5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding Silent Communication & Intuition, 4 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tao of Equus: A Woman's Journey of Healing and Transformation Through the Way of the Horse (Paperback)
Living in herds, horses need to avoid making undue noise which could attract predators. The horse has a large limbic brain and is able to communicate silently - understanding whether or not those (horses or humans) in its proximity are congruent or not and responding accordingly. This means that horses have an invaluable ability to 'sense' when someone is 'putting on a front' and so is not authentic with themselves nor others. The horse can also project thoughts / sensations and feelings into others and can act as an amazing mirror to show when we are projecting our distorted version of reality onto them.
The Tao of Equus explores how Linda Kohanov first discovered these experiences for herself and then developed their use in helping people through equine facilitated psychotherapy. And the book covers a whole load of other areas as well - eg mythology; intuition; philosophy; energy work and personal stories. I can't remember how I came across Linda's work - however I've read all her books - and attended 2 of Leigh Shambo's courses in the UK during which I have experienced the connections Linda describes and subsequently developed them. Many people are drawn to horses but don't know why and may well find this book explains that connection. Others may have spent a lifetime with horses but completely missed out on even realising that there's so much more to horses than just riding and using or owning them - and this book might help them start to think differently about their relationship with the horse. And anyone who wants to learn to discover their true authentic self; to leave behind them the layers of confusion that represent our attempts to adapt in a difficult world and to understand how intuition really works will find this book could help them start that journey whether or not they have an interest in horses (although that does help for sure!). The only slight caution that I'd raise is that as an individual develops these skills for themselves - they may find it frustrating how increasingly insensitive and inconsiderate those around them seem to become; horses seem to have far more patience, tolerance and understanding when dealing with people who frankly 'haven't a clue'!
