Awaken One Benefit All. Every member of the family will benefit!

Equine and Animal Assisted Learning
The Green School at Sagaponack Farm is excited to offer Karin Yapalater’s unique and proprietary SOCS™/PTA© Equine and Animal Assisted Learning programs for the third year.
What to expect in a SOCS™/PTA© COUNSELING & LEARNING SESSION:
SOCS™/PTA© is a mobile school that utilizes the Yapalater’s conscious based PTA© curriculum and travels wherever it is needed. Individuals work closely with Dr. Greg and/or Karin Yapalater, Founders of SOCS™ THE SCHOOL OF CONTEMPLATIVE STUDIES. The cause of emotional, physical and spiritual imbalances are explored, and immediate tools and strategies are provided that get each and every member of the family feeling balanced and at their best.
Specially designed activities – with or without horses and animals – allow participants to deepen awareness of personal issues, core feelings and areas of bodily tension that inhibit their ability to reach their true potential. The Yapalaters along with carefully selected horses and farm animals teach participants how to make powerful choices based on awareness instead of harmful or habitual patterns.
Your healing & learning journey:
Dr. Greg & Karin Yapalater work with you to create emotional, physical and spiritual healing.
The farms and schools where The Yapalaters offer and build their proprietary SOCS™/PTA© Equine and Animal coaching and whispering programs are a kind of a sanctuary with beautiful surroundings that contribute deeply to the experience.
