Kristi Rockley is owner and lead mare of Spirit's Whisper Ranch. With an awareness and respect for the life-enhancing impact that horses have on humans, she creatively combined the "call" of the horse to a new walk of life in the adventurous, spirited field of Horse Guided Learning & Healing. Kristi creates a "space of possibility" at Spirit's Whisper Ranch, where participants are encouraged to experience their own authenticity in action. She and her herd of majestic horses cultivate engaging and transformational growth opportunities for individuals and groups.

 

The horses "call" to Kristi revealed to her the incredible power created within following your heart. Only once she walked away from the only life she knew, did Kristi recognize the life-changing gift a young horse named Spirit was offering to her. She followed a non-logical gut feeling to drive over 2500 km's south to Colorado ... which was where he was waiting for her. Their 6-feet strong, soul depth connection initiated the start of a journey that demonstrates the unbridled potential available to us when we live in the moment, speak our truth, truly listen, and don't get attached to outcomes.Together, Kristi, Spirit, and their herd co-create empowering experiences designed to enrich the personal and professional lives of others.

 

Near 20 years of dedicated service and experience as a police officer and police trainer, with Waterloo Regional and York Regional Police Departments, have contributed to Kristi's skills as an effective instructor, coach, facilitator and mentor. She is well-versed in researching, creating, and presenting reality-based experiences and instructional workshops, lectures, and conferences. Kristi encourages and challenges individuals and teams,   to further develop their awareness, knowledge, skills, and attitudes.

 

A self-motivated learner for over 30 years, Kristi has investigated and attended a wide range of workshops, training's, and courses (police, civilian, and animal). She has earned extensive and diverse instructor qualifications throughout North America. Kristi considers learning and personal-discovery to be an ongoing,  life-long journey. Kristi enjoys working with both animals and people, and is committed to the highest level of integrity and excellence, both personally and professionally.
