Getting The Other’s World Through Aikido

Facebook Live Replay w/ Miles Kessler

How good are you at taking the perspective of others in the middle of a conflict? Is it even something you consider important? After all, isn’t it basic human nature to protect your own point of view (not to mention your own body)? How does your basic survival instinct stack up with the higher intention of Aikido? Is Aikido’s central principle of “awase” (blending with another) still important to you when the chips are down and the conflict is on? What does “Getting The Other’s World Through Aikido” actually mean? Do you even care?

Facebook Live Replay w/ Miles Kessler

What does it mean to “take your Aikido off the mat”? As your Aikido skill develops in the dojo, is it also helping you to develop your “life skills”? Just how much is your practice impacting your life? As part of my “Aikido & The Evolution Of Response” blog series, I recently did a Facebook Live broadcast that gets to the heart of these questions; namely “3 Life Lessons From Aikido.”

Aikido & The Practice Of Delayed Gratification

Facebook Live Replay w/ Miles Kessler

I recently did a Facebook Live broadcast as part of my teaching series on “Aikido & The Evolution Of Response”. This facebook live segment was a supplement teaching to my previous blog post on “Aikido & The Survival Instinct.” In that video, I mentioned several practices for working with, overcoming, and integrating your basic fight, flight, freeze instinct. In this 2nd video in the series I lay out one of the key fulcrum practices at this stage – none other than “Aikido & The Practice Of Delayed Gratification.”

Aikido & The Evolution Of Response Series

I’m starting a new video series for the Integral Dojo audience called “Aikido & The Evolution Of Response.” In this muli-part video series, I’ll be teaching you the stages of vertical learning that come from a developmental system I’ve created called the “Evolution Of Response.” I’m kicking off this series with a teaching about your basic “hard-wired” intelligence, and how it relates to stress and conflict. This 1st video is called “Aikido & The Survival Instinct.”
