F.E.E.L.

Kaileen St. Antoine and Cindy MacDonald, two of the Greenshire farm partners, are  certified Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning (F.E.E.L.) practitioners. They offer private, semi-private, and group F.E.E.L. sessions and workshops to the public. FEEL programs are non-riding and no previous horse experience is necessary.

F.E.E.L. is a fast-growing, unique and very powerful resource for anyone looking to make positive changes in their life. On the Dr. Oz Show (May 12, 2010), Equine-Assisted Therapy, a field closely related to F.E.E.L., was listed as the second most popular alternative therapy currently in use.

At F.E.E.L. workshops, the horses are the teachers. Sound strange?  Horses are clear communicators, aware of and react to energy and non-verbal signals, nonjudgmental, strong-willed, resilient, forgiving, know how to live in the moment, and are authentic in their actions – they show how they’re feeling and never wear a mask hiding their true emotion. Sounds like we can learn a lot from them.

~ Learn leadership and managerial skills ~ Regain joy in your life ~ Build self-confidence ~ Improve communication skills ~ Listen to your emotions ~ Enhance self-awareness ~ Attain balance in your life ~ Discover inner wisdom and strength ~ Manage stress by “going with the flow” ~ Learn not to lose your temper and regret it later ~ Rediscover creativity and become inspired ~ Let the horses be your guide ~

Where do you fit in? Are you or anyone in your life:

  • Overwhelmed or stressed?
  • Feeling like life is passing you by and you’re having trouble reaching your goals?
  • Having problems in your relationships (personal or business)?
  • Feeling depressed or anxious?
  • Lacking self-confidence?
  • Feeling angry, like your patience is always being tried?
  • Having difficulty communicating or being heard?
  • Feeling joyless, apathetic, stagnant or uncreative?
  • Feeling lost and out of balance?

The Healing Horse Centre at Greenshire Eco Farms can help you, your children, loved ones, co-workers, boss, friends, and the community as a whole.  We have all felt society’s pressure, some form of stress or abuse, and a general disconnect with the spirit inside us, and we can all benefit from the majestic horse’s teachings.

How did we become interested in  Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning? In August 2010, Kaileen arranged for Cindy and herself to participate in  a F.E.E.L. workshop at the Anahata Horse Centre in Bancroft, Ontario. That experience was the phenomenal catalyst for our taking the F.E.E.L. facilitator certification program, taught at Horse Spirit Connections in Tottenham, Ontario. We graduated in May 2011 and are now sharing the horse’s teachings with those who seek change and fun in their lives. Read testimonials to Cindy, Kaileen and the horse as teacher. The great thing about F.E.E.L. is it helps the horses as much as the people! That makes it truly win-win-win in our books, perfectly fitting into the Greenshire mandate of “Growing a Greater Good” for all.
