Equine Facilitated Learning Apprenticeship in The Netherlands

 

The Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) apprenticeship according to the curriculum developed by Linda Kohanov in Holland/Belgium is offered under the name Medicine Horse Way.

“The focus of Medicine Horse Way is to help ourselves be the change that we want to see in the world, and to harvest the wisdom of all that has been experienced”

~ Carol Roush, founder Medicine Horse Way

On this page you find information on apprenticeship courses planned in The Netherlands and Belgium for 2019 and beyond. For information on Medicine Horse Way Instructors and Programs in other European countries, please consult the Medicine Horse Way website.

The Dutch based programs are organised by Josselien Janssens (photo): Medicine Horse Way Master Instructor, Eponaquest Faculty Member, Advanced Eponaquest Instructor, Master Herder Instructor.

In offering these apprenticeships Josselien works together with Medicine Horse Way Advanced and Master Instructors from the Netherlands, UK and Germany.

The Dutch Medicine Horse Way instructor certification program consists of three modules. There are optional further programs offering additional tools and qualifications.

After successfully completing the second module – Medicine Horse Way Level 1 Coach, you receive a professional certificate and can start your equine facilitated coaching practice. A big difference with the way this curriculum is offered elsewhere, is that after graduating from Level 1,  there is no obligation to take the additional modules.  Most students however do value the ability for further study with peers to deepen their skills and add to their EFL coaching toolkits and qualifications.


The Modules:

 


Module 1 – The Nature of Wisdom Programme

In our philosophy, to successfully help others heal and grow as a coach, you need to ‘take your own medicine’ first. It is from our own story of personal growth, overcoming our emotional blocks and limiting beliefs, that we derive the unique strenght and insights to help others.
