Why? An embodied life supports a balanced, joyful and
awakened state of being. It is the vehicle through
which healing and empowerment occur.It is the ballast for navigating
strong energies and turbulent times.
How? We engage a process in which mind, body and
spirit are experientially collaborating and co-creating a unified field of
Presence. How do we know we are there? Because our experience of ourself and
the world we are in, begins to change; for the better. We use gentle movement,
inquiry, focusing, dialogue
and partner practices to experience ourselves at a better level.
What? The practices in this module will draw from the
Lineage and Principles of Aiki Consciousness. We will practice cultivating a
relationship with ourself, our body/mind, our awareness, our ground, our
center, our breath, our alignment, our energy and those energies that flow
through us. We will work with true relaxation which will allow our stress
levels to decrease and our vitality and creativity to increase.
Where? In the beautiful and serene studio of the Aiki
Consciousness Institute in Sebastopol.

Denise Barry Sensei began walking the
Aiki Path 43 years ago and has run her own school for the past 25 years. The
foundation of Aikido is to be grounded in an embodied state in order to allow
the energies of life to move through us in a harmonious way. She deeply
believes that these practices are the bedrock for navigating challenging life
situations as well as increasing our ability to be present for the most
intimate of life’s moments. Life, death, trauma, healing, partnerships,
accomplishments, setbacks, celebrations and simply experiencing the joy of a
moment. Through compassion, humor, storytelling, encouragement, clarity,
honesty and clear mirroring, she supports her students in their journey of integrating
an embodied presence with the challenges of daily life.
