Meditation and Aikido
Do you think that meditation helps Aikido, or that O Sensie had meditation in mind when he made Aikido.
My dojo does not stress meditation and breathing from the hara etc. Could any one show me a good web site with directions.:ki:
I don't know a website, but if you're up for a trip to the bookstore or the library, two books I've liked are:
1. Zen Training, Methods and Philosophy by Katsuki Sekida
2. Taking the Path of Zen by Robert Aitken
You might also see if there are community college classes, or even a group that meets in your area... good luck
I may just do that. Thanks for the reply:ki:
Re: Meditation and Aikido
The Maui Ki Society has a short exerpt on Ki meditation from their handbook.
You might consider buying the newly revised Ki in Daily Life. This has a section on Ki breathing, at least the old version that I have did. A more involved book is William Reed's A Road Anyone Can Walk: KI, which is half bio on K. Tohei and half the Ki Society's approach to Ki.
If done in the correct manner, meditation and breathing exercise should help you relax completely. This is good for anything you do, especially Aikido.
