Retreat Participant Testimonials
Thank you so much for the two days of working with yourself and your amazing horses. My daughter and I have two horses and for all my years of horse experience I have never experienced such a connection and learning from horses. From the start of the two days how you worked with the group to open up an awareness and allow for experiences was amazing. Watching people connect with the horses and see them taking control and believing in themselves was like no other course. The work that you do truly helps individuals on many levels, I can tell you that my daughter was feeling very insecure and did not have much self worth...but to watch her now only after spending two days with you is almost like a transformation, she has confidence and is communicating much more.
I believe that anyone can benefit from your program. Thank you again.
The experience of spending a day at Creating Harmony Within Ranch was beyond any expectation I had. The horses and animals have the most amazing healing energy you will ever have the opportunity to be a part of. Sharon creates this beautiful harmonious experience that is open and inviting and deep. Not only does she open her heart and invite you in but so does her wonderful herd.
I very highly recommend that you take the time and visit her retreat for an adventure that will leave you feeling much happier and calmer!
Testimonials from the Westover Staff Equine Team Building Day
“Thanks for the life changing experience.” Deb
“I liked the quiet “connecting” with the horses during meditation. I was very skeptical at first but loved working with the horses and everything else seemed to disappear.” Audrey
“I got a lot out of the meditation with the horses. The whole day was great.” Jeffres
“I loved watching how my fellow staff members were able to totally sync with the horse. The presenters were well prepared and professional.” Brenda
“The experience with the horses was so relaxing which led to a lot of introspection. Taking your time, learning patience, being in the moment are skills that the horses expanded for me. It was also wonderful to watch the staff take chances and their ability to work together. The instructors were very helpful and the opportunity to compare our expectations in the morning to the outcomes from the afternoon worked well and was very informative.
Ron Elliott, Director of Westover Rehabilitation Services
My experience at Creating Harmony and their horses was … a learning experience. I learned more about myself and about the healing impact of the horses. It was inspiring listening to Sharon’s story about her healing journey and how her horse was a part of it. There is an invitation to possibilities, I was introduced to a new way of relating to my daughter. More cautious and sweet.
I really appreciated both Sharon and Jean’s presence. Their love for the horses and their belief in their power of their work.
This experience with Creating Harmony and their horses was a life-changing event for me. Knowing who Sharon was prior to your fall and then seeing who she had become after – with the holding support of God and your horses – with her herd being at the forefront, words are not even sufficient for the heartfelt joy and connectedness that I experience on the ranch. Before this time I knew I loved animals and was so scared of horses – and it was time to change that stance in my life. Sharon helped that to happen. Sharon, Jean, and Genie brought a loving, connected, grounding presence to our experience. Her communication on grounding is one of the best two meditation experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I was so relaxed I almost fell asleep! I am not a meditator; and yet I was shown how to drop into myself with this unique method. It was only after this that I was confident enough in myself to experience and present myself to Mica.
I gained understanding sensitivity to what is around me at the Creating Harmony Within Centre. Their horses showed me how in tuned one can be with what is around them, and how with that awareness you can find yourself.
Cecil express what his “Aha Moment” was here at Creating Harmony Within
My experience at the Creating Harmony Within Centre and their horse was empowering and allowed emotions to flow. Fear and anxiety and nervousness gave way to curiosity and connection.
The horses revealed to me was my own capacity to “hold”, and be “held”, energetically and physically the magnificent being that is Apollo. Knowing his fear and uncertainty are a reflection of my own. I discovered that somewhere in my being I can hold and be held by myself with the same courage and compassion I have for Apollo.
Leader of the Three Fire Ezhignowenmindwaa Walpole Men’s Group, expresses what his “Aha Moment” was at Creating Harmony Within.
The experience I had at Creating Harmony Within is something I will carry with me all my life. It was extraordinary, deep, and exquisite.
The horses awakened within in my capacity to love, to believe in it no matter what the outer event was. Horses have saved my life once, now they have deepened it. They helped me remember what connection really is.
Sue from the Three Fire Ezhignowenmindwaa Women’s Shelter on creating boundaries Boundaries.
Connecting with the horses at Creating Harmony Within helped me ground and connect to the gentleness in the world and the gentleness within me and the spirit of the horse. It reminded me, and helped me acknowledge that there are other realms to travel through, not just the physical one we live in. It is a very unique experience, and I am grateful to Sharon, Jean, and Genie for holding that space to allow my journey to happen.
Cecil explains how this program is beneficial for counsellors.
The horses at the Creating Harmony Center helped me take back my authority and authorship to my life. They invited me to not wait passively by, but to step forward and engage with others. Claim what is mine – to pick up the stick and value that boundaries are my responsibility, and that joy and delight are also my responsibility.
