Dr. Jaak Panksepp's half century of research into the emotions of non-human animals is not only changing lives for humans, but it is revolutionizing our understanding of our connection to nature, evolution and non-human animals.
Our services are dedicated to putting this sound science to work for the good of all beings and our earth.
TAKING THE EMOTIONS OF ANIMALS SERIOUSLY THROUGH AFFECTIVE NEUROSCIENCE
MOST RECENT RESEARCH IN THE FIELD OF EELP
- 2015-Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention compared Equine Assisted Intervention (EAI) & Play-based intervention/ 8 weeks, high-risk mother-child dyads. EAI showed specific advantages & majority of mothers preferred EAI
- 2014-WSU EELP study funded by NIH showed decreased Cortisol levels & negative behaviors & increased self-awareness, self management & positive behaviors grades 5-8/ 12 weeks after school.

One Heart Wild Education Sanctuary is a trans-species, psychology-based organization providing equine experiential programs, therapy, sanctuary, and education for the purpose of healing lives through mutual connection between nature, human beings and animals.
We employ the principles that underline how and why human animals and non-human animals are more alike than different, in brain, mind, emotion, and behavior, especially when it comes to social mammals.
The field of human/non-human animal interaction, learning and psychotherapy is growing rapidly as we better understand the science that informs this promising healing approach.
