BodyMind Therapy is a 75 minutes session combining energy work, mindfulness, creative journeying and dialogue. Sessions work with a client’s emotional organization and behavioural patterns. Through questions designed to elicit a more sensory than cognitive response, BodyMind Therapy helps illuminate the patterns that limit us. With conscious awareness of how we are living, we then make informed decisions about how we can thrive and live in abundance. BodyMind sessions help manifest a deep sense of internal safety that encourages a creative response to life.
An EGD™(Equine Guided Development) session deepens the understanding of issues explored in the BodyMind session. Horses are excellent mirrors to our internal world and work to gently expose self imposed limitations while supporting our journey.
The 60 min EGD™session begins with meeting the herd and choosing a horse with which to work. Equine body language and communication is explored as well as the client’s own observations. This is followed by 15 – 20 minutes of self-guided interaction with the horse. The session concludes with the client relating their story and hearing what was witnessed by the facilitator. Self reflective questions are asked both during and after the session. Clients find EGD™a safe way to explore boundaries, self-esteem andcreative expression.
The combined BodyMind Therapy and EGD™session is a profound therapeutic experience. BodyMind Therapy andEGD™ can be combined with other modalities or used on their own.
