FEEL is Equine Assisted Learning
Equine Assisted Learning is a heart-centred connection which creates new and profound insights. If you love horses, dream of horses or are simply drawn to the spirit of the Horse, come and experience this special human-horse bond.
The FEEL (Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning)® Approach will facilitate the reconnection of your heart and soul inspiring healing and growth. It is a leading edge modality which involves the horses’ willing participation as partners in assisting humans to discover their potential. Interacting on the ground with a horse is a unique time of discovery and reflection which raises consciousness for both humans and horses.
Engaging with horses allows you to create a relationship with a being who offers unconditional support and love without judgment. These intimate ‘felt’ moments foster transformation and healing at a deep level, while connecting you to something greater.
Horses are one of the more powerful and majestic forms of prey animals in the natural world. Their survival is dependent upon their sensitive observational skills and compelling intuitive responses to their environment. Their advanced ability to communicate can take you straight to the heart of the matter, to the things we don’t acknowledge even to ourselves.
Often times a person steps into the engagement and the horse turns, comes over and immediately puts his nose to a very particular part of that person – the exact part that is wounded. Horses pick up everything from a broken heart to an injured knee. Thanks to a strong empathic nature, they are able to immediately sense how you are feeling. Horses read the slightest gestures of your body language and are able to sense both your conscious and subconscious energy states. It is always your inner state the horse will respond to – your authentic self.
By attuning to your energy and paying attention to your emotional state and body language, horses actually listen to you at a much deeper and profound level. This resonance creates a palpable sense of unity between one being to another. Horses have a gentle way of bringing unconscious feelings to the surface and creating a safe place for you to release them.
With the specially designed FEEL activities you can deepen your awareness of personal issues, core feelings and areas of bodily tension that inhibit your ability to reach your true potential. Through equine assisted learning, these horse interactions help you recognize and move beyond familiar coping strategies to accessing your own inner wisdom.
