The key to harmony lies in communication.
Humans once shared a common language with animals. It was a language that predated words, a language of sensitivity, from the heart. Since man broke away from the animal world it has been lost. But there are still traces of it.
By exploring the whole palette of modes of communication used by animals (posture, behaviour, smell, colour, electrical signals, infrasound, etc.) Norin Chai hopes to rediscover the forgotten pathways of this language shared by all living creatures. He hopes to help overcome the barrier between men and animals, and to improve our exchanges with them. But also amongst ourselves.
Humans would then reclaim a superior wisdom and their own innate harmony.
Born in Cambodia in 1969, Norin Chai came to France at the age of four. Having started to practice mediation at 10, he became a Buddhist monk at 20. He is head veterinary surgeon for the menagerie at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris, and the author of one previous book, Sagesse animale.
