From Lauren's program page:
“A Hero’s Journey With Horses” is a workshop in self-discovery. Welcome to my world, a world filled with love and respect for the horse and a desire to teach people the tools they need to feel better, communicate better and be more of who they really are and long to be.
The world is filled with doubt, disrespect, fear and dysfunction. Dysfunction breeds discontent and discontent breeds disrespect for self and others. That is why I came up with this program “A Hero’s Journey With Horses.” Years ago I taught a self-esteem workshop for adolescents within the school system in Boulder, Colorado. It was patterned after the age old paradigm of The Wizard of Oz where there is a problem, a journey, an overcoming of strife and ultimately a triumph and a discovery of the qualities of the hero which is in all of us.
Some years later I studied horse behavior and the effects horses can have on humans and I decided to put the two together in one workshop where horses can 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.
This work is for all ages, for families, adolescents, teens and adults. It is beautifully orchestrated with group and individual exercises and interactions between the horses and the humans, all conducted on the ground. The horses are invited to shed light upon the actions of the humans which offers insight to behaviors and attitudes that affect relationships.
Tools are taught in the areas of leadership and communication and experiences are provided addressing fear and trust. The results create intimacy between the horses and participants and between the participants themselves which often causes a shift in the experience that each individual has of themselves and reveals new choices and ways of being.
A fun yet meaningful and often profound experience of oneself in relation to others, this workshop is a must for anyone who is seeking a better understanding of themselves and who has a desire to discover their very own Hero inside.

After her Animal Communication Introduction Workshop, I have realized that there is more to them being just 'animals'...just as there is more to me than just being 'human'. This has impacted me so much so, that it is hard for me to dismiss our animal relations as non-sentient beings. I've always verbally talked to them, but now I am realizing that they have always responded! Thank you Liz for opening up my eyes and mind to the opportunities of deepening my relationships with the Cats, Dogs, Horses and all other Beings. The journey has begun! – Teresa B.
Wonderful workshop Liz! Thank you so much! It was a really moving and heartwarming experience, with lots of learning and insights. I am already enjoying applying what I learned with my own animals! – Emily G
