WORK OF HEART
Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy

Workshop & Treatment Programs

Workshops & Treatment Programs

Work of Heart workshops and treatment programs can explore the practical art of mindfulness through interactions with horses, master teachers of awareness. Horses not only embody these attitudes, they offer humans an accurate, yet innately non-judgmental form of biofeedback for self-awareness.

These programs also can enhance and integrate mental and physical healing through the resonance that develops between these powerful animals and humans. Experiencing acceptance from the Horse empowers an individual to acknowledge and accept present circumstance, participate more fully in prescribed therapies and realize potential for new growth.

Workshop and program activities with horses will include direct interaction sensing and reflective work. Active round pen work supports inner stillness and balance within movement. Participants  will receive guidance in simple mindfulness practices to enhance nonverbal nuances of awareness. Work of Heart invites existing equine facilities to inquire about hosting a workshop.
