To learn more about Lauren and the magic of Equine Gestalt Coaching, read the Davis Phinney Foundation For Parkinson’s blog.

Here is an excerpt from the blog:
We recently had a chance to speak with Lauren Munger, a certified Equine Gestalt Method Coach in the Boulder area. Lauren worked with children and adults for over 30 years as a counselor and workshop leader, and in 2011 she began adding horses to her work. Diagnosed with atypical Parkinsonism in 2015, and after using everything she’d learned about horses to help herself heal from the trauma of receiving the diagnosis and from symptoms that were progressing quite fast, Lauren decided to share this work with others who want to live well with Parkinson’s.

A Hero’s Journey With Horses is a workshop in self-discovery. Developed from years of studying horse behavior, in this workshop horses help humans discover their own heroic qualities and learn self-respect and respect for others. The exercises in the workshop teach the participants about feelings and how to communicate effectively and contact with the horses offers loving support and how to be in the moment. The result is unequivocally that which inspires the human to believe in themselves. Read more about the program.

The Horse Connection; Women/Horses

Ever since we were young girls there has been a magical connection with horses. A spiritual and private unexplained bond between us. This is a group where women can get their “horse fix” and explore together in depth what that connection is about. We will interact with the herd at Acres Of Opportunity Ranch in Lafayette, CO. Through mindfulness meditation, grooming, walking and just simply being with horses will allow a deep and rich experience to emerge. Art, storytelling and personal sharing willbe the avenues of integration.
