kotodama books

Are there any resources (books, video, recordings, etc.) in english out there that deal with the kotodama? I'd be interested in any that you may know of.

William Gleason book "The Spiritual Foundations of Aikido " covers Kotodama but the book tends to be a little esoteric.

I think John Stevens, "The Secrets of Aikido " has some Kotodama excersies in the appendix.

Below is a sight I stumbled across in my own search to understand kotodama...still searching.

The Kototama Principle

Peace and Blessings.
