What is Equine Assisted Learning (EAL)?
EAL is an educational experience where horses are the teachers. EAL is a unique approach to human development that encourages individual and team growth. Working with horses gives as a practical way to test how effectively we’re communicating and interacting with ourselves and others. Within the sessions above we will explore intention, connection and self-leadership with fully qualified Facilitator Allison Reis.
Please note that no experience with horses is needed. No riding is involved as participants engage in objectively driven experiences with amazing horses on the ground.
What is a Clay Play Session?
You’ll be encouraged to let loose and get your hands dirty in a social rather than serious pottery class. We will all pinch, roll, sip and nibble the afternoon away through 2.5 hours of fun. An inclusive women’s class where all will be encouraged to create.
Pieces made will be dried and fired over two weeks post workshop and pick-up can be arranged through Lisa from her studio in New Norfolk or postage can also be arranged (for an additional costs). Besides postage there will be no additional cost to the retreat.
No experienced required. You’ll be amazed at what you can create with a little guidance.
