What participants are saying...

The workshop really got me to look at mediation from another angle - one that utilizes nature, and resources (ie. resources for "grounding", "coming back to center/calming", "shifting energy") other than a mediation app and sitting on a cushion.  I absolutely believe that this kind of workshop (animal/heart centered) is the future terms of learning how to incorporate holistic well-being and compassionate living into daily life."  

                                                                              -A Fall Mindfulness Workshop Series participant.


"Having horse interaction and explanation of how they exhibit subtle movement that very clearly indicates distress and how you work with that by being mindful and present was exceptional. Being present with our clients and not feeding into their distress is so important to their ability to trust a provider of service. Using horse as prey animal and the symptoms that they exhibit is something I use regularly now with clients and staff."

                       -A Trauma Informed Care Training Participant, Kathy Aguilar- Seamar Everett Behavioral Health

"Trauma informed care is a concept I’ve been learning about, and able to apply in many contexts. But exploring the topic via this completely different lens really helped me to understand trauma informed care in a whole new light, and really helped me to practice the skills. I think it’s one thing to talk about what trauma informed care looks like with horses, and a huge, huge plus to actually get to live it. I also liked to pace of the program – not too fast, and not too slow."
