STEP IN - a men's group
Eight 2 hour sessions - April through August 2020
Do you desire to commune with other men and connect from a deeper place?
Join Eric Luczak, Linda Bruce and the horses at Soulful Prairies for this amazing opportunity and experience. Often, we are tied down with going through the motions and getting through our daily needs. Our true potential at living fully and authentically cannot be found if we are stuck in the patterns of business and survival
Spending time in the powerful presence of horses allows us to see things in a different light. Awareness is the key to moving forward, and the combination of men and horses can do just that!
Linda brings her social work, counseling and equine Gestalt gifts into everything she does. Horses being a key element in her practice. Horses are prey animals and to increase their survival, are genetically predisposed to a heightened sensitivity to the environment. Their innate ability to sense energy gives them the beautiful gift of helping reveal our personal strengths and struggles. Linda has always felt strongly that men tend to hang back in the realm of personal work due to the roles and pressures society places on them. She feels incredibly honored to be a small part of changing that model.
Eric combines his personal experiences with a life coaching certification. His passion for working with men has developed largely by experiencing an absence of opportunities for men to connect in meaningful and supportive ways. Eric feels strongly that men and women can live a fuller life by diving in, being vulnerable and opening up to new experiences.
We will start the first introduction session on the phone to discuss what to expect and give an overview of what's to come. The majority of the groups will take place in the arena and often times include at least one horse. We will also take advantage of the beautiful grounds and paths on some evenings.
Soulful Prairies prides itself in being a place where individuals can be vulnerable in an incredibly safe environment.
Take a deep breath and sit with men without judgment.
You will gain personal insight, create connections with
other individuals and find new ways of being yourself
and showing up in the world.
I am a single father to four children. I have experienced a pull to a spiritual path since I was in high school, beginning with reading about different religions and spiritual practices. I have traveled through Europe, visited Asia and Africa and have met Spiritual figures along the way, attending their lectures and retreats.
One of the most life altering events I have experienced was my divorce ten years ago. It strengthened my devotion to growth and provided an opportunity to dive deeper into my healing and examine the deep emotional hurt I had experienced. Through counseling, my path lead me to become a Certified Life Coach. This past year I was certified as a Feel Good Life Practitioner and now help facilitate group meetings virtually and in person.
My passion for working with men has developed largely by experiencing an absence of opportunities for men to connect in meaningful and supportive ways.
Linda strongly values the seeking of truth and answers to create a full life for oneself. This never-ending process has brought her to a place of combining her social work, counseling, Equine Gestalt Coaching, life and horse experience together. Her passion is bringing humans and horses together to create an environment of discovery while finding the healing powers that exist within each of us. Linda owns and runs Soulful Prairies, located an hour north of Chicago.
