About Gaia Gathering

At Gaia Gathering Inc., we offer unique equine healing modalities to illustrate parallel issues of trust, forgiveness, and threshold limits. Through exercises, we explore emotional intelligence skills for mindful decision-making and past grief healing. Some of our unique modalities include sound healing and guided meditations in the barn, ecstatic dancing with horses in the arenas, barnyard yoga, animal Reiki and massage, sweat lodge, flower bath, and positive reinforcement ridership workshops and clinics. 


About Starr Horse Retreats and Arenas

Our primary facility is at Starr Horse Retreats and Arenas (SHRA) located east of Lake Tahoe in the verdant Carson Valley. SHRA is a 30-acre equestrian facility with four arenas, a 10-stall horse barn, a workshop room, a 4-bedroom Bunk House, and a 3-bedroom Chalet dedicated to Gaia Gathering, Inc. events, classes, and retreats, and 30 acres of pasture with multiple obstacle courses for walking and riding. SHRA invites all curious and consciousness-based therapists and participants to explore the possibilities with us as we create a revolution in equine healing and education.
