EQUINE FACILITATED EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROCESS WORK
The purpose of ADVENTURES IN AWARENESS™ (AIA) is to develop awareness
and expand consciousness while enhancing an individual's ability to be
responsible for self, and thus, contribute to the safety of the group,
through work with horses.
This equine facilitated experiential learning process work is suitable for
individuals of any age interested in achieving clarity of life purpose,
rewarding interpersonal relationships, and compassionate heart centered
communication skills. Carefully structured interactive exercises are designed to
create bonding, promote team building, and develop personal insights. The AIA
process promotes working with horses as reflective (mirror principle – "what I
see in you, is also in me") of our personal and interpersonal relationships.
My name is Lindsey Whitelaw and I come from a background in Design and Business.
I am an artist and trained Horse Assisted Educator and bring a unique
combination of life skills and creativity to this people based programme.
For over 30 years I have practiced as a Landscape architect and co-founded a
successful award winning practice, Whitelaw Turkington. Apart from building up a
reputation for design excellence, the success of the business was about our
people and our skills. Our teams were able to communicate and engender a sense
of pride and ownership in the natural and designed environment.
People were at the heart of my design business, both as clients and colleagues
and in SilentHorsePower, I offer a people based life skills programme, with
horses as the educators.
I am based in London and run workshops and 1 to 1 sessions at The Fortune Centre
of Riding Therapy in The New Forest, Hampshire where I have wonderful facilities
and 32 horses. I also work in association with colleagues Julia Felton based in
Sussex and Jackie Davis in Surrey. I live part time in Cyprus and run workshops
in glorious Lysos with Caroline Penman.
