button-line10We have designed the Practicum Review Gathering to be a nourishing place to come together to share, play, laugh, learn (and complete your certification review if you wish.)  These practicum events are typically scheduled once or twice per year and are designed to support your skills development, to offer you valuable detailed feedback on your Equus Coaching, and to create a place for the herd to come together and spend quality time in community with one another.

This November, we have made the event two days only and will be focusing on skills development, detailed feedback, and certification review. A joyful connection is also guaranteed!

  • To practice your Equus Coaching skills with volunteer clients,
  • To receive feedback on both from Master Facilitators,
  • To become certified if you have completed the Equus Coach Training requirement.
