“I had the opportunity to attend a one-day bereavement group in August hosted by East End Hospice, Marisa, and the wonderful team of light workers. Spirit's Promise is truly a magical place where I experienced healing, compassion, and love for the animals and each other. Thank you!”

“This rescue farm is a beautiful home to many animals who have had traumatic events in their lives. The staff was professional and kind, and we had the pleasure of a tour from Cindy who is clearly empathic to the needs of these majestic animals and their positive impact as therapy animals to children and adults in need of this unique form of emotional support.”

Just as horses carry people on their backs, our workshops offer a supportive environment for those struggling with a variety of needs and concerns. Acting as a mirror, horses provide immediate feedback to human emotions and behaviors.  Our “Promise of A New Empowerment Program” utilizes horses as co-facilitators on the ground.  Spirit’s Promise offers two forms of Equine Assisted Empowerment (EAE) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL).

These programs are designed to create significant learning moments that are applicable and transferable to your professional and personal life. Program participants can see positive improvements with many issues, such as, boundary awareness, behaviors and attitude, problem-solving, trust and respect, and verbal and non-verbal communications.

Programs are tailored for individuals, families and groups, addressing behavioral and social issues including:

  • Grief and Loss
  • Behavioral Issues
  • PTSD
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Domestic Violence
  • Substance Abuse
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship Issues
  • Communication Problems
  • Academic/School Related Issues
  • Life Transitions
  • Self-esteem and confidence
  • Couples/family
  • Corporate team building

Sessions are customized to meet the specific goals and needs of the group or individual.  For more information about our therapy programs, please contact marisa@spiritspromiserescue.org
