What Others Are Saying About Sign Language of the Soul
The following review comes from
‘Sign Language Of The Soul: A Handbook For Healing by chiropractor and applied kinesiologist expert Dale H. Schusterman combines unique hand positions (mudras) with the symbols and words of Jewish mysticism drawn from that body of esoteric wisdom commonly known as the Kabbalah. Schusterman reveals just how to use the finders and hands in key positions which will connect with the body's own inherent energy. These finger and hand movements working with focused intent will result in an expansion of the body's inner awareness and enable both healing and balance. Enhanced with case studies drawn from patients of diverse physical and emotional conditions, Schusterman shows how using these techniques brought about healing, joy, and well being. Sign Language Of The Soul is especially recommended for providing readers with a six step plan for activating the "Tree of Life" process of personal healing and balance. A welcome addition to Alternative Medicine, Judaic Studies, Metaphysical Studies, and Kabbalah Studies reference collections and reading lists, Sign Language Of The Soul is commended as being a truly seminal and expertly presented work.’
This review was published in the ‘Voices of the New Earth’ ‘In these days of mounting medical costs and with all the dangerous side effects of commonly used drugs, it is exciting and refreshing to know about a new non-invasive system of healing. Dr. Dale Schusterman reveals procedures that evolved over the last 20 years of his chiropractic practice. It is based on the Kabbalah, the mystical branch of Judaism.
It focuses on mudras (hand gestures), which are reminiscent of ancient Hindu and Buddhist practices, hence the use of "Sign Language" in the title. This book explores many of the special hand "signs" that you see depicted in the hands of angels, spiritual teachers, and Masters in paintings and sculpture. Esoteric Judaism teaches about the Tree of Life, a symbol of the 32 pathways of consciousness. Schusterman adeptly shows that there is a one-to-one relationship between the map of the Tree of Life and the human body. Furthermore, he explains how to tune the body to this energetic source. Although the methods are based on esoteric principles, they have been thoroughly tested in clinical settings to demonstrate their ability to balance the spine, skull, meridians, and emotional system. You feel free and light in your body after one of these balancing sessions, which you can perform yourself.’

“In this book Dr. Schusterman has given us an insight into ways in which we can view the human body and communicate with it. The book is worthy of deep and thoughtful study.” Gladys Taylor McGarey, M.D., M.D. (H
‘Many years ago I came across a mind expanding text on the esoteric science of mudra--the use of specific hand and finger positions and gestures to connect with the body’s own energy flow--from the Buddhist perspective. To see it displayed in Buddhist, Hindu, and even Christian traditions was fascinating. Now I am intrigued to find a healing-oriented approach that combines these Eastern gestures with mudras, symbols, and words from the Jewish mystical tradition--especially the Tree of Life of the Kabbalah.
In Sign Language of the Soul, chiropractor and kinesiologist, Dr. Dale Schusterman reveals key aspects of this wisdom tradition and gives exercises, words and symbols for accessing and activating the pathways of the Tree of Life, the cosmic blueprint.
The mudras have meaning for the nervous system and the consciousness, and the fingers and their parts are associated with particular organs, glands/chakras and systems of the body as well as cosmic principles and the elements of nature. Each hand/finger position (illustrated throughout the book and in the appendices) causes a specific stimulation in the nervous system and in the biochemistry as well as a change or movement in the energy systems that envelop the body. Because body, mind, and soul are in fact one, the mudras can also awaken and stimulate different areas of consciousness.
This book will take some study for those unfamiliar with the Kabbalah, but the time taken will be well worthwhile for the benefits this system of knowledge and self-healing can provide. Many of the balancing and healing exercises take only minutes to perform yet have profound long lasting results as Dr. Schusterman’s patients attest in the case studies presented throughout the book.’ Review published in The Nexus New Times magazine September-October 2004
