Do you wonder what it means to be "healthy as a horse"? Equine-imity teaches you how to create horse-human relationships that will improve your health by reducing stress and bridling emotions that behave like runaway horses.
Based on the classes and private sessions Dr. Kane conducts in the Stanford University Health Improvement Program, Equine-imity uses techniques from qigong, tai chi, yoga, Reiki, and nature-based therapy that have medically proven health benefits.
Can't quiet your mind for sitting meditation? Equine-imity teaches moving meditations that fully engage your mind and body. Simple activities such as meeting, grooming, and leading horses are taught as meditations.
Don't know how to meet a horse? This book provides resources for finding equine programs and private individuals with horses in your area.
Equine-imity is written especially for non-equestrians and non-meditators. Whether you have a horse or have never even touched one before, whether you practice meditation or not, in Equine-imity you will discover:
· Horses as teachers of physical, emotional, and spiritual health
· Appreciation of the human body as beautiful in every size and shape
· Applied principles from exercise physiology, sports medicine, natural horsemanship, and equine-assisted therapy
· Seven easy-to-follow medical qigong exercises
· The Stanford four-phase Equine-imity somatic horsemanship program, proven to reduce stress
· Resources for how to locate horses near your home or workplace
Our bodies are our temples and horses lead us to the altar.
