Polarities, Sex & Enlightenment

A Spontaneous Conversation With Mark Walsh, Part 2

In our previous chat, master facilitator Mark Walsh and I spoke about 3 phases of our personal development, namely “retreating from the world, returning to the marketplace and expressing our practice in virtual space” – and how each one of these moves comes with its set of challenges and learning curves.

To Inner, To Outer, To Online

A Spontaneous Conversation With Mark Walsh, Part 1

Well, I’m back from the Dead Sea Seminar for about 10 days now, and my life is finally getting back to normal. I’m still catching up on things, but I thought I’d make a quick blog post here of a video my friend Mark Walsh from Integration Training made with me out at the Dead Sea.

Meditation For Aikidoka - Community Call
November 5, 2016

“Sangha” is a communal space where people organize around the Dharma, universal principles, ultimate realities, and spiritual teachings. It is a space where we put our higher intentions in the center and allow the light of awareness to shine it’s light in all the dark places. It is a WE-SPACE where we come together in greater truth, goodness, and beauty.

It’s impossible to overstate the importance of having a “Sangha,” a spiritual community. It is important in Dharma and meditation traditions, and it’s especially so in Aikido.

The Art of Peace

The Art of Peace: Teachings of the Founder of Aikido (Shambhala, 1992)

This beautiful little handbook contains the inspirational teachings of Morihei Ueshiba, O’ Sensei himself. Each of its 112 short verses describes O’ Sensei’s perspective of the real way of the spiritual warrior. If you seek to explore the greater meaning of Aikido, and what it means in your life, then this book will give you a deep dive into the enlightened mind of the founder of the art.

Come train with me at Aikido Of Maastricht in Holland for an intensive Aikido weekend. This intensive is open to all styles and all levels and to people from other martial disciplines or dancers. You can also attend meditation classes during the seminar, completely free.
