In 2016, I traded my city life for beautiful Vancouver Island, BC, where I now operate Trailblazers alongside my partner Isabelle Mercier (Day 59). Trailblazers is a magical 5-acre equestrian retreat centre where business leaders come from around the world to take a time-out to focus on their business, their brand, and what is holding them back from owning their genius and growing themselves, their team, and their business to the next level. A place and an opportunity designed to empower people who are ready for personal and business growth breakthroughs.
Horses are experts in leadership and authentic living. Their wisdom and lack of ego is a true gift to anyone wishing to grow personally and professionally. In fact, we find them so powerful as teachers, they are the reason we created Trailblazers Estate.
Because horses are prey animals, they are required to be hypersensitive and intuitive to their environment for their survival. They need to be able to determine the difference between a hungry cougar approaching and one that is just passing by. They do this by reading the intention of the cougar in their space to know what is going on for their survival. If they fled every time something came near, they would be exhausted for when they really do need to run away.
Horses do the same with us. They are constantly reading our energy to determine our true intentions for their survival and mirror what they are sensing. They also have a psychological impact on us. Because they are such large animals, we need to be more present around them. This allows us to build an inner sensitivity to what is going on for us in their presence.
This powerful combination creates a sensitive, vulnerable, and safe space to facilitate a coaching experience through an equine partnership. My training allows me to interpret the horses’ behaviour in your presence and communicate it to you in a way that will trigger valuable insight and personal discovery for you and/or your team.
As a certified equine-facilitated coach, along with my 25+ years of experience working closely with people and getting to understand how they think and function through brand development and implementation, I am determined to help people live and operate by design to increase their units of happiness. In addition to the retreats at Trailblazers and the equine work (as well as the very popular virtual versions of these experiences through the pandemic), I also pursue this mission through my writing and online programs. My latest endeavours are an Amazon Bestselling Book, Sitting On The Fence – How To Love Without Limits [https://leapzone.lpages.co/book/]and an online program co-hosted with my partner Isabelle, The Mindset Mastery Code [https://leapzone.lpages.co/mindset-mastery-code-info-page/]. Both help you to explore and expand your sense of self and of life…and most importantly what you desire from both. After all, if you can think it, you can feel it, and if you can feel it, you can create it.
