Background Information

H. E. Davey is the Director of the Sennin Foundation Center for Japanese Cultural Arts, which offers instruction in Japanese yoga, martial arts, healing arts, and fine arts. His introduction to the arts of Japan came via martial arts. Since the age of five, he's studied jujutsu in the USA and Japan. He has received the title of Kyoshi from the Kokusai Budoin, a Tokyo-based international federation. Kokusai Budoin defines Kyoshi as a "Master's Certificate" and equivalent to sixth- to eighth-degree black belt. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the Shudokan Martial Arts Association.

In middle school, Mr. Davey began Shin-shin-toitsu-do, a system of Japanese yoga and meditation founded by Nakamura Tempu. He's the only member of Tempu-Kai, an organization established by Mr. Nakamura, who is a full-time instructor of Shin-shin-toitsu-do. He's practiced in Japan and the USA under Nakamura's senior disciples, including Sawai Atsuhiro and Hashimoto Tetsuichi. Mr. Davey's also received extensive instruction in Nakamura's bodywork and healing with ki ("life energy"), which he teaches.

Mr. Davey also studied shodo, or Japanese brush writing and ink painting, for 20 years under the late Kobara Ranseki, recipient of the Order of the Rising Sun. Mr. Davey holds the top rank in Ranseki Sho Juku shodo and exhibits each year in Japan. He's received numerous honors in these exhibitions, including Jun Taisho ("Associate Grand Prize").

H. E. Davey's articles on Japanese arts and his artwork have appeared in numerous American and Japanese magazines and newspapers. He's the author of Unlocking the Secrets of Aiki-jujutsu, Brush Meditation: A Japanese Way to Mind & Body Harmony, Japanese Yoga: The Way of Dynamic Meditation, Living the Japanese Arts & Ways: 45 Paths to Meditation & Beauty, The Japanese Way of the Artist, and The Japanese Way of the Flower: Ikebana as Moving Meditation.

The Japanese Way of the Artist Facebook Page
The Japanese Way of the Artist is a collection of three of H. E. Davey's most popular books. It's published by Stone Bridge Press (www.stonebridge.com). Included in a single volume are: * Living the Japanese Arts and Ways: 45 Paths to Meditation & Beauty * Brush Meditation: A Japanese Way to Mind & Body Harmony * The Japanese Way of the Flower: Ikebana as Moving Meditation The three works anthologized here are essential to understanding the spiritual, meditative, and physical basis of all classical Japanese crafts, fine arts, and martial arts. Living the Japanese Arts & Ways covers key concepts—like wabi and “stillness in motion”—while the other two books show the reader how to use brush calligraphy (shodo) and flower arranging (ikebana) to achieve mind-body unification. Illustrated with diagrams, drawings, and photographs.

Japanese Yoga: The Way of Dynamic Meditation Facebook Page
Based on the eclectic Western-Eastern teachings of Nakamura Tempu Sensei, this step-by-step introduction to Japanese yoga (Shin-shin-toitsu-do) presents stretching, healing, and meditation exercises designed for mind/body integration. It is the first book in English to detail the life and teachings of Mr. Nakamura. In Japanese yoga, which is based on mind and body unification principles, the ultimate goal is enhanced concentration, calmness, and willpower for a longer, healthier, and fuller life. H. E. Davey Sensei also shows how Japanese yoga relates to various classical Japanese arts as part of a tradition of spiritual practice with spiritual and aesthetic roots in India, Japan, and the West. Illustrated, with a glossary and reference section.
