Equine Assisted Meditation
This 45 minute group session is led by our Mental Health Practitioner, Laurie Giannola, LCSW-R.
This experience is open to all those who want to experience a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health. This class will guide you through relaxation, refocusing your attention, staying centered and keeping inner peace.
This is a group setting where we gather amongst our herd of horses outside in nature. We invite you to open your heart and minds and allow our horses to bring you exactly what you need!

Laurie Giannola is a mindfulness-based clinical social worker who began her career over 20 years ago at an outdoor wilderness program for adjudicated adolescents. During this time, she had the privilege of working closely with the Crow Tribe of Montana, became certified in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and traveled through big sky country building tipis and learning wilderness survival skills.
Laurie has had the privilege of training in Mindful-Based Stress Reduction and attending workshops guided by Jon Kabat Zinn. Laurie went on to attend intimate workshops facilitated by Tara Brach, Jonathan Faust, Adyashanti, and became a certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Trainer with Sean Fargo, former Monk and official Instructor for Google’s mindfulness program. During what she calls her incredible journey through life, Laurie became a Master Level Reiki practitioner and certified in Ericksonian Hypnosis.
A deep love for Mother Earth, trails, and animals, combined with a passion for helping others, has led Laurie to guide others on a journey with horses where anything can happen.
