Horses for Heroes

A full-day (9am to 4pm) workshop designed for first responders and frontline healthcare workers to come together and focus on healing themselves.  It’s no surprise that those who take care of us typically live in the fight or flight response area of their brain and have a tough time decompressing.
During this retreat workshop, you’ll have an opportunity to relax, release tension and be given the space to process the overwhelming emotions from taking care of the critically ill or injured.

Takeaways you can expect:


  • Enhanced mindfulness and meditation practices

  • Learning how to connect with your body and grounding

  • Enhanced teamwork and healthy communication skills

  • Build skills to process traumatic calls and situations

  • Develop healthy coping strategies for dealing with compassion fatigue
