"Keeney's vision is leading the vanguard in defining and articulating the territory between psychology and spirit."-- "Eric Utne, founder of The UTNE Reader"
"The most striking example of the products, cures, and philosophies being offered that have their origins in practices of primitive cultures is from Bradford Keeney."-- "TIME magazine"
"Brad Keeney may be the closest we have to a genuine American shaman. In Bushman Shaman, he shares his remarkable adventures into the psyche and his equally remarkable sensibility as an explorer of the human spirit. Fascinating."-- "Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence"
"Bradford Keeney invites us to go beyond modernity to the oldest culture on Earth to find true magic and power. May those who take this journey with him surrender to their own ecstatic dance, and in so doing, find their way back home."-- "Malidoma Patrice SomΓ©, author of The Healing Wisdom of Africa and Of Water and the Spirit"
"There is no question in the minds of the Bushman healers that Keeney's strength and purposes are coterminous with theirs. I know this from talking myself with some of the Kalahari shamans who danced with him. They affirmed his power as a healer and their enjoyment of dancing with him. . . . He knows whereof he writes, having traveled 'ropes to God' himself for much of his life, in many places in addition to the Kalahari."-- "Megan Biesele, Ph.D., cofounder and coordinator of the Kalahari People's Fund, former member of the"
"Probably the most important book in the fields of healing and indigenous spirituality that's been published for many years. Keeney weaves together diverse threads of shamanic wisdom with deceptive ease--easy only because he became a shaman and lived the story on behalf of all of us. Anyone truly interested in the age-old questions of 'What is God' and 'Why are we here?' should read this book."-- "Rupert Isaacson, author of The Healing Land: The Bushmen and the Kalahari Desert"
"Bushman Shaman is a pleasure to read and will be of great interest to people studying psychotherapy or trance-dance healing."-- "David Paulsen, New Age Retailer, Fall 2005"
