Class Description:

Our entire lives are spent in relation to others. How do you show up? Are you being what you think others want to see? Or, are you being YOU? By being ourselves, our authentic self, we honor the diversity that is so special and rich in the world, and our communication skills with others improve. There is no more important truth than knowing who we are, what we are, and what is our path and purpose. In Ka Ta See, we call this our Song, our individual totality.

Once we understand ourselves, our Song, we open to understanding others in the same ways. We begin to see and honor diversity in all our relationships. We connect Song to Song, and when we communicate from this place wonders happen.

Horses communicate this way all the time. They are continually inviting us to meet them Song to Song. They invite us to express our most authentic self in relationship within a safe environment of no judgement. This is the Way of the Horse.

In this two-day course, you will learn how to find your authentic self, your Song self, and gain access to many tools to help communicate with others from this place of being while experiencing it directly with horses. Our Horse Instructors teach and offer you the practice and confidence to bring this way of being into All your personal relations, and ultimately into your community.

Who would want to attend?

This class is open to all adults who want to know more about themselves, who they really are, and how this understanding makes them a more successful communicator. No prior horse experience required, and all work is done from the ground.
