In this moving, at times paradigm-altering seminar, bestselling author Linda Kohanov shares some of her latest, and in many cases, surprising insights on the power of the human-animal bond. Through evocative images and moving case studies from around the world, she combines compelling historical, archeological, biochemical, and behavioral research to illuminate a process of mutual transformation that challenges all our previous notions of how and why our ancestors formed close partnerships with animals.

As she reveals in her latest book The Five Roles of a Master Herder, growing evidence on the development of the human-animal bond “suggests that the tendency to seek connection, and to offer as well as request mutual aid across species lines, is a part of nature, that ‘life’ does in fact ‘favor and protect life.’ From this perspective, the human-animal bond is not a by-product of civilization or a contrived innovation; it is the heart of evolution in action.” The two-day experiential workshop builds upon the ground-breaking research presented in the Saturday seminar, putting theory into action that will change your relationships with animals, people, and nature itself.

Ground-breaking! Linda peers into windows of the past to unravel the enigma of how we first came to live alongside wild animals (who were later domesticated). I found myself on the edge of my seat throughout, celebrating confirmation of my own thoughts and enlightened by Linda’s new and exciting theories.

Once again Linda has combined her meticulous research methodology and keen insight to bring us a new lens through which we can see, understand and experience our relationships with animals, both domesticated and wild. At a time when all forms of media appear to be dividing us from each other and our natural world, it is indeed a tonic to be reminded of our deep-rooted evolutionary connection to all living beings.
