Thank you for creating a welcoming and growth-oriented atmosphere. I loved how experiential the weekend was. I loved being on the farm and all the practical exercises and discussions! Very different from sitting in a room listening to a presentation.

Lindsay Rho, LCMHCA

Participate experientially with a wonderful & caring group who are ready to share with you.

Through an inspiring diversity of topics, we gather for three days, both outdoors and indoors, allowing everyone the space to express, or not. Make it your experience.

Learning without ‘the PowerPoint’.


I enjoy the framework around stories!! I love this community. There is joy surrounding them in their work. The values are in alignment with how I feel and think. So basically, it feels like family. You all are amazing and wonderfully made! Love to the founders! Keep up the great work.

I’ve attended lots of events and this was different. It was more casual and there was a lot of laughter. It was clear that everyone there was there to learn something new and/or expand their understanding of how to improve their programs. I learned a lot and had a great time.

The ARCH Gatherings are open to members and nonmembers!

If you are a nonmember and are considering joining ARCH, you get access to all the self-guided online courses, including the ARCH Foundation Course: The SEEN Keystones (which provides a helpful foundation for the gathering discussions), and annual and organizational members receive a 20% discount on the gathering registration. 

The gatherings are intended to be a relaxing and comfortable time to learn and connect with one another. There are no expectations or requirements. Enjoy conversing with others, take a break, participate in learning experiences, and do whatever draws your interest! This is your time to enjoy. 

Learning experiences are through discussion and experiential practicing. There are no powerpoints at this event! 

Lunches and a selection of drinks and snacks are included in the gathering. Feel free to bring any other food, drinks, or equipment that will help you be comfortable. 

Be sure to check out the logistics button in the Event registration link to find travel and lodging suggestions! Travel and lodging is not included in the registration fee. 

While the ARCH Gatherings take place in environments with horses, there are a diversity of topics presented which may or may not include the horses. ARCH is a framework of facilitation that can be applied in many environments and contexts.

The Gathering is an incredible opportunity to network with other professionals and garner ideas and tools to increase your business success. And it is fun! 

In ARCH, we are all learners and all teachers. The Gathering is a place to apply and practice the ARCH framework’s SEEN & HERD keystones and values. We would love for you to share your experience, specialization, or interest in any topic which includes how you have applied the SEEN keystones in that area. 

If you’d like to submit your interest to share at the Gathering, please fill out this form


With other rigid and limited approaches, I never felt like all of me could show up in an authentic way. There is more flexibility with SEEN™ through Story.

In Arenas for Change, we are all teachers and learners.

Hope to see you there!


The location was great, the learning was great, the people were awesome and the food was so good! It was laid back which allowed for creativity to flow. Being an Equine Specialist with ARCH allows me to fulfill my dream. THANK YOU!! I’m so excited to be a part of ARCH.
