Imagine a serene Pacific Northwest morning at Believe & See Ranch, an urban oasis nestled near Golden Ears Provincial Park.  Birdsongs harmonize with garden waterfalls as you savor morning coffee by the pond, connecting instantly with the women in your sharing circle, feeling like lifelong friends despite having just met.

Amidst graceful willows and majestic maples, the horses await. As your eyes meet theirs, a profound connection, a promise of peace and belonging, steals your breath. Moving closer, the comforting scent of horses envelops you, anchoring you in the present.  One horse, in particular, captivates your attention, its unwavering focus igniting curiosity: "Is this my muse? What wisdom does he hold for me?"

The day is enriched with powerful and energizing leadership lessons where intuition leads and nature speaks, the warm wind and gentle energy of the horses transport you to a portal of self discovery and empowerment

Here, you're not just learning but living, — feeling connected to the earth, fully in your body, the strength of the horses mirroring the power within you, leading you towards a legacy woven with purpose and heart

A Tranquil Oasis Awaits You

You've stepped into a realm of transformative growth.
The Portal between what is, and what could be.


All of our activities with the horses are done on the ground and at your comfort level for proximity.  

While most exercises are done at liberty (free roaming) in the fields or paddocks, if you're feeling nervous or unsure around horses, they can be modified to be on a rope & halter or over the fence with no impact to the profound and transformational experience.

Do you sometimes feel like you're straddling 2 worlds? The life and success you've already created, vs the evolving vision you have for your life that aligns with your deepest purpose and legacy

Do you want to be able to step back from the day to day operations, freeing you up to pursue purpose driven projects that reflect your deepest (even perhaps secret) ambitions?  

Are you ready to harness the power of a leadership style that's gracefully assertive and confidently feminine? One that is not only effective, without pushing people away, but also ensures your income continues to grow, reflecting a level of personal impact, prosperity and freedom?

Are You feeling the call to something more? 

Do You Love Horses?

Is it time for you to explore, embrace and express your creative and spiritual side in your work, free from fear of judgment? Or perhaps take what you're already doing deeper?

Do you wish to amplify your influence and impact, being known as leader amongst your peers, inspiring a ripple effect of positive change in your community and beyond?

Do you dream of mastering the art of creating the space for work, family and personal avocations to coexist beautifully and create a fulfilling purposeful life?

And last but not least.....

Listen to Your Inner Yes!

YES To All of It!
>>Sign Me Up<<

If you are hearing and feeling the "yes" to any of these questions - it's time to go deep and listen and learn from your inner wisdom.

Horses, with their innate ability to read and respond to our emotions and energy, serve as profound mirrors to our inner selves. They offer invaluable lessons in authenticity, communication, and self-awareness.  These equine partners become catalysts for growth and clarity, guiding us on a transformative journey of leadership, self-discovery, and creative & spiritual awakening.

Then this retreat is for you

About Believe & See Ranch

Our Ranch, a unique urban oasis, nestled on 2 acres, is located in Beautiful Maple Ridge BC, a Vancouver suburb,  home to the Katzie & Kwantlen First Nations  and also known as the "Horse Trail Capital of BC. The extensive trail network here dates back to the 1800's.

Our belief is that the land itself is a co-creator in healing and transformation, which is why we've created a space where you can connect with nature and your own inner wisdom. 

From the covered deck, comfy loungers by the pond, many different seating and meditation areas, to the fields and horse areas, It's a place where you can come to let go of the noise of the world, connect with nature, and find your center.

The name "Believe & See Ranch" reflects our deeply held beliefs about the power of intention and it extends an invitation to you as our guest, to allow yourself to believe that what you seek is also seeking you.

A living metaphor for transformation

The energy of the land, combined with our equine partners,
creates a one-of-a-kind opportunity for deep connection,
 personal growth, and a sense of serenity.

We recommend the Sandman Signature Langley Hotel , a 15-minute scenic drive from the Ranch, and an hour Uber ride from Vancouver International Airport

For your convenience,  we arrange daily transportation between the Sandman and the Ranch, ensuring a seamless retreat experience

You'll have a beautiful and peaceful drive in each morning, taking in the views of the Golden Ears Mountains and the tranquility of watching cows graze in the pastures of local dairy farms (yes, including the Jersey cows) belonging to families that have been in Maple Ridge for generations. 

As nearby hotel options are limited, we advise reserving your space early to ensure comfort and peace of mind. The Sandman offers attractive rates and a flexible cancellation policy for your ease.

While you’re free to choose your preferred accommodation,  kindly note that our organized transport extends exclusively to and from the Sandman Hotel.

And why not extend your stay? Consider arriving a few days earlier or lingering a bit longer to explore the vibrant city of Vancouver. Or perhaps you want to take in a farm or wine tour of the Langley area.

Summer here is a symphony of urban elegance and natural splendor, from bustling cityscapes to tranquil mountains and the soothing ocean. It’s an opportunity to complement your retreat experience with the diverse beauty of British Columbia

A modern & Relaxing Space

 Perfect after a Transformative Day

Please make sure to book at the Sandman SIGNATURE Langley Hotel. Your  welcome package includes contact info so that you can be sure you're booking at the right location.

Horses co-regulate emotions in their herd like tuning forks, creating a profound sense of settling, bonding, and attunement. As you engage with them in gentle reflective activities, you'll personally experience this extraordinary connection—an indescribable feeling that's as powerful as it is poetic.

This immersion activates your parasympathetic nervous system, inviting in a deep and serene sense of calm, clarity, and creativity. Emotional barriers dissipate, and fresh ideas effortlessly surface as you release long-held limiting beliefs, opening up to new perspective and possibilities.

Within this reflective space, your leadership vision will crystallize, fortifying your courage release your self from the daily minutia, and to wholeheartedly embrace new and purposeful projects.

On this retreat, peace and sanctuary await as nature's whispers and the wisdom of horses gently guide your journey of self-discovery. Within this safe haven, you'll peel back the layers of your creativity and spirituality.

Often, our most profound insights and ideas remain hidden in the depths of our subconscious. Some realizations that emerge during reflective equine activities may not initially find words to express them.

Through meditation, visualization, and expressive arts, you'll explore these aspects and gain the confidence to weave them into your business identity as subtly or boldly as you desire.

Imagine the feeling of liberation and empowerment that comes with this process.  Not only does it offer a cathartic release, but it also plays a pivotal role in crafting a financially prosperous business that aligns your creative and spiritual self with your professional identity. By infusing your business with your authentic essence, you create a lasting legacy

Time Stands Still When You Are On "Horse Time"

"I had no idea it would reveal a couple of huge blind spots where I was holding myself back and what an impact that had been having on my business.

I came away with shedding a false identity and a renewed sense of trust and boldness which has already translated into generating more income in my business.

I will never forget this and am eternally grateful for this experience.

Captured Memories 

Our on-site photographer will be present to capture your memories. but they will be discreet and not interfere with your experience.

We pride ourselves on supporting local caterers and restaurants, bringing you an array of fresh, seasonal, and locally-sourced delights that not only tantalize your taste buds but also contribute to the local community.

We will be honoring the diverse culinary influences in Vancouver.  Expect a delightful array of dishes, including seafood, Asian-inspired flavors, hearty salads, plant based options, and a selection of savory appetizers, nutritious snacks, and grazing boards.

For those with a sweet tooth, you will absolutely love the local favorite, the Nanaimo bar, a local dessert that's a delightful blend of chocolate, coconut, and custard.

The Journey

The Journey

Day 2 to 4  is where you'll dive deep into the heart of our retreat experience. The daily pick up & drop off times for will be sent to you as we get closer to the date.

Breakfast, lunch, snacks and refreshments will be provided daily.

Each day unfolds with a blend of serene self-reflection and dynamic horse-led activities.

Closing Ceremony & Farewell

Closing Ceremony & farewell

Our last day together is an extended day.

Share reflections, celebrate growth, and solidify the bonds formed over these transformative days.

After we set intentions for what comes next, we'll share a heartfelt goodbye.

Your car will pick you up at 7:00 pm to return to your hotel

A beautiful fire is a great way to conclude our time together.  However this part of the ceremony is subject to any municipal or provincial burn bans that may be in effect, and so we cannot guarantee that we will have a fire

these Evenings Are Yours

These Evenings are yours

On Days 2 & 3 we conclude at approximately 4 pm.   Remembering we are on "Horse Time" we may go past this end time if the horses decide we need to.  However you will still have half an hour after concluding to enjoy the serenity of the Ranch before your ride picks you up.

You will still be dropped off early enough to explore local dining options, or enjoy the company of your new friends, or simply just go back to your room and journal and unwind. 

How you spend these 2 activity free nights, is up to you. However we do recommend an early night (especially on Day 2 as we have an extra early start on Day 3) and a good nights sleep so that you are refreshed and ready for the day's activities.   

Throughout the retreat, you'll find a harmonious blend of serenity and interaction. Moments of personal reflection intertwine with group activities, coaching sessions, and creative expressions.
The retreat's pace is intentionally unhurried, allowing you to fully engage with each experience and absorb every insight.

"I've worked with Nafissa for business strategy for years and she's helped me through some really tough personal patches that could have taken my business down, brought me clarity on mindset blocks, and so much more.

What had always seemed to escape me, though, was my big purpose... After the first day of our time at the ranch, I woke up at 4 am and I had it! .

I wrote 4 pages in my journal that morning, and I reread them regularly.

They keep me pointed in the right direction whenever I have big decisions and they get me going when I'm not feeling it that day.

The retreat was priceless, and I can't wait to go back"

""I was surprised at how quietly impactful my time with the herd was at Believe and See Ranch...."

I'm Chomping at the Bit

Did Someone Say "Bonuses"?

  • Beautiful professional photographs of the event (we will provide the guests a Dropbox link of the digital files of the best captures of the event) with full license that you may use as you wish.

"The Retreat was a transformational experience.   It was so much more than just a retreat... was a “deep dive” into breaking through what holds us back. I left with a renewed sense of self and an exciting action plan for the months ahead.

 Most impactful though was the incredible group of women and the inspirational shared experiences we had together. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!”

Your business/profession is about more than just mechanics and monthly milestones; it's about the essence of YOU – your authenticity, your presence, your impact, and your contribution.

You're eager to elevate your leadership and energetic communication skills and fully embrace your true power.

You appreciate the healing power of nature for connecting with your higher self but also value modern comforts.

You value experiential learning and growth, especially experiences that challenge and expand your perspective, requiring you to embrace discomfort and listen to its messages
You're open to being vulnerable with other women and are ready to receive powerful, life-transforming feedback from our horses to foster your growth.

Whether you're a seasoned horsewoman or a curious admirer or anything in between, you are drawn to the healing magic of horses.

You do not see your profession as a deeply personal expression of you, and would are looking for traditional business training focused solely on mechanics and milestones

Delving into your inner landscape and developing your leadership style isn't a priority for you right now.

You're not fond of being outdoors in nature for learning experiences. and prefer highly structured environments. 

You're looking for quick fixes and "how to" blueprints, rather than embarking on a journey of profound personal growth that challenges you to grow.

You are not open to exploring vulnerability, asking for help, receiving unbiased feedback, and surrendering to experiential learning and sharing.

You don’t like horses at all – you don’t have to love them, you can even be a little afraid of them, but if you have no desire to be around them, this retreat is not for you

Is this retreat for you?

It absolutely is if:

Do you have any Questions?

I've got answers!

Do we ride horses at this retreat?

Do we ride horses at this retreat?

All activities with horses will be on the ground, no riding. The horses will be either haltered or at liberty (free roaming) in the arena, paddocks, and pasture.  This is an incredible and life changing way to experience horses and connect with them on a whole different level, as your guide and muse, instead of a ride.

What if I have no horse experience or am afraid of horses?

What if I have no horse experience or am afraid of horses

Horse experience is not needed in order for you to experience their healing and transformation. They are here to be your guides, sages and healers.

All activities are supervised by myself or another equine professional, and can be modified to suit your comfort level with proximity. It is up to you how much or little you’d like to engage with the horses.  Also it's a good inner reflection to ask what this fear of horses is representing for you and how it's showing up in your life. 

Horses are big animals, how can i be sure i'll be safe?

Horses Are Big Animals, How Can I Be Sure I'll Be Safe?

Safety is our #1 priority.  For both horses and humans.

During our welcome reception you will participate in an in-depth safety briefing, and our facilitators are there to keep a close eye on everything.  We know our horses very well, and have spent thousands of hours training them, we will never put you in a situation that we feel is unsafe.  We also do not allow any unsafe behaviour from our guests.

Please remember that you are always in control of your own experience.   If at any time you feel uncomfortable, please speak up!  All exercises can be modified to suit your comfort level.

I'm an experienced rider how will I benefit?

I'm an experienced rider how will I benefit?

That's wonderful to hear! Your experience as a rider can add a rich dimension to your retreat experience.

As an equestrian, you already have a special connection with horses, and this retreat offers a unique opportunity to deepen that connection in a transformative way. 

This fresh perspective can profoundly impact how you relate to horses and yourself.  The retreat is designed for self-reflection and mindfulness, facilitated by the intuitive presence of horses. This experience can be especially poignant as it taps into and expands the unique bond you already share with these animals.

This retreat offers a chance to experience horses beyond riding. It's an opportunity to see how equine wisdom can influence all aspects of your life including your profession!.

As an equestrian, you'll find that engaging with horses in this context can be an eye-opening and heart-expanding journey, offering a different kind of fulfillment and learning that complements your existing equine experiences.

What if i have physical limitations?

What If I Have Physical Limitations?

All of our exercises with the horses can be adapted to accommodate physical limitations.

This can mean that some activities may require the horse to be haltered and held by a facilitator and not able to roam free, or if necessary it may mean the exercise is done over the fence.  Please be aware that if this is the decision of the facilitators it will be final. It is not meant to take away from  your experience, but rather to ensure it's safe and enjoyable for everyone.

The Heart Math Institute has shown that the horse's heart energy field extends at least 50 feet beyond their body.  The fence, or halter and lead rope, in this case is simply a physical barrier to keep you safe, energetically the horse is unaffected, and your experience will still be profound and transformational

I already have my own mentor, is this for me?

I already have my own mentor, is this for me?

Absolutely. What you learn and experience during an equine retreat will support, enhance and enrich any other work you are already doing. An Equine Experience is a MUST for anyone already doing their inner work.

Due to the intimate nature of these workshops and to ensure each participant has proper time and attention, as well as for the safety of both humans and horses, spaces are very limited. This is how I am able to ensure the best experience possible. As such, once you commit to yourself and request a spot, we commit that spot to you- it's no longer available to anyone else.

For that reason no cash refunds are offered once payment is received.

If due to completely unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances - such as a medical emergency, you cannot attend, please let us know and we'll happily work with you to apply your investment to a future workshop, or program, or if you wish you may transfer it to someone who would like your seat that is not already registered.

As an entrepreneur, business leader, and coach, over the last 30 years, I've built and grown -multiple successful companies and businesses.  

There comes a time and season in our lives where while the money is great - we yearn for something more, and for many of us, that "more" comes in the form of making a difference through our work, and our calling.

I'm certainly no stranger to bringing together our avocations with our vocation! 

Attending an equine partnered retreat about 7 years ago, was a huge catalyst in finding my own clarity and courage to bring together my love of personal development and business growth with my passion for horses, and to achieve my certification in education in Equine Facilitated Leadership, and buying the Ranch. 
I lead women leaders on a journey of self-discovery and growth through online coaching, workshops, and retreats. My approach blends business strategy with the transformative power of horses and nature, aligning inner desires with external success for a prosperous, fulfilling life

I've I designed this retreat "The Power of The Prosperous Woman" for women entrepreneurs and leaders such as you who are also feeling the call that "It's time" for YOUR more.

I'm Nafissa Shireen, your host for this powerful retreat

Hi There! 

 I'm deeply passionate about gentle horsemanship, and bringing awareness to the value horses bring as sentient beings that goes beyond riding or perceived "usefulness".   As much as I love to ride, my dream is also to normalize NOT riding, for those horses who simply cannot be ridden, and still deserve a home and long life of love. We've provided a home to several "unrideable" and senior horses over the years to live out their best days, and will continue to prioritize space for them in our barn.  A portion of all event proceeds is donated to J&M Horse Rescue in honor of our own rescue Adira. 

Yes!  You understand my journey! sign me up!

let's do it!

On a personal note:
