Increase personal, social and environmental well-being by enabling individuals to create beneficial moments that let Earth teach.  

My name is Betty Jensen. I have created a HEALING ADVENTURE that incorporates the principals of Equine Assisted Learning/Coaching and Ecopsychology.   Horses assist each to discovery the core challenges that that are causing an impact on your life. It is amazing to watch the horses work.  
 The use of Equine Assisted Therapy/Equine Assisted Learning/Coaching (EAT/ EAL) techniques will be incorporated using horses experientially for emotional growth and learning. EAT/EAL is experiential in nature.  

Enter into horse time and experience the potential for inner growth and healing. Through interacting with the horses, becoming part of the herd, and understanding the nature of the horse you will:
1. Improve your level of contact and presence with yourself and others
2. Become aware of how horses and people respond to your intentions and behaviors
3. Experience developing a relationship with the horses, and how that relationship can be a reflection of your inner process
4. Cultivate trust and intimacy
5. Improve breathe and body awareness
6. Allow the horses to make known to you what wants to be healed or revealed
The focus of EAT/EAL involves setting up ground activities involving the horses which will require the client or group to apply certain skills. Non-verbal communication, assertiveness, creative thinking and problem-solving, leadership, work, taking responsibility, teamwork and relationships, confidence, and attitude are several examples of the tools utilized and developed by EAT/EAL.

Cost of course: $450.00 (includes cost of required course books.).  
Come spend three days with the horses discovering the insights how nature and horses can bring balance into your life.
