In a world of fast changing times, with many areas of polarisation and conflict, we need to connect to our human values. Bridging our differences and connecting to what unites us. Working together from a place of inquiry, wisdom and connectedness. This requires connecting into our own leadership, exploring ways of working from a space of peace and strength.

This workshop, or DOJO, is for you if you want to explore your personal leadership and inner strength for wiser action. 

A DOJO – meaning a place to practice for your life. 

In the Dojo we will:

  • Bring together the principles and practices of Aikido basics as a stimulus for conversation and reflection, and apply the Flow Game to seed wise action.

  • Explore ways of engaging and aligning personal passion and purpose with the work we want and need to be doing in the world.

  • Work to cultivate inner clarity, balance and wiser action regardless of circumstance. 

  • Offer an opportunity to focus on improving our sense of well-being in good company and with informed guidance

Join us for 3 days of practice, stepping forward into the next phase of who you are, to say yes to compassionate warriorship, and to leave behind whatever is destructive in ourselves and the world. 

We believe that there are some essential principles in life and in compassionate warriorship that are at the root of all great successful endeavours. These are what we wish to explore and practise here and in our dojo. Our dojo trains in practices that develop and build abilities for skillful actions and wise decisions. It is our hope that good people practise  and skillfully implement compassionate warriorship in their work and their lives; and that the practice of kindness and heartfelt flowing actions become normal and everyday events. 

In the midst of the challenges, complexities and demands of modern life, this workshop offers an opportunity to explore ways of working from a space of compassion, presentness, peace, strength. 

We invite you to explore our deeper sense of purpose and belonging as we face these interesting and challenging times in a field of practice using the principles of Aikido, the Japanese bokken (wooden practice sword) as a metaphor for our inner strength and courage , through Art of Hosting practices, and through playing the Flow Game together.

Warrior of the heart dojo at European Forum Alpbach 2019 - Tirol, Austria
Aug
15
to Aug 20

Warrior of the heart dojo at European Forum Alpbach 2019 - Tirol, Austria

How may my personal practice strengthen my leadership and service for our world now?

DISCOVERING MY PERSONAL POWER - To become aware of and accept my power and how I extend it in service of what is needed in the world now.

PRACTICE AS PATH - Discover the power of personal practice.

PRACTISING PEACE - Working creatively with opposing energies and challenges to harmonize our relationships with others.

Approach

  • We bring together the principles and practices of Aikido, a peaceful Japanese self defense art, as a stimulus for moving in harmony and be in reflection and work with The Flow Game to seed personal clarity and wiser action.

  • This approach and practise balances action and reflection through embodiment and inquiry.

    Our planned methodology

    ·     Basic Aikido Practice

    ·     The Flow Game - A way of finding clarity together

    ·     Circle Practice

    ·     Caligraphy - making your mark

    ·     Being in Nature

    ·     Reflection on practice

In Japanese, Dojo means ‘place of the way’.

It is traditionally considered to be the place for two activities: a training ground for learning the specific techniques of an art (martial, meditation, flower arranging, music, etc.) and an arena for individual self-realisation and individual growth.

A Dojo is about aligning personal power and purpose with the work we want and need to be doing for the world. If you are seeking to develop your leadership skills in service of others and of a more sustainable world, this workshop provides you with an opportunity to refuel, strengthen clarity and heart, and thus offer more conscious and bold actions for your community and our world.
