  • Private Magical Gong Journey
    This experience is great for those who traveled long hours especially across the ocean or country. It will help to feel more grounded and recover from jet lag quickly. It is also great for stress relief and emotional balance restoration. Or if you want to experience something new and unique and need to connect to your Self on deep level this is for you! We start with a short guided meditation which helps you start to feel comfortable and more relaxed. You will be sitting in chair or laying down on yoga mat whatever is more comfortable for you. Feel free to bring your own yoga mat, but I do have extras. Then you will be surrounded by sound of six gongs. After few minutes you will enter a meditative state and your own inner experience. The sound of gong penetrates, cleans, invigorates, rejuvenates, and connects you to your soul, your highest infinite self. Discover what will be yours. There will be time after the session to allow you to slowly come back to the present moment and fully awaken. Other things to note If you are allergic to cat consider to take your medicine. I have a cat who usually does not bother, but sometimes comes to check out after session.

  • FUN on the MINI-RANCH
    During the 2-hour experience, guests will enjoy Smokey's Run Mini-Ranch! First, we'll have a 'Meet & Greet' with Gordie and Ginseng the ranch's sweet and silly Nigerian Dwarf goats, where I will share fun facts about goats that you never knew! Then all together we will take a golf cart tour of the working mini-ranch, always a highlight! Enjoy a fun ride on the trails while learning what it takes to keep a mini-ranch going day-to-day! Then, we'll pet and groom our favorite miniature horse, Buster! He's a very sweet and semi-retired driving pony, and a famous favorite of the mini-ranch! I will show you how to care for a miniature horse and you'll have the opportunity to get to know Buster better, and to understand horse care in general. Once Buster is brushed and looking his best, he'll be ready to harness up to his cart for a demonstration of what he used to do (all the time) in 'his glory days!' And you'll learn some interesting things about 'driving horses' that you often see in parades. Near the end of the experience, we'll relax on the covered patio next to the riding ring and enjoy a refreshing cold drink and tasty snack watching Buster and his goat buddies, all the while taking in the peaceful tranquility of Smokey's Run Mini-Ranch. I can't wait to host you! **Inquire about customizing this experience for BIRTHDAY PARTIES, for your private group!!
