What is The EcoART Process?


Well, it is not a program of haphazardly pulled together random methods.  It is the incredibly well-organized and easy to follow step-by-step nature-assisted stress relief core of our Soul On Fire training series.  It's all about allowing the wilderness without to help you balance the wilderness within and awaken your greatest self.  Simply put, The EcoART Process engages you in a sense-based information exchange with nature -- it's about learning directly from Nature, from horses and decoding the messages you gather there through the creative process of EcoART. 

This unique and innovative approach brings the learning home kinesthetically, spiritually and mindfully. It is the essential missing-link that sets you up for success.  Using fun and insightful NAL, EAL and EcoART therapy tools in an objectively-driven, educational process, you further your personal development, finding new passions, releasing the pain of old wounds and redefining your sense of self.  Current research has proven that expressive art and nature immersion are as valuable to your well-being as meditation and a good night's rest.  This EcoART Process program expands on these findings and guides you to integrate a fun and easy personal practice into your daily life, while providing you with the support and tools to be successful.


What is NAL and EAL? 

NAL or Nature-Assisted Learning (eco-psychology) is a learner based educational experience with nature.  Equine-Assisted Learning or EAL is a non-riding learner based educational experience with horses.  More specifically, together NAL and EAL are an effective approach to human development that encourages individual and relationship growth.  You engage in objectively driven exercises and find yourself learning valuable life skills in a fun and exciting atmosphere while working with nature and horses.



...AND WHY SHOULD I CARE?

When you get up close and personal with Nature through The EcoART Process, you DISCOVER validated, experiential learning, positively reinforced interactions, Art, Nature and Horses.  You DISCOVER a step-by-step growth process that promotes results in the following areas:

how stressed are you?


Life is a series of stressful events.  A combination of many differing degrees or levels of stress certainly.  

There's stress that comes from challenges and goals set and completed, and there's stress that comes from unexpected events, from change.  Self-initiated events or those out of our control.  

The number of stressors in your life and how you go about the checks and balances of self-care can determine your overall stress quotient.  JUST HOW HOT IS THE FIRE?



why learn from NATURE?


“Although many signals from Nature escape our perception, our life affinities exist on all levels.  In as many as 54 different ways, we might sense the natural environment because we are a continuum of it.  It is in us.  Our natural senses are our felt kinship with Earth and each other.  They are unexplored roads to personal and global sanity.”

Why Horses? 


Horses are tough and steadfast dance partners.  Horses consistently react to stimulus provided by participants.  Some of the joys associated with working around horses are -- they don’t judge but they constantly assess.  Their feedback is honest and instant.  Learning to listen to what horses have to say is powerful and can sometimes spur the answer to individual change.  By including horses in specially designed educational exercises, equine-assisted facilitators have greatly multiplied the participant’s rate of success to self discovery.  How?

Horses can magnify an individual’s problem immediately and provide a skilled facilitator with an opportunity to identify an individual’s character.  Horses don’t over think a participant’s motive but horses do challenge their behaviour and leadership.

So, why bother connecting with Nature through the EcoART Process?  Because it is the essential missing-link building block to growing love and inner peace in our crazy-making world.  It is the place where personal growth starts.  But most of all, it's about inspiration, about setting your Soul on Fire.
