Kotodama means “the sprit in words”. It is the practice of sound harmonisation meditation chanting. Special Aiki sounds that activate various qualities of Ki in the body. Quiet meditation is called “yin prayer” whilst making sound is “yang prayer”. It is very calming yet energising and activates one’s deep life power.
On a health level due to tis vibrational quality it dissolves blockages and stagnation. Spiritually it awakens our higher consciousness and strengthens our energy or Auric body.
Misogi means purification. From time to time it is good to cleanse oneself of any negativity or mental or physical stagnation. All Aiki practices are a type of Misogi. However a special type of Misogi is to go into deep nature (Shizen) and chant or meditate under waterfalls. Obviously this is an optional practice but a wonderful experience of purification, renewal and rejuvenation.
Ki Energy Cultivation
Ki energy training is the more internalised form of Aikido and focuses deeply on the qualities and strength of ‘whole body’ unification.
This is understanding what the centring diet is and applying it to bring out our deepest level of health. What are yin and yang foods and understanding what foods that our own body is reacting to which interferes with our ongoing success. The true goal of macrobiotics is to realise our full potential in all areas of our life – through establishing deep health. “ Health is the realisation of all your goals without force or struggles.”

Based on certain universal principles such as each part reflects the whole, what has a front has a back, and the body does not lie and others.
Aiki is the way harmonising of Ki energy. Aiki yoga then is stretching as a way of circulating Ki energy through various meridians of the body and also awakening the tsubos (energy points). This has greater effect than just working the body – because in the understanding of Aiki – the physical body is governed by the energy body – which the meridians and pressure points are part of.
Aiki Communication and the Art of Counselling
Aiki communication principles are a powerful way of creating harmony and effective solutions in all verbal interactions. Communication is the highest ability of human beings.

This is the truly effective way to world peace.

Through the expression of center to center communication and connection we move all interaction to win-win outcomes that are deeply nourishing to both sides. As we move into the 21st century we enter an era of co-creative and interdependent relationship as we move away from the adversarial and competitive approach. Aiki Relationship Training gives us the essential skills that enable us to be powerful centers of influence in all our relationships. From the personal through to business and the greater world at large.
Aiki Kids from 7-16 yrs. old
Akido Kid’s class is one of the most important classes offered in Shin Sen Dojo. When babies are born they radiate a Ki Energy as they are fresh from the source of Ki (the Hara). If you play with a baby or small child, you will notice they have the ability for example to hold their arm extended substantially (relative to their size) without the use of force or struggle. That is when you can see the evidence of Ki existing in the body in that pure state.
As children grow older most often they lose contact with that original state and develop conditioned responses to interaction.
In other words they can react in a non-centered way for example with anger, aggression or conversely feel overwhelmed and withdrawn.
By kids doing Aikido they reconnect to that original energy – we call Ki, and develop confidence to deal with interaction in a centered way. They can calmly deal with aggression so as to disarm bullying behavior. They develop group awareness-skills that teach them the power of inclusiveness and win/win outcomes.
On a physical level they reconnect to their bodies in an active way that increases health, fitness, suppleness and physical and mental resilience.
Kids Aikido is the way of developing self defense skills and beyond in a focused concentrated way whilst maintaining relaxed enjoyment and a sense of fun.
