Week Long Equestrian Retreat and Life Changing Workshop at Gateway 2 Ranch
Glen Ellen, California – April 7, 2009.
Come experience a true equestrian adventure at Gateway 2 Ranch in British Columbia, Canada home to Liz Mitten Ryan, her husband and their herd of warmblood horses. Born to this paradise, the horses are treated as family. In the pristine grassland, lakes and forests of Gateway, the horses interact at liberty, sharing their gifts and teachings and intuitive connection. Indeed, the animals of Gateway 2 Ranch have co-authored Liz’s four award winning books. With her first book One with the Herd Liz opened the door to the wisdom, teachings and understanding her horses offered. She shared her reflections on how we live, the animals that we share our planet with and how we can best achieve peace, joy and an appreciation for life.
Five exclusive week long workshops this summer will offer individual attention to eight participants per session beginning with the welcoming gift of Liz’s four books. This retreat can cause transformation in the way one lives as the free roaming herd oversees your stay. Joining Liz and her horses in aiding the participants in finding truth and spiritual understanding in a symbiotic relationship with all animals and life is Dana Williams an “artist of change.” Dana uses her intuitive healing gifts to teach an emotional and spiritual practice for daily living. Billa De Vries will take you on an escorted journey to contact the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms to guide you to understand your inner reality and align you to awaken your innate wisdom to be in harmony with the earth. The goal of the workshop is not only to entertain all of these new concepts but to take these pleasures home to enjoy long after the visit to Gateway 2 has come to a close.
Your stay at Gateway 2 Ranch in the magnificent beauty of British Columbia offers a retreat in a comfortable relaxed atmosphere giving guests the opportunity to connect with their natural surrounding free from many of life’s “essentials.” Guests will investigate the rocks, trees, vortices and energies of the natural world using the 320 acre Gateway 2 Ranch as their counsel. Each guest’s private journey will be lead by the skilled practitioners both human and equine in either group exercises or private sessions. Participants can chose to interact with their horses in liberty exercises or in riding activities for those who are comfortable doing mounted work. No riding experience is required for this retreat in discovering the rhythms of the universe whether from horse, land or guide.
This all inclusive retreat beginning in Kamloops British Columbia with the hour long trip to Gateway 2 Ranch includes comfortable lodging which has a minimum impact on the natural surroundings. Guests stay in wall tents or the Spirit Lodge and may elect to experience the beauty and solitude in one of the Spirit Quest Outposts. Meals offer organic and fresh ingredients catering to a whole food natural and organic approach with sprouted grain breads, wonderful salads, fish, chicken and smoked salmon. Organic wine, beer and cider at happy hour and dinner combined with incredible desserts insure that all guests leave the table well satisfied.
