Horse facilitated self-discovery sessions offer the chance for immediate and powerful insights into the way we function in everyday life. These insights are experienced rather than thought out, they become part of our life-experience, embodied, emotionally absorbed.
In letting horses facilitate our experience of ourselves we gain access to the truth of who we are, in the here and now. Horses do not care for our stories about ourselves or judge us. They feel us, pick up on the authentic cues that we ourselves might miss, and reflect the truth of the interaction. This experience in itself often leads to healing and fundamental change.
What happens in a session ? The session is experiential in nature. The client works directly with horses and it only involves ground-based, simple-to-do exercises. It requires no prior experience with horses and will not involve riding. We work holistically with “body and soul”, feelings, thoughts and sensations, and experience our impact first-hand in a non-judgemental and vivid process encompassing being out in nature in the slower nature of horse time and inherent mindfulness their presence brings.
Activities are designed by the team of therapists and allow each person to work at their own level and rytm. A session can incorporate the Native American Medicine Wheel model into the horse experience for a deep and enlightening self-exploration.
The only “equipment” needed is a pair of sturdy shoes or boots and comfortable clothes, suitable for the weather on the day, as we will work outdoor.
The venue will be in Norfolk or Suffolk. Directions will be provided on booking.
Individual session (2 hours) : 90£
Group session (1 or 2 days) : costs vary depending on the program and number of participants
