Learning to 'listen' with all our senses and the magic that happens when we keep an open mind about the idea of communication from the animal world
When Candida Baker left her city lifestyle and high-profile job to live in the hills behind Byron Bay, little did she realise this was the first step on a journey of self-discovery - through her natural horsemanship, photography and writing - to an enhanced sense of spiritual and psychic connection with the animal world. Told through a series of true stories, at its essence The Heart of a Horse is about learning to 'listen' with all our senses. Using her lifelong love of horses as the main conduit for bridging the gap between our thought processes and intuition, Candida describes the magic that happens when we keep an open mind about the idea of communication.
A well-known author and journalist, Candida Baker combines her love of horses, writing and spirituality to lead her on a continuing journey of creative self-discovery. She is the author of numerous books, has edited and contributed to various anthologies and her writing has been widely published in Australia, the UK and US.
