Mentorship in Equine Facilitated Learning
This advanced learning opportunity is for those wanting better understanding of the science and psychology underlining the wisdom of the horse. I want to assist qualified individuals in a one on one mentorship program which will emphasize the most recent research on the importance of relationships in learning; the limbic system; implicit knowing versus explicit knowledge; and the latest scientific information available to validate and affirm the intuitive knowing received from the horses.
Each program is designed to meet the individual's specific needs and will include phone consultations, written assignments, email correspondence and if possible work together with the horses. This program has been created out of requests from people wanting more training and information on equine facilitated learning and therapy. The recent advancements in brain science, psychological studies on relationships and the importance of connection with nature support the work with horses.
An article in the Utne Reader, November 2007 cited the mission statement from the Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers:
The grandmothers believe that only culture derived from nature's laws will survive. Without a deep connection to nature, our consciousness and our politics will inevitably be flawed. But when we are connected to the natural world, we cannot help but see the beauty within ourselves and everywhere else. With the deluge of negative information in the world today, it is heartening to consider the possibility that opening ourselves to beauty, hope, and connection may be the most healing action we can take.
