Eric- that sounds like an interesting exercise. Could you please elaborate a little bit? What are the "warm up", "work and peak" and "cool down" phases of the exercise, if any? What are the specifics on breathing during this exercise? What, if any, is the importance of the actual content of the phrase? What would some sample phrases be? What, if any, is the relationship between this exercise, and the phrases used in it with O'Sensei's work on Kototama? Or its relationship with Zen meditation? What are the psychological underpinnings of this exercise? What would a good amount of time be for a beginner in this sort of exercise? Etc.
Gomen Nasai for asking, but it sounds like an interesting exercise that would benefit all of us in reaching a more relaxed state of mind.
