How to Invite Limbic Revision by Balancing the Head, Heart & Hara
for Lasting Transformation in the Real World
with Kathleen Barry Ingram
Explore the Powerful Triad of Relationship so you can Remain in Heart Connection
while you Actively Move Forward to Get the Job Done!
As a facilitator, do you ever ask yourself these questions?
~ Where do you experience connection and disconnection in relationship?
~ When you disconnect how do you re-engage?
~ Are you able to balance your thoughts, feelings, and actions for effective coaching?
In this powerful session, we will explore together with the horse what real connection looks like. And we’ll use that Connected Limbic Relationship to invite ourselves and our clients into the optimized balance of being fully aligned in our thoughts, feelings, and actions!
Through live demonstration with horses, you’ll see the impact of Limbic Connection as you watch a three-phase session unfold, with the overall purpose of enhancing our Inner Alignment- because when we can align our Head, Heart, and Hara, while in relationship, we create a win-win outcome for all involved!
Beginning with a volunteer’s first “meet and greet with the horse,” you’ll begin to see the signs of Limbic Resonance. As we proceed through a full “reflective round pen” session, you’ll discover the power of Limbic Regulation from horse to human. From this YIN experience of BEING together, we’ll move into an activity which requires the YANG action, of DOING. During this experience of “active round pen work,” you’ll discover how client and horse come together for Limbic Revision as they engage in the YIN and YANG of Co-Creation, while being coached to become fully aligned through Head, Heart & Hara.
During our time together you’ll discover:
~ How horses and humans come together to create Limbic Connection which opens the door for Limbic Revision
~ Ways to increase your ability to notice and support the process of graceful connection and disconnection within yourself and your clients
~ How to successfully employ both reflective and active aspects of equine work for limbic revision that lasts into daily life
~ How to help your clients balance The Head, The Heart and The Hara (our power center) for ultimate outcomes that are a win-win-win!
~ How to use your own body as a Sensing Device to best guide the session for optimum impact
~ Ways to support the client to distinguish between Outside Fear and Inside Fear/Vulnerability to be able to walk through the door of vulnerability for positive and long lasting outcomes
~ How to support the Dance of Relationship with the client and the Horse
~ Ways to help the client find “the nugget” from the session and anchor it in their body as a resource for the rest of their life
Join in this session to experience how you can hold the “Sacred Space of Possibility” for true connection and change to happen for the horse and the client. By constantly using your own body as a “sensing device” and suspending your judgments & personal agendas, you’ll “check your ego” at the barn door and be in collaboration with the horse. Then positive outcomes will develop. You sessions will flow with ease and your clients will become your best referral source as they walk through the world with more confidence, balance, and joy!

Meet your Facilitator!
Kathleen Barry Ingram, M.A. is a Tucson-based consultant, certified coach, lecturer and educator specializing in assisting individuals in personal/professional growth and Equine-Facilitated Experiential Learning. Kathleen is dedicated to helping individuals and groups move beyond limiting patterns of thought and behavior, assisting in them in the discovery of possibilities to resolve conflict, develop competency and find peace.
Kathleen brings over 30 years of experience in the counseling field, non-profit services, and marketing and communications in the health care industry to her work as a coach and consultant to individuals, families and businesses. She is past executive director of San Juan United Way, corporate director of marketing and intake at Sierra Tucson Treatment Center and has been a board member of several non-profit health care agencies. She did her internship for graduate school with Four Corners Mental Health in New Mexico where she worked with a wide range of cultures and specialized in nonverbal communication with the Native population. The diversity and variety of populations Kathleen has mentored and facilitated gives her the experience and knowledge to work with people and groups both personally and professionally.
She had a private practice in Albuquerque in the early 80’s before moving to Tucson to work at Sierra Tucson, a leader in addiction treatment and also the first center to include horses as a part of the healing modality. She began her private counseling practice in 1992 in Tucson where she specialized in addiction counseling with an emphasis on eating disorders; grief and loss recovery; conflict resolution; and family interventions for addictive behaviors. She also completed 50 hours of post-graduate study in 1995 with the Pathfinder Foundation and Paul Rosenberg, MD and is certified in the psychodynamic fundamentals of effective short term psychotherapy.
Kathleen and Linda Kohanov began working together and creating workshops and individual intensives in 1998 and incorporating their talents and expertise to develop an innovative and creative healing modality employing the horses as equal partners. In 2003 the first Epona Equestrian Services apprenticeship class graduated. Kathleen and Linda co-created, developed and taught the apprenticeship program together until 2007 when the ninth class graduated and another group of talented and experienced individuals began their own equine facilitated learning practices.
Kathleen continues to teach and train others in this exciting healing modality. She is a consultant and teacher and works in EFL training programs in New Mexico and New York with Equine Alchemy; Canada with Horse Spirit Connections; and the UK with IFEAL International.
In 2010 Kathleen developed an individualized mentorship training program in EFL. This 6 month program is an intensive training and coaching program; each student receives individualized mentorship and guidance during the 6 months and beyond. As in all of Kathleen’s programs, relationship with self, horses and others is a pivotal aspect and is incorporated in all of her training. Individuals from the US, UK, Germany, Canada and New Zealand have graduated from the program or are currently enrolled as students. These individuals already have horse experience and are interested in integrating EFL into their current practices in counseling, psychotherapy, coaching and leadership. You can find out more about this exciting opportunity on Kathleen’s website.
The horses, as equal partners, assist the facilitator by modeling congruent messages and behavior, co-creative and consensual leadership, appropriate boundaries, experiencing emotional messages as information, and teaching and educating their human students to live consciously in the present moment.
Kathleen says: “The horses have been among my greatest teachers and whether I work directly with the horses or have them in my heart, I know I am guided and blessed to count them as my friends and companions.”
