The Healing Power Of Horses

Wednesday November 6, 2013: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Horses make great partners on our human journeys of healing. Whether it is a physical or emotional condition, there are many ways in which horses can help guide and support the healing process. By their inherent nature, horses behave and react in ways that give us a great deal of information about ourselves.

Kimberly Cardeccia, Owner/Operator of the Hidden Promise Equestrian and Healing Center will discuss how this happens and explore some of the different ways horses can make our lives better.

Kimberly Cardeccia is a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been involved with horses for over 30 years. She has operated her counseling practice since 2001, following 10 years as an elementary physical education teacher. She combines her professional skills with her passion for horses in order to help individuals surpass the mental and emotional blocks that continue to limit their experience of life. Her unique style of compassionate guidance emphasizes communication and safety (both physical and emotional) in her work with people and horses. She combines her training and expertise into holistic methods to help clients heal their mind and body connection

The discussion will be interesting to teens and adults. It is less about horses, and more about how to use horses for therapeutic purposes.
