What’s Discover about?
Discover is a short day workshop designed to introduce you to the concept and techniques of EFL, and to enable you to experience some of its profound benefits.
You will be guided through mindful and self-reflective exercises, learn to connect with the information of your body and emotions and experiment with your insights. Then, you will have an opportunity to explore your discoveries in an individual experience with one of the horses.
Horses are highly social herd animals, intimately connected to their immediate environment. In the wild they are alert to danger and so are highly sensitive to emotional cues from other members of the herd. When you enter their space, in the context of the workshop, they interact with you in that moment and can help you to become aware of your true feelings. They connect with the real you, not the public mask that you may wear, and can help you to open a line of communication with your true self.
Discover how the horses as teachers approach can help you, or your clients, to raise self-esteem and confidence and increase social and communication skills.
