Embodying Presence through a Martial Art
I’m proud to announce the publication of my article “Embodying Presence through a Martial Art,” which appeared in International Coach Federation’s Coaching World. It combines my two loves — coaching and Aikido.
I hope you enjoy it and find the practice of becoming more embodied useful.
Aikido, often called the “Art of Peace,” is a practice that cultivates connecting and blending with a partner. I strive to do this, even before I physically connect with my partner. There is an energetic connection that precedes physical contact. Through that connection and contact, I guide my partner throughout the technique. We remain energetically connected as the physical technique is executed and completed.
I do not lead or pull my partner. Instead, I practice remaining present and connected, first to myself, then my partner, trusting “us.”
