The Children’s Program has developed into a Mystery School. A lot of children are born different – they have a special gift or intuition that is locked in. Hochoka’s Mystery School helps them uncover their own special gift and unlock their potential. In fact, the purpose of Mystery School is to assist children and teens to unlock their potential. The Mystery School helps children get in touch with their whole self; their physical self, their mental self, their and emotional self. The learning facilitated at Hochoka’s Mystery School is decidedly different than the traditional kind of learning in school systems. The learning here is a tactile experience; the learning is done actively, using the whole body – the emotional body, the physical body, the mental body, and the spiritual body. We work with children who have behavioral issues and are failing in the school system. We also work with home schooled children and/or children who are born with developmental disabilities. The focus is task and goal oriented, aligned with each particular child’s life purpose. Learning is facilitated at Hochoka by “doing;” not by reading a book and taking a test. This form of learning significantly helps to reveal a child’s strength and weaknesses and releases emotional blocks, which facilitates self-understanding, psychological and emotional health. Our modern society has grown to where most our output is of a mental capacity this leads us cut off from the emotional aspect of our being, which after time could result in confusion frustration and anxiety. This inevitably leads to disease, dysfunction or even a breakdown of some kind. The Healing with Horses program teaches children here to use the emotional body as a source of intelligence. Children at Hochoka have to solve problems by themselves, sometimes doing simple things which can reveal an emotional block. Horses help facilitate healing because they have an innate ability to know what a person needs to heal, whether it is an emotional block, a repetitive behavior, or even physical problems.
