reminiscent of Cirque du Soleil, but with horses as the

beautiful horses. It is igniting a spark in audiences across
the Northern Continent in consistently sold-out and extended
shows. More than a circus, more than a show, Cavalia, is a

For 30 years, I have had the privilege of guiding others on
such journeys through some of the Earth’s great tapestries
of landscape and light. A journey into nature, dedicated to
personal inquiry is a unique and rare undertaking in the
rush of modern living. Its origins date back to traditional
wisdom, which encouraged and enabled others to set aside
time for deep introspection, clarification, and spiritual
renewal in a natural setting. It is a way of adventure,
solitude, beauty, and communion; a path that can reveal to
us what we most value.
