Private Retreat

A Personal Note from Koelle

Horses have been teaching me profound lessons for a new way of being since my early youth. They offered an important road map in my own life enabling me to embark on a journey that took me from utter hopelessness to a life filled with meaningful connections to others, a deep curiosity for life’s greater mystery and a humbling sense of awe for the resilience of the human spirit.

I’ve been traveling the world sharing the insights that horses and Mother Nature have offered me that have helped me heal from complex sexual abuse and trauma—lessons that continue to transform my world everyday.

The more I open myself to remaining curious, while deeply listening to the world around me, the more I come to recognize that we have become a human culture of trauma. Whether you’re one of the 70% of adults who have directly faced neglect, sexual, physical and/or phycological abuse or you’re struggling with feelings of shame, inadequacy and a sense of never feeling like you’re enough in your everyday life, or you’re beginning to feel the impact of trauma patterns that have unknowingly been passed down from one generation to the next—you are not alone.

I believe we are entering an important time in human history where we are each awakening to the impact of these patterns in order to embark on vital journey of healing. Facilitated work with horses can genuinely shift the relationship we are having with ourselves so that something truly magical can happen—our outer world, and relationships with others, undergoes a profound transformation mirroring back to us care, compassion, mutual respect and love.

There are, of course, many ways to access our internal patterns of behavior but I’ve found Equus Coaching to be a truly unique, highly effective and wonderfully playful way to rediscover ourselves. Most of my clients leave our day together saying, “Wow, that was like 15 years of meaningful therapy unveiled in one day!”

Instead of talking circles around ourselves—trying to mentally process our way towards a new level of awareness and creating new behaviors—the unbiased, clear feedback from horses can offer us an opportunity to be fully embodied while visercally experiencing the places where we might be stuck, allowing true healing to occur. Most important, Equus Coaching offers a safe, nonjudgmental practice ground for implementing radical new levels self-compassion and self-acceptance.

If you are craving healing and are curious to discover a new way of being, it would be an honor to work with you, directly.
