LIFE WHEEL – A WOMAN'S INNER JOURNEY AND UNLOCKING OF THE BLUEPRINTS OF EMOTIONAL FREEDOM
We offer a three session holistic healing programme for women that supports awareness and understanding of:
o Life patterns (LPs)
o Associated emotions
o Belief systems
o Age of pattern imprinting
o Pathways of healing
We believe that an understanding of the WHEN, WHY and WHAT triggers on our path towards emotional freedom and healing are keys that illuminate the patterns of our lives.
Life is deeply relational in nature. To expand our awareness of what informs our relationships to ourselves and everything around us requires the ability to deepen into a still and receptive state, a state of being. It is from this state that we are then able to form real connections and authentic relationships – with ourselves, with others, and with the world around us.
This journey work takes place with the support of nature and with horses as guides. Your horse partner serves as your diagnostic wizard and represents your relationship to your own emotional freedom and healing. There is no riding of the horses and no prior experience with horses is required.
In partnership, you walk beside the horse within a crystal Life Wheel, and in this process the horse will mirror and reveal blocks and energetic imprints locked within your own body and energetic field.
Horses gift us with the opportunity to return to a primal, non-verbal state of awareness and allow us to see ourselves in the moment. They can act as ’divine mirrors’, reflecting back to us the energy of our emotions. For a horse, there is only the present moment, without any agenda and without expectations, and they respond to what lies in our hearts, not in our heads.
The Life Wheel has a hidden grid that has been mapped to specific LPs, associated emotions, belief systems, age of imprinting, current area of impact and the priority healing for further integration and support.
3 Sessions of 1hr, 2hrs and 1hr respectively.
No riding of the horses and no prior experience with horses is required.
Guided process and meditation work will be given for deepening the work between sessions.
Support from The African Tree Essences (http://africantreeessences.co.za) and Essential Oils is included for integrating the experiences.
Sessions take place on a beautiful private farm in Noordhoek, Cape Town.
A personal journal will be provided with session notes so that we may connect the dots and weave a thread of understanding of your embodied life stories that seek acknowledgement and healing through acceptance and unconditional love.

Olivia Badach, the owner of The Human Spiral, is an accredited Insights Discovery© and Team Effectiveness licensed practitioner and has been working with this model for 6 years. The Insights model is a depth psychology tool that supports a deeper understanding of individual personality preference and group dynamics.
Her keen interest in people began with her studies in Industrial Psychology and Sociology at UNISA. She continued this journey by completing the Master I, II and III part 1 and 2 coach training through Creative Consciousness© and has focused on EQ skills development in the corporate sector for the past 11 years. Combining these with her Jungian dream group experiential training, she creates powerful workshop experiences that connect participants to the subtleties of their internal conversations and how these might be mirrored by the external environment.
Olivia holds a diploma in craniosacral therapy and is a practising therapist registered with the Craniosacral Therapy Association of South Africa (CSTSA). With her keen interest in birth, she certified and practised as a WOMBS doula for a period of time and later completed her Womb Awakening 9 Moons Apprenticeship with The Fountain of Life (Womb College).
A key focus of her work is learning to live from the heart and developing an understanding of and clarity about what supports connection to self, others and the world in which we live. Olivia is committed to empowerment through self-expression and authenticity and began her transformational journey with horses in 2013.
Nicola Michl, is one of the founding members of the Equinox Trust, which facilitates empowerment programmes for communities and individuals in need.
Nicola’s deep connection with horses began in early childhood and she has worked with them extensively over the past 20 years, from stable yard management, teaching riding, training horses and running horse trails. Through this experience, she began to notice the great healing qualities that these animals have to offer.
Her interest in a holistic approach to healing began at university with her interest in Psychology and Philosophy, as well as Quantum Physics. She studied to become a certified natural healer and counsellor and is a registered Ethnic Health Care Practitioner with the Natural Healers Association (NHA). She has a BA Honours degree in Fine Art from UCT and has also completed the Part 2 certification of the EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) model and is currently completing the advanced certification.
After 9 years of working as an equine assisted therapist, she feels that horses are offering us the opportunity to expand our awareness and make changes to create better and more meaningful lives.
Beyond the veils of language and the noise of activity, the most profound events of our lives take place in those fleeting moments where something else shines through, something that can never be fixed in language, something given as quietly as the gift of your next breath. — John O’Donohue
