Life Coaching

Our process of Core Energy Coaching with a Certified Professional Coach helps the client identify and overcome the issues blocking them from making their goals and dreams a reality. This coaching process focuses on heart issues that are preventing them from moving forward in life. It may be in many areas of their life or in only one area. Although change is not necessarily controllable, our impressions of it and reactions to it are. It isn’t easy for anyone to deal with some of the issues that come up throughout their life but with the help of a Life Coach, clients not only manage but can learn to thrive in the face of life’s circumstances. Whether it’s a change in career, death of someone close, family situations, divorce, health situations, children leaving home, changing schools, moving across the country or anything else that creates stress in a person’s life, healing and positive action is a choice that can be made. Once a client reaches their “AHA” moment through coaching either with or without the horses, their hearts are open to seeing a new perspective about the things in their life that are holding them back and the purposes for their pain. That moment becomes the catalyst for change so their focus moves from what’s not working to what will work. By learning the tools of ‘Focused Leadership’, clients will learn to lead their lives. Learning how to raise their awareness through the seven levels of leadership reveals a powerful new way to view life. Once they are more aware, the changes made are energizing and life becomes more joyful!

    • The Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Assessment can be taken by individuals or leaders as a proven way to measure how an individual perceives and approaches work and life and reacts to different circumstances and experiences. As individuals, we view the world through filters (based on our experiences, values, assumptions, etc.). Those filters will either limit what we see (like tunnel vision) or expand what we see (like a prism) and, thus, impact how we perceive and what we think about our circumstances. This, in turn, impacts how we show up in different situations. The Energy Leadership Index assessment reveals what specific filters you’ve developed and how those filters are influencing the results you’re achieving. Click here to take the assessment.


Equine Assisted Learning

While partnering with horses as co-teachers, this experiential learning process called Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) or Equine Facilitated Wellness (EFW) allows people of all ages and abilities to gain a better understanding of how their beliefs, thoughts and actions are shaping their lives. Through coaching and engaging with leadership group 11-14 052horses and other farm animals, experiential learning teaches important life skills and relational skills while helping clients develop a deeper awareness of their true motivations. The team engages the horses with the client so the animals can help the clients discover their own path to resolution. The behavior of the animals in various activities gives subtle indications to the participants on how their current “state” or outlook is affecting them and those around them. Learning from the horses raises the client’s awareness and consciousness of how they communicate from their very core. Through the sessions the horses can help clients identify and explore feelings that they were unaware of or were unacknowledged. Horses never question who they are. Each horse has a trust and a belief in themselves because they do not have an emotional component mentally second guessing themselves and holding them back. They are completely authentic and show us how to break free from our multiple masks so we can be authentic too. In a non-threatening and fun environment deep insights can be learned about our perception of ourselves, others and God. Utilizing these powerful animals helps clients overcome fear and build confidence. With their individual personalities, moods and attitudes, they are perfect for metaphorical learning. Every session is completely unique, sometimes divine and always memorable.

Inner Healing

Many people are hurting emotionally these days from pain that’s taken root in their hearts from past and present circumstances. As they view their life through these negative lenses it is hard for them to move forward with their life. This causes stress for themselves and their families, ultimately leading to destruction of health, finances and relationships. With prayer, the Father’s love and inner healing work, we invite the Holy Spirit to heal and repair those wounds while teaching supportive and positive beliefs and a renewed mind that leads to powerful and consistent new action. Once clients identify the lies they are believing and learn a new way to think, feel, and act, they set the stage for creating sustainable change. After breaking free from their fears and negative mindset, clients are able to see the future with a different perspective and energy. With this raised awareness, attaining their God given destiny in life becomes a reality, their passion for life is renewed and they learn how to channel their thoughts into the positive abundant life Jesus promised us. Many physical ailments and diseases can be healed when the heart is healed. The human heart has the capacity to heal all wounds through the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. It’s a choice!

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
