Your Lifelong Dream – “Going for it!” – Equus Spa Retreat

Okay – so you want to live out your lifelong dream.

“The” dream. The Thing that everyone talks about – your peers, your kids, your spouse, your realtor; your cousin, your hair stylist, your financial planner. They all seem to have stumbled across the Thing. You don’t know what it is, exactly. You just know that it’s working for them. The Thing is workin’ real good, and you want it for yourself.

That “thing”? It’s just their own unique sense of purpose.

Not just any purpose. Their purpose. And, guess what?

You have one, too.

What does purpose have to do with lifelong dreams? Dreams are full of purpose. Dreams are born within us for purpose. We follow dreams for the purpose of fulfillment, achievement, peace, joy, love – the purpose of feeling something that is significant and specific to our individual needs.

In short – your dreams are yours for a reason. Because of this, they’ll politely nag at your insides until you find the right strategies to unleash them, embrace them, and bring them to life. It’s simple: recognize your dreams, follow your purpose. Feel. Happy, loved, successful, secure – you’ve made it! You finally have the Thing.

Sounds easy, right? Then why haven’t you gotten there yet?

You might be following the wrong roadmap.

By allowing fear, shame, doubt, and feelings of unworthiness to direct our thoughts, we often end up not where we want to be, but where we believe we must go in order to avoid pain, failure, or abandonment. So, where’s the other roadmap? The better one?

It’s within you.

Your intuition can lead the way, but first you have to find the courage to follow it. This is where the horses come in. Horses are masters of intuition, and their tendencies to mirror human emotion, along with their innate responses to connection and interaction, can guide you through the process of locating your personal pain points and unique desires. If there’s anything horses won’t do, it’s feed our egos! These animals are blatant truth tellers, and our own truths are of the highest values to each and everyone of us. Our truths are the real roadmap. And to see where we want to go in life, we first need to know where we stand.

Join us at Ste. Anne’s Spa from October 22 to 25, 2021 and experience “Going for it!” like never before.

Over the course of four days and three nights, you will develop strategies for:

Practicing self-awareness, accountability, and the power that lies behind perception

Establishing healthy boundaries within yourself, your relationships, and your environment

Understanding the value of honouring your needs , personal prompts, and wisdom

Breaking down limiting beliefs and embracing your full potential

Harnessing the skill of listening to and abiding by your inner guidance

And let’s not forget – you’ll be at the spa!

“The Ste. Anne’s philosophy focuses on creating an atmosphere to help rebuild your strength, recapture your energy, and reflect on what’s truly important in your life. Taking time for yourself is crucial, otherwise your health, family, work and spiritual needs will suffer. We’re proud to offer you what our body and spirits need most: relaxation, revitalization and a chance to heal from the intensity of our daily routines. A stay at Ste. Anne’s Spa is an investment in yourself and your future well-being. We look forward to seeing you!”

The Retreat

Day One – Welcome Reception and Dinner

You arrive at Ste. Anne’s Spa and breathe in the country air, the wildflowers, and the sense of clarity that you know awaits. You settle in your spacious, private room, unpack your belongings, and meet your equus life coaches face-to-face. At the dinnertime gathering, you connect with your fellow participants , review the program, and enjoy some culinary delights before heading into day two of your courageous, dream-catching journey.

Day Two – Reveal Your Lifelong Dream

You’ve slept amazing and scarfed down your first hardy Ste. Anne’s breakfast, but the best is yet to come. It’s time to meet your mentors – the horses of the spa! Today, you’ll work with the horses as they harness sixty million years of intelligence and evolution to guide you through personal, groundbreaking realizations.

The ground exercises with your four-legged master will allow you to play witness to your deepest thoughts and feelings from a safe place of non-judgement and self compassion . You will discover more about your core values, self-limiting beliefs, and how the way in which you perceive yourself directly impacts your experience of the world around you.

Day Three – Listen to Your Heart. Live Your Dream.

Your heart is full, your dreams await.

You’re ready to go for it.

Today, the horses and coaches help you translate your retreat takeaways into a real world call to action . They will share their expert knowledge and strategies to help you dig deeper, set boundaries, and listen to your inner prompts that stem from a place of love, courage, and vulnerability. By the end of your day, you’ll hold the absolute certainty of knowing what you want, how capable you are of achieving it, and how to stop yourself from getting in your own way – ever again!

This calls for celebration – hence, the exclusive dining experience!

Day Four – Integrate and Bid Farewell

The end of your stay at Ste. Anne’s Spa makes way for a new beginning like you’ve never experienced before. After enjoying one last, savoury breakfast with the peers that you’ve grown so close with, you realize that the experience has brought you all towards something greater, both separately and united. You see yourself more clearly, and believe in yourself more highly than ever before. While we enjoy our last meal together, we will reflect on what we’ve learned, how we’ve grown, and how we’ll choose to live from this day forward. Leaving may feel bittersweet, but you’re ready to hit the ground running – maybe even galloping – towards your lifelong dream.
