Based on Dr. Hamilton's award-winning, best-selling book Zen Mind, Zen Horse—The Science and Spirituality of Working with Horses, this innovative program is the only program in the world to offer the insights and training of a neurosurgeon and psychologist with extensive experience and training in equine assisted therapy and learning. The Hamilton's work has become the subject of a new feature-length award-winning documentary film called Playing With Magic, by Emmy-award winning director Wayne Ewing.
The clinic runs from 12:00 pm Noon - 4:00 pm on Friday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm on Saturday, and 8:00 am - 12:00 pm Noon on Sunday. Lunch will be served on Saturday as well as snacks and beverages all three days. Meals to meet vegetarian or other dietary restrictions or preferences are always available.
A certificate of completion suitable for framing will be provided to all participants who successfully complete the course. In addition, a certificate for 16 credit hours of Continuing Education through the National Board of Certified Counselors is available for those individuals who wish to provide proof of successful completion for education or training purposes.
