DISCOVER AND INSPIRE: An excerpt from THE FIVE ROLES OF A MASTER HERDER by Linda Kohanov
By Publicity Admin

Author and teacher Linda Kohanov is a master of the way of the horse, an experiential wisdom gained by studying the nonpredatory power of horses. InThe Five Roles of a Master Herder: A Revolutionary Model for Socially Intelligent Leadership (now available in paperback), she adapts these horse-inspired insights into useful tools for developing collaborative leadership and managing change. Master Herders of nomadic herding cultures developed a multifaceted, socially intelligent form of leadership combining the five roles of DominantLeaderSentinelNurturer/Companion, and Predator. The fluid interplay of these roles allowed interspecies communities to move across vast landscapes, dealing with predators and changing climates, protecting and nurturing the herd while keeping massive, gregarious, often-aggressive animals together — without the benefit of fences and with very little reliance on restraints.

ALAN WATTS ON THE LAWS OF SPIRIT AND NATURE: An excerpt from THE COLLECTED LETTERS OF ALAN WATTS coedited by Joan Watts & Anne Watts
By Publicity Admin

In this brand-new, never-before-published collection, we get to take a deep, personal dive into the thoughts and feelings of one of the Western world’s most beloved philosophers, Alan Watts. His daughters Joan and Anne Watts put together this fascinating archive of letters, newsletters, and other correspondence that covers everything from his early years in a British boarding school to the last months of his life living in Northern California. 

In the following excerpt, we get an early look at the fascinating interfaith connections Alan Watts was already making in his thoughts and ideas. In 1939, he was just twenty-four years old with a baby daughter (Joan Watts, one of the coeditors of this collection) and had freshly arrived in America after the rumblings of war in Europe became too loud to ignore.
