With deep respect and awe for the cultures they visit, the two of them bring back wisdom and practical methods of boosting our health, happiness, and sense of meaning. Their latest subject is seiki jutsu, a powerful form of movement therapy and energy work that looks promising as a way to alleviate some of the problems of our increasingly fragmented and sedentary lives.” (Jay Walljasper, former editorial director and editor of Utne Reader, and author of All That We Share)
“Seiki Jutsu ends with a conversation on "Juggling Zen, Jazz, and Seiki" where the Keeneys put on an awesome display of their wit, playfulness, insight, spirituality, and polyphonic thinking. And because they are filled with energy, it all comes across as perfectly effortless and totally natural!” (Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice)

This new book written with his wife and partner Hillary Keeney is a fuller and deeper presentation of the subject of non-subtle energy medicine. It teaches the art of self-healing, as well as how to heal others. As typical of the Keeney’s, they also present material from other non-subtle energy traditions. The daily practice of seiki-jutsu is described in a clear manner, so that anyone can learn the practice. I would suggest, in addition to the book, to watch the seiki videos that are on youtube as well as on the Keeney’s website in order to get a feel for this excellent practice. [...]
Even though I am generally a scientific minded person, I do have a philosophical side of me which is why I bought and read this book (Seiki Jutsu: The practice of non-subtle energy medicine by Bradford and Hillary Keeney). This book is organized in a way which makes it easy to follow the material. The introduction explains in general terms what “Seiki” means and is all about. The second part explores the method used and taught by Ikuko Osumi Sensei (Sensei means teacher in Japanese) and the lineage of Seiku Jutsu which was passed on to the authors by Osumi Sensei. The third section explores the transmission of Seiki. The daily Seiki Exercise is covered in the fourth section. The fifth section is about using spontaneous movement to energize and heal the body. Seiki conversation is explained in section six. Section seven covers being mentored in Seiki Jutsu. The final section deals with hatching a spiritual universe. There is also an afterword and an appendix section you should also read.
There is a lot of Asian and Western mysticism involved in the study of Seiki Jutsu, most of which I personally do not buy; nevertheless, I do think this is a book for anyone who is interested in the esoteric approach to life in general. As someone into Zen and Haiku, I appreciate the spiritual aspects of these arts but I still keep my feet firmly planted on the ground. I did think this was a well-written and informative book on this ancient Japanese spiritual art.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior’s poetic tribute).
This book shows us the history of Seiki from it’s beginning to our modern times. We are also taught about the transmission of Seiki. We are give a daily exercise to use to bring more Seiki into our lives. There are people’s experiences with Seiki throughout out the book and it shows how Seiki impacted them. I also like how we are told if we just ask for Seiki it will come into our lives. When Seiki comes to use we begin to move spontaneously and feel more energized and alive.
Overall, I liked learning about a different kind of energy healing that I hadn’t previously known about. I also found it interesting to learn that Seiki had been used by the Samuri. I would recommend this book to those who want to learn about a different form of energy healing. This form of energy healing may be different from what you have heard of before but it will expand your mind to other ways of healing.
I acknowledge that I received this book free of charge from Inner Traditions Publishing in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion of it.
This book transports itself, what it is talking about.
You can barerly resist to begin to shake and sing, and joyously follow the ancien track to heaven accompanied by Ikuko Osumi Sensei (lineage of Seiki Jutsu), the Kalahry Bushmen, Christian shakers and numberless traditional spiritual seekers and finders all over the world. Not to forget Hillary and Braford Keeney of course.
This book could be dangerous if you want to stay the same in the same world.
The Keeneys broke my heart open. Following their genial advices how to deconstruc my world for gettin a fresh every day life, I found myself drilling a hole in that wonderfull book as they suggested. Shaking with lough and love.
A book which is bound for crossing abyss . The inner ones and those between human beings, cultures and religions.
