All the FeelQuest retreats are designed to equip you with the tools you need to take on the challenges in your life and find the right answers. You’ll find yourself feeling stronger, more self-aware, and more confident about dealing with the trials and tribulations of daily life.
This is what horses are for! Within the therapeutic environment of the retreat and under the supervision of trained practitioners, you will experience contact with horses that can help you process your emotions and access your inner strength.
Horses are kind, sensitive animals with keen sensory abilities that give them heightened awareness of their surroundings. This energy, in turn, can help us humans focus on our emotions and the nature around us, as well as bring a sense of awareness to how we live our lives. And awareness is the first step towards change.
FeelQuest Retreats conducted a successful trip to Menorca Island, where they helped participants connect with a herd of Spanish horses through various activities such as horse guided empowerment, reiki, tai chi, meditation, sound healing, and new moon rituals. Menorca itself is a cozy, tranquil little island in the Mediterranean Sea and is a beautiful place for a retreat. FeelQuest Retreats is not only experienced in taking you on an unforgettable healing journey with horses but they also have the knowledge to pick out the perfect places for that journey. Make sure not to miss out on the once in a lifetime experience of a FeelQuest retreat!
