Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley Teams Up with TRUE Leadership Equus Coaching
Indulge in personal wellness and experience horse human connection in this bespoke experience at One&Only’s first Nature Resort
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley has partnered with Dubai’s TRUE Leadership Equus Coaching to offer specially tailored packages. The exclusive retreat, taking place from 30 November until 3 December 2017 will be set on the 7,000-acre wildlife reserve within the Greater Blue Mountain Range of Australia. TRUE Leadership is offering a truly unique experience of Equus Coaching in a pristine natural setting at the ultra-luxury resort.
TRUE Leadership Equus Coaching is an immersive learning experience with horses that combines world-class life coaching with the timeless wisdom of the natural world. It is a rare opportunity to receive clear and direct feedback in a communication exchange with a horse, in order to gain a visceral awareness of the type of patterns that play out in all human relationships and in everyday life. A horse’s direct and honest feedback will deepen guests’ understanding of themselves, and with self-awareness, self-mastery will become possible. The herd will playfully share the ancient wisdom of the natural world, guiding guests back to self-empowered brilliance and help accelerate their lives with “horsepower.”
“When you connect with nature, you connect to your own TRUE nature, which is why Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is such an ideal destination to host this type of retreat. Disconnect from the stressors of everyday life and allow yourself to be immersed in the wild, breathtaking beauty of the Greater Blue Mountains region, and cocooned in ultra-luxury at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley,” says founder and Master Equus Coach, Kelly Eide, who will be leading the weekend. “The resort’s herd of horses will be your guides into that deep state of connection. That’s what you can expect during your stay; a powerful sense of the peace of nature surrounding you, calling to the peace, balance and harmony that lies within us all. You’ll be supported in every conceivable way and, through equus coaching, build practices to support yourself upon your return to daily life.”
A scenic 2.5-hour drive from Sydney, the resort is located between the Wollemi and Gardens of Stone National Parks, within the World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains region. Set on its own private 7,000-acre carbon-neutral wildlife reserve, the resort combines One&Only ultra-luxury style with a quintessentially Australian bush experience. The team at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley encourage guests to explore the region and have created an exciting menu of unique, outdoor activities; from guided horse riding, wildlife drives and nature walks, nocturnal night safaris and mountain biking to star gazing and colonial heritage tours. For the energetic, there is even the chance to participate in the conservation work on the property. Those seeking adventure need only check in with their personal retreat adventure guide who will recommend activities and experiences specific to each guest’s needs.
Wolgan’s wilderness oasis is home to thousands of marsupials and a staggering array of birdlife, so guests who venture out are likely to encounter wombats, wallabies, kangaroos and wallaroos, and nocturnal marsupials including gliders and possums, as well as many of Australia’s unique bird species such as parrots, kingfishers, finches and waterfowl. Guests have many opportunities to engage with this unique landscape and can choose from a wide range of complimentary experiences and activities such as the Guided Nature Walk, Wolgan Wildlife Drive and Nocturnal Spotlighting.
The TRUE Leadership Equus Coaching package is available from 30 November to 3 December as well as 15 to 18 June 2018, and includes accommodation in a Heritage Villa with pool, all meals, Equus and nature-based sessions twice a day, videography of the sessions, private coaching sessions before and after the retreat, personalised daily practices, evening fire circles, signature sunset wildlife tour and a choice of 60-minute spa treatment or trail ride through the bushland.
