This Equine Herbal workshop (Applied Zoopharmacognosy) may be attended either online (through Zoom) or onsite at our Clinic in Sligo, Ireland. This life changing course will be your first solid step on the journey to acquiring a life-long skillset that will empower you to restore and maintain your horse’s health using herbs and essential oils.
You will learn how to work with such physical issues as sprains, wounds, laminitis, hormonal imbalances as well as behavioural issues such as fear, anxiety and aggression. This course is hands-on with multiple practical sessions where participants can learn how to offer for issues that they may encounter with their horse.
Why learn with us?
See more details below plus what our students have to say about their experiences!
Are you or your animal unable to travel to our clinic in Sligo? Consider an online Applied Zoopharmacognosy session through zoom where Carly will guide you through the offering process.
Or are you new to Zoopharmacognosy and unsure of, or need more support on how to work with the 'offering and selecting' process?
Alternatively are you already familiar with the process but need further support on a specific issue with your animal?
Book an online one-to-one session where Carly will guide you (using Zoom platform or your preferred alternative) throughout the session or consider a half hour mentoring session to get you started! See below for varying packages available. Click here to email if you wish to discuss this option further/make an appointment.
Achieving optimum results
Some clients may already have herbs and oils purchased from other sources that they may wish to use for a session. Regrettably we are unable to work with these unless they come from a recognised verifed Zoopharmacognosy specialist supplier. This is due to the fact that many products on the market commonly contain additives, fillers, preservatives and pesticide residue. When offering to your animal during a session it is imperative that the products used such as the ones we supply are of the highest standard and correct chemotype to ensure efficacy and more importantly safety. Thank you for your understanding.
This introductory workshop in Sligo, offers participants an opportunity to make an initial connection with their Spirit Helpers through a way called 'Journeying' with a view to helping them connect with animals they live with or who are in their care.
On Saturday you will have the opportunity to Journey to the Drum to meet with your Spirit Helpers in order to form the initial connection.
On Sunday you will have the opportunity to journey to an animal you are close to to ask if and how, if at all, you can help. For more info see below under 'Shamanic Healing & Practice'.
