Now back in Arizona after spending much of June in the United Kingdom facilitating several EFL Workshops, I would like to send you a quick reminder of the upcoming August Workshop and Informational Day for mental health professionals in Washington state.   Drea Bergquist-Bowen will be hosting both events at her lovely ranch on the scenic Kitsap Peninsula, just 10 minutes from Silverdale, Washington.  Please see below for more details. 


Heartfelt thanks go to the UK workshop participants and my inspiring colleges Sun Tui, Barbara Murray and Shelley Carr. 


Many Blessings,

Join us in Washington state to learn more about integrating your life skills, experience, and education for a successful and fulfilling Equine Facilitated Learning practice.
Our intention is to assist facilitators in leaning to discern the differences between Equine Facilitated Learning, Equine Assisted Coaching, and Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy; how these types of facilitation overlap; when discernment is necessary; how to combine some of the practices and principles unique to each; and how to assess your specific skill set and gifts to identify your individual practice. The latest research on the brain and the limbic system will be presented and discussed, as well as how these systems support the efficacy of our work with the horses.

This workshop will give you the opportunity to connect with like minded people! You can also schedule some individual time with Kathleen, Drea, and the herd.

Cost: $500 (Includes lunch Saturday and Sunday, snacks and beverages)

Kathleen and Drea will present the latest information on Equine Facilitated Learning; discuss how EFL can support and enhance your practice; and explore the viability of work with horses for depression, anxiety, PTSD and other mental health issues.


Kathleen has just returned from a successful trip to the United Kingdom where she worked with members of the military from the British Combat Stress organization.  A 2 day pilot program (through the IFEAL organization) was presented to 4 soldiers who experience PTSD; work with the horses proved beyond expectations the viability of EFL with individuals under the care of mental health professionals. 


Cost: $150 (Lunch included)
