My take on it: aikido is not a spiritual practice...
I think Aikido can be a spiritual practice since to my mind spiritual practices are entirely individualized in nature. I would agree, however, it is not necessarily a spiritual practice, but that's not unique to Aikido either, since all practices, even those regularly accepted as "spiritual," can be described as such.
