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

Breathwork – Sound Healing – Energy Cultivation
Breath Empowerment is one of the most intensely powerful energy healing practices Matthew has found. As in his sound healing journeys, this sacred practice routinely produces a profound experience for anyone willing to sincerely try it.
It is one of the few physical exercises you can do that increases your body’s alkalinity; this is extremely healing as massive amounts of energy enter your body and create an engine-like vibration.
It is done lying on a yoga mat with Matthew guiding you through the process and preparing you for the next phase of the adventure – a transformational healing sound journey.
The frequencies Matthew channels through his voice and presence creates a sonic environment that dissolves the boundaries of time and space. Energy flows and insights emerge.
You will then learn and practice simple, profound Qigong movements that create a thick magnetic field for strength, grounding and healing.
Affectionately dubbed the “Cosmic Throat Singer”, Matthew is achieving recognition as an emerging leader in the world sound healing movement.
The practices that Matthew will share in The Ultimate Energy Experience have helped him through the toughest of times, and continue to fuel his energy and vitality as he continues a rigorous schedule of performances, workshops and travel.
Space is limited. No experience necessary.
“25 years experience in yoga, meditation, energy healing and massage and I have NEVER felt energy like this before…”

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.”

How often have you asked yourself, “What do I want in my life?” and, “How am I going to get there….?” “Is God guiding me?” Or “Am I destined to do this alone through my intuition?” “What is my gift?” “How am I meant to share it?”
Soul Coaching is a unique process of connecting Soul to Soul between you and your Mentor. Between your true needs and your false beliefs, between childhood conditioning and your heart’s sincere desires. You may even know exactly what you want and yet no one has of yet been able to put some of the pieces together for you in a way that makes sense and speaks to you…. creating your own ‘ahas.’ I know that you know who you are. And I trust that with the right process, you know what you need and the steps needed to take you closer to your right desires.
This is an invitation to walk with me as thousands of others successfully have. We will have a whole day to explore you and your current life stories and your intuition in non-traditional ways, and an opportunity to embrace healing perspectives that reveal a pathway ahead with renewed clarity.
Shana Lee is a renowned Soul Mentor and Clairvoyant who combines eastern and western energy exercises, oracle card symbolism, meditation and truth-based teachings to help spiritual seekers clarify intuition, answer tough questions, resolve fears and live a soul-full life.
A graduate of the Arthur Findlay College (Psychic Sciences) in the UK, Shana Lee has over a decade of experience guiding clients from around the world providing hope, validation, and inspiration through personalized spiritual mentorship.
This workshop includes a focus on the gifts of:
1. Introspection without self abuse, self neglect, or the opposite, unintended aggressiveness and defensiveness.
2. Communication with respect to your needs and your life as it currently is, and the needs of the people around you, Kindly dismantling the false ideals that are keeping you stuck or worried or fearful or arrogant but not confident, or even curious but stagnant. Nothing is off the table!
3. Everything you bring is brought forward to honour, love and respect, release and surrender. God is going to reveal something new to you from inside of you, in a whole new way.
HOW: We will do this through Partner work, Guided Meditations, Soul Coaching with myself, Oracle Card Symbolism, Q &A, devotions and worksheet questions.
Be prepared to laugh, let loose and share (whatever you are comfortable with, though people tend to go beyond their comfort zone in my classes and workshops), all the while feeling safe and free to be themselves.
OBJECTIVE: To empower you in your knowing, to facilitate the movements being made from within your soul & to give you a joyful day in a warm non-judgemental environment. Make this year your best one yet!
