Patrick Cassidy Sensei leading an Evolutionary Aikido seminar at Aikido of San Diego in 2012. Megan Palm, uke.

Evolutionary Aikido Seminar 2014 - Cassidy & Goldberg

Friday-Sunday - March 14-16, 2014 - San Diego, CA

Patrick Cassidy Sensei and Dave Goldberg Sensei will co-lead this Evolutionary Aikido intensive.

"Evolutionary Aikido" is about the practice and exploration of developmental processes available through the art of Aikido. It is a perspective on the art of Aikido, and not a style. It concerns not only the improvement of technical skill, but also a multi-dimensional transformation of ourselves. We look into what is our next step of being, and how do we make space for this new level of understanding, ability, and awareness to manifest. O-Sensei’s proclaimed realization, "I and the Universe are one," is the basis for Evolutionary Aikido practice. We face this and explore how to express this perspective of integrated unity in our Aikido. Aikido students of all affiliations are welcome.

Dave Goldberg Sensei's work in Aikido is inspired by the Founder's vision that Aikido is here to develop us as more harmonious and effective people.
