On Feb. 25th, 2018 the Integral Dojo hosted a Community Call w/ Miles Kessler and Patrick Cassidy on our on-going “Aiki-Discussion” of the topic of “The Dharma Of Aikido.” In this 1st of 2 community calls, Miles, Patrick, and the “Aikido At The Leading Edge” global sangha discussed many aspects of Aikido as a martial art and Aikido as a spiritual Path.
Some of the points the came up in this wide-ranging “Aiki-discussion” are:
- The meaning of “Dharma” as ultimate reality
- What is Aikido’s Dharma?
- What is Aikido as a spiritual path?
- How to work with the ego’s tendency towards “zero-sum” results in conflict?
- The difference between pressure testing technique vs. pressure testing the self
- Is Aikido’s transformational potential being lost?
