Could it be possible that your horse - and you -  could be more comfortable, move more easily, and be more fully present and at peace? 
Join us to gain an appreciation of how things might indeed be better - "one TTouch at a time" and, to quote Moshe Feldenkrais, by making "the impossible, possible; the possible, easy; and the easy, elegant."



Edie Jane Eaton will host an amazing workshop at Mountain Horse Farm. Your days will be spent moving between learning TTouch® and Feldenkrais® techniques, experiencing their benefits for yourself, and carrying what you've learned to the horses. Not to mention indulging yourself in the comfort, and with the good food, that the farm offers!

We will begin on Tuesday evening with a short introduction to TTouch and Feldenkrais. We'll enjoy some experience of both, which should help us all sleep well - while processing what we have learned so far - and prepare us for the full and fun days ahead. 


And what are TTouch and Feldenkrais? In two nutshells, and with links to learn more...

  • Touch (TTEAM for horses) was developed by internationally-recognized animal expert Linda Tellington-Jones. Tellington TTouch is a gentle, specialized approach to improving the care and training of animals, as well as improving the physical and emotional well-being of humans. (TTouch.com).
  • Developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, the Feldenkrais Method has helped millions of people worldwide. It is a powerful and revolutionary approach to improving your life that uses gentle, mindful movement to bring new awareness and possibility into every aspect of your life. (Feldenkrais.com)

This three-day workshop counts toward certification in the TTEAM Practitioner Training Program. Two-3 day clinics are permitted to replace one of the required 6-day trainings of the certification program.
CEU's may be available for NCBTMB members (contact NCBTMB to verify and apply).

If you want more information about what to expect, or if you have any issues you are particularly interested in focusing on, please contact Edie Jane at [email protected]  

​​ Join us for this wonderful, all-inclusive workshop, including, of course, the workshop itself but also all meals, snacks & drinks and accommodations. Edie Jane will stay at Mountain Horse Farm, just like you, creating this wonderful opportunity to get to know her better and spend quality time during meals and evening bonfires.

The workshop includes 4 overnight stays. The delicious meals start with dinner on the first evening and end with breakfast on the last morning.

​​​You will work with our herd of horses. It is not an option to bring your own. The workshop does not involve riding horses.

During the workshop no other guests but Edie jane and the participants will stay at Mountain Horse Farm. For sleeping, you have your choice of elegant rooms with fireplaces and outdoor hot tubs, to glamping in tipis (yes, tipis!) – your choice. The maximum number of participants is kept low at 10 and we don't accept auditors. You will be required to sign waivers.​​ Make sure you wear shoes with closed toes (no flipflops, slippers or sandals) and it's always a good idea to dress in layers. ​

Mountain Horse Farm is located in the beautiful Finger Lakes region, famous for its wineries and breweries, gorgeous lakes and waterfalls. You may want to consider adding a few days to your trip to explore the area. 


About Edie Jane Eaton:
profile picture Edie Jane

There's an old saying that goes, "Take care of the pence and the pounds will take care of themselves." That's what "listening to whispers" is all about: paying attention to the small things in order to make changes in the big things. Who doesn't dream of making changes in their life - whether in performance, comfort, tension, stress or behavior?

The journey that led me to practice both TTouch and Feldenkrais has been circular. I had become fascinated with the Feldenkrais Method in the early 1980s, when I saw how it helped my elderly mother when she was dealing with the pain of a deteriorating hip. Feldenkrais lessons allowed her to move more easily. Later, when she had a stroke, the Feldenkrais work helped her not only to move better, but also to think and express herself more clearly. It was astounding!

​​​Knowing that I worked with horses, my Feldenkrais mentor suggested I look into the work of Linda Tellington-Jones, a Feldenkrais practitioner and renowned equestrian who had integrated aspects of the Feldenkrais Method into her work with animals. The system she developed is known as Tellington TTouch Training. Once I saw Linda work, I was utterly hooked.​​

That was over 30 years ago. I spent as much time as I possibly could working with Linda and her sister Robyn Hood, continuing to be delighted and amazed by the work while practicing and teaching it. In 1996, I completed the four-year practitioner training in the Feldenkrais Method. My experience with each method has enhanced my understanding of the other. The circle continues . . .


As a practitioner of both TTouch and Feldenkrais I am available for private lessons or consultations. I teach Feldenkrais workshops with humans, and TTouch workshops with horses (known as TTEAM work), companion animals, and humans (TTouch for You) at home and as far afield as Africa and Australia. I have presented sessions at the Pain Clinic of the Ottawa General Hospital, at several schools of veterinary medicine and at veterinary conferences. I have taught at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, New York, at the New York Open Center in New York City, and at Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah. I am also an instructor of Tellington Method practitioners around the world.


I am grateful to all the animals, people and possibilities that have contributed to shaping my life, and I am confident that there are still more of each around the corner. Perhaps you will be among them!
