Come and sit awhile.
Join us on a spiritual journey.
Listen to the wisdom of your heart.
What insights await you?
Tap into the rhythm of the horses’ presence and gentle hearts to deeply connect with your inner wisdom and intuition during our meditation circles. Horses possess the ability to act as conduits of connection to Self, to others and to our spiritual oneness, and can therefore deepen our meditation experience.
We will be seated outside on chairs in a circle with one or two supervised horses. The meditation will be self-guided and the horse(s) will be free to move around us. They may elect to hold space for us from a distance or they may feel inclined to offer specific individuals energetic support. As co-facilitators in this process we will leave it up to them. (This is not a facilitated learning or healing session).
Joining Krista and the Wisteria herd is Linda Chamut.
Linda has studied the Inca Shamanic tradition over many years, in Canada, the USA, and Peru. Some of the teachings that Linda practices are: the importance of smudging to remove stuck energy and to promote clarity, creating sacred space for gatherings to support higher purpose focus, and teaching the importance of centering and grounding in meditation and in life.

“Breathing in the loving horse energy brought so much clarity and heartwarming rest during our meditation on Wisteria Acres’ magical land. Thank you, Cassi, Krista and Linda” ~ Reana, Surrey, BC
“What a unique, gentle and powerful meditation experience co-facilitated by Krista, Linda and the horse Cassi! Received with a shamanic welcome into a shady grove overlooking the sunlit horse pasture, the atmosphere was magical and the space was sacred, most honouring and beautiful” ~ Nelie, Maple Ridge, BC
“I have always had a love of horses but many years ago lost touch with that part of me. As a city dweller my life is very busy and noisy. When I heard about meditation with horses, I said ‘YES’ before they had even decided on the date! My experience with the group and Cassi who joined us was beautiful. The retreat centre itself is breathtakingly beautiful as is the energy that Krista and Linda have brought to this event. I found myself in a very peaceful, quiet place that only this space offers. I look forward to attending more meditations with horses and await to see which horse joins us to offer their wisdom.” ~ Dana, North Vancouver, BC
This Sacred Sound Healing Journey weaves together Crystal Singing Bowls and vocals as well as other sound healing instruments; drum, harp and guitar to powerfully clear and transform energy.
The vibrational frequencies of sound will clear tension and guide you into graceful release, leaving you nourished and renewed with a feeling of deep peace, trust and surrender.
“The sounds were exquisite, soft & gentle & Theda has the voice of an angel!”
Theda Phoenix is a singer, songwriter and intuitive song and sound channel drawing on her empathic abilities to reflect back the intention and energy of the group through song. She creates music for healing and transformation, touching people deeply with her angelic, transporting voice and shamanic vocal sounds.
Her music inspires a deep connection to the heart and the spirituality of the human experience, celebrating the miracle of existence and the intrinsic loving essence within all, reminding listeners of their own inner guidance and connection to source energy.
“You have the voice and the soul of an angel. When you sing, shivers go through my entire being. Keep lifting us higher, Theda. You are pure Light in form.”
“You are like the Divine Mother herself when you sing, holding all who is present with such tenderness, sweetness, and absolute pure LOVE!”

Do you have the mealtime blues due to restrictions in diet, food sensitivities or allergies?
As industrial agriculture continues to experiment with our food using genetically engineered or modified foods, increased use of pesticides, herbicides and questionable fertilizers, more and more people are developing food sensitivities and allergies.
