Compassion Advocate. Equine Gestalt Coach. Equus Light Worker.
Rie Butler is a huge advocate for self compassion as she knows through personal experience that once you find and nurture it only then can you begin to heal on all levels. Her experience includes working with an accredited program in Equine-Facilitated Psychotherapy and Learning, and having spent many hours with this therapy herd of horses, she has developed a belief that horses have much to teach us and have a profound capacity to heal the human heart. It is a strong felt belief that her Spiritual guides have led her on this path to do this transformative work. A mission where she can honor and partner with horses as being the true gift to her clients. She has been blessed to have many horses impact her life over the years and currently owns a colt that has touched her heart – a horse she knows is willing and capable of helping her clients to achieve an inner peace and establish true self compassion.
Rie is a graduate of The Touched By a Horse® Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® Certification Program. She operates her retreats out of several beautiful farms across the United States to implement her work with women who are wanting to remove their blocks and negative inner chatter so that they too can move forward in their own lives of purpose.
Additionally, Rie is an avid Yogi. She received her 200 hour Yoga Teacher certification in 2011 and often incorporates a gentle yoga practice in her retreats.
