The Bushman Way of Tracking God: The Original Spirituality of the Kalahari People
The Kalahari Bushmen are the keepers of the world's oldest living culture. In spite of colossal challenges and never-ending crises, they have survived for over 60,000 years with joy and peace, yet their spiritual teachings, the source of their enduring wisdom, have never been fully presented.
For the first time, these ancient oral traditions have been put down onto paper by a researcher so unique, he was featured in American Shaman: an Odyssey of Global Healing Traditions, which won a Best Spiritual Book award from Spirituality & Health magazine. Bradford Keeney takes the reader through the veil of original spirituality, connecting the fragments of world religions to a source that is unlike any other. Through this wisdom, readers can find the deepest meaning, fullest purpose, and highest joy in life.
The Bushman's Way to Tracking God is articulated through twelve original mysteries, including: activating the non-subtle universal life force (what the Bushmen call n/om), heightening emotional experience, vibratory interaction, direct downloading and absorption of sacred knowledge, extraordinary healing, activation of the ecstatic “pump,” spontaneous ways of rejuvenation, attending the spiritual classrooms, so-called telepathy, an uncommon range of mystical experiences, and last but not least, total bliss.
Bradford Keeny’s exhuberant presence roars through the pages like a force of nature. He combines the verbal passion of an evangelical preacher with the visceral language patterns of a rap artist to grab readers by the ears and shake them to their core. By emulating the vigorous shaking practices of the Kalahari Bushmen, the oldest continuous spiritual tradition on the planet, Keeney wants us to lose our reserve and connect with our emotions in order to experience the deep joy of connection to all and “climb the ropes to God. “
