water wants to flow,
air wants to rise,
earth wants to bind,
chaos wants to devour.
The quote comes from the opening of 'Black Horse White Horse' - a book about working shamanically with horses, horse spirit, horse energy. Being a portal, it's quite a short book, ideal for people who are new to the subject.
Being a Melusine Draco title, we of course aren't talking about 'horse' as some vague and abstract concept - the specific horses of specific myths are explored, the history of the horse, how human cultures have related to horses, different kinds of horse - there's a lot of knowledge packed into these pages, and takes us from working with the idea of 'horse', to something much more real and intense.
