Hello and welcome to our first newsletter for 2024. We’ve been quiet for a while, keeping very busy with work, exploring new avenues and also making opportunities to rest.

I’m feeling really excited about this year, as I have some great ideas to help you connect more with yourself, with others and with the world around you. I’m looking forward to sharing my learning about embodied therapy and somatic experiencing with you, as I feel confident you will enjoy the benefits of this as much as I have. Some of the forthcoming events will involve indoor work, music and movement and some will be outdoors working with Macaroon and Biscotti, so I hope there will be something for everyone.

As we are still in the middle of winter (and it certainly has got a lot colder recently), you might not be feeling ready to launch yourselves into the year and that is absolutely fine. Listen to what your body is telling you and think about how best to cater for your needs.

Our first Circle of Connection will take place on 10 February, just after Imbolc and the new moon. This is a perfect time to start nurturing the seeds you’ve sewn and plan the next steps in your personal growth. Our gathering will focus on setting some intentions for the year ahead and will help to get your creative thinking flowing, so you can identify how to reach where you want to be.

We’d love to have you join us, so please book early to avoid disappointment. We will meet in Trellech, from 13:30 to 15:30 and will be outdoors, so wrap up warmly! For more information, contact me: info@therapywithhorses.co.uk.

If you are feeling like you need more one-on-one time to focus on yourself, make that investment and take the time to spend exploring and reflecting, with the dedicated support of myself and the ponies.

We wish you all a year filled with tranquillity, love, laughter and magical moments.

Warmest regards

Julie, Macaroon and Biscotti
