The Science and Soul of the Horse Human Bond
Presented by Drea Bowen and Brenda Newell, this is a four part series, but participants can participate in one or more of the workshops. You are not required to attend all four; however seating is limited and registration is required.
Workshop 1 - Relationship - The Biology of Love in All Social Bond Animals (including us)
When we understand the biological calling of all mammals we begin to understand how to connect in ways that inspire us as humans and allow horses to create their own experience of relationship with us.
Workshop 2 - The Missing Link to Creating Mutual Bonds Between Horse and Human
Mutual healthy thriving mammal relationships depend on empathy. Authentic relationship is only possible when empathy is present making it THE essential element for the kind of connection we crave with each other and with our horses.
Workshop 3 - Horse Brain - Human Brain, Understanding Emotional Well Being
Learn more about how captivity, lack of awareness, cruelty, neglect, painful training, and emotional/physical/spiritual stress affect a horse’s cognition, emotional well being, natural way of being and most importantly how we can prioritize their wellness and capacity to live whole.
Workshop 4 - The Myth of 'Alpha' and Dominance Heirarchy
Social bond oriented mammals are affiliative, cooperative, have moral (manner) laws within their family groups and practice situational leadership; all qualities that influence the ability to maintain healthy social dynamics between individuals and within familial groups.
