Re: Which branch of Aikido emphasizes Spirituality?

Perhaps in these terms, - the "point" of Aikido, Aikido gives people the capacity to take down an attacker without hurting them, why? Because it relates to holiness and the ideal that its offensive to the Creator or the First Cause of the universe to kill and or hurt and maim people. Aikido teaches us to live our lives in such a way as to gain the favour of the Creator. How do we reach the Creator, chants, meditation, prayer etc. Ki, the point of Ki Energy perhaps the ideal that its meant to heal people spiritually and physically? This would be the start of the information I would be expecting from a spiritual branch of Aikido.
