One of ROTH’s most popular retreats, Healing Horses at the Historic Bitterroot Ranch in Dubois, WY, came and went in early June. Dubois is located in the niche below the intersection of two great mountain ranges: the volcanic Absarokas, spilling eastward from Yellowstone, and the southeastward-ranging Wind River Mountains, the tallest mountain range in Wyoming. Students from across the US gathered amidst the peaks and the Wind River as they mingled with the horses, spending time within the herd, reading the horses’ energies, answering their requests for healing, and helping to interpret their registers.
One of the biggest hits of Anna’s Healing Horses classes is the Love Lessons. When we connect with the horse’s heart chakra, they can express emotion through us that they otherwise would not be able to. Consequently, we can experience our own healing by being the channel for their emotional release. Love begets love, and love lessons beget love lessons!
Here are some images from this year’s Healing Horses at the Bitterroot Ranch Retreat along with what our students had to share about their experience:

Learning the life-changing art of Reiki in their incredible, beautiful landscape was, quite simply, transformational.
Donna P. of WV
Authentic connection and magical transformation – this was the result of my reiki experience with Anna Twinney. Join the tribe/herd and let the magic begin!

Everyone told me this week would change my life…. They were right! Everyday was life lessons learned, but the most amazing day was the day I gave Reiki to a young Arabian Stallion. Life-changing! He taught me so much about being present in the moment and listening! I know when I get home my horses will thank him. Blessings to Anna, all the members of my group, and the Bitterroot Ranch!

The beauty of the retreat location was matched by the grace and intensity of the teachings. I am confident I will be bringing back to my ranch a very useful and unique practice for my animals.
Sally W. of MA
What I loved best were the reiki Attunements, which, for me, were the most spiritual aspect of the retreat. I also loved the opportunity to give Reiki love to the horses while they were in a corral. (There were many more horses there than I could connect with!) At one point I was surrounded by 5 horses all wanting Reiki love.

To walk into a herd of 80-100 horses and have them choose you…what an exhilarating experience and I will not top that for awhile! Giving to the horses is amazing!
Richard J. of VA
From staff to clinician, everyone was extremely helpful and informative. I will be able to use most of all the information in my present employment. Thank you.
Sydney B. VA
If you ware feeling closed down in our modern world, in this clinic you will feel your heart grow at least 10 sizes BIGGER! NO MORE GRINCH! Great for all levels of experience.

I came to Bitterroot Ranch with Anna here because I truly needed emotional, spiritual and physical healing. I am so blessed that I got even more than I could have ever expected. My advice to you would be to trust the flow of how Anna works – that’s what made my life lesson shine through. The bond and friendship with all the others n the class is priceless. I am truly healed and this experience has and will change my life forever. Much love to all here: horses, dogs, staff, friends, others and Anna!
The week began early for our Reiki Master students who arrived in advance for their Master Attunements and to access the new information they would be using out in the world as they begin their journeys as Master Healers. From selecting oils for attunements to master healing sessions, truly a transformational experience was had by all…even by the curious onlookers.
From our Reiki Master, Christine M. of wherever the wind takes her…
The idyllic setting of the Bitterroot Ranch added to the magic of this wonderful, week-long, experiential retreat. Being immersed in nature and surrounded by beauty from the moment we stepped out of our gorgeous log cabins was an absolute joy. Totally loved sharing Reiki with the lovely group of people on the retreat, energy healing with the horses and the spectacle of a 200 odd herd making their way up to higher pastures every evening. The absolute highlight for me though was receiving the Reiki Master attunement with the energy of the elements all around us and the horses coming in to share their energy and healing as well. It truly was a remarkable and magical experience. Heartfelt thanks to Anna for creating this fabulous event. Would do it again tomorrow!
