I haven't posted yet anything, though I've been enjoying reading other threads, for a while.
My name is Ana-Maria, I'm from Bucharest, Romania, and I started practicing Yoshinkan Aikido this July
, which it's been a really nice experience for me. So, this is the site of our club: http://www.yoshinkan-aikido.ro/
I've been into Sahaja Yoga meditation for the last years (http://www.sahajayoga.org/)
, a method which is also centered on awakening the inner spiritual energy, which provided me with experiences I consider to be authentically spiritual --- and so it was for me a really good event to find a Dojo where people are similarily simple and innocent and I can train while being in quite profound a state of awareness. I have to say trainings feel much better then I had expected them to.
I knew about OSensei's spiritual achievements and I respected him a lot, but I had never met Aikidokas before, so it was great to actually meet people with a clear vision and presence achieved through this method.
So, it's good being there, and thank you, too, for allowing me to be part of this forum.
