The Tao of Equus considers the mystical nature of horses and the magical connection between them and humans. Equine therapist Linda Kohanov tells of an extraordinary spiritual awakening she experienced with her black mare, Rasa. This incident led her to investigate both the metaphysical and the scientific aspects of the human-horse bond. Her findings especially regarding how the equine mind compares with the human mind, and what horses can teach humanity are surprising. Using neurological research, cultural history, mythology, and firsthand anecdotes from years of teaching and facilitating equine therapy, Kohanov does justice to the profound communion that people women in particular often experience with horses.
