osensei2Morihei Ueshiba, (O’Sensei) was the founder of the non-violent Japanese martial art of Aikido. Translated, Aikido means: “The Way of Harmonizing your Energy with that of the Universe.” Seeing that the world needed a vehicle for the manifestation of world peace, O’Sensei developed Aikido as a path to inner peace by utilizing Aiki principles for self-development, healing, and the cultivation of purpose. He implored us to discover the true meaning of why we are here, now, living in these challenging times. Becoming clear in our hearts and minds as to our purpose, is a significant piece of the inner work of Aikido.
