I attend an aikido class a few times a week. I’m still very much a novice, but it gets me moving and I find it is frequently the only time during the week when I am truly ‘present’ in my own body.
This weekend a friend invited me to attend a class at a nearby shinto temple. It was a great experience – a different style of instruction with a different emphasis in techniques. I didn’t think to bring my camera, but my daughter took some images.
It’s amazing to me that something like this is so close.
