Descriptions du produit

Can horses really teach us to be better human beings? In this groundbreaking work, you will discover that the answer is a resounding "Yes." While working with severely disturbed youths, therapists Adele and Deborah McCormick discovered the best healers were their herd of Peruvian Paso horses. Through their work with horses, the McCormicks' patients were initiated into the hidden world of animal energy and instinct, and found a safe and natural way to learn about their own dualistic natures. Patients 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 setting took onyl minutes when patients 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. What People are saying... "This book got me. It is about personal growth and the cultivation of wisdom, and is one of the wisest contributions I have come across in years...Its implications for healing are utterly profound. "Horse Sense and the Human Heart"is a breakthrough work." --Larry Dossey, M.D. author "Prayer is Good Medicine" and " Healing Words" ""Horse Sense and the Human Heart" is an eye-opening and heartwarming adventure. In sharing their pioneering therapeutic discoveries, Adele and Deborag McCormick take us on a shamantic interspecies odyssey. They reveal a secret world governed by wise equine masters, availalbe to help heal our psyches, and guide the human spirit on its journey toward wholeness." --David Jay Brown, author, "Brainchild" and "Mavericks of the Mind"

HASH(0x9c1cea38) étoiles sur 5 One of the most rewarding books I've ever read! 18 juin 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
A horse is a mirror...he looks right into our hearts and reflects the image back in his own behavior. Once a person understands this - whether or not s/he is a lover of horses - great insight can be gathered from being around these animals. No one explains and illustrates this as well as the McCormicks do in this book! The philosophy and knowledge they offer for our perusal is phenomenal. Read it! You won't see the world the same way...or yourself.

HASH(0x9c208f18) étoiles sur 5 Psycho-babble 12 janvier 2003
Par Erica - Publié sur Amazon.com
My primary complaint about this book is that the authors are not familiar with the idea of "Show, Don't Tell". The book hops blithely from topic to "inspirational" topic, tossing in pseudo case studies at random. These case studies, or short stories about particular client/horse experiences, rarely last more than a page and would be just as easily summed up in a single sentence like "Joanne recognized her control issues after realizing that horses can't be controlled like humans can". In several cases, the stories would end just as I started to be curious enough to read more. In many other cases, the stories were so short or bland that I didn't care about them at all. The basic thrust of most of them, regardless of the chapter title (like "Our Connection with Animals", "Riding Horses to Health", and "The Genesis of Feelings") was that "the magic of horses fixes stuff". While people like "Joanne" are described as having these sudden revelations about their lives, there is nothing to follow up whether they took that lesson back and truly made a change in their life. The troubled youth who tried to straighten up from his jail cell so he could someday acheive the dream of owning a horse might just as well have been inspired by the dream of owning his own tattoo parlor. Don't TELL how much we can learn from the special and magical horses, SHOW me.
Every horse in the authors' stable is an anthropomorphic Lassie. Their horses know just what lessons their clients need to learn, are sweet and loving to anyone who approaches with an pure and open heart, but collectively act crazy a la Black Beauty if someone is on drugs or just plain untrustworthy. One stallion trumpets and paws at the ground because he "knows" that there is a foal trapped under a fence several miles away. A horse tumbling off a cliff has terror in her eyes, not for herself, but for her rider. A mare's negative reaction to a student's tension and anger is because she "knew" that the student was ready for the lesson of being forced to take resposibility. Furthermore, the authors' intense focus on the traits of their beloved Peruvian Iberian breed (a fine breed, to be sure) ends up implying that there is something special and magical about the breed itself, rather than horsekind in general. I am an avid horse lover, and at no time did I feel that any equine in this book was a real living, breathing beast.
Metaphysical abilities are attributed where none are necessary. A student realizes that the more she concentrates on staying away from flowerpots in the corner of the arena, the closer she and her mount get to them. The fact is, all beginning riders learn the lesson "look where you want to go". There are physical reasons for this that have more reasonable explanations than "vibrations" or "path of energy". I can't argue that any of this is false, because it isn't. However, the psychospiritual and metaphysical aspects of horsemanship as presented here are too syrupy for my own sensibilities.
There is little that is presented in this book that I would challenge or disagree with, but the presentation was too nonsensical to have been inspiring to me, and in fact, I had a very difficult time trying to discover what the true message of the book is. If I'd never had experiences of my own with horses and were handed this book to convince me to back a new venture using horses in psychological therapy, I doubt I'd write a single check. Although I have the strong feeling that the authors are experienced horsewomen and competant psychiatrists, there was nothing in this book to truly convince me of this. The only reason I gave this book 2 rather than 1 star(s) is because it may have interest for psychotherapists with little exposure to horses.

Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Horses can be many things to different people. If you let them, they can be therapist, guides and perhaps better, friends. If you look for something more in riding, this book is illuminating. You will never ride again as before.

HASH(0x9c208f48) étoiles sur 5 Complicated and uninspiring 24 septembre 2002
Par A. Barstow - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am with the person from Monte Sereno, CA - I just couldn't get past the first few chapters - waiting for the book to "get to the point." I prefer a simple, straight forward anecdotal style. If you want to get right into a horse's head and heart, I strongly suggest reading anything (and everything) by Mark Rashid, Chris Irwin, or Henry Blake.

HASH(0x9c31b12c) étoiles sur 5 The therapeutic Peruvian Paso Horse! 29 août 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
First, let me say that I have owned Peruvian Paso Horses for nearly 25 years and think they are, by far, the best friend and ride of any other breed that I've owned . . . . and I am also a counselor who works with adjudicated juveniles so this book seemed perfect, melding two of my main life interests. I found the book to be an easy, yet interesting read with excellent case histories and descriptive passages. Having used horses and horsemanship as therapy for troubled youths myself, I think that this book could point the way for many therapists in this area. Any horse is a great help from a therapeutic viewpoint, but the Peruvian Paso Horse excells in this area - they are incredibly intuitive and responsive to the needs of their owners/riders! Read this book!!
