Out of Darkness into the Light is a one day spiritual workshop to guide you as you re-discover your passion for life again through story, Native tradition and interactive time with horses.

Sessions guided and coached by Native American awakening guide Sarah Charuk.  Guest speaker Tammy Buckellew will share her powerful story of coming out of her dark night of the soul and how the horses assisted her in this journey.  Tammy’s book Out of Darkness into the Light will be available or you can order through Amazon (Rosedog Books). You will be able to be one on one with a sentient horse to experience their healing ability through reflective grooming and walking the labyrinth.  (All work with horses is on the ground no riding)

Our beautiful horses are waiting to meet you!  Each has their own unique personality and way of being to help you move forward. Have you lost your sense of direction and passion? Their presence is welcoming and satisfying as they help open new doors of discovery.  You too can come out of the darkness into the light.
