Finding Spirit in Zen Shiatsu
“Finding Spirit in Zen Shiatsu”: An impactful story combining wit, wisdom and the profound experience of a spiritual traveller.
Finding Spirit in Zen Shiatsu is an enjoyable and inspiring read, a welcome retreat to go for inspiration. Kris Deva North blends an enjoyable mix of anecdotes from his travels, to hara diagnoses and five element theories. North founded the Zen School of Shiatsu in London and has been involved in healing work since the 1970s. He has a wealth of experience including appearing on UK national television demonstrating Taoist healing and tantric practices and a documentary of his work.
The reader joins North as he travels the globe and learns from Masters in Japan, Africa, Nepal, Hawaii and Australia. After too many mushrooms and too much partying, North cleans up his act and focuses more intently on his shiatsu practice and realizes that ‘Memorising symptoms and pushing points were of this world; seeing into the essence a step into spirit.’
The amount of valuable information in this book includes case study guidelines, coping with assessments and how to make your living doing what you love.
Overall, this easy-to-read accessible book is useful for anyone interested in shiatsu, from beginner to practitioner to teacher.
