Come Alive

Find the Fire Within

Come Alive

August 3rd – August 6th

We have created a new retreat with extra riding. We will take time to find connection with our horses as we ride out on 25,000. breathtaking acres. The Gestalt experiences will be woven into our days between riding and in the evenings. The Gestalt work will bring new awarenesses and insight that create an unfolding of possibilities.

These four days will renew your sense of joy while restoring your  innate ability to sense what you desire. Come open  to the teaching of the horses. Nature will fill your days with abundance.

June Voldseth

June Voldseth started Bonanza Creek Guest Ranch in 1993. It was a way for her to spend time with two of her passions, horses and people. But life stepped in with much more. Not only has the guest ranch been a fun adventure, but a learning, inspiring, empowering, life changing one. At the perfect time, along came awareness of the Touched By A Horse life coaching program and the opportunity to truly make Bonanza Creek a place to learn to live your dreams.

This picture I took of a stormy night at Soulful Prairies represents the experiences we have here. You open doors in our minds to expose the storm. I am so grateful to have found you and Soulful Prairies.

Whether you’re looking for solitude or connection, Linda’s retreats truly feed the soul. I have attended several,, and each time I return home renewed with a deeper understanding and acceptance of self. Linda has the rare ability to hold non-judgmental space for the complexity we experience as human beings in this world. Everyone deserves the chance to be seen and to touch into the freedom possible when we can look at ourselves and others with compassion and grace. These retreats offer that and more; I highly recommend them.

I had no idea of what to expect for this retreat but had I - they would have been blown out of the water. The space was full of learning and growth. I could not be more grateful for the experience!

A true slice of heaven... the space and vibe of Freedom Reigns and the guidance of Linda. A perfect match! A calming joy.

Linda has the ability to be soft and compassionate. She has an awareness of when a client needs to be moved and when to be still and quiet. This all creates a incredible sense of safety.
