What you'll do
Photography & Being with Horses: This session opens with an invitation to ground by exchanging energy with nature near the horse paddock, where one will engage in a centering gratitude meditation & intention setting for the practice. I will introduce resident horses to participants while reviewing ground rules for interacting with horses. Participants in this course will use photography to connect with nature through its stillness. One will explore the depth of connecting while experiencing oneness with our horses. One will become aware of aspects of being, both human and equine, while connecting, bonding and reflecting on the present experience as we incorporate mindful awareness and energy work. The group will move to find new perspectives and angles from which to photograph and be photographed. Encouraging and supportive comments will guide participants through suggestions and approaches to better connect with the animals. Participants will conclude this experience with a meditative gratitude exercise that will bond the exploring with appreciation for photography in nature.

My name is Elisa, I am a visual/performance artist, educator and founder of At The Center, a 501c3 educational nonprofit organization. I create unique centering programs that cultivate balance in people and animals. I use the support of nature & art to enhance our ability to experience our greatness. I have made it my intention to blend my expertise of arts, education, stewardship, yoga, wellness and animal rehabilitation into special experiences set in a scenic nature playground. I design centering & heart activation programs that serve as rich opportunities to connect.
