Book Introduction:
"In this book I am sharing what I believe to be some
insights and knowledge with respect to clinically applied energetics
(Chinese medicine, alternative medicine, biology and chemistry),
psychology and healing based on 20 years of international travel,
clinical work, formal spiritual and Martial Art training in Europe,
North Africa, North America and above all, Asia.

I believe human nature strives to be happy. Therefore,
this books appeal rests on the offering of a fresh
positive perspective of life and healing that has led
many people to find an increased sense of joy in their
lives. People are more and more willing to and
capable of seeing their lives from a new perspective
even if doing so goes against the established
mass consciousness. People are choosing
truth over harmony in their lives.

I mentally relive many emotions in my life: the magic
of being lost in contemplation of the night stars from
an isolated tropical South China Sea island; the fear
of being in a Moroccan holding cell; my despair over
the tragic lives and deaths of patients in an Asian
heroin detoxification centre. However, in writing this
book, I chose to concentrate on the more important
ideas that these experiences culminated in as
opposed to stressing the exotic experiences

I have had the good fortune of traveling afar and
learning from many disciples of various schools of
thought. Many people exert much time and effort
debating the superiority of one philosophy, theory, or
teacher over another. Many well-known gurus, monks,
martial artists and healers have acquired reputations
involving exotic, mysterious and hard to believe deeds
and ancestral lineage. I feel strongly that if one gains
value from anyone regardless of what he would claim
as his identity or experience, than perhaps, there is
value and one can do something with it. This on the
other hand will inherently create limitations- it
naturally does to name anything, to define it, to limit it.
Those limitations then stand in the way of the next
step of where the energy and information is used.
In all cases it will to some extent:
it is simply a matter then of determining in which
areas it would be limiting." (end of book preface quote)

An exciting, interesting, succinct, unique real life story
about Sweeney Sensei's ten-year overseas adventure in
many Asian countries during the 1990s and the path that
he tenaciously forged to break the massive veil of illusion
and deceit so prevalent in much of the world today
concerning health and biology. His experiences from a
pilgrimage to Italy when he was eight years old to life in
Europe as a teenager to a ten-year quest in Asia as an
adult clinician and martial artist has allowed him to glean
from his unique life experiences and the accompanying
suffering and joy his present philosophy of health and
healing based on the reality of human/animal biology,
physics and joy.

Chapter One: My First Pilgrimage
the major impact on me, as an eight year-old, of my first
enchanting mysterious trip overseas as a pilgrimage to Italy

Chapter Four: Healing for Healings Sake
* how I approach patients with new or different information that is outside
their personal realm-of-consciousness
* discussion of the importance of the self-education/empowerment of
* engaging the inquiry process; clarification vs. consolation

the resonant principle: using teaching tai chi as an example for transferring
energy patterns to another so that they may continue the inquiry process on
their own despite feelings of guilt or denial
* healing as a subset of the path of assisting
* how assisting can aid in the completion of life cycles  

“Mental energies can sometimes block higher levels of understanding and
healing as they are associated with old habit patterns, thought forms of a
destructive nature or other aspects."

vital time in human evolution)
Evolutionary Considerations:

* how one connects to the significance of one's organs
* examples of emotion/organ connection and function clinically

ways as if to involve emotional and animal consciousness … .”

global consciousness and spiritual breakthrough

“… the paradox that the spiritual energy which is everywhere present is best
received by a singular focus because …”

Chapter Eight: Clinical Case Studies
This section has five very interesting and easy to read exceptional
case studies written for the average reader. I use real cases and
healing approaches based on my 15 years of clinical experience that
can offer the reader a new approach to looking at common problems
in life outside of the specific medical imbalance highlighted in each
These cases do not include details of acupuncture techniques, point combinations,
percentages of inert gas combinations, frequencies of laser and electricity and magnetic
gauss involved in each treatment.

* energetic/spiritual/psychological aspects of each case and how these relate to
the physical imbalance. A general TX plan including raw foods, psychological
shifts needed by each patient and progress or failure are discussed

* establishing essential trust and connecting with such a patient

at a soul level to want to redirect various energies in order to
realign his own nervous system.”

of a woman’s sense of value inherent there and the suppressing of so
many feelings and thought processes which must be controlled if a
woman is to act without resentment ….”

*moving overseas as both therapy and karmic acceleration
*Japan’s historical karma balancing

“The child will eventually learn that his own higher subtle bodies can be used for
his own healing, his own strengthening and do not have to be pulled into areas .....
