Horse Wisdom for Humans
An award-winning author, international lecturer, and trainer, Linda has brought her innovative equine facilitated learning program to a global audience. Whether you’re interested in horses or human development—or both—Linda Kohanov’s Eponaquest approach allows people to engage with horses or observe them and learn how to thrive in life through these experiences. Linda shares with us how her equine facilitated learning program offers tools that open creativity, insight, and empowerment. She explains that these experiences can further expand personal vision and help you reconnect to nature, to the herd, and to your own community.
If you can influence horses, then influencing a 200 pound human being is not such a big deal.
Linda observed early on how horses respond to people in their presence, highlighting their hidden gifts, wounds, vulnerabilities, or unhealthy social habits. And yet, the horses manage to be discerning without a hint of judgment, communicating instead that you are beautiful, powerful, wise, and capable of endless renewal. Linda tells us how she harnessed this unique relationship between humans and horses to help people embrace a fresh perspective and new approach to everyday life or even manage trauma.
Her program employs horses in teaching people leadership, personal empowerment, intuition, and emotional fitness skills. Through exercises in nonverbal communication, Linda’s human/horse engagements help people develop assertiveness and leadership presence, learn to enhance their relationships, create strong teams, and build paths to better conflict resolution.
