Te-Ate = Hand-Treatment/Therapy
Seiki Te-Ate is a journey of self-discovery and healing.
to the art of Tenchi Seiki Te-Ate is the concept of in-yo,
which is about balance - not balance in a static 'levelling-out'
sense, rather, a dynamic balance, an interplay between hard
and soft, tension and relaxation, inhaling and exhaling, activity
and rest, waking and sleeping.
Seiki Te-Ate provides us with a set of tools for continuously
returning the being to this state of dymamic balance - or flux
- a state of 'creative harmony'.
simplistic terms, these tools take two forms - self-developmental
exercises of a physical, meditative and energetic nature - and
techniques for performing therapeutic interventions on behalf
classed as a method of healing, the fundamental approach in
Tenchi Seiki Te-Ate is ideally to prevent illness or 'dis-ease'
from arising in the first place.
a deep level, the art is as much about understanding
yourself and others as it is about attempting to heal
yourself or others.
art of Tenchi Seiki Te-Ate calls for the cultivation of sensitivity
and foresight, and development of a positive attitude based
on the practitioner's confidence in their own ability to control
their 'personal world', and maintain a state of balance or 'creative
harmony' in their interaction with the greater world at large.
primary consideration for the developing practitioner is the
regulating of their life in such a manner that dis-harmony is
minimalised - and, by extension, opportunity for dis-ease or
illness to manifest is also minimalised.
emphasis is therefore placed on the development of Spirit, i.e.
Strength of Spirit - a concept in Japanese known as 'Fudoshin'
- 'indomitable spirit' or 'warrior heart', and Tenchi Seiki
Te-Ate utilises a variety of cognitive and emotional disciplines,
as well as a number of what might be considered more 'esoteric'
practices, to achieve this development.
