The Meadows recently announced the addition of “Spirit: A Somatic Equine Workshop” to be offered beginning the week of November 11-15, 2013 from 7:15 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The 2014 dates include January 13-17, February 10-14, March 10-14, and April 14-18. This workshop will be offered at a ranch near The Meadows’ campus.
Combining The Meadows Model, Somatic Experiencing® (SE), mindfulness, and natural horsemanship, this cutting-edge workshop allows for a distinct healing experience. The program consists of experiential activities with horses addressing self-esteem, boundaries, honoring reality, wants and needs, emotional regulation, and spontaneity. Created exclusively for a small group of no more than five participants, this workshop is an outdoor five-day experience facilitated by a seasoned therapist trained in SE, along with a highly skilled, horseman and notable trainer. Individuals, couples, families, and professionals are welcome to enroll.
“We are thrilled to launch “Spirit,” said Jean Collins, MSW, LISAC, CSAT, Director of Workshops at The Meadows. “Due to the unique nature of this workshop and its prospective gifts for the participants, we have been awaiting this with great anticipation.”
