How about learning PARTNERSHIP from a Horse?


Alison Armstrong combines her passion for and unique insight into Partnership with the magic and magnificence of specially trained horses. With Cindy Sawatzky, horsewoman and Alison's beloved collaborator in the Heart of Partnership, the stage is set to alter your capacity for Partnership at your core.

Why HORSES? Because they live in a paradigm of Respect rather than Being Liked; they respond only to Clear Communication; and their spirits are the embodiment of partnership. They also have the fastest reactions of any domesticated animal - faster than a cat! This makes them excellent trainers in all endeavors that require integrity and unclouded communication. Your horses will provide the 1000+-pound visual and visceral learning experiences to get the Elements of Partnership in every fiber of your body.



CORE PARTNERSHIP is CO-ED ~ Come with or without a Companion!


Imagine an extraordinary four days with a small group of women and men, where you align your heart's desires and your will with an expanded ability to communicate clearly and powerfully in partnership. This intimate and life-altering course with Alison Armstrong, Cindy Sawatzky, and a team of specially trained horses, is dedicated to PAX graduates with a desire to make and fulfill big commitments to their relationships, families, communities or organizations. The course is limited to 16 participants.

Core Partnership gives you access to profoundly shifting your BEING to match the language and tools you've learned in our curriculum. If you have used the Language of Heroes, the Needs Conversation, Deal-Making, and Boundary Setting - and STILL don't have the results you want - the one-on-one attention and kinesthetic experience with horses will make the difference.



Wondering if Core Partnership is for you? Take this QUIZ to find out:


  • When making a request -- Do you choose from what you think you can get from that person? Instead of asking for what really matters to you?
  • Do you frequently anticipate or imagine what you don't want?
  • Do you assume you'll get a "No" and strategize for a "Yes?"
  • Have you ever been accused of nagging? Of pressuring? Of not giving anyone "room to breathe?"
  • Do you feel the need to micro-manage at work, in your family or in your relationships?
  • Do you think you have to do everything yourself?
  • Do you worry about trust?
  • Do you struggle with letting others be accountable?
  • Are you passionate about Partnership?
  • Are you committed to an extraordinary family, business or community?
  • Are you committed to excellence as a partner, manager or executive?
  • Would you like to be committed to something bigger than you've taken on before?

If you answered YES to even one of these questions, Core Partnership may be for you - But only if you're willing to never have your normal concerns and complaints again. And you're interested in trading the illusion of control for the reality of being provided for in vibrant partnerships everywhere in your life.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN in CORE PARTNERSHIP:

Classroom concepts will be immediately expressed and experienced with the horses waiting for us nearby...

  • Honoring Your SELF and Your SPACE: Partnership is only possible when there is a fully self-expressed person available to be part of something. Too often, men and women lose themselves in pleasing and providing, thereby making partnership impossible. Learn how to not collapse in on your potential partners and to not disappear in relationships.
  • ASK and RELEASE: Learn how to ask for what you need and then trust it will be provided for you. Get ahold of the pressure you consciously and unconsciously exert and release it so others can generate for you, without nagging or micro-managing.
  • Clarity, Consistency, Acknowledgment and Appreciation: Shift your way of being to create consistency between what is in your heart and what you're communicating verbally and non-verbally. Drop down out of your head and into your core. These communications are the clearest, most powerful and get the biggest response from man, woman and horse alike.
  • Intimacy and Boundaries: Instinct may have you believe that you can set boundaries or have intimacy - one or the other. Learn how to have them exist simultaneously. When working with the Rolland Sawatzky trained horses, you will experience that boundaries can cause affection, love and intimacy without causing distance or disempowerment.
  • Become Conscious of your Attention: Our intention follows our attention. But we don't realize that our attention is often on what we don't want, while we're talking about what we do want. Horses are acutely aware of our attention and intentions and respond quickly. Their awareness helps us become conscious of the mixed messages we send and the source of the results we don't want!
  • Grabbing the Reins: Break through the cycle of "grabbing back the reins," one of the most disempowering behaviors in men and women. Learn to allow the people in your life to provide, solve problems, take care of you and keep you safe.
  • AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT WORKING WITH HORSES:


  1. Do I need to like horses to benefit from this course?
    No, you don't need to like them. They will train you with powerful, clear, immediate feedback regardless of how you feel about them.
  2. What if I’m afraid of horses?
    Fear is often a result of Objectification, one of the biggest barriers to Partnership. Fear is fine if you're committed to working through it and are willing to receive support. As you recognize the distinct, amazing BEING on the other end of the rope, awaiting your partnership, you won't ever be the same.
  3. Do I need prior horse experience to take this course?
    No prior experience is necessary. This is a course in partnership, not horsemanship.
  4. Will we ride the horses?
    The coursework with the horses will happen on the ground, face-to-face and side-by-side with your four-legged partner. This provides the best kinesthetic experience and development of your ability to communicate, create trust, release accountability and own space.
