I have just completed 5 days of training in Equine Assisted Growth and Learning. I am exhausted. I was continually challenged on several levels. I stayed uncomfortable most of the 5 days. I know that is the state in which the most learning occurs, but I am now so tired. There is a part 2 training for which I am now signed up and will obtain a certification from EAGALA to practice Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning as a member of a 2 or 3 part team. I will be the Equine Specialist and work with a mental health professional.
The power of this work is overwhelming to me personally. I look forward to sharing it with others. I will be using it as a part of a science curriculum this fall for at-risk students, Lord willing. I’m not sure where it will go from there.
I’m really excited about working with my horses and preparing them for this work as well.
I am in a state of disequilibrium and it makes it hard to formulate my thoughts. I am growing and changing and can sense it happening, but it will take some time of rest and focus on other things before I will be able to articulate all that is going on inside of me. I have a blog where I write exclusively about horses and my work with them: Learning with Horses.
Wow, Amy, that’s really cool! I’m excited for you getting into something new involving something that you love so much. Also, it’s neat to read about you understanding yourself so well. You’re amazing and I know it’s because of your relationship with the Lord.
Growing is painful, isn’t it? But the alternative is much worse.
