Sally Nilsson, Eric Kolesar and the rest of the Tula Vida horse and human team are partnering with Nora Kenney to offer this special retreat of rest, restoration and rejuvenation to recover from the stresses of the last months and create space for, and feel ready for, what we want to come next.


Immerse yourself in nature.  Experience authentic connection.  Discover what horses can teach us about how to tap into our own energy so that we can be the best version of ourselves…

Renew your mind, body and spirit!

Many of us have spent the last year surviving rather than thriving.  Nature continues to grow and flourish in its magnificence and is the ideal place for us to calm our spirits and soothe our bodies and minds. 

In this reflective workshop, you will join our extraordinary horses in their home - the vibrant green fields, rivers and rainforest near the Arenal volcano in Costa Rica – and experience becoming part of the herd, fully connected to yourself, the horses and the natural world. 

  • Explore creating relationship and connection with a sensitive being who has 56 million years of wisdom living together in harmony with his herd, his environment and the constantly changing world.

  • Learn tangible take-home tools to balance your nervous system and restore your sense of energy and peace, and fine-tune these with the horses.

  • Let the horses support you in uncovering any blocks to feeling more joy, purpose or fulfilment.

  • Cherish and nourish your body with healthy food, gentle movement designed to get your energy flowing, beautiful natural surroundings, restorative wood-fire sauna and healing massage. 

  • Feel your life force return little by little…
