Review for Saffyre Sanctuary, Inc., Sylmar, CA, USA
Equalia Actualization Certification program offered by Saffyre Sanctuary!
I am quite new to really knowing horses, but after a "lightning bolt" moment I decided that I wanted/needed to incorporate these beautiful beings into my life and career on a much deeper level. So after researching several certification programs and not really feeling they were a good fit for me, I called on Kate Neligan (Equine Life Coach) to give me some guidance! Little did I know that she had just partnered with Esta Bernstein and Equalia. After meeting with Esta I knew I found the place I belonged. Esta's relationship with horses is the most amazing thing I have ever seen! She knows her stuff and she knows horses! In a very short time I have learned to look at horses as our partners in life, as they have such great gifts to offer and teach us. They guide us to really know ourselves and how they want/need to be treated, as well as, how we should treat our fellow humans.
I have learned so much about their bodies, nutrition, bathing, grooming, how they like to play, be heard and how they are asking for our partnership, and being open to what they have to teach us. I see each and every horse as more beautiful than I ever did before!
Where Esta teaches the horse side, Kate teaches us the human side with her life coaching skills.
As I have just started to do my modules with Kate, she has gotten me more in touch with meditation and breathing and the healing touch and presence of these magnificent creatures. I am looking forward to her guiding me to be the best equine-assisted life coach I can be, which her years of experience and passion for sharing what she knows!
Both Esta and Kate are always sending me helpful references to help me on my way, Not many instructors would be as giving and as invested. I appreciate it so much! Thank you both so much. I know that I have found forever friends and mentors in Kate and Esta and my life is so much richer for choosing to bring them along with me in my journey!
