Our Animals

“Those who teach the most about humanity aren’t always human.”

~ Donald L. Hicks

They are our greatest teachers and co-therapists, supporting the growth and healing of our diverse community.

Animals as our teachers

Every animal on the farm is a vital part of our vibrant community. Each animal has a unique story, personality, and the capacity to teach us valuable lessons about life, love, relationships and wellness. Through connecting with, and caring for our animals, we learn how to trust, respect and hold ourselves accountable. We explore sacred areas related to trust and vulnerability, knowing that our animals will never tell our secrets or shame us for our pasts. We learn how to set boundaries, be a confident leader, communicate effectively, show empathy and become more resilient. Through all of this, we learn how to care for others and how to better care for ourselves with kindness and compassion.

From horses, to guinea pigs, to goats, chickens and dogs.

And don’t forget the emus or Lola, the parrot!
