October 14-17, 2020 Texas Eagala Networking + Retreat
Date & Time: October 14-17, 2020 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm
Location: 10 Miles North of Jefferson, Texas
If nothing else, 2020 has been a year of first. Why not continue this pattern with our 9th Annual Eagala Networking Retreat? After all, we have been talking about this for years…why not do it now?
I am pleased to announce that this year our retreat will be a four day retreat! Wednesday, October 14-Saturday, October 17, 2020.
So, what are we going to do with this extra day?
I am so glad you asked! When I originally announced our retreat in March 2020, I was fresh from our Eagala 20/20 Conference. This year Eagala offered members opportunity to purchase live streaming of certain presentation from our pre-conference ($30.00) and conference ($100.00). These same members could receive Eagala recertifying CEU’s (16 hours) for viewing these videos (at $10.00 per hour). Is that not cool! Guess what? These same videos have been provided to Eagala Networking Coordinators to share with our Networking Groups!
Soooo, Elizabeth, Romey and I added a day to our retreat to allow us time to incorporate these videos into our agenda. Attendees will receive Eagala re-certifying CEU’s (and professional CEU’s where applicable) for viewing the videos. Because it is being viewed via an Eagala Networking event, there is no need to pay the additional $10.00/hour.
What other presentations can I expect?
For in-depth information you can check out the 2020 Retreat Package via www.bentanchorranch.com/events. Its purpose is to provide attendees everything they need to know about the retreat, what to bring, how to check weather conditions, agenda...I'm sure you get the picture. If after reviewing this you still have a questions please contact me so I can help.

For an additional $50.00 Mental Health Professionals will receive over 20 Professional Development CEU's, depending on participation. The required sign-in sheets and evaluations will be provided.

Our Retreat and COVID-19
In support of our “new-norm” Shepherd’s Pasture is doing their part to ensure our continued health. They have changed the way we dine, continually disinfect and clean in accordance with state guidelines.
We encourage potential attendees to do their part by isolating themselves as much as possible and practicing the "Five" (1 - Hands. Wash them often, 2- Elbow. Cough into it, 3- Face. Don't touch it,
4- Feet. Stay more than 6ft apart, 5- Feel sick? Stay home) prior to our event to ensure we arrive healthy, and consequently, leave the event healthy.
We support and encourage individuals practicing needed precautions for ourselves, families, and communities. I have my own personal “routine” that I plan to continue at our retreat. I encourage you to do the same. (PPE) will not be provided.
In the meantime, please share about our educational and networking event for those interested in, or working in, the fields of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine Assisted Learning. This networking retreat is for counselors, psychologists, social workers, marriage & family therapists, psychiatrists, addiction counselors, horse professionals and enthusiasts, correctional workers, coaches, educational consultants, employee assistance programs, residential program directors and staff, students, educators and anyone interested in enriching and changing lives through equine!
I look forward to seeing y’all in October. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (903.520.5060) or Glenna@bentanchorranch.com . If you call me and I do not answer, please leave a message so I can return your call.
