WorldLifestyle.com recently spoke with our Creator of Equine Programs, Wyatt Webb, about his unique Equine Experience at Miraval. We love what he had to say:
“What makes this particularly powerful is that horses aren’t genetically programmed to be around people. They don’t want anything from us. They read the energy of the people and things they’re around, and they determine whether it’s safe or unsafe,” Webb explains. “So for them to cooperate, they need to determine the safety levels for that. If someone is being disingenuous or hiding something, the horse won’t cooperate. Only when people are being genuine does the energy flow.”

Wyatt began facilitating group therapy sessions in 1991 and has developed Miraval's signature Equine Experience over time. The Equine Experience provides profound insight into communication within relationships. Working on the ground with specially selected horses, guests begin to see patterns of learned behavior that may be working against them. Guests at Miraval can also join Wyatt for one of his four-day Equine Experience Immersions. Wyatt will devote six hours each day of very focused personalized attention to help participants challenge learned behaviors, correct false beliefs, and rediscover their authentic self.

We were so excited to have Chef Rebecca Rather at Miraval this past weekend as part of our Celebrity Chef Series! Chef Rather led participants through a gourmet, five-course meal during two Cooking Demonstration Dinners (see menu). Here are some of our favorite photos of Chef Rather working with Executive Chef Justin Macy and the rest of the Miraval culinary team. Enjoy!
We are so excited to welcome Celebrity Chef Rebecca Rather at Miraval this weekend (Friday, August 2 & Saturday, August 3). A native Texan, Chef Rather makes the most of her Lone Star state’s varied traditions, whether looking to the kitchens of Texas' Mexican and German immigrants or to the cowboy culture of her own forebears. Best of all, her recipes aren't fussy—one of her best–selling cakes stirs together in a single saucepan. Add in a cupful of Texas attitude and her made–from–scratch–with–love philosophy and you've got an irresistible taste of American baking.
Seasonal Yoga Retreat with Julie Cielo
August 18-23, 2013
As the seasons change, so do we. Early cultures instinctively felt the natural rhythms and couldn't perceive a separation between self & nature. In our modern world, we have disconnected from these natural cycles of "being" and fallen out of tune with our organic pulse. Indian Summer is a special time of year at the end of summer and before Autumn. It is a period of preparation and readiness for the year's work. Join Yoga Therapist, Holistic Lifestyle Coach, and creator of the Lifestyle Movement called "Seasonal Yin Yang Flow", Julie Cielo on this 5 day Seasonal Yoga Retreat where we will take a closer look into how we reflect nature and how to better align with the natural cycles of change to stay healthy through this transitional period through diet, movement, and lifestyle.
We were absolutely thrilled to have Chef Brooke Williamson join us for the weekend at Miraval. Not only was she a hit in the kitchen with our culinary team but our guests loved learning from her during her (delicious!) cooking demonstrations. Here's some of the photos we captured of her visit cooking with Miraval's Executive Chef Justin Macy.
