An emotions-based equine experience
Led by Bobbi McIntyre, licensed DEI® Trainer & Consultant
Co-facilitated by Andrea Watkins, licensed DEI® Trainer & Consultant
Humans are emotional beings. There’s no denying it, no matter how hard we try. Thankfully, having emotions is a really good thing. Emotions teach us about life, ourselves, and how to live with other people. They show our friends and partners who we are, they provide the energy we need to work through situations, and they keep us safe from harm. Unfortunately, most of us have never been taught the meaning behind our emotions nor how to work effectively with them.
Come learn skills in this experiential workshop that can help you work effectively and gracefully with your emotions. The weekend will include a rich mix of rejuvenation, time in nature, and guided activities.
Attendance is limited to 6 people to ensure that everyone gets individualized attention and everyone gets to work with the horses one-on-one.
You will experience presentations, professionally facilitated group processes, activities with horses on Bobbi’s farm.
Designed and led by licensed Dynamic Emotional Integration® trainers / consultants and Certified Equine Assisted Coaches as well as Bobbi’s herd of fabulous horses who need no licenses or certifications.
