Bushman Shaman

Region: Northeast
Location: Anywhere in the world!


Bradford Keeney details his initiation into the shamanic tradition of the Kalahari Bushmen. He had learned of the Kalahari "trance dance," wherein the dancers' bodies shake uncontrollably during healing ceremonies, and was drawn to this tradition with hopes that it might explain his own ecstatic "shaking," which he had first experienced at the age of 19. Keeney danced with Bushmen shamans for more than a dozen years in communities throughout Botswana and Namibia. Through his rediscovery of the "rope to God" in a Bushman shaman dream, he offers accounts of his shamanic world travels and the secrets of the soul he learned along the way.
