Therapy with horses
Assisted coaching with free to roam horses
Unique wellbeing practitioners
Guest post from our friends at Aura Coaching, Spain
Horses have accompanied humanity since time immemorial in our evolution as a species, and without them, we would not be where we are. They have been food, they have helped us till fields, have been our means of transport for years, and warriors in battle, elite athletes, and a form of leisure. In most recent decades, they have also become therapists in hippotherapy, equine therapy and psychotherapy, with the coaching through horses modality arriving in Europe in 2003.
Our mission at Aura is to help build a better world through the love of horses.
To make this possible, we work with our own methodology, which combines tools of Mindfulness, Heart Coherence, Emotional Intelligence, Non-verbal Communication, Coaching, Systemic Constellations, NLP and Enneagram of Personality, among others.
The Aura methodology is the result of the experience acquired year after year, of the experiences that each of the Aura family members have had individually, jointly as a herd in our day-to-day lives and in-session, accompanying each of the clients who have trusted us.
All the tools and wisdom of the Aura herd are at our clients’ service in an invitation for each to meet, explore and rediscover themselves while considering invaluable options that have not yet existed to them. Thanks to delicate and deep work, the coaching we present can lead to change, overcoming blockages, fears and beliefs and transforming what is limiting into an enabler. Session after session, the act of learning about oneself, about our qualities, abilities, virtues and passions, expands our capabilities and allows for unsuspected resources to emerge to help us face the comings and goings of life.
In relation to the environment in which the sessions are held: it is a completely natural, mountainous environment with clearings, forests, countless plants and flowers, rivers and streams, and accompanied by wildlife that, when choosing to, also participate in the sessions….
The utmost respect, trust and love characterize the Aura accompaniment: each member of the herd decides whether to participate or not in the session, decides whether or not we can get closer, decides to be or not to be touched…They have all the space they need to go, come or be alone, entering and leaving the session as and when they consider changing scenery, approaching to be touched or moving away, etc.
Each equine coach can express themselves how and when they see fit without any coercion, offering highly-impactful healing movements for our clients.
When this accompaniment is carried out with a herd of horses living in freedom, the experience and learning are amplified and magnified.
Learning with free to roam horses is experiential and has a very powerful and long-lasting impact on anyone, be it a child, adolescent or adult.
7. You will learn to forgive
To forgive is not to forget but to live in peace with the offence. Horses, like other animals, forgive; they don’t get caught up in resentment.
8. You will develop tenderness
Tenderness is a mixture of sweetness and love, thanks to which practically everything can be achieved. The horse will give us everything if we are tender and act from the heart, which allows us to learn to do it with other humans.
9. You will discover your talents
True talent is pure enjoyment! Your vocation is your mission. Daily decisions shape your life, so it is important to connect with the young, playful and curious part of you that is the one who will lead you to your purpose. Knowing what your values and virtues are and what inspires you will promote creative growth.
10. You will feel excited and happy
Excitement is the magic ingredient of every vocation. Happiness comes through excitement. Now, to be happy, you have to be brave. Action is the antidote to fear, so….
Let’s get to it!
