In General The Jester Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Every now and then I receive a newsletter from the CASA:

I remembered then that I had once heard that in many
indigenous cultures the medicine man or shaman will ask
a person who is ill or despondent, "When did you stop
singing?" and "When did you stop dancing?" and I realized
I had lost a vital part of me along the way -my Jester.

1. to describe aikido to someone that has never heard of it before would be -- "it's like a dance, yoga and osteopath"

2. There is a fine line between education and entertainment
