How is the Eagala Model different? How can horses really make a difference?
Eagala professionals are trained in structuring sessions so that their clients can explore painful experiences and discover strengths through a client-directed process. Through this process, we are able to facilitate the unlocking of a person’s innate ability to find their own solutions.
Science says people learn best by doing. The Eagala Model prescribes a hands-on approach where clients are given the space to project and analyze their situations, and to find their own solutions.
Emotional safety is created by not needing to talk – simply being in the presence of the horses can open avenues to deeper healing. There is a natural unfolding that occurs for the client as they are free to explore and ponder and listen within themselves for insights.
We focus on the horses and symbols, and in this way, clients can externalize what is happening inside them into the physical space. The horses’ unique sensitivity can help clients understand their own internal processes more readily than hours of talking.
Rather than the facilitators directing the process, the client discovers and chooses for themselves.
By allowing your client’s life story to unfold through the horses and the external elements in the environment, they begin to understand their inner world, thoughts, and behaviors and change occurs naturally. They discover their own answers and they become empowered to change their story.
Since these solutions are personally experienced at emotional and physical levels in conjunction with intellectual understanding, they tend to be deeper, more profound, and longer lasting.
With Eagala’s innovative approach, we believe in our clients and the unique abilities of our horses, and unlock a person’s innate ability to find their own solutions, regain control of their lives, and create lasting solutions.
