Our TS-EAM Weekend Workshop is for you who want to work with yourself and explore and learn about how you function, what your stress and/or trauma responses look like and how you can become better at helping yourself to greater inner awareness being able to make yourself feel more safe, resilient, self-compassionate, present and in better attunement with ourselves and others.
This workshop is designed to take you, through a process, where you step by step create a solid and individualized base for your mindfulness & meditation practices. TS-EAM incorporates experiential learning, trauma sensitive mindfulness (TSM), creative mindfulness and meditations, and nature based and animal assisted learning and mindfulness to support you in a relaxing, grounding, resource creating, emotionally supportive, reflective, and therapeutic processes. You are introduced to how you both can be with yourself and work with yourself to, without overwhelm, be with your stress and trauma responses with better and greater agility and flexibility.
These are the steps we move through during a 2,5-day workshop (Friday evening to Sunday afternoon). There are shorter theoretical introductions to each theme, but the main work, we do with the horses, in nature.
This workshop is for any adult, either you come to enhance your own wellbeing and understanding of yourself, or how you perhaps can incorporate some of this way of working into your own services of equine assisted interventions.

We meet Friday evening for a 2-hour introduction and setting the frame for what we are going to do the rest of the weekend. On Saturday we work the steps of Mindful Gauges, Safety and Resilience in the morning and Inner Awareness, Self-Compassion and Belonging in the afternoon. Sunday morning, we work with Presence and Attunement/Attachment to finish the weekend with the step of Integration before we wrap up for this time. Not all of you will do all of the steps, or focus equally much on each step, this is part of our trauma sensitive and individualized approach. You will work in our own pace and decide for yourself what works for you.
