A Hero’s Journey with the Help of Horses

A Hero’s Journey with the Help of Horses

This course uses principles from Joseph Campbell’s Hero with a Thousand Faces and asks us to become the heroes of our own spiritual journeys.  The seminar includes immersive, interactive, didactic sessions as well as work with horses in the round pen and arena.

This unique workshop is designed for those who want to develop a better understanding of the heroic challenges and risks that all of us must face. Didactic sessions, seminars, and hand-on interaction with horses help to explore the

Seven Steps of the Hero’s Journey, especially as they relate to the experiences of First Responders* , Veterans.

In an amazing partnership with horses, the group works together to clarify and explore the universal aspects of heroic journeys. Time-honoured techniques of groundwork with horses are applied to study and dissect the tools available to us as we strive to understand our own journeys. This is a very special, one- of-a-kind, acclaimed equine program designed for first-responders, military veterans, and those who support them.

This program is based on mythologist Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey and Dr. Allan Hamilton’s award-winning book, Lead with Your Heart: Lessons from a Life with Horses

 *First responders typically include paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, firefighters, rescuers, and other trained members of organizations connected with this type of work.

No prior experience with horses is required to enrol.
