Psychodynamically Oriented Art Therapy
What is art therapy?
The techniques of art therapy are based on the knowledge that every individual, whether trained or untrained in art, has a latent capacity to project his/her inner conflicts into visual form. As clients picture such inner experiences, it frequently happens that they become more verbally articulate, which is a tremendous asset when working with adolescents and young children.
The drawing process itself is not the sole therapeutic agent. When art is used as a way of expressing personal feelings, and thoughts, and these are discussed afterwards, a person can gain insight both intellectually and emotionally by connecting the meaning of the picture with his/her own life experience. By focusing on the often spontaneously created art, many aspects of oneself, possibly previously hidden, may become clear.
Art therapy may be used alone or in conjunction with other modalities at Spirit Horse Run.

Shamballa Multidimensional Healing System
Also known as Shamballa Reiki, SMHS is an energy healing modality. Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Energy and is similar in meaning to the Indian word Prana, or the Chinese word Chi. In Japan, Reiki is used in general language to mean the energy of Source. In North America the word Reiki has become synonymous with the laying-on-of-hands technique which allows the loving Universal Energies to flow through one person into another to help clear energy blockages.
Shamballa , therefore, is a wonderful natural extension of the practice of reiki adding more energies and many other techniques to clear your light-body.
Shamballa Reiki at Spirit Horse Run is used in conjunction with other modalities offered.
Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning – FEEL
What is FEEL? – Humans learn best through direct experience. In the FEEL process the horses engage with us – learning by doing. All activities with the horses are done on the ground, no riding involved and no previous horse experience is required.
Horses are highly intuitive due to their prey nature. They assist us in expanding our non-verbal awareness, which, psychologists have determined accounts for 90% of our communication and yet in modern day society we seem to be ruled by the spoken word.
Horses become our mirrors, reflecting back to us that which we sometimes try to hide. They shed light on unconscious behavior patterns in non-judgmental, gentle ways.
Horses live by the expression, actions speak louder than words, thereby eliciting from within us our most genuine, authentic selves.
Rapid change can occur with individuals engaging with the horses through the group dynamics created within the safety and confidentiality of the workshops.
The FEEL process may be used alone or in conjunction with other modalities offered at Spirit Horse Run.
Cost is $120 - 90 minutes plus HST
*With a commitment and prepayment of 3 sessions, the cost is $100 plus HST per session.
