“The most basic and powerful way to connect to another is to listen.  Just listen.  Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention… It often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.”

-Rachel Naomi Remen

I have a lot of natural horsemanship experience…what else can you teach me?

Congratulations with all your natural horsemanship training! This should make it easier for you to take in all that we are teaching with the Craniosacral part of our class. You probably have a really good feel with ‘pressure and release’ and the timing of things. Now lets take this into bodywork. Same concept, different application. Are you ready to open up into such a deep feel with the horse in this new way?

What if I can’t ‘feel’ it?

We teach ‘feel’ in this class! The class is set up so you will feel the craniosacral rhythm (CSR). It is a very subtle rhythm and can be challenging to feel, especially when you are just starting. In our first class, we spend time playing with palpation skills to help you. The more you practice, the easier it will become to recognize the feel of the CSR. And by watching the horse’s response, you will know you are facilitating changes with them. We want to know where your strengths and struggles are with your CET learning process – so we can assist you along your path. We have a few tasks for you between classes to aid your learning process. We want you to feel successful and connected with CET.

I can’t say enough about this course and how it was organized and especially, how it was taught.  Karen and Abbey are a dynamic team and there was no doubt how much thought, preparation and let’s face it, joy in the subject matter was put forth in order to successfully teach the CET course.  I LOVED our small group because the discussion and hands-on time afforded us a lot of opportunity not only to talk about and practice the material but to learn from each other and our experiences in the field as well as various questions that came up.
