Trauma Sensitive Equine Assisted Mindfulness - TS-EAM

This workshop takes you, through a step by step process where you create a solid and individualized base for your mindfulness practices.

TS-EAM incorporates experiential learning, trauma sensitive mindfulness (TSM), expressive arts, ecopsychology and nature assisted and equine assisted learning to support you in a relaxing, grounding, resource creating, emotionally supportive, reflective, and therapeutic processes.

The goal is for you to develop tools so you can work with yourself, to better be with yourself, without overwhelm, stress and trauma reactions. To help you find better and greater emotional agility and flexibility, which creates more room for other, more positive experiences in life.

To take part in a TS-EAM workshop is a requirement if you want to become an accredited TS-EAM facilitator, together with a completed EATIC training.

Rewild your Heart - Nature Assisted Mindfulness - HEAR - Learn about our Holistic and Ecological Approaches

In our Rewilding concept we use a combination of TSM (Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness) and Nature Assisted Mindfulness - NAM (put together as TS-NAM) as a base for the stepwise process we invite you to in our Rewild your Heart and HEAR workshops and courses.

Whilst we offer knowledge about feralization and domestication, social dynamics, communication and behavior in horses, and invite you to come with us out into nature to visit feral-living horses. The journey there is not complete without you rewilding yourself - your heart.

Finding nature, and the wild in yourself, supports you in connecting with all other beings and their environments. We offer you the chance to experience this kind of rewilding in our workshops, but we also teach you how to facilitate this stepwise rewilding process. As always, all our offers are stress, trauma and ND informed, stress, trauma and ND sensitive and at times, stress, trauma and ND focused. We also teach about why rewilding of oneself can be a pathway to healing stress and trauma and restoring balance in one’s life.

Rewilding and Nature Assisted Mindfulness is part of what you can learn about in our EATIC courses. To take the Rewild your Heart workshop is a requirement if you want to become an accredited HEAR facilitator.

A rewild your Heart workshop or course is also an excellent CPD/CEU opportunity for Equine Professionals and any Equine Assisted Service provider to deepen their understanding of horses and their environments.
