Beating the Drum with Laurie Nusbaum & Tres Hofmeister

The founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei said that “ A true warrior contests nothing.” An Aikido practitioner strives to engage in a way that expresses acceptance of and relationship with all things. How do we sit, stand, and move in a way that expresses that intention? How do you experience the relationship between the aikido mat and meditation cushion? How do you come to know this for yourself, practicing with and through others? Please join us as we explore these questions and share our experiences of how Aikido and Zen practices inform and support each other in this 3-day seminar at CMZC.  Contact for more information or to register.
