Participants stay in good ole' Wickenburg and are transported daily to equine facility.
The Meadows Model + Somatic Experiencing®(SE) + Horses = AMAZING!
"Spirit" is a great resource for those of us that have already done a great deal of personal work. It is unique, very different from the other forms of therapy I have encountered in my twenty-five years of recovery. I had profound insights and learned techniques to continue nervous system regulation. I was able to complete several pieces of experiential work throughout the week; some deep and others just necessary to integrate.
The relationship between horses and humans is unique. Horses are highly intuitive animals. Buddy told us, "horse give you what you need, not necessarily what you want". This resonated; they present challenges and elicited emotions I may not have otherwise accessed. Without ever mounting a horse, I felt connected to them, myself and nature in a way I hadn't for some time. They represented struggles in my life, and inspired me to stretch. These horses and facilitators helped me connect to my higher self, providing the guidance and the healing I sought in an organic way.
