Can horse really teach us to be better human beings?
In this groundbreaking book, you will discover that the answer is a resounding “yes!” Throughout history, horses have guided humans on external journeys. Horse Sense and the Human Heart reveals how horses can take us on a deeper journey – on the path to healing, awareness and spiritual and emotional growth.
Working with severely disturbed youths, therapists Adele and Deborah McCormick discovered the best healers were their herd of Peruvian Paso horses. Through this unconventional medium, they encountered a link to life in its rawest form. By working with horses, the McCormicks’ clients were initiated into the hidden world of animal energy and instinct, and provided with a safe and natural way to learn about their own dualistic natures.
Clients learned to tap into their primal “animal” mind and energies and apply them toward more creative and responsible living. What took days or months to uncover in an office took only minutes when clients were on a horse. You will read case after fascinating case of people discarded by society and the psychiatric community whose lives were turned around by the intuitive guidance and friendship of their equine therapists.
Indeed, horses are good for us all. By reconnecting with our intuitive core and with our natural origins, horses can teach us what nurtures creativity and point us to unity with all life and with God. Even if you have never met a horse face-to-face, you can use the principles found in this book to live a fuller, more meaningful life. You will gain a clear understanding of the unique wisdom called “horse sense” and, by being true to your nature, embody a uniquely human “horse sense” of your own.
