Pressestimmen

“I had a personal experience of Brad’s shaking power. . . . He placed one of his hands on my upper back and the other opposite on my upper chest. He began to shake vigorously, and apparently involuntarily, throughout his entire body. His face, shoulders, torso, and feet were vibrating with some invisible power, like a wave that was continuously cresting in his body and crashing and rippling in his fingertips. I felt the trembling power pass through me. . . . While receiving this beautiful ‘gift,’ I was transported to the Kalahari. I saw the tribal people with whom he had danced; I viewed their villages and landscape. I was in Africa as truly as if I had opened my eyes and found myself physically there.” (Kenneth Cohen, author of The Way of Qigong: The Art and Science of Chinese Energy Healing)

“Indigenous wisdom knows that ‘to live is to move.’ To awaken from our deep slumber means our bones will be rattled, and we’ll be shaken to the core. In this invitation into very ancient medicine, we hear the voices of the elders issuing a timely wake-up call, accessible to the modern world through Bradford Keeney, their brother and representative in the West.” (Malidoma Somé, Ph.D., elder, teacher, and author of Healing Wisdom of Africa and Of Water and t)

“Dr. Keeney’s work marks the beginning of an awakening of the universal life force that is accessible to everyone. I have personally experienced his method of moving the life force in my own body--circulating it up and down my spine, passing it through my fingertips, and feeling it tingling the tips of my toes. It is time for each of us to become acquainted with this energizing force.” (Dr. Robert Fulford, author of Dr. Fulford’s Touch of Life: Aligning Body, Mind, and Spirit to)

“Bradford Keeney is an authentic shaman who, in his ceremonial practice, answers the question: What would happen if you gave a university professor a kind heart and a limitless infusion of spiritual power?” (Stephen and Robin Larsen, authors of A Fire in the Mind: The Life of Joseph Campbell)

“I felt like I was floating and wanted to move my body with speed and precision. All of my senses were intensified. I recognized this condition as being similar to the ki activation that I had learned to utilize in aikido training. The difference was that the intensity of this energy was magnitudes beyond what I had previously experienced; it was beyond what I’d ever imagined.” (Don Wright, former teacher of Ericksonian hypnotherapy at the Esalen Institute)

“The experience I had in Brad Keeney’s ceremony was very important--his hands irradiated light in my head.” (Dr. Pierre Weil, author of The Art of Living in Peace: Towards a New Peace Consciousness, founder of)

"Another way to open the self to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual  flow is through movement. . . . However it comes, one is forever changed . . . " (ForeWord Magazine, Jan/Feb 2008)

Bradford Keeney ist Anthropologe und Psychotherapeut.
Seit Jahrzehnten reist er um die Welt, immer auf der Suche nach den ur-ältesten Wurzeln menschlicher Heilkunst. Selbst als Heiler und Traditionsbewahrer mehrerer Kulturen ausgebildet, anerkannt und autorisiert, führt er uns mit diesem Buch in eine wilde, ungezähmte, ursprüngliche, fremde und faszinierende Welt der Heilung. Er zeigt uns, wie auch heute noch überall auf der Welt sich Menschen der universellen Lebensenergie überlassen und von dieser mittels ekstatischer, völlig spontaner Bewegungen in veränderte Bewusstseinszustände und letztlich umfassende Heilung von Körper, Geist und Seele führen lassen. Schütteln, Zittern, Tanzen, Singen, Schreien, Stöhnen, Schwitzen, Lachen, Weinen, ekstatische Gefühle jeder Art - egal was, nicht die Menschen, sondern die Lebensenergie bringt sich so ungehindert zum Ausdruck. Zum Nutzen und Segen jener, die sich ihr bedingungslos hingeben.

Dies sind die ältesten und ursprünglichsten Formen menschlicher Heilung. Es sind jene Heil- und Lebensweisen, aus denen sich dann im späteren Verlaufe menschlicher Entwicklung solche weithin bekannten Heilen-mit-Bewegung-Traditionen wie Yoga oder Qi Gong herausbildeten.

Zusammen mit Keeney reisen die Leser um die ganze Welt, um an seinen faszinierenden Erlebnissen, Erkenntnissen und Lehren teilzuhaben. Ein fesselnder und erschütternder Bericht über Welten, die uns "Moderne" mit dem konfrontieren, was tief in uns schlummert und was wir nicht mehr kennen und zulassen wollen / dürfen. Ein Plädoyer für Offenheit und Hingabe.

Das erste Mal, dass mich ein Buch zu Tränen rührt.
Brad Keeney versteht es meisterhaft, tiefe Spiritualität, Humor, Liebe, Tanz, Freiheit, uraltes Wissen mit moderner Psychologie und Wissenschaft zu verbinden.
Ein Buch, das wahrhaft auf-schüttelt und wirk-lich Medizin ist!

HASH(0x9b6fbe7c) von 5 Sternen Movement Practice Explained 27. August 2007
Von Y - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you are drawn to movement as a therapy, this book is a must. I have been interested in energy medicine and practicing as a homeopath since 1996. For years I have studied shamanism and have walked the path of a shaman. More recently I became fascinated with the idea of movement. I felt it from the inside out. This book was able to give me historical and practical information about "shaking medicine" that i have always known on a gut level. I also liked that the book explained the relationship between "sitting still" meditation and "movement" meditation. In my practice there are many clients who struggle with beign able to sit still yet they have a desire to meditate. In Shaking Medicine, I have found a tool to help them. This book has been of great help to me. The CD is also excellent quality.

HASH(0x9b708270) von 5 Sternen Pass the n|om please! 3. Februar 2008
Von Scott Knudsen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
For anyone who enjoyed reading the author's first book on shaking titled Bushman Shaman, Shaking Medicine gives the reader a more in-depth look on the shake itself. Amongst other things Keeney talks in length on what the shake means to different societies and how it has evolved or became suppressed over time. How the shake relates to our society and/or religion. And he also discusses how anyone can learn to shake.

Quite a fascinating book that I would highly recommend. I would also highly recommend Keeney's other book, Bushman Shaman.

HASH(0x9b715750) von 5 Sternen Quaking Shaker, or Shaking Quaker? 18. November 2014
Von Paquime - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The love of my life purchased this book for me when I thought I was going crazy. The shaking happened to me, or I happened to the shaking? Hah! Either way, it just started and has become part of my personal spiritual practice. If anyone out there is confused as to if the shaking is a form of spiritual practice this book will definitely give you the answers you seek. There was a point where I had to just walk away from the book however, because I got all that I needed out of it and turned to my inner-self as a guide rather than Keeney. I do appreciate the fact that he did write a book about Shaking Medicine, guiding us Westerners (where it can happen in a synchronistic, natural spontaneous way making one confused and thinking one is going coo-coo for cocoa puffs). I really enjoyed learning about the Quakers and the Shakers. I can leave the CD though, it doesn't vibe with me at all but if it works for others that is great.

HASH(0x9b715444) von 5 Sternen Ecstatic Experience for Healing and Knowledge 15. August 2014
Von Garnet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a terrific book that I recommend highly. The author talks about the experience and healing properties (both physically and mentally) of "shaking." Shaking is essentially when you experience an ecstasy that feels like electricity or heat and that makes your body move or shake or vibrate. This can be tapped into to heal yourself or others and as a means of gnostic forms of understanding. Generally, you "shake" and then you go into a deep trance state where you come to knowledge of unseen things or go and visit with spirits or even God. Sometimes, you then see "ropes" or "strands" that you can follow and travel elsewhere in spirit.

The chapters go into the general ideas and history behind shaking, as well as discussing its usage in the Shakers/Quakers, the Bushmen of Africa, various Christian churches in the South and so on. The chapters aboue the Shakers and Quakers was especially interesting, as the "shake" is often how they acquired new songs and other forms of spiritual "gifts."

You can either put this to use in your normal spiritual practices or just use it as a means to tap into healing power and feel better both mentally and physically.

The book includes a format for arranging a shaking experience, as well as providing a CD of sounds/music for use with shaking. The author says that you need to do this for at least 40 minutes or so to really let loose and get the most benefit out of it. He also recommends having people who will watch out for those who will be shaking, to keep them from running into things such as walls or furniture.

I have used the CD and it really does work...after you get over the initial self-consciousness that keeps you from letting loose and getting into the movement. Though, of course, you should consider your physical limitations when going into something that means you have to shake or dance for a good length of time. I think that this can be done while seated, however, and still get good results.

Fascinating book and it really makes you think about how humans both need to learn control and when to give up that control under the proper circumstances.

Von kaioatey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I am conflicted about this book.

There is no doubt in my mind that shaking is good for us. At its minimum, rhythmic movement of the body connects body systems into an organic whole. Shaking restores the flexibility of the connective tissue and eases communication between ligaments, bones, fascia, blood and lymph vessels and the endings of afferent/efferent nerves. Furthermore, when done with a proper attitude and surrender, dancing propels the dancer into the transpersonal.

Here is where it gets a little shakey for me. What Keeney promotes as "shaking medicine" may not have that much to do with the !Kung (Bushmen). Here is an interiew with a !Kung recorded by the anthropologist Richard Lee: "Trance medicine really hurts. As you begin to trance the power (n/om) slowly heats inside and pulls at your insides. Your mind and your senses leave and youdon't think clearly. You can't listen to people and understand what they say. In !kia (trance) your heart stops, you're dead, your thoughts are nothing, you breathe with difficulty. You see ghosts killing people, you smell burning, rotten flesh. Then you heal and you pull sickness out." During the trance, the shaman (according to the anthropologist) "trembles violently, sweats profusely, staggers, lower his head, bleeds from the nose, froths at the mouth and finally crashes to the ground."

How many people at Keeney's workshops bleed from their nose (a result of dehydration), dance the whole night into exhaustion, exorcise ghosts or fall unconscious to the ground? How many will "journey" into the sky where they learn from the ancestors in a village in the sky, animal totems (giraffe and eland especially) and the "Big God"? My guess is: zero, and that includes Keeney himself. In other words, Keeney's "shaking medicine" is, in my mind, an invitation to innocuous social feel-good dancing. No problem with that, i enjoy shaking booties as much as any other guy... but this has little to do with the !Kung.

Keeney is never detracted from name-dropping... he has studied with this Zulu, that Bushman, this cybernetic specialist, that African-American church all of whom have had (according to K.) the wisdom to recognize the importance of this holy man. Unfortunately, in this day and age name-dropping is at the very core of the definition of a spiritual charlatan. What has the man actually learned? Real spiritual message should stand on its own - yet when dissociated from these 'credentials", there seems to be little to Keeney's insights. I kept asking myself, what is this man's ACTUAL contribution to spirituality? The fact that we need to shake our bodies?

I would be more impressed if Keeney actually learned from the Bushmen how to "ascend the ropes to the Sky God". This does not seem to be the case, at least it is not mentioned in the text. I am inclined to think that, if anything, this book reveal a man who is the quintessential opportunist and trickster. As for the CD, "arrhythmic cacophony" is what comes to mind.

Post Scriptum: Lord have mercy, i seem to have stirred a hornet's nest with this review. They have come out and Their (brainwashed Keeney acolytes') name is Legion. Some freely admit that they have never read a Keeney book (which as far as i know qualifies as internet trolling). They don;t care about the misrepresentations of the San and the Kung as embodied in the "Shaking Medicine TM", nor about pseudo-anthropology presented to gullible audiences. So i guess we've got to give it to the man, he surely seema to inspire fierce - if uninformed - loyalty.
