Life Lessons from the Horse

A One Day Workshop

With Dori Middleman and Mark Putnam and Mindy Tatz Chernoff

Come join us at a this one day workshop. The morning session with Mindy and horses will not involve riding horses, rather you will learn much by noticing their responses towards you. You'll discover possible areas of fear, tension, and anxiety, while allowing the horses to be your gentle guide,
The day will offer:
     * Allowing horses to help you come back to yourself; slow down, notice, feel and heal.
     * The chance to spend time on a working horse farm, exploring and renewing your mind, body and heart
     * Surrounded by animals, learning from the intuitive wisdom of horses, you can rest and renew, all the while in the healing environment.


DORI MIDDLEMAN, MD, co-leads workshops and training at the Center and is Founder and Director of the Center for a Healthy world, a volunteer-driven psychotherapy and training cooperative. Dori is a board- certified psychiatrist in private practice seeing children, adults and families.

MARK PUTNAM, MD, is Medical Director for the Department of Psychiatry at St. Joseph Medical Center, and for the Berkshire Pavilion Haven Behavioral Hospital of Eastern PA in Reading, PA. Mark is a board- certified child and adult psychiatrist in private practice seeing children, adolescents, and adults in his practice, Berkshire Psychiatric Associates and Behavioral Health Services.

MINDY CHERNOFF, MA, provides a novel and innovative approach to healing using horses as a context for promoting self-esteem and a sense of competence. Within a safe environment, which she has called “The Resonant Horse,” together with the horse, she explores areas of resistance, fear, discomfort, love and acceptance. Mindy feels every life lesson can be learned in the barn. Her primary goal is to build upon each individual’s positive traits, encouraging a sense of calm, contentment, and freedom to let go.
