Can you see this image? Is it one horse? Or two? Look closer! It is TWO horses, standing side by side.

This is Duke and Jem, both stunning chestnuts with hair color almost identical. They look like twins, they are so closely collaborating together! Collaboration is a wonderful thing…it enlarges the two separate entities, and increases their effectiveness. AND, that is EXACTLY what we will be doing on August 17th!! The Resonant Horse is SO HAPPY to be partnering with the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center!! AND…this workshop is open to the public!! Join us!! It just might change your life!!

Come join us at a this one day workshop. The morning session with Mindy and horses will not involve riding horses, rather you will learn much by noticing their responses towards you. You’ll discover possible areas of fear, tension, and anxiety, while allowing the horses to be your gentle guide,
The day will offer:
* Allowing horses to help you come back to yourself; slow down, notice, feel and heal.
* The chance to spend time on a working horse farm, exploring and renewing your mind, body and heart
* Surrounded by animals, learning from the intuitive wisdom of horses, you can rest and renew, all the while in the healing environment

Mindy Chernoff, MA, provides a novel and innovative approach to healing using horses as a context for promoting self-esteem and a sense of competence. Within a safe environment, which she has called “The Resonant Horse,” together with the horse, she explores areas of resistance, fear, discomfort, love and acceptance. Mindy feels every life lesson can be learned in the barn. Her primary goal is to build upon each individual’s positive traits, encouraging a sense of calm, contentment, and freedom to let go.
