More Info on this Session

Tune into this wonderful introduction to the Gestalt perspective of partnering with horses to experience:

~ The fundamental importance of the concept of Contact to our healing work with horses and how you can use it to increase client's self-awareness and healing ability

~ How deepening your own awareness of Contact can improve your facilitation skills

~ The healing power of helping the client to experience how they move into and break from contact with a horse

~ The importance of recognizing the patterns of protection clients have developed that impact their choices to be in connection

~ How to co-create experiments with your horses that offer your clients new choices outside of the old patterns

~ Ways to be helpful when either you or your client stops the process, breaks the contact, or gets in the head!


Duey & Joan will be facilitating at the
**Healing with Horse Festival & Symposium**
our in-person event, June 2013 in Denver! Come learn from them and
join the Human Herd to empower your practice to the next level!!!
