The first session in Juli Lynch’s Epala Winter Equine Facilitated Transformation Workshop Series is scheduled for January 20 & 21, 2017 at Plum Lake Equestrian Center, Sayner, WI.  In this workshop we will take assessment of our personal vision and passion utilizing the Plum Lake herd to receive insight, direction, healing, and awareness of what needs to be let go of or released in order to be fully expressive and alive. Friday evening begins with a lecture and wine & cheese reception at 6:30p.m. followed by an interactive workshop on Saturday from 9a.m.-1p.m.  Friday night lecture is available without Saturday equine interactive workshop.  Lecture & reception only is $50.00.  Friday evening and Saturday workshop is $175.00.  Lodging is available at the lakefront rental home Friday night for $30/person.  To register, contact Debra at 715-542-3742 or plumlakedressage@gmail.com.  Credit cards accepted subject to 3% fee.  To learn more about Juli Lynch and the Epala program, visit www.epala.org.
