Natural Lifemanship Conference Announcement

Join us October 17-19, 2019 for a Deep Dive into Natural Lifemanship:

Trauma Informed Specialties within Equine Assisted Practice

Join us at beautiful Miracle Farm in Brenham, TX to take a deeper look into integrating NL with other trauma-informed specialties. The conference schedule allows you to immerse yourself in one specialty each day. It’s like attending three day-long trainings in one long weekend. Treat yourself to a 4th day to experience one modality in a personal way, retreat-style. Keynote speakers include Philip Tedeschi and Leif Hallberg.

ATTEND OUR NEXT WEBINAR

Understanding Trauma Informed Care is for Everyone!
Wednesday, Jul 31st, 2019 | 3:00PM to 4:00PM Central Time

The truth is that most of us have experienced some level of trauma. We all have experienced things that negatively affect our brain’s ability to function at optimal capacity. This makes it challenging to find a calm connection to self and others.

Trauma informed care (TIC) is about becoming empowered to organize or reorganize the brain by understanding how the brain and body develop.  One of the basic tenets of TIC is that we can help the brain develop and heal through “bottom-up regulation.”

During this webinar, NL founders, Tim Jobe and Bettina Shultz-Jobe, will discuss the basic tenets of TIC and bottom-up regulation based on Dr. Bruce Perry’s Neurosequential Model.  They will allow you to grasp and apply complex concepts to your life and your relationships – to heal instead of hurt.  If a calm, regulated, connection is a priority for you, you won’t want to miss this webinar!
