Communication is fundamental to everything we do as humans. We are always communicating yet how conscious are we of the messages we send? We communicate with words, with body language, and with our emotions and intentions. Psychologists call the latter “affect contagion” but we could just as easily call it “herd mentality” or atmosphere or “vibrations”. We, like other mammals, are always operating on “Send” but we humans often are not so good at “Receive”. Working and playing with horses – experts at non-verbal communication – offers us a chance to leverage our learning because horses ‘send’ and ‘receive’ on the level of body language, emotions and intentions. This workshop will help to open up communication to experience it on all levels. Come out and be prepared to learn about yourself and take home some valuable lessons on conscious communications.
