„Wahre Freundschaft braucht vieles, aber Dominanz gehört nicht dazu.“ (Daniela Friedl) Pferde spiegeln uns auf eine ganz besondere Weise, welche für unser persönliches Wachstum außergewöhnlich hilfreich sein kann. Ihr unmittelbares Feedback ist weder verletzend oder wertend noch manipulierend und genau deshalb schafft es Raum für echte Selbstreflektion und Entwicklung. Dieses Geschenk der Tiere an uns Menschen muss jedoch von Herzen kommen und freiwillig gegeben werden, denn erzwungen verliert es seinen Wert. Begib dich mit diesem Buch auf eine Reise der besonderen Art – fernab von Dominanz, Unterwerfung oder Druck – und lerne dabei, dich selbst und dein Pferd aus einem völlig neuen Blickwinkel zu betrachten. Das von der Autorin entwickelte pferdegestützte Konzept kombiniert gängige Entspannungsverfahren mit Yoga, Atemtechniken, Fantasiereisen sowie Auszügen aus der Chakren- und Aromatherapie und zielt auf Entspannung, Selbsterkenntnis sowie den Abbau von Ängsten ab.

Colin adopted the traumatized dog, brought him home and named him George. Both man and dog were heartbroken and lacking trust, but together, they learned how to share a space, how to socialize, and most of all, how to overcome their bad experiences. At the same time, Colin relived childhood memories of his beloved grandfather, a decorated war hero and a man who gave him hope when he needed it most. Then everything changed. Colin was offered a great new job in Los Angeles, California. He took George with him and the pair began a new life together on the sunny beaches around L.A.

Meanwhile, Colin headed to the beach to rekindle his love for surfing, but when George encountered the ocean and a surfboard for the first time, he did a surprising thing—he jumped right on the board. Through surfing, George and Colin began a life-altering adventure and a deep healing process that brought them back to life. As their story took them to exciting new heights, Colin learned how to follow George’s lead, discovering that he may have rescued George but that in the end, it was George who rescued him.

This title provides a thorough theoretical and practical introduction to the application of neural networks to pattern recognition and intelligent signal processing. It has been tested on students, unfamiliar with neural networks, who were able to pick up enough details to successfully complete their masters or final year undergraduate projects. The text also presents a comprehensive treatment of a class of neural networks called common bandwidth spherical basis function NNs, including the probabilistic NN, the modified probabilistic NN, and the general regression NN.

Adorned with the jewels of Eastern philosophy and eloquent Sanskrit, one woman's story of her quest for life's meaning unfolds like a poetic story without a script. Her lyrical prose charts a journey from youthful hope to the possibility of wisdom- and even transcendence... Kavita is a novella, a word, a mood, a concept that stems from the Italian Renaissance period. A novella is short, uncomplicated, with no sub-plots, and often intended to be read in one sitting. It explains little, but takes the reader by the hand through a brief story more concerned with personal and emotional development than with any bigger picture or grand-scheme depths. It lounges, too, in more luxuriant descriptions than are found in their big sisters: short stories and small books. Kavita is a Sanskrit word meaning "poetry," and this novella is a story that unfolds through often raw, personal poems, into the world the author now inhabits and which sings to her in poetic beauty daily.
