No matter how good you are at hiding things from yourself and others, your nervous system still involuntarily broadcasts what you’re really feeling - at a frequency horses are especially good at tuning into.
— Linda Kohanov, Riding Between The Worlds

What is Experiential Learning?

The Sanctuary at Alyce’s Place applies leading edge modalities in the field of Experiential Learning and Healing with Horses which are innovative approaches to self-development and growth.

Why Horses?

Horses have a strong, natural desire to be of service and to interact with people. Given that horses are teachers and healers, they possess a keen, highly perceptive intuition that helps us close the gap between how we actually present ourselves to others and how we think we are being.

The Sessions

.At the Sanctuary we offer a variety of different equine experiential and healing modalities from which you may choose from allowing you to personalize your experiential learning with horses experience.

Kamille has also enjoyed a very rich and diverse professional life spanning over 30 years that has taken her from health care and aquatic safety to the criminal and civil legal fields to sales and marketing of real estate for individuals and large corporations. Kamille has taken her passion and diverse professional expertise and created a safe and sacred space here at The Sanctuary for people to come and fully embrace and experience the transformative nature of experiential learning and healing with horses and all that this platform has to offer to those seeking: a deeper understanding of themselves; a transformative self-actualizing experience; and/or simply another arena in which to realize that "next level" manifestation either personally and/or professionally.

"Kamille is a gifted facilitator for equine assisted work and truly understands the power of horses as healers. She walks her talk and is and has always been committed to her own personal growth. Her horses are respected and treated as partners in her practice, rather than tools of the trade.  Kamille and I share paths and I am honored to know her and to have worked with her."
