The Horse Leads the Way: Honoring the True Role of the Horse in Equine Facilitated Practice  By Angela Dunning

“The Horse Leads the Way proposes that honoring the central and true role of the horses is the key to this method being effective, and to ensuring the horses’ well-being is maintained throughout. In the approach put forward in this book, the horses are regarded as sentient beings in their own right and equal partners who employ choices and offer suggestions for how to lead the sessions, rather than being a ‘tool’ for people to use and learn from. Throughout the book vital key abilities that horses can primarily help people reawaken and develop are emphasized. These include: emotional intelligence, intuition, energetic awareness, healthy relationships, mindfulness, presence, and above all, a deep connection to one’s own body; that much maligned part of human life in our mind-orientated world. The book is aimed at practitioners, trainees, clients, horse lovers, equine-psychotherapy, therapy, and learning professionals, as well as therapists, educators and coaches. It is also for anyone interested in understanding the horse-human relationship more deeply and in learning from horses.”

The Theater of War: What Ancient Tragedies Can Teach Us Today

By Bryan Doerries

“Extraordinary. . . . Riveting. . . . [Doerries] discussed Ajax with many troubled vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, and may have saved some of their lives. His book interweaves tales from this journey with episodes from Doerries’s own life and moving discussions of the plays he cherishes—his ‘blueprints for felt experience,’ his conduits for connection and compassion… it is through that intensity of focus, Doerries convinces us, that we can find permission to feel our own pain. To see his productions today, or to see Greek tragedy through his eyes, is to become measurably healthier and more human.” —James Romm, The Daily Beast

ENDORSEMENTS for Linda Kohanov’s NEW BOOK: The Five Roles of a Master Herder

“A seminal masterpiece, Linda Kohanov’s The Five Roles of a Master Herder is a treasure of enlightened insights on how the nature of horse sense can help us find our balance between the lion and the lamb. Far beyond mere feel-good metaphors and self-help clichés, Kohanov clearly defines how nonpredatory power can lead to an evolved level of emotional heroism and the genuinely empathetic emotional intelligence needed to heal a world suffering a crisis of predatory leaders. A must-read for anyone looking to light the way forward in a darkening, increasingly out-of-control world.”
— Chris Irwin, author of Horses Don’t Lie and Dancing with Your Dark Horse

“An innovative and practical nature-based approach to leadership — and life. This book is not just for corporate executives. Parents, teachers, community organizers, film directors, and especially politicians would all benefit from learning these skills.”
— William Shatner, actor, director, and author of Leonard and Up Till Now

“As a trauma specialist, I help people recover from abuse and criminal acts. Over the years, I’ve learned that empowered families are crucial to protecting their loved ones to begin with, for helping survivors of extreme experiences heal, and for leading the kind of cultural change that prevents violence. The Five Roles of a Master Herder provides a template for all adults to reclaim their power and use it wisely, at work and, perhaps more importantly, at home.“
— Rebecca Bailey, PhD, psychologist and author of Safe Kids, Smart Parents

“In The Five Roles of a Master Herder, Linda Kohanov presents an intriguing model for human organizations adapted from those found among animals. This beautifully written book is an important addition to the literature on self-actualization, leadership, and natural horsemanship.”
— Rick Lamb, PhD, author of Human to Horseman and coauthor of The Revolution in Horsemanship

“When Rick Lamb and I coauthored our 2005 book, The Revolution in Horsemanship, I didn’t fully appreciate our subtitle (And What It Means to Mankind), especially as it pertains to the corporate business world. This book, however, made me aware of how an understanding of interspecies animal behavior can powerfully affect our lives today.”
— Robert Miller, DVM, veterinarian, teacher, and coauthor of The Revolution in Horsemanship
