About Laurie Higgins-Kerley
With Laurie as your facilitator, take a journey with Horse as co-facilitator to explore your inner landscape and reveal your authentic self.
After the loss of her husband in 2008, Laurie was grief-stricken and found profound healing from spending time with a small herd of horses at Dove Creek. The horses seemed to know that she was vulnerable and sad and showed this to her by coming close as if they were snuggling her, offering a more intimate way of connecting as if they were inviting her to become a part of the herd. This was a salve for her broken heart and eventually her insight and reflection ignited a desire within her to assist them in "their world" and to offer this experience to others dealing with their own challenges.
Laurie’s enthusiasm for explorations into “the mystery of all life” is infectious. Her training includes Equine Facilitated Coaching and Learning, Native American Medicine Wheel teachings and techniques, Shamanic healing ways and ceremonies, energetic chakra clearing through Pleiadian Lightwork, and Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training. She has facilitated, hosted, and led workshops on Medicine Wheel teachings, drumming circles and ceremonies for the last 20 years.
Laurie founded the non-profit organization, Dove Creek Equine Rescue in 2012 and has been Executive Director of it since. Horses are rescued, rehabilitated, retrained, and rehomed. Because of her experiences there, Laurie wanted to create a program focusing on the healing partnership between horses and humans. She graduated from Kathy Pike’s Coaching with Horses Certification Program in April 2017 and joyfully integrates her path to wholeness with this powerful heart-centered approach; exploring the authentic expression and inner wisdom within each one of us who walk this walk with her.
Laurie creates a custom experience for each client by drawing from the fibers of her own personal weave of healing and mastery from the various modalities in which she has trained. Her fun loving personality and deeply compassionate spirit coalesce with her life-long commitment to assist others in their evolution. The result is a one-of-a-kind experience for those ready to live their best Life!
