I am starting a little book club of my favorite books. Primarily these will be animal/healing books – we’ll see how this goes!! We will start with “Playing with Lukas” since Karen Murdock – the writer, owner and trainer of Lukas (the world’s smartest horse) will be on my radio show next week – April 7th.
Meanwhile, you can watch many videos and just read my little review below:
I just finished reading: “Playing with Lukas”, Karen Murdock’s wonderful journey with Lukas – the world’s smartest horse. Like many of us that have gone down this path of working with animals and helping to teach their kindness, intelligence and value, we didn’t always have the easiest time with people. Karen’s beginnings are in sharp contrast to the outcome. Her life now is surrounded by peace and love – the love and support of her family with her biggest fan, teacher and student – Lukas. The devotion and connection of the animals was a true commitment from the start as she illustrates in her story.
This book is not just for horse lovers. Karen has a very simple way of using soft sounds, ease, consistency, voice and intention to connect with your animals and create a joyful training process. Do not be fooled by the simplicity of the training method, she is able to accomplish very technical and intricate things with her partner Lukas.
This is an especially important book for anyone that has a “challenge” animal – one that the rest of the world would toss away for various reasons and yet you see the divine intelligence and love – these techniques could literally save your animal friend’s life! Lukas has earned his title ~ the world’s smartest horse and imagine, he got the title just from playing with a human! Now there’s a life lesson for us humans.
Karen is going on to work more with mainstream science to make sure that the extreme intelligence of the horse is documented – it’s very exciting for all of us that know how brilliant animals are. Her book can be found at Lulu (www.lulu.com) as an e-book or a print version and will soon be released at Amazon. For more information on them: www.playingwithlukas.com.
