Successful facilitation, supporting positive change, depends on authentic presence, the inner quality of the awareness, attention and intention of the agent of change, and the quality of the relationship and communication with the client system. This workshop offers experiential learning focusing on six key Gestalt and four ICF principles and facilitation competencies that support the professional development of the facilitator within the coaching, therapeutic, change agent and leadership relationship.

The Gestalt and ICF approach, and experiential learning with horses and nature will be incorporated into relevant real time learning within the workshop. The workshop format includes presentation, dialogue, experiential learning, and practicum practice sessions. The venue will be in natural settings; both indoors and out in nature.

Try Something Different

Engaging with horses and nature in reflective and active learning opportunities relevant to real time life issues and authentic work situations challenges us to learn how to think rather than what to think. Interactions with horses and the powerful presence of the natural world provides immediate and direct feedback relevant to co-creating relationship, good communication and facilitated learning skills all important in facilitating the change process and essential to success in everyday work and personal life.
