zen-mind-zen.jpeg Zen Mind Zen Horse
Zen Mind, Zen Horse, By Allan J Hamilton. Jayne says: "I absolutely love this book, it provides a window into the horse's heart, mind and soul ... that all horsepeople should read it." When we learn the language of chi, we become more effective as leaders, more attuned to others, and more joyful as human beings. Zen Mind, Zen Horse begins by examining how the equine and human brains function, often related to their respective roles as prey and predator. Going on to draw insights and wisdom from spiritual traditions such as Zen Buddhism, Ayurvedic healing, and Yaqui shamanism and from the great horse cultures of the Mongolians, Bedouins, and Native Americans, Dr. Hamilton shows the importance of developing right-brain awareness and quieting the left-brain dominance of our Western brains. Seamlessly integrating spiritual principles and practical applications, Dr. Hamilton shows how to apply the chi-based approach to every aspect of horse-human communication, including: The act of grooming as a spiritual practice Techniques of alpha-horse leadership that make others gladly follow Gaze, stance, and gesture as training tools The irresistible power of infinite patience. Ultimately, the author shows the depth of insight humans gain into themselves, as well as horses, after working with these amazing animals.
