedicated facilitators and the therapeutic presence of our horses.

Why a Paid Program?

Unlike our other programs, which are funded by grants and offered free of charge, Connecting Through Grief will be a paid program. This allows us to cover the costs associated with providing high-quality support and ensures the sustainability of the program. Your contribution will directly support the resources and expertise required to make this group as impactful as possible.
