Develop your self-awareness with an Equine Facilitated Coaching program in Tuscany
Coaching with an Equine Facilitated Coach and a Horse Trainer and Behaviorist in a wonderful equine facility in the heart of rural Tuscany.
You will engage in several simple but specific activities with highly trained and safe horses.
These activities do not require any previous knowledge of or experience with horses nor do they entail any horse riding.
The course is designed to be done individually or as a group for maximum of 10 people and is accessible to people from all walks of life.
The principles of our coaching programmes
Unlike humans, who are often preoccupied, distracted, lost in thought and worry, horses are always exactly where they are – present and aware. As prey animals, they are highly intuitive and deeply sensitive to others’ intentions, energy, emotions and mental states. It is the accurate discernment of these things that ensures their survival and that makes them such good teachers of self-awareness.
Around humans, a horse’s behavior, both subtle and gross, is in direct response to what it reads in our body language and manner and to what it senses is going on inside us. As such, horses provide us with an uncannily accurate, inarguable and often enlightening reflection of both the physical and nonphysical aspects of our own individual ways of being and behaving. This reflection is delivered innocently, without guile, judgment or ulterior motive.
There is no desire to embarrass, criticize, “catch out” or condemn nor is there any desire to flatter, persuade, compliment or applaud. It is exactly this type of innocently delivered, unabashedly honest feedback which makes for such a profound and moving learning experience.
Your equine facilitated coach has got may years of experience at connecting horses and humans to help both achieve their true potential.
The setting is at a natural horsemanship facility located less than 1 hour from Pisa airport.
