Retreat Reflection. Last Friday — the horses and their partners basically lived together all day... circles, journaling, grooming, learning, sharing, laughing, playing, all in the presence of grace and acceptance - horses do that for us! . . . #authenticselfretreat #awomanslifeequine #womenandhorses #daringgreatly #relationalequineassistedlearning #thrivingwomen #vulnerabilityisstrength #equineassistedlearning #risingstrong #hearts #grateful @lauralcswc @lisaswan06 @ckyrh
Thank you to all of you who support me on this journey to pursuing my passion for supporting and creating spaces for women to play, grow, learn. . . In just two and 1/2 days the 2nd Authentic Self: Daring Way ™️ and Horses Retreat happens at this place... a beautiful group of women will gather here-some arriving from places beyond Kentucky while others are driving from closer addresses. Each looking for all those good things that authenticity, braving, and being willing to try something new bring. . Well, all the things are in place for you. Safe travels and @lauralcswc and @lisaswan06 and I look forward to seeing you on Friday morning!. . . . #awomanslifeequine #helpingwomenthrive #relationalequineassistedlearning #horsesandwomen #brenebrown #daringgreatly #holdingspace #passionandpurpose #meettheherd
When creating relationship- it’s important to understand how we and the other partner in the relationship communicate and experience the world. . . Thank you Ilka for today’s post❤️. www.mindsnmotionsymposium.org . . . #relationalequineassistedlearning #awomanslifeequine #respect #knowing #horsesofinstagram
A week of women and horses! This is @lisaswan06 showing our #liferhythmsgroup how to saddle their horses with the exquisite #fabian as our demo horse... Talk centered around resiliency, curiosity, and allowing uncertainty. The woman on the left is @kcj531 who is my partner in our #eastt group. That group focused on identifying and understanding triggers, boundaries, and having a voice. Two very different groups — one mounted, one non-mounted. But both are supporting growth, health, and change through partnerships with horses. . . . . #lovethiswork #horsesandwomen #relationalequineassistedlearning #teammates #celebratingthisweek #change #horsesofinstagram #pathintl #resiliency #awomanslifeequine #groupwork #equineassistedlearning
First Life Rhythms Group!!! Oh how I love this work!!! Today we experienced mindfulness, laying down agendas, judgements, perfectionism, unhelpful thinking, and met our four horse herd. What a great group of women! Connection, challenge, and presence! Anyone else needing good doses of that stuff? We had it in abundance today! #horsemanshipandlife #awomanslifeequine #journeytowholeheartedness #womenandhorses #liferhythms #relationalequineassistedlearning #newgroup #lexingtonkentucky #pathintl #brave #mindfulnessandhorses #liam #doc #steve #lizmore

Brave women headed this way! #awomanslifeequine #daringway #brenebrown #equineassistedlearning #horsesandwomen #cultivatewhatmatters #eagala #pathintl #relationalequineassistedlearning
Just a girl and a horse- this gal rescued this horse, trained him, and is now prepping him for work with @ckyrh veterans’ program. @skiptomyliam is a pretty phenomenal young woman and has worked hard to build trust and confidence in this guy who had learned humans were not to be trusted. They are a wonder to watch! #behindthescenes #awomanslifeequine #equineassistedlearning #relationship #relationalequineassistedlearning #real #rescuehorse #liam #trainthemup #womenempoweringwomen #lovethisplace #therapistforwomen #lexingtonky #horsesandwomen

This is a piece of the REAL session @lauralcswc took part in the first of June as we were plotting and planning the October Authentic Self Retreat— Laura and I talk about this during @therapychatpod (link in bio). Repost @lauralcswc ・・・ A few weeks ago I went to visit Charlotte Hiler Easley @awomanslifeequine LCSW in Lexington, Kentucky, where she works with her clients. There, Charlotte and our beautiful colleague and friend Lisa Swanson @lisaswan06 so kindly walked me through a Relational Equine Assisted Learning experience because (1) I needed to feel some horse interaction; and (2) so we could talk about it on the podcast! In just a few days, that podcast episode will be released. For now, here’s a tiny taste of the experience that I shared with Charlotte, Lisa and Aksel, the Norwegian Fjord horse I was paired with for 45 minutes and now have a special love for in my heart. Stay tuned for more of our beautiful experience and that podcast interview discussion on @therapychatpod later this week! #womenandhorses #awomanslifeequine #relationship #equineassistedlearning #relationalequineassistedlearning
A huge thank you to @markmahan for this picture. This horse has been in every group, workshop, retreat I’ve run since my internship @ckyrh - gratitude is an understatement when I consider the healing journeys that this horse has supported and showed himself trustworthy. #relationalequineassistedlearning #awomanslifeequine #womenandhorses #helpingwomenthrive #relationship #grateful
This looks like an empty arena with some cones and a ball— but oh my friends, it is so much more than that. This is a collaborative representation celebrating faith and courage! What you can’t see is that the cones spell out BRAVE... the ball is each of us... horse partner supported brave woman as she and horse in relationship pushed the ball through the word. #womenoffaith #womenofcourage #awomanslifeequine #equineassistedlearning #brave #horsesandwomen #horsesofinstagram #youareenough #relationalequineassistedlearning #experiential #creatives #amazedbutnotsurprised #wholehearted #bigandbold #stepping up #godisinthemidst

Play time before group. One rolling, one watching everyone, and two playing ‘tag’. An environment ripe for life metaphors and mindfulness. #lovemywork #awomanslifeequine #horsesofinstagram #apalaminoathoroughbredandtwopaints #womenandhorses #checkingin #empowerment #equineassistedtherapy #relationalequineassistedlearning #wholeheartedliving #resilience
This is “the EASTT team”. Each equine group is facilitated by a team consisting of mental health professionals, equine professionals, and horses. This is the human team of facilitators for this fall’s Equine Assisted Survivors of Trauma Therapy Group (EASTT) minus me who is trying to set the timer for a group picture! We never got the group pic— but we sure did laugh!!
