Did you know that increasing scientific, behavioral and anthropological evidence suggests certain animals reached out to our ancestors—befriending, empowering, and gentling people long before we were able to corral and control them?
Did you realize that as humans formed partnerships with animals, our own species became braver, stronger, and more compassionate as a result?
Have you considered what horses, dogs, and other animals have to teach us, even as they’ve also been proven to help us reduce stress, heal from physical illness and traumatic events, and lead longer, more fulfilling lives?
Join bestselling author Linda Kohanov for a moving, at times mind-altering exploration of humanity’s deep connection with the caring side of nature when she presents The Heart of Evolution: Exploring the Hidden History and Untapped Potential of the Human-Animal Bond in California and Arizona in the coming weeks.

“In doing research for my latest books The Power of the Herd and The Five Roles of a Master Herder, I came across some unexpected information that turns conventional theories about animal domestication inside out and upside down,” Linda marvels. “I quickly realized that this counterintuitive perspective on how ancient humans formed mutually beneficial partnerships with other species offers a template for how we can effectively gain the trust and loyalty of people who we may initially perceive as being very different from ourselves.”
In The Five Roles of a Master Herder, Linda was able to distill research on the genesis of the human-animal bond into a remarkable 8-step process for modern humans who want to enhance their relationships with other people in business, community, educational, and family settings, as well as with other cultures.”
