Using guided herd observation in real time, Kim Hallin will illustrate how horses (one of Earth's most emotionally intelligent species) can teach us to thrive in a world full of threats and potential dangers.
Participants will have the opportunity to put what you learn into practice, guided by Chris Smith and his menagerie of reptile friends, including one of humanity's most commonly feared animals: snakes!
Kim and Chris specialize in creating safe, supportive experiential learning environments where participants feel inspired and supported in stretching their comfort zones and trying new things.
The body’s fear-response is the same regardless of whether a fear is justified, irrational, real or imagined. This is true for horses, humans, and all sentient beings. But the innate nature of our nervous systems doesn't mean we have no control over our irrational fear responses. Horses rely on a simple but immensely powerful process to transform their own fear responses into feelings of safety, familiarity, confidence… and even friendship (or at least peaceful co-existence) with the world around them. Horses are also masters at trusting their instincts and nurturing community cohesion when a danger turns out to be real or imminent. Join us for this unique experiential workshop and we'll teach YOU how to do it too!
