“The nonviolent approach does not immediately change the heart of the oppressor. It first does something to the hearts and souls of those committed to it. It gives them new self-respect; it calls up resources of strength and courage that they did not know they had. Finally it reaches the opponent and so stirs his conscience that reconciliation becomes a reality.”
~Martin Luther King, Jr
Life Coaching & Team Building:
Life coaching and team building are slightly different from therapy in that they enhance people’s lives so that the can better define and achieve their goals. Unlike therapy, life coaching, is not about alleviating suffering, rather it’s about creating greater satisfaction in life. Likewise, team building is about understanding and optimizing how individuals function in a team, and how to create greater synergy to enhance work satisfaction, creativity and productivity.
Life Coach Services Offered:
Life coaching and team building are powerful tools for helping individuals, families, and teams define their purpose and make meaningful and realistic plans for realizing their goals. At Amani we use a wide range of tools to help people in this capacity. Along with traditional personality assessments, coaching techniques, and office visits, we can use Equine Assisted Learning to inspire and challenge individual clients, families and teams.
Horses are a perfect tool for this work for they invoke a sense of awe and wonder and most people want to connect with them. They are also prey animals and hyper-sensitive to their environment. This sensitivity allows them to respond and often mirror human emotions in an obvious and non-judgmental fashion. Horses don’t pay attention to our words; rather they are deeply in tune with our purpose and intentions. Simply put, horses don’t have an agenda they just tell it like it is. When horses communicate through their actions, people listen and learn. In addition, people behave in the pasture where we work, much like they act in their daily lives. They bring their mind, body and spirit into the session in a way that is not possible when just conversing. With the help of the horses and the outdoor setting, we can get very “real” with clients, without becoming at all threatening. This environment allows for exciting and meaningful work to take place in a short amount of time.
Life Coach Clients:
At Amani we work with people of all ages, from all over the world, and from all walks of life. Our clients consistently report being deeply impacted and even transformed by their experience.
Amani Mediation is partnering with Lincoln Middle School and other educational consultants in an innovative experiential education program called The Open Door Project (ODP) funded by the Bohemian Foundation. ODP combines Equine Assisted Learning and Emotional Intelligence to teach social and emotional skills necessary for success to Lincoln students. The objective of our project is to support at-risk students in becoming productive members of our community. Through work with horses we facilitate the students’ development of emotional intelligence, social skills, and self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is the external manifestation of self-esteem–a fundamental human need. We create opportunities for the kids to succeed so they not only change the way they see themselves, but also how the community sees them. We have witnessed tremendous growth in our student participants over the years.
