Equine Assisted Mindfulness This Saturday

Spend the day among green pastures and beautiful equines to learn more about mindfulness and the ability to tune in to the present moment and quiet the mind. Horses are constantly attuned to their environment and their behavior is based on the moment. Engaging in activities with horses allows for self-reflection, body awareness, mind-body alignment. Ideal for anyone who would like to acquire some valuable tools to help with STRESS REDUCTION AND INNER CLARITY.

In partnership with the Mind Body Awareness Project of Nashville and Integrative Life Center.

Saturday, May 19th 9am – 5pm

The Sage Horse Center at Chataway Farm in Leiper’s Fork, TN
