By Rosalyn W. Berne
When the Horses Whisper: The Wisdom of Wise and Sentient Beings records Rosalyn’s discovery of her ability to communicate with horses and her conversations with a small herd of horses who live and work in a sanctuary retreat in Costa Rica. Once the horses realized Rosalyn was able to hear them they opened up completely, showing her a world of strength, beauty, love and profound wisdom. As the story of each horse is revealed, Rosalyn discovers they are telling more than their own stories – they are teaching and helping her to rediscover and claim her authentic self. Read the stirring interview with author Rosalyn Berne, by Kristie Knutson: When the Horses Whisper Interview.
When The Horses Whisper shows the capacity of horses to help us heal the human heart. It expresses in human language what horses have to say when given the chance to speak. It is a story about the sacred bond between us, and the communication made possible when the horse-human relationship is based on love. Conversations with fifteen horses, most of who live and work in Costa Rica, are featured along with their photographs, capturing them as individual beings in service to humans on a shared evolutionary journey. This journey amounts to the “re-membering” of our whole selves in the wholeness of creation, especially the parts we split off, deny, and place in shadow because they are too painful. Horses, as the book shows, can help us see these lost parts, and call forth our courage to reclaim them. For the author, these included the loss of a newborn daughter, the mental illness of an adult son, letting go of a thirty-year marriage, and childhood sexual abuse. The story recounts the equine healing work that helped in reclaiming her authentic self. This book is testimony to the power of horses and equine healing work in transforming life’s losses into a deeper human wholeness and a further communion with the non-human world. ~Rosalyn W. Berne
