Re: Which branch of Aikido emphasizes Spirituality?

My feeling has always been that aikido is as spiritual as you make it. I think it's a mistake to go looking for "spiritual" aikido training because there's no guarantee you're going to find someone whose idea of spirituality matches your own, and because there's nothing about aikido training in and of itself that qualifies someone as a spiritual instructor. Better to decide what kind of spirituality you want in your own life and then bring it to aikido with you.
