The art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here for no other purpose than to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all that you encounter.

Morihei Ueshiba


Every piece contains the whole - Holographic Universe

What you believe you experience

What the mind represses the body expresses

What you resist persists

What you think you create

    What you create, you become

     What you become, you express

          What you express, you experience

  What you experience, you are

   What you are, you think   CWG


There is nothing I have to have, there's nothing I have to do, and there's nothing I have to be, except exactly what I am being right now.  The way to "get there" is to "be" there.  There's nothing you have to do.  You want to be happy? BE Happy.  You want to be wise? BE Wise.  You want to be love? BE Love.   CWG


All healing begins with learning to love yourself


is nothing so strong as gentleness and nothing is so gentle as real strength.  RWS


Do not allow your life to represent anything but the grandest version of the greatest vision you ever had about who you ARE.   Now what is the greatest vision you've ever had for yourself ?  - DECLARE IT-     CWG


My children who art in heaven, hallowed is your name, your kingdom is come, and your will is done, on earth as it is in heaven.  You are given this day your daily bread and you are forgiven your debts and your trespasses, exactly to the degree that you have forgiven those who trespass against you.  Lead your Self not into temptation, but deliver your Self from the evils you have created.  For thine is the kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever.


Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be converted from one form to another. Conservation law of Physics

If you tighten a string too tight it will snap

If you loosen the string too much it will not play

Follow a middle way and you will make beautiful music

A smile is the shortest distance between two people
Wherever you go there you are
Slow down breathe from your heart
Responsibility -- Ability to Respond

You will be liked or disliked for reasons beyond your control.

Structure implies relationships, perceptions implies an appreciation of relationships,  Every thing is connected.

Shinzen Dojo

Shinzen Dojo, is a special place indeed and made even more so by the energy people bring in doing their practice here. The word "Dojo" literally means - place of the way. At this dojo, as an Aikido dojo, a sacred space devoted to ones personal development in harmonizing, giving birth to, resonating with the creative consciousness, life energy of the universe, the essence of love.
The word and spirit of Shinzen is made up of two words: "Shin" - heart, soul, the clear mirror of beginner's mind; sincerity with no hidden agenda. This is "reitai ittai", body and spirit as one, the spirit of life or our original nature. "Shin" means "core" or "essence", it can also mean both "God" and "faith", or the essence... of love ... The word "zen" is virtue, it can also be known as the sword of judgment and courage, the ki of fire, which comes forth as compassion for the world. Zen in Sanskrit is a word for meditation, in Chinese, quiet contemplation, the Psalmist calls for a similar way ... Come to the quiet, Be still, and know that I am... So Shinzen the courage and sincerity to come to the stillness within and meet the light essence, the divine essence, the true essence, of who we are... surrendering into love. Meeting ourselves with compassion as we step out of our hiding places and move into the light, a resonance vibration with infinite possibilities.....
Words often fall short of the true meaning and yet with these words and choosing the name Shinzen for this dojo I have set an intention for those who come here, "fellow travelers", that we might meet ourselves in all our beauty, form and formlessness, and have the experience of the word made manifest in all its beauty....

All that being said, in truth the dojo is not really a place at all, it is not a building, it is not a place, it is where ever you are now, that is the place, the sacred space of the way, into which we attempt to bring a beginner's mind, and surrender into Love.

Come and share your practice with other travelers exploring the possibilities of Love.
