ABOUT US

 

 

Mom-Daughter-HorseNATURAL LIFEMANSHIP IS THE NEW STANDARD IN EQUINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY.

Natural Lifemanship developed Trauma-Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (TF-EAP™), which is based on the neuroscience of human and horse brain development, the impact of trauma, and the role of relationships in recovery and healing. We regularly offer Fundamentals (basic) and Intensive (advanced) trainings as well as certifications in TF-EAP. Our intentional and relational way of working with horses in the therapy process has become the new standard in EAP. Learn more.

NATURAL LIFEMANSHIP TEACHES SCIENCE-BASED PRINCIPLES FOR BUILDING CONNECTED RELATIONSHIPS THAT HELP INDIVIDUALS, FAMILIES, COMMUNITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS THRIVE AND FLOURISH.

We train adults in Natural Lifemanship for professional and personal applications unrelated to EAP. All of our trainings convey the developmental neuroscience at the foundation of trauma-informed care, and the relationship principles we’ve found effective in helping humans and horses connect in ways that heal and transform both. The Natural Lifemanship model is based on principles for building connected partnerships with horses in ways that are readily transferrable to human relationships. We often include horses in our trainings so that people can experience the principles at work in the context of a real relationship with the immediate and honest feedback that horses uniquely give.

“Applying evidence-based principles about brain development aligns well with my theoretical foundations for working with clients. The relational piece is key.” – Participant, Fundamentals of Natural Lifemanship for Substance Use Recovery and Addictions, July 21, 2016
