The Broader Context
Anything over the level of a '7' is a difficult level to get through. This means that you may have to remove the animal to a quieter more suitable environment so he can hear you.
But then you also have to utilize 'risk assessment' as a high thinking mind (the animal's) can be a very dangerous mind. So that brings us right back to the 'health & safety'.
Remember the confidentiality of clients and story telling...and you can't just share 'confidential' information about what 'happened' during your sessions. So if you want to use the experience to describe the TT and the experience, you MUST ask the permission of the person first.
Think critically in the bigger picture when working in the TT. The larger scope of animal and human relationship.
We are looking for you to do self reflection. Be able to give reasoned judgements on your own sessions. So through your own wisdom, you mark your own work.
So it's not just about them telling us how we are doing. WE must know how we are doing and judge ourselves and see where you need to up your game.
It's important to have a good understanding of the animal welfare act and how you can deliver it to a client (if needed) in a way that doesn't sound like you are judging.
There is a required and recommended reading list.
When you gain the knowledge of these books it will enhance your understanding of the TT.
The reading list Required and recommended
Do some research, so you have a good understanding of Data protection (remember to keep your clients privacy private)
Veterinary Surgeons Act.: Here you must remember always that we never 'diagnose' in the TT. Leave that to the professionals.
Animal Welfare Act, in preparation for course assignment and how this relates to the FIVE FREEDOMS: It would be hard to build relationship with the TT if an animal isn't being given the basics of food and water!
Power of Now
Shares what the present moment is...
This will help you get a good description of what the present moment is or mindfulness...so start from a place the client would understand.
Jonathan Livingstone Seagull:
About a seagull breaking out of the norm. And this (TT) is pioneering work and really 'break out of the norm' as well...so this book is very inspiring to this end.
the Way of the Wizard:
Very powerful book that has you change internally....and this is specially chosen, to help us move past the EGO. This works both ways...either we don't think we are good enough....or we think we are the end all be all...Both are as bad as the other. Moving past the ego is the best way for us to remember as Practitioners that we are there to HELP.... Now if you are NERVOUS as you enter a session, you are caught in that EGO STATE. BUT if you have a TRUE SENSE OF PURPOSE, then, it's just not about YOU anymore! It's all about helping them. Then you will be in the right space to go ahead and do that. And this is the book that James believes will really help you at that level.
Walking the Tiger/Healing Trauma:
A Great book that shows you how we store trauma. How it's relative to our past and how we can be very conditioned. Both humans and animals wear conditioned responses both physically and emotionally.
For ex: If you get TT next to an abused animal, and the animal might freak out a little thinking oh no, this is a person and remembering what happened with a person in the past, whether thinking levels or resonating on that level. When we bring their mind down, especially when it gets to that zero state, a DEEP HEALING RELEASE starts to happen. And when a human brings an animals mind down, their experience is not the same as what's happening compared with what happened.
So, something has to change and that 's why James believes they go back into their past, and they find peace with it. This book really highlights how that works. For animals AND for people...and how the combination of those two really work together....
