Great peace has come to me and to the herd. After an expansive year of travel and in opening our glorious facility in Longmont everything has settled. Each herd member is strong and solid and as a group they have formed a tight, cohesive herd. It brings me such joy to see them living in harmony.
Yesterday during the Natural Horsemanship for EFLC each one of them offered the client a new nugget or perspective in communication and connection. After a long, cold winter the horses are happily ready to teach.
We continue to lead with them, into deeper levels of learning and expanded awareness. The integrative approach to the equine learning work offered by the teaching team at the ranch continues to deepen and gain momentum. My personal dedication to bringing awareness and change to human consciousness about the spiritual and powerful healing nature of Horse is stronger than ever.
During programs we see how horses bring awareness to humans in the areas of emotional, mental, physical and/or spiritual understanding. Continually I see that the deepest levels of expansion in consciousness are accessed when all four levels are coached and accessed in harmony with horse. The Mind Body Method Coaching models that I developed and teach in the EFLC training programs provide this structure and make our program unique in this way.
This multilevel coaching approach is effective with any group of people or individual, regardless of where they are on their journey. Children, women in transition, and corporate leaders all benefit by the principles taught and the tools offered. The dance of human expansion is generated by horse, guided by horse and ignited by their fully integrated presence.
With the ever changing and evolving status of world events and the significant changes in how modern cultures currently relate to the planet, the Coaching with Horses body of work is more important than ever. Without connection to mother earth and all that is, one cannot fully grasp the importance of evolving their consciousness. The journey with Horse has fullness and richness that is based in this heart-based connection to all. Horse brings us back to truth.
We (my horses, myself and program assistants) invite you to take your step of faith and to trust your inner guidance and knowing, to trust the call without seeing the designation, and to walk in the journey of Horse and to forever change your life.
Level One is Your Entry to Learning the Way of the Horse
The Level One program is open to anyone who is ready to begin the journey or wants to expand his or her toolbox in Equine Facilitated Learning. You may have studied with someone else in the field or be completely new at the work.
The EFLC Level One program is packed full of tools, coaching processes and skills for you to take home and begin practice sessions. Deeply focused in emotional intelligence, and developing presence through embodying the “Way of the Horse,” this program teaches people to access their authentic self, and coach others to do the same. Continuing Education points are offered for the EFLC Level One training program and it is certified by the ICF (International Coach Federation).
