About the Event

Animals   have got an innate instinct for resilience and recovery and by learning from  them we can discover an amazing skill set to help us on our own journeys. 

What  do our feelings mean and what are we supposed do about them? Animals teach us  that there is a reason and a place for everyone and for every feeling, and  they show us how it all fits. 

Animals also hold a completely non judgemental,  loving space, enable everyone to be exactly as they are: many people find it   easier to open their hearts to animals than to other people.

Through connecting with the 3 horses of the Horse & Heart herd and through guided exercises and games for awareness, this course will enable you to find and explore your own potential for emotional intelligence, empathy, resilience, positive leadership, and co-creation through play: a toolkit for recovery. 

Surrounded by the love of horses, this is a gentle approach with no expectation to achieve anything, and you will not be pushed to interact with the horses more than you wish to. Whether you're up for pony play or would simply like to watch from a safe distance, you will learn skills that will be valuable to you for the rest of your life. It is also a great space to get over a fear  of horses!

Marie   is a qualified and experienced Holistic Horsemanship practitioner and  instructor who has dedicated her life to bringing the wisdom of horses into  the hearts of people. Her passion is to work with groups of all  ages and share the skills of self-development and recovery that horses teach.  She has been leading groups for many years with love and care, always in an  atmosphere of acceptance, inclusion and relaxed fun infused with deep  heart-learning.

Participants must book for the 6 sessions of the course.
