What is "experiential learning"?
Experiential lessons are carefully crafted and facilitated "experiences" with the intent to develop a deeper awareness and connection to our inner natural resources. They can be accomplished with or without assistance from animals. Natural Whisperings offers both types.
Equine Experiential Learning (with Horses):
Equine Experiential Learning is comprised of experiences with a horse on the ground. No previous horse or animal experience is needed. The safety of the environment is an essential part of all work done here. Each session has a specific topic, a lead-in exercise, a purposeful experience and a take away message. All lessons build on the experience of the previous one. Sign up for a single 2-hour session, a bundled series, or a small group workshop. Commit to all seven levels over a period of time. Getting to dance with horses is really worth it!
The Progressive 7 Series: (Experiential Lessons)
1. Nonverbal Introduction
2. Emotional Tools
3. Healthy Boundaries
4. Reflective Awareness
5. Nurturing Relationship
6. Energy Modulation
7. Dancing with Horses
For all sessions at the farm, be sure to wear closed-toed shoes and layers, including a rain jacket and a hat, if you like. We will send you more info and directions, once payment has been received.

Experiential Classes (w/o Horses):
Interested in our Natural Whisperings workshops but just not ready to work with horses? Well, you are in luck! We are offering part of those experiences to you in brief 2-hour individual or group Personal Energy Classes. We use numerous experiential exercises in each class to give you the essence of the lessons in The Progressive 7 Series, without horses. We have also created some exercises which lend themselves better to indoor learning such as experiential tea tasting and an energy treasure hunt. Beverages and snacks are included.
