この本は、坂井秀雄(1949-2022)という東洋医学の専門家の人生の物語です。五人兄弟の末っ子の秀雄はサッカー漬けの高校時代を送る。3浪したが気がつくと自分のしたいことがなにかわからない。そこでお金をためてヨーロッパを一年間自転車で放浪の旅に出た。その間に鈴木大拙の禅の本を読み、探している何かなんか自分の外にはないんだ、本当にしたいことは普通の暮らしの中、今ここにあるんだ、と気づく。帰国のときにはっきりと、自分は指圧で人に喜んでもらうのが好きだ、帰ったら指圧の勉強をしようと決意していた。入学した東洋鍼灸専門学校には優れた教育者たちがいた。秀雄の理想の人生が始まった。鍼灸師となった秀雄は28歳で卒業後、すぐに東京都練馬区に「弘明堂」治療院を開業した。それから72歳で亡くなる日まで毎日、たんたんと秀雄は全身全霊で患者に向き合って過ごした。秀雄の人生のもう一つの軸はシュタイナー教育だ。同志と東京都国立市にシュタイナー教育を礎にした自主学校「遊」を創設した。「遊」には、西川隆範先生などの優れたシュタイナーの専門家が集まり、シュタイナー教育の熱いシーンが展開した。24歳の秀雄が書いた「自転車放浪記」収録。
この本はシュタイナーのバイオグラフィーワークの考えをベースに、著者が聞き取りし書き上げました。坂井秀雄というすぐれた治療家がどのように生きて、どうやって「神の手」を持つようになったのかが、描かれています。坂井先生は謙虚で、お茶目な面もあって笑わせてもらえる、最高の人格者です。


Written in Japanese. This book follows the life story of an oriental medicine specialist named Hideo Sakai (1949-2022). The youngest of five brothers, Hideo spent his high school years immersed in soccer. After consecutively preparing and attempting college entrance exams for three strait years, Hideo discovered that he did not know what he wanted to do in life, and going to college did not seem the right fit anymore. Wanting to at least do something with his life, Hideo saved up some money and set off on a year-long bicycle trip around Europe. While in Europe, he was deeply inspired by D.T. Suzuki's books about Zen Buddhism; and realized that there was nothing outside of himself that he was looking for, and that what he really wanted to do was right here, right now, within his own life. Upon returning to Japan, he discovered that he had a passion of making people happy with Shiatsu (acupressure massage). And decided to study Shiatsu in Japan. He enrolled in the Toyo Acupuncture and Moxibustion College (Toyo Shinkyu school), where he found excellent educators. Hideo's ideal life began. After graduating at the age of 28, he immediately started his own practice as an acupuncturist at the “Komyo-do” clinic in Nerima, Tokyo. And from then, until the day he passed away at the age of 72, Hideo spent each and every day helping his patients devout passion. Another aspect of Hideo's life included Steiner education. With his comrades, he founded “Yu”, an independent private school based on Waldorf education; in Kunitachi, Tokyo. At “Yu,” outstanding Steiner experts such as Dr. Ryuhan Nishikawa gathered, and a heated interest about Steiner education unfolded in Tokyo.
Some text from “Bike Trip Memoirs” written by 24-year-old Hideo is included.

This book was created through personal interviews that the author conducted with Hideo Sakai and is also based off of ideas of Rudolf Steiner’s biography work. It is intended to describe how an outstanding healer named Hideo Sakai lived his life,  and how he came to have these “Divine healing hands”. Hideo Sakai was humble character with a mischievous side that makes us all laugh; he was a man of supreme character.
