Spring Women's Retreat

So many people are paralyzed by fear in their lives, taking the path of least resistance, or retreating to comfort in a myriad of ways. These options may be easier but produce a life that is empty and without joy. Come and spend an afternoon 1-6pm, identifying your fears and creating goals to overcome them. We will be using the horses and the power of universality to begin the journey toward wholeness.

What is the price you have paid for living in fear?

What will it take to unravel your strongly held fears that keep you in bondage?

Retreat space is limited to twelve fearless women who want to move into the freedom and joy they have dreamed of. Register online at www.unbridledacres.com


New Addition to the Unbridled Acres Team

We want to welcome our newest friend to the herd. In March, MAC was donated to us by a friend of Unbridled Acres. Mary has experienced much healing in working with the horses and wanted others to help others do the same. She was especially touched by Princess ...our horse that died last spring. We are so happy to have another white horse and are very grateful to Mary for her tender heart.

Reverse SAD: Bright Days, Dark Moods

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a form of recurring depression in which the symptoms start and stop around the same time each year. Typically, they begin in fall or winter and subside in spring. But in about one out of 10 SAD sufferers, the pattern is reversed, with depression returning in the spring or summer. Common symptoms of reverse SAD include insomnia, irritability, restlessness, poor appetite, and weight loss. It's thought that this form of depression may be a reaction to higher heat and humidity, since traveling to a cooler locale sometimes brings relief.

Unfortunately, the very fact that spring is supposed to be a time of joy and renewal can highlight what's missing for those who aren't feelng that way. It's the "I'm the only one not having fun on spring break" effect, and it's bound to make someone who's already down feel even worse.

If you're in that group, there may be some comfort in knowing that you aren't the only one. Don't hesitate to reach out for help if you're struggling.
