  1. Definately!
    As I sit here munching on carrots and checking out the new site, I have a true sense of vibrancy after a great practice this evening. Being ”restricted” by an injured knee at first made me highly strung about engaging, and keeping my focus out with my partner. But more and more I realized that indeed when I kept WITH them I was so much safer than fretting about on ”my own”. The restriction became acceptable in my/our awareness and the psychedelic experience continued!!
    As ever – HUGE- thanks Peri for our dojo and your ever inspiring way. Love the site 🙂

  2. I am really excited by what you say about keeping your focus WITH you partner and how that you felt safer. It hints to me something around the value of releasing defensiveness and how an approach based on self-defence can manifest as an isolating process. I have a sense of you “leaning” into your partner rather than bracing against. Thank you for your observation and practice and the emoticon (where do they come from?!)

  3. Hello,

    I’ve just taken a look at the new site. It’s very vibrant and compelling. I can see that the principles of Aikido offer a sound basis for your work which, like Aikido, encourages people to live fully. Keep up the good work and I hope to see you all again soon.

    With love
