Seminar by committee

by on August 23, 2015

Day three of the seminar in Toronto will be beginning shortly. Thus far we’ve had six hour-long sessions, each taught by a different member of the group, with Henry observing from the side.

While nobody claims to have gotten all of what Henry is teaching, it has been very interesting to see interpretations of his aikido from so many different angles.

Jeff happened to do a lot of talking during his session, which I don’t always have a lot of patience for, but I found his reflections and observations really resonating with me.

The most powerful was that, to do Henry’s one circle approach, your ego must accept that you are not the center, but in fact you are on the periphery.

It’s the process of maturing into adulthood, or the Copernican revolution, writ small.

And now I’m off to the dojo away from wifi…
