Fourth Edition

Zen & Horseback Riding

Fourth Edition

by Tom Nagel

Foreword by Sally Swift

145 Pages

Zen & Horseback Riding explains the location, importance and use of the psoas muscles. The psoas are the deep core muscles that link the upper and lower girdles of the body. They are the basis of all efficient body movement and can be used by everyone in any athletic activity.

This book explains how to use your body to achieve tone, find self-carriage and to move correctly both on and off the horse.

Zen & Horseback Riding is about using horseback riding as a means of self-development and training. It is about improving both your riding and your life.

Simple
Pushes

Finding Balance in Life

Simple Pushes

by Tom Nagel



Simple Pushes presents a method for finding balance in life. Beginning with an exercise to determine whether you push or pull on the steering wheel of your car, you can become aware of your unconscious habit of pushing or pulling in life. Pushing and pulling are not inherently good or bad, one not better than the other. Sometimes it is better to push and sometimes it is better to pull.


People whose habit is pushing act without considering the circumstances or the impact of their actions upon others. People whose tendency is pulling think and feel too much instead of acting. These chronic habits lead to imbalance and create barriers to leading a fulfilled life.


This booklet contains an idea for gaining insight into why you do what you do and why others do what they do. It then gives examples of how to use simple pushes to achieve balance. This book is a short and simple read, yet may lead to profound changes in your life.
