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
Join us for the full moon.
This is a powerful time to gracefully acknowledge the beauty and richness of your life and an opportunity to mindfully and gently release any aspects that no longer serve the highest vision of your Soul.
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.
Weaving together Crystal Singing Bowls and vocals as well as other sound healing instruments; drum, harp and guitar to powerfully clear and transform energy.
“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!”

Satsang, Meditation & Soma Yoga with Rebecca and Mayank from India.
“The Vedic tradition of Self knowledge realizes the essence of all beings”
Rebecca and Mayank have emerged on the world spiritual stage as modern teachers who have imbibed the teachings from the east and have transformed them to be relevant to the western, more scientific mind. Meditation, as they teach, is our natural state. There are no steps, no stages, no attaining, no striving, no labels, no dogmas.
Rebecca speaks to inspire the most precious jewel, the knowledge of Oneness, to be realized within all who join her spiritual discourse.
In 1985, Rebecca traveled to the Himalayas of India and met an enlightened master who lived the freedom that he spoke of. Since then, Rebecca has been immersed in a yogic lifestyle of meditation and Self-enquiry. A meditation master is not merely a teacher who passes on information. A true master inspires the enquiring mind to look deeper to see that one’s own self is none other than the universal, indestructible Self. All that which is seen and known ultimately dissolves, but life remains. Realizing this, mind’s doubts, fears, worries, sense of separation and confusion dissolve and one becomes at peace.
Mayank explores the possibilities for more movement through a complete understanding of our body/mind connection and how it directly translates into our day to day life.
A teacher by profession Mayank then pursued a career in music. In 1986 he came to India to understand the source of sound through meditation at the International Meditation Institute ( I.M.I ). He has practised Hatha Yoga throughout his years in India. He teaches Soma-Yoga and Fundamental Movement at I.M.I., and is a certified Soma-Yoga teacher. Mayank has been awarded a Masters in Meditation and Yoga from Vishwa Unnyayan Samsad World Yoga Council, India.
Rebecca and Mayank are guiding lights to all who wish for freedom from the mind’s limited view and the body’s limited mobility. Join them and let your heart, mind and body be expanded in the discovery of true freedom. Simply how they live their lives is what they share with others. Their teachings are so natural and relevant to everyday life that after participating with them, one is able to effortlessly continue meditation on their own and integrate healthy movement into their life.

After six years of monthly Gong Bath Meditations, Paul and his lovely wife Gisele, are embracing a big life change and moving to Ottawa, Ontario. But it’s not ‘goodbye’ it’s just ‘see you later’ . Paul will be returning on September 9th for his ever-popular Gong Bath – don’t miss out!
Are you seeking harmony, energy, balance, and deep inner peace?
In a seated or reclining position, recipients are bathed in the powerful vibrations of the gong. Affecting us at the deepest cellular levels, the mind is stilled, tensions released, blockages cleared, and the body re-energized.
The secret of the gong is its tremendous potential for healing and rejuvenation. Because the gong covers the full spectrum of sound it vibrates all the cells, bones and organs, some more than others, depending upon the pitch of the gong. You feel an influx of energy coming from it into your body as well as hear it.
The sounds from the gongs travel from the outer ear throughout the body via the vagus nerve — impacting brain waves, respiratory rate and heart rate.
Sound and vibration help facilitate a deep sense of peace,release tension and blocked energy, and balance the energy centers in the body. They are working at a cellular level to re-balance the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.
DATE: Sunday, September 9th
TIME: 2:30 – 4:00 pm (please arrive between 2:15 – 2:30 pm)
FEE: $31 + GST pre-paid online (we are no longer accepting payment at the door; all registrations must pre-pay online. No refunds or carry-overs)

What People are Saying ~
“I was surrounded by the vibration of the flow of non stop sound/music and was entranced, soooooo relaxed and had free flowing consciousness. It was the fastest one and a half hours of doing “nothing” that I’ve ever had! I just LOVED the experience and had forgotten how wonderful it is! I had tingling in my crown and vibration all through my body. I felt like I had a retreat or something. My brain completely slowed down and I was filled with joy and humour. I would highly recommend this to anyone, it’s totally worth it.” ~ Kim Waite

An intimate retreat experience with like-minded, soul-inspired journeyers through the wisdom of the horse.
The feminine seeks connection – with herself, with others and with all of life.
When she feels connected she is both inspired and inspiring!
Together we enliven the feminine creative, intuitive, feeling and visionary parts of ourselves. We are inspired to dream, to create, and to expand into a greater version of our self.
What are you seeking to create in your life, and how can we best support you?
Magic happens when we gather in authentic community.
The transformational path can feel isolating as we expand beyond our conditioned ways of being. It can mean letting go of the old – support systems, friends, even family members in some cases – to make room for the new. Connecting with others on a similar journey in a safe and sacred space can offer us a deep sense of connection; soul-to-soul without the pretenses of the masks we’ve been conditioned to wear in the outside world. And from this place of feeling deeply seen, heard and supported you are finally free to unfurl your wings and expand into your soul-inspired life.
Without judgement or expectation, you are welcomed in to an intimate circle of fellow journeyers reminding you that although this is a solo inward journey, you are never really alone. We connect more fully to our self when in relationship to others Bearing witness to, and sharing in others’ experiences, can make the unconscious parts of our self conscious. An unexpected stroke of insight can deepen our own awareness when we recognize ourselves in another. And we are once again reminded that we are all one; though the details of our story may vary, our core desire for love and connection is universal.
The divine light in me honors the divine light in you.
Join us for 3-days of Conscious Connection that will revolutionize your transformational journey.
You will enjoy …
- Daily individual and group process work with the horses designed to help you move through challenges and gain deeper awareness, insight, clarity and confidence to grow into your vision of a soul-inspired life.
- Unearth your deepest truths, discover your greatest strengths and engage with your inner wisdom.
- Through reflective (observation) and active (hands-on) process work you will partner with our horses from the ground and begin to recognize deeper aspects of yourself and your connection to the whole as mirrored back to you in the eyes of a horse. Partnering with horses naturally draws us into a right-brained intuitive, body-centered state where we can gain a full kinesthetic learning experience. Blocked or stuck emotional energy is released as new insights settle deep into your cellular memory. Why Horses? Read more here
- Guided visualization and/or creative arts will anchor-in new insights and awareness from your processes with the horses by engaging the power of the subconscious mind.
- Ceremony with fire and natural elements from nature. The process of any transformational journey is marked by endings and new beginnings. It is important to honour and celebrate these milestones and set clear intentions moving forward. Sharing in sacred Ceremony with fellow journeyers creates a deep and meaningful bond that powerfully elevates the whole.
- Healthy and delicious meals catered to suit your dietary needs. Food is foundational to a vibrantly healthy and soul-inspired life. Our meals are lovingly prepared from natural organic whole foods to deeply nourish your body and mind so you feel at your best. All dietary preferences/sensitivities are catered to.
- Ultra-cozy accommodation. Enjoy a deeply peaceful and rejuvenating night’s sleep in our delightfully restored farmhouse. Our beds were purchased with you in mind; designed to feel like a big hug at the end of your full day.
- Plenty of reflective & relaxation time. Integration is an important part of any new learning experience. Take a walk, sit beneath the canopy of our wisteria and journal, engage in soul-nourishing conversations with fellow journeyers, or take a nap in the hammock beneath our old growth trees. Let your deepening awareness and new insights gently seep in to your being. Open yourself up and allow this new unfolding energy to re-awaken all the potential that is yours to create your soul-inspired life!
