Intrigued and want to learn more?


I’ve never been to a retreat before. How do I prepare?

Do things that make you feel more relaxed, such as practicing mindfulness meditation, yoga, or walking in nature. The more you can ease into a relaxed state, the more receptive you are likely to be to the experience once you arrive.

On a more practical level, have weather appropriate clothing (check the forecast for Lafayette GA). For working with horses you will need closed toed shoes that fit snugly and securely on your feet. You will also need to bring some yoga clothes, boots, comfortable walking shoes. Plan to dress in layers as the temperature can fluctuate throughout the day and we’ll be doing indoor and outdoor activities.

How many people will be there with me?

A maximum of three people can book a Breakthrough Weekend together at one time.

Will I have my own bedroom and bathroom?

There are three different levels of accommodations available, from private to semi-private. Please contact Susan for more information.

Is there ongoing support offered to keep me accountable and focused on my intentions after the retreat ends?

Yes! We will have a call before and after the weekend.

Will there be gluten free options provided?

With advanced notice, all dietary needs can be met.

What if I get sick, or something comes up and I can't attend? Can I get a refund?

Refunds for documented medical illness will be made until 10 days prior to your Breakthrough Weekend.

I have experienced retreats in the past in different countries in South America and few states in the USA. It is the first time that I feel true healing (yes, there were things that I experienced for the first time) and maybe that’s what made this weekend, this experience, so unique and unforgettable.

Thank you Susan M for offering this amazing place to heal, to connect, and to feel that the sky is the limit. The energy in the house felt so comfortable. The little pets in the house made it feel like I was home. The experience with the horses (Lola) was so unique, I felt she knew me, and the confidence I felt with the horses was so unique.

The food was delicious, the mindfulness exercises with Susan were soothing, and the art time and conversation was something I will bring in my heart for long time.

Thank you so much Susan for opening your farm to experience peace and abundance.
