The Academy for Coaching with Horses, the premier Equine Facilitated Learning facility in Colorado, founded by Kathy Pike, international author of Hope from the Heart of Horses: How Horses Teach Us about Presence, Strength and Awareness, has just announced the 3rd Annual Coaching with Horses Retreat and Conference to be held in Tucson, Arizona in January 2018.
Equine Facilitated Learning and Coaching, often abbreviated EFLC, is based in the belief that the intuitive and sentient nature of Horse gives them an innate ability to help people connect to their most authentic selves. Horses are highly influenced by the subtle, nearly imperceptible changes in body language, mental state and feelings within humans, enabling them to act as a mirror and give honest insights into the human psyche.
"Horses, long perceived to be unintelligent beasts of burden and serving man through the primary use of their physical body, now are emerging, in an ever so timely way, to provide man the opportunity to raise consciousness and embrace the connectivity shared by all living beings and mother earth. Through this process a human's life is expanded into desires of service and creativity otherwise dormant and deserted by the demands of the fast-paced life our technological culture stimulates." – Kathy Pike, Founder of The Academy for Coaching with Horses
Once a relatively unknown field, coaching with horses, which differs from equine therapy, has grown rapidly over the past several years with an increased demand for information and education about this new, and very effective field. Kathy Pike has gathered a talented and experienced group of Equine Assisted Learning professionals to offer a wide variety of educational sessions along with like-minded community and other equine activities for the 3rd Annual Coaching with Horses Retreat and Conference in Tucson, Arizona.
“It’s amazing how horses open your heart and create this opportunity for a deeper connecting with yourself and other human beings as well. You and your team were holding the space with honour, respect and vulnerability. What a great group of women all together.” – Piri, from Canada at the 2017 Academy for Coaching with Horses Retreat and Conference
The Academy for Coaching with Horses offers various Equine Facilitated Learning and Coaching Certification Programs, as well as programs for people in transition, corporations looking for team building and leadership skill development, people on a spiritual path and those looking to deepen their relationship with Horse. The 2018 Academy for Coaching with Horses Retreat and Conference is an intimate gathering offering a significant amount of hands on time with horses and ideal for those wanting to explore this field, expand their knowledge, or just looking to find their place with Horse.
