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’ and what it is that has drawn us into our chosen profession. What it is our hearts are longing for.
The ground-breaking work of Bert Hellinger, coming from his training 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 developed is called ‘the constellation’ which uses human representatives to represent family members, issues or internal parts of ourselves. We use this lens and methodology 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.
It serves as a protection for the people we work with and ourselves when we understand that in order to give in a healthy way we must first be able to receive. Then we may no longer project our entanglements and 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. They are based on the Eagala Model of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. That is, we use a team approach. The facilitating team consists of an equine specialist, a mental health professional and most importantly ‘the horses’. All activities take place on the ground and you don’t need to have any previous experience with horses.
The structure of the day is based on Bert Hellinger’s work on ‘The high art of helping’ and the three basic systemic principles of relationship: belonging, reciprocity and things being in their right place.
We are interconnected beings who often become entangled in the webs we weave and webs we inherit.
In these 1day workshops we prepare to enter ‘another’s’ field, (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 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. As we enter the energetic field of the horse we can deepen our capacity for a transformational process in a truly profound way.
