In this moving, at times mind-altering presentation, best-selling 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 and how and why our ancestors formed close partnerships with animals.
As she reveals in her new 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.”
