Labyrinth Insight Sessions.
A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that combines the circle, which relates to wholeness, and the spiral, which represents journey and change, into a purposeful path.
Walking the labyrinth can serve as a journey to our own center, and then back out into the world again; and offer insights, clarity, serenity, and peace, as well as a sense of connection, resilience and wholeness.
Labyrinth proponents claim walking a labyrinth can lead to stress reduction, greater presence, clarity and creativity; deeper relationships, a stronger sense of community, a feeling of being on a spiritual journey, a sense of inner reflection and connection to sources of guidance.
Standing at the entryway to the path can be like standing at a threshold; by giving yourself an opportunity to listen as you embrace a question for yourself to explore deeper; and to let the path and nature support you in discovering the answer.
If you are wishing to create something new in your life, or just interested in seeing something with fresh eyes, guided Labyrinth Insight Sessions are available by scheduling here.

How to walk the labyrinth:
Standing at the entryway, start by getting present: Noticing: What is in me? What is in the environment around me?
Bring to mind a particular question to contemplate for the walk to the center, hold it lightly. As you walk, feel free to pause along the path. Stay in the center for as long as you would like, and return the same path out, integrating what you noticed.
If you do not have a specific question, you might want to ask for guidance: “I am open to receiving guidance about… ”.
Whether you walk the labyrinth for stress reduction, problem solving or spiritual transformation there is no right way and no wrong way to journey on this path.

“When Brad is facilitating with the horses, he is in his element: calm, confident, curious. He is fully present, and trusts that people will get what they need. He is not efforting and is a strong yet gentle guide. I have seen so many people walk away from conversations with him as if they have let go of a huge weight they were carrying around for much too long. It is really quite beautiful.”

“I’ve been a professional Firefighter/ Paramedic for 18 years. After an on the job injury and a bad divorce I found myself extremely suicidal. My alcoholism was at an all time high and my life was unmanageable. Equine Therapy has been an essential part of my journey of healing. Brad Gallup facilitated my time spent with these spiritual, beautiful animals. I can hardly put into words my experience in the round pen with the horse while facilitated by Brad. His wisdom far exceeded any expectations I had and helped me process and grieve trauma. Thank you for sharing your amazing gift with me which is a direct result for the life I have today.”
