Wisdom Within Us
We believe that deep inside each one of us lies the answers to all of our questions and sometimes we just need a little guidance and support unearthing them. Our coaches and horses help you find your answers.
Using the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method, we invite horses to be our partners in the process of self-discovery. They show up with profound insights offering feedback that will surprise and delight you. Horses help us ground ourselves and tap into our emotions on an authentic level. They show us when we are speaking our truth.
The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® was developed by Melisa Pearce, a core founder since 1989 of the horse-human healing movement. The experiential nature of the method involves the horse as an active partner with the coach in the client's exploratory process. The integrative approach of the equine's interaction combined with positive coaching, somatic awareness guidance and Gestalt methodology, assists the client in examining their life and choices made with a focus on designing a positive future. Our coaching methodology enables an incredibly powerful process of discovery through both personalized and one-on-one coaching and group programs.
Co-active coaching guides you on an exploratory journey to discover more about yourself and gain clearly around what makes you come alive. The horses support you in tapping into your inner wisdom through becoming more present and more attuned and connected to your body, your true self, and the world around you.
Individual sessions are an hour and a half.
$185 for a single session. $360 for two booked together; $525 for three booked together.
“We all know what it feels like to be truly heard and seen. It's welcoming, it's uplifting, and it's genuine. Not only did Christina give me and my girlfriend that kind, heartfelt recognition, she was able to harness it and guide it through the maze of our entangled emotions so that we were ultimately faced with hearing and seeing ourselves. The environment of Airy Hill Stables provided us with a mood of both earthy grounding and magical intrigue, what with heavy stacks of hay ready for use amidst the sand-filled arena, dust glistening in the rays of the evening's sunlight. Christina gently introduced us to the horse we were to work with, Bella, and set a tone of openness necessary for us to tap into our deeper selves. With insightful questions, guided mindfulness, and an uncanny ability to facilitate challenging our inner struggles, Christina granted Bella the freedom to interact with our purest senses. Through these interactions and the active discussions, my girlfriend and I felt clarity and a perspective of presence and intentions forward that were not there before our visit. I would highly recommend Christina to anyone, whether dealing with an acute challenge or seeking overall wellness. Christina and Bella undoubtedly helped us hear and see ourselves in a new light.”
