This is a general description of the event. Every event with Kerri is unique. To serve the participants, the timing of exercises and discussions may change to provide the best experience.
No horse experience is necessary! Being in the presence of animals provides a sense of presence that is natural to humans as well. The animals are brilliant partners to open up and know that side of ourselves.
To listen like a horse is to listen without judgment and communicate with a priority of senses before intellect. When you come to know yourself in this state of being, you join the animals where they live each day.
Day 1 - Saturday
Our first half-day is all about listening. This is our time to get to know one another, to introduce the Tools to you, and to get clear on how the day and a half can be structured for you. If you've brought a horse(s) with you, we will go out and say hello! Taking the half-day to introduce these concepts and language will provide a solid foundation for your learning. Ask any question you like at any time - the most important point of this event is that you leave feeling empowered and equipped to bring these tools to life in your unique world.
Day 2 - Sunday
This is our time to really experience the tools. It's a bit of classroom time with several breaks to walk outside, visit the horses and feel yourself with expanded sensory ability. For many people, navigating with senses is like learning a whole new language. The Tools make it easier. It's kind of like being in kindergarten again, with permission to play in the innocence of not-knowing. Buddhists might call it "beginner's mind," but I prefer to call it exploration. I will show you how to use what you already know to step with courage into the unknown. The animals always recognize when humans play this way - it feels good. The real gold comes from your questions - how can we make this really relevant in YOUR world?
