The Teachings of Tempu: Practical Meditation for Daily Life details the life and meditation techniques of Nakamura Tempu (1876-1968). Mr. Nakamura taught Shin-shin-toitsu-do ("The Way of Mind and Body Unification") for over 50 years and authored bestselling books. He trained over 100,000 people, including members of the Japanese Imperial Family, government officials, business leaders, top athletes, celebrated actors, martial arts experts, and notable novelists. The book begins with Mr. Nakamura's early years and a global quest to cure his tuberculosis. This search took him to the USA, where he studied medicine at Columbia University. Next, he traveled to Europe, where he lived with actress Sarah Bernhardt and researched psychology. In Egypt he encountered Kaliapa, an Indian mystic and yoga master, who brought him to India for a final attempt to save his life. After austere meditation in the Himalayas, Nakamura Tempu attained enlightenment, shook off the bonds of illness, and returned to Japan a changed man. The Teachings of Tempu uses episodes from Mr. Nakamura's life to introduce his philosophy of mind and body unification, his forms of meditation, and how these skills can help you attain better health as well as deeper calmness, concentration, and willpower. It contains rare photos from Japan, which chronicle his long life. Also featured are extensive quotes from his books, the first time his writing has been offered in English. The Teachings of Tempu presents experiments and exercises you can try  at home to understand mind and body unification--the essence of Mr.  Nakamura's realization and the secret to unlocking human potential. Illustrations of these exercises and forms of meditation are provided, along with an Introduction by Sawai Atsuhiro, a leading teacher of Shin- shin-toitsu-do and a direct student of Mr. Nakamura. Dr. Robert Carter, author and Professor Emeritus of Philosophy for Canada's Trent University, wrote the Foreword.

From the Author:

The Teachings of Tempu: Practical Meditation for Daily Life was written to expose the Western world to a unique philosophy and set of meditation techniques that have the power to beneficially transform your life. I studied these teachings and forms of meditation in Japan, where they are known as Shin-shin-toitsu-do (a.k.a. Shin-shin-toitsu-ho) and The Teachings of Tempu can be thought of as a continuation of my book Japanese Yoga: The Way of Dynamic Meditation.
Shin-shin-toitsu-do, "The Way of Mind and Body Unification," was founded in the early 1900s by Nakamura Tempu Sensei. Nakamura Sensei lived in India, where he studied the art of Raja yoga, the yoga of meditation. After studying medicine at Columbia University, he blended Indian meditation and health improvement with his background in medicine, psychology, Japanese healing arts and meditation, and Japanese martial arts. He taught for many years in Japan, authored best-selling books, and counted among his students a large number of Japan's top executives, politicians, fine artists, athletes, martial artists, and people from every walk of life. But few Westerners have yet been exposed to these extraordinary teachings.

Shin-shin-toitsu-do offers you practical forms of seated and moving meditation, breathing methods for health, stretching exercises, autosuggestion for altering negative habits, stress management, and self-healing techniques that are little-known in the West. Emphasis is also placed on the development of ki (chi in Chinese). Ki amounts to life energy, and its cultivation has a profound effect on mental and physical health. You, like many of my students, may experience greatly enhanced concentration, willpower, calmness, relaxation, and physical fitness.

Make a positive and life-altering decision. Consider adding Shin-shin-toitsu-do to your life, and discover a way of living rooted in health, happiness, and harmony. You can do just that by reading The Teachings of Tempu: Practical Meditation for Daily Life. 

From the Inside Flap:

Human beings have a tremendous latent potential that's waiting to be unearthed. Nakamura Tempu Sensei discovered the extraordinary energy of mind and body unification beside an ancient waterfall in the Himalayan mountains, allowing him to heal from tuberculosis and manifest a new state of consciousness. Upon his return to Japan, he created a new path called Shin-shin-toitsu-do: "The Way of Mind and Body Unification." A form of Japanese yoga and meditation, Shin-shin-toitsu-do unearths our buried talents and rarely realized potential. Read The Teachings of Tempu: Practical Meditation for Daily Life and learn how the principles of mind and body coordination taught by Nakamura Sensei can lead you toward better health, deeper calmness, stronger concentration, and greater willpower.
