"This program was more than about just learning, it was about nurturing a sense of wholeness and trust within this group.  There is a sense of closeness that comes with knowing others see you and exhibit a sense of understanding.  It was also about celebrating differences, that it is not about creating a carbon copy of the facilitator, but of taking what one is learning and creating something that is unique to you. 

 

This program has allowed me to release the familiar story of “doing it right”.  This quote by Rumi, “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.  I'll meet you there,” really describes what it was like to be a participant in The Healing Herd Program."

Constellations with Horses

Constellations with Horses give us a way to harvest the body’s wisdom. Through this work we strengthen our social engagement system and we can begin to unwind and unravel the frozen strands of trauma from our essential self, so that we can flourish, live, and contribute our gifts with ease.​​

"I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to experience a deepening in their personal growth, a heightened awareness of self and an improved relational sense with others. 

 

I would also recommend this program to anyone who wants to experience the amazing healing power of animals, big ones! I would like to add that having a “herd” to connect with, play with, grow with was unexpected enjoyable and satisfying.

 

As I learned to trust the horses, I learned to trust myself. As I opened to the “herd”, both human and animal, my sense of real connection grew. I then began to feel closer to others and my sense of having real community grew and felt very nourishing.” 

- Dr. Betsy Arndt

Gloria’s Program is Inspired By:

Sarah Peyton’s Constellation Theory:

 

"Constellation work is a particular way of looking at questions and blocks we have in our lives. It is a spatial exploration of a relational question, using different positions, representatives, objects or people to look at how things are connected with one another and where systems might be frozen by entanglements or traumas."

and Bert Helligner's 

Orders of Love:

 

"The Order of Love method is a solution-oriented therapy. It is subjected to natural orders and laws existing within the family or any system, therefore, the categories being beyond our moral codexes. The violation of the mentioned categories could bring to suffering and diseases, whereas their reestablishing brings to healing. " Read More @ OrderofLove.com

 

The Healing Herd

Horses have an amazing power to heal and to teach.

They offer unconditional relationships, experience a wide range of feelings,
and provide immediate, honest, observable feedback
in response to our interactions with them.

What is it that we do not know about ourselves?

What happens if we invite the shadow into our constellation space, the parts of ourselves that are more hungry than we are comfortable with, angrier than we can bear, more judgmental, blaming, contemptuous, helpless or frozen than we wish to be?

 

How can we turn toward this unknown part with gentleness and acceptance. This is not comfortable work, but it brings great self-compassion in its wake

What to Expect With

Constellations with Horses

What is Constellations with Horses?​

Gloria integrates cutting edge neuroscience and empathy with Family Constellations and her Healing Herd of seven horses (and three cats).

This work opens the door to understanding how much information is coming in through our bodies.  As comprehension deepens, we experience how we can effectively partner with horses and nature for conscious movement in our world. 

Step into the Knowing Field

When we step into the knowing field we are stepping into the seeker’s right hemisphere, (reflected by the Equine) with its connection to the body, emotions, and its orientation in our relational world. 

The Knowing Field  is the Arena or Picadero

The picadero, round pen, or arena of the Healing Herd is the designated area of the knowing field. This field of energy receives access to information specific from the seeker’s held intention.  

​Each Constellation Begins Outside of the Arena

 

​Each Constellation begins outside of the picadero, round pen, or arena with the client, known as the Seeker, being interviewed in a body-centered approach by Gloria. As the Seeker states their intention to Gloria, she observes the knowing field of the constellation where the horses reflect the Seeker’s right hemisphere. When the seeker steps into the knowing field, they both witness and participate in their unfolding Constellation being guided to access the body’s wisdom through physical sensations, arising emotions, the beauty of the needs alive in the moment, and intuition. The horses and nature tune-in to information gathering in the knowing field, communicating though each movement, sound, and felt sense as it unfolds.

 

Gloria supports the Seeker to notice and observe everything that happens in the field,

acknowledging the meanings each moment has in the Seekers felt-sense experience. Constellations with Horses are held in communion with nature, inviting all of life to participate, including the elements. At any moment, a dove, butterfly, red-winged hawk,  horse-fly, rain, wind, or the heat of the sun may make its presence known in the Constellation. The representation of each moment becomes known as the Constellation unfolds.

 

 Constellations with Horses give us a way to harvest the body’s wisdom.

Through this work we strengthen our social engagement system and we can begin to unwind and unravel the frozen strands of trauma from our essential self, so that we can flourish, live, and contribute our gifts with ease.​​ When we honor and hold reverence for all that occurs, and all the energies that participate in the constellation, we receive enduring benefits.
