What is Equine-Assisted Coaching?

The word Equine means: a horse / relating to horses. Equine-Assisted Coaching is a way of collaborating with horses that focuses on learning from and with them to deepen and empower our awareness of ourselves as embodied, energetic and relational beings of nature.

My Equine-Assisted Coaching approach is trauma-informed and rooted in yoga. I recognize racial, economic, ecological and other social injustices to be rooted in the trauma that naturally results when the sacredness of our relationships to our bodies, to one other and to the earth is disrupted due to colonialism and domination-based paradigms. We work with in collaboration with the horses to directly reconnect the body and the community to that sacredness. Equine-supported self-inquiry, meditation, mantra, and pranayama (breath work) offer us a social justice leadership approach that attends to the embodied and spiritual trauma from which injustice is perpetuated. It also provides an educational and healing space for relating to the body, the energy of emotion and the somatic unconscious.

I am an apprentice of Brooke Sullivan and The Wild Temple and have completed their 500hr Yoga Teacher Training. I work with Sri Vidya Tantra Yoga from the Himalayan Sage Tradition. Sri Vidya Tantra Yoga is an ancient science of perceiving, understanding and awakening vitality, subtle energy, and the power of nature.

"Tantra is a pretty vague word and a lot of people have different associations to it, but Tantra is a science of energy. It's a really beautiful complete life science that studies the nature of energy and power in nature and how we can work with these powers for our healing and our connection into the world. And even for helping heal our planet and helping us and our planet evolve." Brooke Sullivan, Director of The Wild Temple

Horses are an embodiment of physical and spiritual power. Horses are anchored in the unified field, their consciousness is available to us across space and time. We connect with them through breath and meditation. You can take part from wherever you are located in the world.

We can communicate with horses through our hearts across any distance. To prepare the body and mind to connect with this subtle and complex way of being, this course guides you through a series of trauma-informed yoga practices involving mantra, equine-assisted meditation, pranayama, and gentle asana. This series of mantras and meditations awaken you into a place that is supported by nature and the horses, where all aspects of yourself can be heard. In this state, everyone belongs and is welcome to express the truth of who they are.

Initiation refers to the experience and the empowerment of learning the tools to cultivate this experience for yourself so that it is grounded, practical, and not mysterious. Through learning this process, you can be more aware of a subtle level of relationship with the horses. This is the place where you can learn from, heal with, and rest inside of the consciousness and wisdom within horses' luminous quality of attention.

I am offering a 50% scholarship option for those who need support paying for the $111 online equine-assisted trauma-informed yoga course I offer. To inquire about the scholarship please email Jamila at EmbodiedLeadershipProject@gmail.com (with this scholarship, the cost will only be $55).


More about Equine-Assisted Process

The way I approach Equine-Assisted Coaching at the Embodied Leadership Project exists within a relatively new field of equine practice that is aimed less at what we can teach the horse and more on what we can learn from the horse as a leader and wisdom keeper in their own right. This equine field is referred to by several different names depending on who the equine specialist is and where they trained such as: Equine Assisted Practice/Learning (EAP/L), Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL), or Equine Assisted Growth and Development (EAGD).

Diedre West, owner of Healing with Horse Collective, speaks beautifully about this work:

“There is a distinction to be made here: equine specialists working in the realms of EAP/L see horses as the guides or sources of wisdom rather than as the learners in client interactions. Rather than their ability to be ridden or their athleticism being the focus, horses’ ways of being, seeing, and processing, and engaging with the world opens sources of wisdom and enlightenment about our inner selves, our relational dynamics, and all those forces that make us yearn, change, transform, and do things we would not otherwise do (whether creative, destructive, or genius) if we were truly logical, exclusively conscious beings.

That focus on horse as a sentient being full of wisdoms we do not have, distinguishes the goals for working with horses in this field from most every other equine field out there, including natural horsemanship and most liberty training. This is a profound shift about which practitioners find there is an onion-peeling sort of learning to get to the heart of, not just for our clients but for ourselves and our practice/facilitation.”
