Entering The Healing Temple — A Day Of Sanctuary For Women

An Acoustic Evening of Songs and Stories (AND HORSES!) with John Oates

Entering the Healing Temple — A Day of Sanctuary for Women is a guided, many-layered journey that has the feel of a day-long ritual. When you come to the Temple, you are invited to surrender into receiving: to be nourished, supported, and witnessed within an intimate group of women. It is a focused, private event for a group of 15 women who are excited by the prospect of having sacred time, space, and the support of community to dive into their deeper work. The Healing Temple is a mostly silent day, where we are a living experiment in exploring how the process of transformation is accelerated by using multiple healing modalities — hands-on and hands-off — using a well-structured and facilitated format. Eight staff, our therapy horses, and the beautiful backdrop of our farm serve the women who participate in the journey.

An Acoustic Evening of Songs and Stories (AND HORSES!) with John Oates

Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga is thrilled to host a benefit concert played by John Oates! Oates was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2004, and in 2014 was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as a member of Daryl Hall & John Oates. His memoir, Change of Seasons, was published in 2017. John is an avid horseman who believes in the mission we are serving here at THS and all proceeds from this concert will go to the betterment of horses in aftercare that are aiding to heal people right here in our community.

Old Tavern Farm Winery will be offering wine, and Artisanal Brew Works will offer beer. We will have Pizza available by Fierros Pizza Truck as well as offerings by Spring Street Deli.
