People often feel drawn to work with others and to help them. This pull can come from a deep love and loyalty that stems from within our own family system, our own herd. To work cleanly with others it is important to be able to differentiate 'what belongs to whom'. What it is that has drawn us into our chosen profession and what it is our hearts are longing for.

The ground-breaking work of Bert Hellinger, from a background in psychoanalysis to his systemic family therapy, allows us to see ourselves through a lens which brings to light our connections, loyalties and bonds, conscious and unconscious, across the generations. The methodology he uses is called 'the constellation' using human representatives to represent family members or issues. We use this lens together with the added help of horses. We include horse presence and wisdom as representatives in the family field. Clearing our own 'field allows us to work with clarity, awareness and compassion. This serves as a protection for the people we work with and ourselves when we no longer project what is out of our awareness on to our co-workers and clients. When we can experience being separate and connected, then we ourselves, and those we work with, become freer to move and heal in a healthy way. Helping at this level is 'a high art'.

These innovative workshops are offered to people who work with others. All activities take place on the ground and you don't need to have any previous experience with horses. The structure of the workshops is based on Bert Hellinger's work on'The high art of helping together with the three systemic principles of relationship:

    • Belonging
    • Reciprocity
    • Things being in their right place.

We are interconnected beings who often become entangled in the webs we weave and webs we inherit. 

In this 1 day workshop we prepare to enter another field, the field of "other" (the others we work with). Participants are invited to come into a deeper awareness of themselves within their family field, their family herd. You are invited to come with an open heart and a deeply respectful willingness to explore how the need to belong has shaped you. These workshops often facilitate a very deep inner movement whereby things come to the surface and into awareness in a very healing and gentle way.
When we work in the presence of horses, observing their behavior and at the same time being aware of what happens inside us as we allow ourselves to become attuned to them, We find that they can teach us to be present to our true selves, mindfully in alignment, separate and connected. They are exquisite representatives and they mirror for us in an extraordinary way when we are open to their wisdom. When we enter the energetic field of the horse we can deepen our capacity for a transformational process in a truly profound way.
