Linda Kohanov’s Virginia Beach, Virginia Tour Dates

September 10, 2016 - September 11, 2016

September 10, 2016 — 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. — The Heart of Evolution: Exploring the Hidden History and Untapped Potential of the Human Animal Bond

Indoor Seminar — By Linda Kohanov

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.”

September 11, 2016 — 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. — The Five Roles of a Master Herder

1-Day Indoor Skills Building Workshop by Linda Kohanov

This seminar offers practical tools for taking horse-inspired wisdom back to the human world. You will:

  • Discover the benefits and challenges of each role, as well as why balancing all five the roles is necessary to success in your personal as well as professional life.

This engaging indoor workshop offers compelling, nature-based tools for executives, managers, and coaches, as well as people who work in non-profit, social service, political and community based organizations.

Parents and teachers will discover the benefits of balancing all five roles in working with and caring for children of all ages.
