Drop-In Meditation: Kiatsu
Tohei Sensei developed Kiatsu as a way for us to practice oneness of mind and body while experiencing the healing power of nature. By opening to the Ki of the Universe and connecting with our partner, we support their natural flow of Ki, accelerating the healing process.
Drop-In Aikido: Irimi
Tohei sensei taught us that when we become one with the universe and practice it's principles others will follow us gladly. When we are faced with a conflict, we often become tense and cause separation. Practicing "Irimi" or "entering" teaches us to relax, experience oneness and move together with another even in the face of extreme conflict.
