Julie Bridge is the founder of Mearas Group and Executive Director of The Brego Foundation.
This conversation begins with a story about a girl and her horse. About the connection that happened when she first sat on his back and felt herself begin to heal. It is a conversation about the mystical power of nonverbal communication and the recovery that is possible when we tune in to what we know deep inside.
In 2007 when she rescued her first thoroughbred from a Washington feedlot and named him Brego, the Brego Foundation was formed. The Brego Foundation provides services for veterans, individuals in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction and others affected by trauma. It is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and retirement of former race horses and other horses in need of a second or even third career.
Julie has an advanced degree in Depth Psychology and has had the honor of training and apprenticing with some of the most influential leaders in the area of Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning. She lives on Tabula Rasa Ranch in Sonoma County, California.
