Letting Go 2024

Returning to Your Essence

Letting Go 2024

July 28th – August 1st, 2024

This is the place where you can let go. Ride on the gorgeous 25,000 acre Montana ranch and discover your strengths within. Connect with your fellow guests and the horses in a natural environment that is conducive to inner exploration and growth.  The horses living in open acreage herds bring an opportunity for each individual to experience the Equine Gestalt work at its fullest.  You will find a unique connection between Equine Gestalt group work in the morning and the balance with nature and your horse in the afternoon as you ride through the breathtaking landscape.

Linda Bruce

Linda owns and runs Soulful Prairies. As an Equine Gestalt Practitioner, her passion is bringing humans and horses together to create an environment of self-discovery. When she is not seeing clients, she offers other healing services to the visitors at Soulful Prairies.

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.
