IHC has once again partnered with a California-based non-profit organization, Rockrose Institute to offer Steadfast, A Communication Practice on June 22-24th held at the Rockrose Ranch in Nicasio, California (Marin County).
This program addresses conflict through collaboration via ground work with horses. Led by Maja Ramsey, a lawyer and mediator and Kathleen, IHC’s CEO, this program provides learners with a cognitively, emotionally, and behaviorally active learning experience focused on equestrian ground skills while working in small teams (two participants teamed with a horse).
All teams are led through structured physical exercises and debriefing to communicate both verbally and through body language to:
- Improve capacity for being fully present
- Enhance listening skills
- Set clear intention
- Identify and shift emotions
- Follow through (action)
- Remain unattached to the outcome.
The program is held over a 3-day weekend with a strong focus on opportunities for reflective practice through journaling, guided debriefings, discussion, and action commitment.
WHY CONSIDER THIS?
This annual hands-on experience has been offered for the past five years and has been experienced by a wide variety of professionals including physicians, attorneys, judges, veterinarians, and students of life-long learning. This program provides a unique opportunity to increase your capacity to handle conflict and to practice collaborative leadership, all while working with horses.
