School of Self


School of Self

Discovery Horse is excited to announce its latest Passion Project..

School of Self
Fostering a shift in the way that professionals understand themselves
in order to provide more effective service to others.

School of Self provides professionally facilitated trainings and groups to support individuals and teams who operate in connection-based fields. We offer School of Self 101 and Advanced School of Self trainings.

Connection-based fields include any field where facilitating connected relationships
is a
primary focus: Doctors, Nurses, Mental Health Professionals, Sports and Lifestyle
Clergy, Educators, Executive Directors, Managers etc . .

sos-groupThe process, emotionally safe community building, is based on the idea that community starts with self. This concept/process, coined by Discovery Horse, has been the catalyst to their community-based approach and its success. Emotionally Safe Communities offer a place where trust is built, mistakes are opportunities, compassion is cherished, courage is cultivated, and connection is sacred.

School of Self provides an experiential process designed to deepen connection to self which in turn strengthens relationships with others. Working in tandem with our team, groups will practice new relational and communication strategies which can:

  • Improve communication in personal and professional relationships
  • Decrease compassion fatigue
  • Deepen connection to self and increase capacity to connect to others
  • Increase self care and boost morale
  • Encourage an improved sense of self and community
  • Address the inherent issues of compartmentalization
  • Increase overall job performance and satisfaction

While SOS offers public trainings and groups, we also recognize that agencies and organizations have unique needs and cultural considerations. We are happy to offer:

  • Customized groups/trainings offered on-site at Discovery Horse, with or without horses
  • Customized groups/trainings offered at your place of business, without horses
  • Symposium style experiential presentations to large groups
  • Group/training formats that meet the unique needs of your group/team

A word about horses:
When weather permits these groups will be conducted in the arena with equine support. BUT: These groups are about you. Not about horses. If you don’t care for them or don’t know them . . please don’t worry. Your level of comfort/like/dislike of horses will have very little bearing on the efficacy of this group.



School of Self Partnership
School of Self partners with the College of St. Scholastica to offer CEU’s through their social work department. CEU’s are available for our MN based retreats/trainings only.




If you or your group are interested in a School of Self  2-Day Training or in a customized training,
please let us know by completing the form below. We will contact you. Thank you!
