Allan Hamilton, Zen Mind, Zen Horse: The Science and Spirituality of Working with Horses


Mindful work with horses, says neurosurgeon Allan Hamilton, can enlighten the human handler. The horse has finely honed abilities to lead, communicate, and connect not with words, but with the vital emotional energy described in the Buddhist tradition as chi. When we learn the language of chi, we become more effective as leaders, more attuned to others, and more joyful as human beings. Drawing from spiritual traditions such as Zen, Ayurveda, and Yaqui shamanism, and from the great horse cultures of the Mongolians, Bedouins, and Native Americans, Dr. Hamilton shares ways to develop right-brain awareness and quiet the left-brain dominance of our Western brains.
