Awaken Inner Authority and Clarity with a Unique Group Activity

As the third most popular U.S. Destination, according to Travel + Leisure Magazine, Santa Fe, New Mexico has so much to offer its visitors, including truly unique opportunities to create beautiful memories. 

I recently worked with a group of professionals from a healthcare company going through a transition in leadership who raved about their experience with some of Santa Fe’s most gentle residents - the horses. The EQUUS Experience allowed the new leader and the existing senior managers to break down barriers and shed light on their organization and the transition that was taking place. 

The Equus Experience is a creative, playful, yet remarkably powerful approach to leadership, teambuilding, and personal and professional development. The experience is custom-designed and the participants invariably receive a clear, visceral experience of their own authority; where in their body they experience the right use of power; how they sabotage their wisdom and leadership; and how to reclaim their ability to lead, speak the truth, define their strengths, and refine their vision. Most importantly, they master the craft of honorable collaboration, the single tool guaranteed to produce the most astonishing harvest of desired results.

Participants will:

  • Learn the art of collaborative intelligence
  • Use curiosity and creativity to enhance leadership development
  • Ignite a sense of wonder that inspires the way we choose to live, love and work
  • Discover clear, authentic ways to communicate that foster trust and collaboration
  • Evoke inner wisdom, courage and creativity
  • Increase trust in self and others
  • Gain increased self-understanding and acceptance
  • Learn effective ways to break the logjam of inefficiencies in work and life
  • Enjoy a memorable, life enhancing experience

Why Horses?
Horses are consummate facilitators. They have an innate capacity to feel the intention of those around them, as well as to connect with others whom they trust. By offering direct, immediate and unbiased feedback, they are excellent companions in the exploration of powerful non-verbal realms of communication, relationship, intention, authority, self-understanding and leadership. Horses invite us into more authenticity, grounded in being present with ourselves, our co-workers, family, friends, and life itself.

Important note: No horse experience is necessary; no riding is involved.

Guests who stay at the Inn and Spa at Loretto have the added benefit of staff persons who have been through the Equus Experience themselves and can offer special insights. Please visit our website or e-mail me to learn more about this beautiful experience and how The Inn and Spa at Loretto can infuse your program with the magic and spirit of Santa Fe!
