Spirit: Self-Discovery Through Horses
Back to All Workshops
Emotional Trauma Workshop
This unique equine workshop blends the wisdom of our skillful therapist
trained in Somatic Experiencing® (SE) with an uncommon horseman and
highly skilled trainer. We combine The Meadows Model, SE, mindfulness, and natural horsemanship for a distinct healing experience. The program consists of experiential activities with horses, and addresses self-esteem, boundaries, honoring reality, wants and needs, emotional regulation, and spontaneity. This workshop is an outdoor experience facilitated by two gifted professionals and created exclusively for a small group of no more than five participants.
Most of the exercises are groundwork, but attendees should bring the
- Pants or jeans and long sleeve shirts; no tank tops or shorts, please
- Warm clothing, it gets cold in the morning
- Cap or hat and gloves for warmth
- Rain gear
