Sandi is an Animal Communicator and photographer, and is trained in Crystal Healing, REIKI, and Parelli Natural Horsemanship.

When life throws you lemons, make lemonade and… SHARE IT WITH OTHERS! HEART Retreat is my lemonade that I want to share with you!

My husband Craig and I have been together for 16 years. We have been blessed with a lovely and very talented daughter, Breanna. We play together as a family running the farm. My mother, Marilyn, will be joining us full time very soon. She is part of our egg management team and our brilliant llama herder!

I reside with my lovely and supportive family at the retreat.

My dream of an equine healing centre started to materialize in 2007 - the most challenging year of my life. I lost two very important influences in my life, my father and Sandaro, my equine partner of 33 years. The idea came to me as I was driving home from my father’s funeral. I believe he and Sandaro whispered the idea into my ear. I was walking the tight rope of consciousness. I had two choices, wallow in sorrow as a victim or rise to the challenge of being a survivor.

I am certified Level 3 in Parelli Natural Horsemanship and I have over 35 years experience in the equine field. I hope this isn’t the part where you have to disclose your age because like everything, how old or young you are depends on what you are being compared to. I have been blessed with the gift of being able to communicate with animals and I am trained in REIKI. I love working with crystals and find them very powerful and helpful in my energy work.

I share the photography for HEART Retreat with the very talented professional equine photographer Leslie Town. I have always had a love for horses and have been totally thrilled that they are still a very big part of my life.

I send gratitude to the universe for planting the seed of the equine therapy journey. It is my honour to nurture it. I also thank the universe for introducing me to Lynsea and Rosanne. I know that I have been given this message to help people find their path to an incredible journey that has endless possibilities for happiness. All you have to do is believe, trust and let go.

I am looking forward with great anticipation for our paths to cross and to share your journey with you. Thank you in advance for allowing me to be a part of your transformation. As you will find out by attending HEART Retreat, HORSES ARE MAGICAL!! But it’s not just the horses - there’s more, so come and see for yourself.

Hi and welcome to my services page, I have been blessed with the ability to communicate with animals. With this ability, I have been able to find a missing dog that was lost in the nature trail close to our farm and reunite him with his owners. I have been able to see a dog chase a bear away from his family. And of course I love the house tours I have been on with the pets! :o) Not to mention a conversation with a turtle that loves aromatherapy.

I offer my gift to anyone needing my assistance or service.
$60.00 per session for animal communication.


I have recently received my “Reiki I” this is another service that I am honoured to offer. If you are interested in booking a session with the horses and I, and would also like to receive a Reiki treatment, please contact me.

Book a private session with me: An initial introductory session is 2 hours minimum and costs $75.00. Each session after that is $60.00. You can choose however many sessions you want and when you want them. These sessions are approximately 1 hour in length. Or, you can join me and HEART Retreat’s practitioners for a day or a weekend.
