To progress in Aikido, and thereby be healthier and more successful in daily life,
you need to mindfully include your body in everything you do.
Mind and body are not separate.
"You don't have to do anything to bring them together".
"Training is about getting out of your own way, and stop causing separation"
"The mind is a fundamental part of the body and they both continuously share information with each other"*
We practice/train to think without pre-conceptions, to perceive without judgement.
