Managing your issues

Zig and BE at work

It was practice for the “real”world outside of rehab when they would really have to manage their triggers and their denial.  Those were the metaphors they named the horses and their jobs were to get the horses to go to the pockets they designated ahead of time as a group while staying in a line between the buckets.  They went through a lot!  The horses were running everywhere and the group was split and chaotic, but then they made a big shift and got themselves together.  Once their triggers were managed they could turn all their attention on their denial.  This lesson won’t soon be forgotten by anyone who was lucky enough to participate in this Equine Assisted Psychotherapy session..

That’s what these teenage boys named this pony because they thought she would be the easiest because of her size. They said adults also underestimate them. So what are we, as a society, expecting from our young people?

Anchoring the experience.

People Learning by Doing

Experiential learning works because of the ‘doing’.  Distinct from just talking about what we did or what we are going to do, valuable but different than doing. What is unforgettable in this photo?  What is the anchor that will recreate this experience for those ladies? Is it the bright sunny day?  The soft ponies nose, the horse laying down, the colorful parachute, the company, the serene feeling of being in a crowd, yet completely in an intimate moment? Is it just that this pony is as tall standing up as this girl sitting down?  It’s all up to the individual to ‘take away’ the anchor that will bring  this experience into their lives outside of the arena.

 

 

Serenity…

Being Serene

 

The  Group wanted to work on things in recovery that they knew they needed but didn’t know how to get or keep.  Serenity was only one of the three tools in recovery that they named and that is her laying in the leaves.  The moment they named her, she went directly over, pawed in the leaves and proceeded to have a nap, right there in the arena with the entire group of people watching.  

When they needed to use "Serenity" She was ready and available.

When they needed “Serenity” She was ready and available.

As soon as it was time to apply Serenity to their recovery journey in the exercise, she woke up, looked around, had a stretch and did exactly what they wanted.  She was a fine example for this group of women in how to use “serenity” in early recovery.
