Experience an opportunity participating in “Gaining Ground” Equine Retreats. Equine Assisted Learning is a powerful experiential modality exploring and developing healthy relationships and connection to self and others through the guidance and wisdom of horses along with a licensed therapist. Currently, the program will be offered as half/full day retreats. No horse experience necessary, all horse activities are on the ground. Horses offer metaphorical learning, mirroring the human body language and feelings of the participant. Sessions are solution oriented in order for the client to discover the best solutions for themselves. In these sessions, the benefits can include learning new coping strategies, enhancing mental health, wellness and life skills through the relationship with the horse.
This program will also incorporate mindfulness ecotherapy and “Chart Your Change” a Vision Board modality exploring one’s life path. Participation size will be limited. Individual and couple sessions to be announced in the future.
