Join us on our 300 acre pasture in St. Augustine, Florida, where you will deepen into a space of self-awareness through nature . . .
A life truly lived constantly burns aware what is no longer relevant, gradually reveals our essence, until, at last, we are strong enough to stand in our naked truth.
– Marion Woodman

As women, we often put the needs of others before our own. The Women’s Day Retreats are a sacred offering for you to step into a space that belongs to you and is centered around concepts of self-care. If we are not tending to our own needs and taking the time to check in with ourselves, we can not fully show up in our lives as the strong women that we are meant to be.
Allow yourself to reconnect, breathe, sink in, and recharge. There is no better way to find your balance than to spend a day in nature. All levels of riding experience are welcome. Whether it is your first time on a horse or you are an avid horsewoman, we have the equine partner just for you. Incorporating horses into the day takes us out of our routine, our comfort zones, and immediately puts us in the moment-to-moment engagement of becoming aware.
Dr. Ashley Thompson, owner of Thompson Therapy, will be your personal guide through this day of healing and self-care. Braiding together her knowledge of horses and Depth Psychology, Dr. Thompson creates safe, intentional spaces in nature that offer deep healing and self-realization to her clients.
The practice of Depth Psychology is the practice of soul-work. Allowing for the dark and the light to be contained, accepted, and valued is the work of the depth psychologist. At the forefront of Depth Psychology is the concept and practice of tending to one’s own inner psychic terrain, essentially the practice of self-care and self-evaluation. Dr. Thompson uses her equine partners and the healing power of nature to bring people closer to their most authentic selves.
Come prepared!! Check the detailed directions to the pasture. We will provide waters, yoga mats, all the food and beverages for after our trail ride, and always have back up sunscreen and bug spray (depending on the season) and layers in case it gets chilly. You may want to bring your own water bottle, and a hat. Please wear comfortable clothes that you will enjoy doing gentle yoga in and riding with your horse! Other than that, just be prepared to relax and enjoy yourself.
Your payment reserves your space at the retreat so don’t wait to sign up! Space is limited and is first come, first serve. Payments are non-refundable unless a retreat is canceled due to bad weather, so please be sure you can commit to the date.
